CATAMARAN DREAMING ON: Inner Barrier Reef and Cayes 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. (Click Here)
  • 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. (See below)

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 Marina on a reach to Rendezvous Island. Great place to snorkel and anchor for the first night.

Day 2 – Sail 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 3 – Through the cut in the barrier reef for a down wind sail along the reef to Gladden Cut. Fish along the way for a chance to catch Mahi Mahi, Wahoo or Tuna. Anchor inside the reef at Gladden Cut.

Day 4 – Sail to Ranguana Cay where there is more snorkeling and an opportunity for a rendezvous dive.

Day 5 – A sail north on the inside of the reef will bring us to the Queen Cays (also known as Silk Cays). There are restaurants on both Ranguana Cay and Hatchet Cay (near the Queen Cays)

Day 6 – A day exploring the local cays with some more snorkeling.

Day 7 – After a morning snorkel or rendezvous dive we can sail to Placencia Village where guests can go ashore and experience a bit of village life. Placencia’s famous “Main Road” is a 3 foot wide concrete path meandering through the sand, passing lots of little local shops and restaurants . A few minutes spent on this “Road” and you will probably meet everyone in Placencia!

Day 8 – Our final morning involves a short sail back to The Placencia Marina
