A Moorings Signature Charter in Belize is one of the best vacations you'll ever experience!
Robert Eberwine, February 2008
Overview - Give us a snapshot of your time with The Moorings?
After a 7 day bareboat charter (The Moorings) in the BVIs, we were ready for something different and a little more luxury. The Signature charter was just the ticket and we were not disappointed. The boat, crew, food, and location was everything we wished for. 3 of our party of 6 own their own boats and we really appreciated the care that goes into the maintenance of the The Moorings fleet.Highlights - What were the most memorable experiences of your vacation and where on your itinerary did they happen?
The crew. Nick and Ily (Double Eagle) went out of their way to provide the best possible service. We enjoyed sailing, snorkling, kayaking, skurfing, kneeboarding, and exploring the various cayes. But the crew really made the difference. Not having to worry about cooking, cleaning, anchor watches, etc. was worth every penny.Tips - Do you have any advice for fellow Moorings guests visiting this destination?
Belize is much more challenging than the BVIs or other populated areas. Once you leave the base, you are on your own. There is not much food, water, ice, or anything else but sun, saltwater, and reefs. The area is beautiful, but not for the novice. Do the easy stuff in the Med or BVIs. Take a real vacation in Belize and do a crewed charter. Yachts - What features of your yacht did you like the best?
The outside living areas present in a catamaran are the best. We also liked out 3 cabins and 3 full heads (the crew using the 4th cabin and head). All-in-all, a very comfortable boat.Crew - What did you think of your captain and chef?
See the highlights section, but you cannot overestimate the effort these two did to make our trip the best.Is there anything else you would like to share?
After our charter, 3 of us decided to venture into the interior (San Ignacio) and explore some Mayan ruins for 3 days...It was the experience of a lifetime. We did a similar thing in the BVIs by staying at a resort after the bareboat charter. The charter experience is great, but stay a few days and see something on land. You've come all this way...stay awhile and enjoy!
