Sailing "Old School" on San Pedro’s Rum Punch II

Thursday afternoon, I was invited for a sail and snorkel trip on San Pedro resident’s George Eiley’s Rum Punch 2.   I’d been on the classic wooden fishing boat once before and LOVED it.  This time we had a bigger group, lots of drinks and snacks and a beautiful day.  It was just as much fun.

Our plan was to sail up to Mexico Rocks snorkelling spot – an area off North Ambergris Caye with uber-clear water and lots of coral heads.

On the way up, Bonnie, our hostess, unpacked a bag of jello shots.  A bag!  Oh my…this might not end well.

Lime with vodka and pineapple with Malibu rum.

Beers and pringles.  All the makings for a solid frat party…with just one thing missing.

Oh good…here it is.  Jagermeister.

We arrived at Mexico Rocks and got in the clear, clear water.

Fish, the first mate and snorkel guide, was in charge of the underwater photography.

I think he did a pretty good job.

The water was really like a giant swimming pool.

Sun baked and a bit tipsy, we headed back to our home dock.

Captain Eiley is really amazing.  Low key, knowledgeable (he has been operating this boat for over 30 years!), and will stop anywhere you want.  You can plan your own schedule completely.  Full day?  Half day?  It’s up to you.  He also makes a pretty tasty rum punch.

Super fun afternoon.

To reach George, you can call:  226-2340 or 610-3240.  You will love this sail.
