CATAMARAN DREAMING ON: Atoll Itinerary for Belize Yacht Charters


There are multiple itinerary options for charters commencing from The Placencia Resort and Marina in Belize. Dreaming On has prepared two sample itineraries for our purusal.

  • The Atoll itinerary heads north to one of the channels through the barrier reef, to take us to Turneffe Atoll and Lighthouse Reef. (See Below)
  • The Inner Barrier Reef and Cayes itinerary takes us in a circle through the inner deep water channels, amongst the cays with some anchorages just inside the barrier reef as well as some sailing along the barrier reef. The Belize Barrier Reef and the many cays inside and atolls outside are famous for their fantastic diving opportunities. (Click Here for itinerary)

All of Dreaming On’s itineraries include great diving opportunities. We can arrange Rendezvous Diving on request with local, professional dive organisations for any divers on board. Diving with a local dive organization, whose Dive Masters dive these waters every day, ensures that our guests enjoy the best possible diving experience.

Day 1 ‐ Depart The Placencia Resort & Marina sailing North up the inner channel to Blue Ground Range. Then work our way east through patch reefs to anchor for the night just inside the barrier reef at South Water Cay. Great snorkeling and rendezvous diving opportunities here as well as just north at Tobacco Cay and near Carrie Bow Cay. This is all part of the Belize Marine Reserve. There are three restaurants on the cay. Guides can also be arranged for flats fishing.

Day 2 - Through the South Water Cut and set sail to Turneffe Atoll. There is good snorkeling here and exploring the waterways throughout Turneffe with a dinghy or kayak is very interesting.

Days 3 to 6 - We continue on to Lighthouse Reef and drop anchor on the west side of Long Cay. Arriving at Lighthouse Reef early in the week will allow us to spend up to 3 days at this amazing atoll. Take advantage of the fabulous rendezvous diving opportunities along the Lighthouse Wall. Advance divers can arrange to dive the Blue Hole. Another option is to take a shore excursion to Halfmoon Cay to see the Bird Sanctuary. The wall at Halfmoon Cay also offers beautiful diving.

Day 7 ‐ A downwind sail from Lighthouse to the Barrier Reef. Anchor just inside the reef at Tobacco Cay.

Day 8 - Our final morning will be a sail back to The Placencia Marina.
