Caye Caulker Catamaran Sail with Seaduced: Mutton Snapper, Manatees, Jet Skis, Good Times
I may have mentioned that I love to go on a catamaran sail to our sister island of Caye Caulker. And I may have mentioned that it is my favorite trip from Ambergris Caye. In fact, I may have mentioned it in the countless blog posts that I’ve written over the past couple years about this year topic (see below). I’ve been on this trip at least 25 times. And each time it’s a little different and a little bit awesome.
Lots of sun and snacks, snorkelling at the two best snorkel stops, a 2 hour stop at Caye Caulker for lunch and a look about and always more…good times.
Here are the pictures from our trip with Seaduced by Belize yesterday from San Pedro to Caye Caulker on a perfect August day for sailing.
Sailing out to Hol Chan. Loving the bean bags.
The honeymooners on our trip from Portland, OR…congrats guys!
Our second snorkel stop was Shark Ray Alley…the sharks rushed over to say hi.
Do these sharks make me look fat?
I hung back to take some pictures.
Once we were out of the marine reserve, Manuel brought out a fishing pole.
Palma, one of the crew members, pointed us onward!
Next time I need to ask him the story behind that LOCO tattoo. He’s a great guy and not one to shy away from posing for the camera. Perhaps when Jamie returns to NJ, I can talk him into being my new blog clown. Palma the blog clown. It sounds good, right?
A FISH! Everyone ran to the back of the boat to reel in a BIG mutton snapper. We haven’t had this kind of luck fishing since we ran into a huge tuna/shark/frigate bird frenzy outside the reef a few years ago when the sea was as flat as glass.
We stopped for lunch in Caye Caulker. If we don’t go to Syd’s for fried chicken, it’s Rainbow Grill over the water. Love the colors.
The lobster tacos were good…but needed a bit of sauce…maybe sour cream?
The sign to indicate the ladies room. Cute.
We headed down to the split to hang out for a bit…Caye Caulker can be HOT and new second level at the Lazy Lizard always has an amazing view and a great breeze.
I always take a picture of this boat. I have about 50…it’s so pretty to me.
Time for the lazy sail back to San Pedro…2 hours of rum punch, sun and napping. Palma grabbed my hand and showed mestwo manatees as we sailed! AWESOME! Hand holding and manatees? That was a first for me.
But wait…who is this showboating? Our friend Debbie was waiting for us at Hol Chan with her jet ski. This could be a tricky transfer.
And then Jamie took over…
Debbie claims that this thing goes 50+ miles per hour…we will let you know. We are going to take it out again tomorrow.
Thanks so much to Seaduced for ANOTHER amazing trip. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT. It NEVER grows old.
