 Belize: Blue Water, Green Jungle

"Belize is a wondrous place. It is full of uninhabited islands, virgin reefs, deep jungles, exotic animals, and a history that dates back to the dawn of civilization. This part of the world has fascinated me for years and I was eager to explore the islands and jungles of the ancient Mayas. When I looked into doing a bare boat in Belize I discovered that I would be restricted to sailing inside the barrier reef. Although the Belizian barrier reef is the second largest in the world, this limited cruising ground just wouldn’t cut it, since the world class sailing is amongst the atolls outside the barrier reef. Fortunately, a quick check of the charter companies on the Multihulls Magazine web site (www.hypermax.com /multihullsmag) yielded Fantasea Charters and the crewed 45 foot custom catamaran Stingray. The crew of Mike and Donna Hill would be most pleased to take us to the atolls and would even arrange for jungle accommodations and jeep rentals. Macho man that I am, I was sold."
