My first trip to Belize and my second ASA flotilla. Ellis and Christina were a wonderful team and very accommodating. I know the guys really enjoyed tweaking the sails to get the most out of the Palometa and I enjoyed the beautiful, almost-deserted cays, the clear, turquoise water and the sense of peace.
Words cannot decribe it, Ellis and Christina were amazing, both were extremely friendly and cordial and worked hard to ensure we had a very enjoyable vacation. The meals provided by Christina were outstanding and of a good variety. Both ensured all our needs were met and Ellis was more than willing to get up early to sail the boat to a new location so other clients could connect up with a trip.For us it was one of our best vacations ever, we will definitely do this trip again. We highly recommend this trip to anyone interested in taking an exotic trip to Belize or any other location.
We were fortunate enough to sail with BSV for two weeks. We sailed the northern islands the first week and the southern islands the second week. We had a different crew for each trip and both were EXCELLENT in accommodating our every need. We have sailed in Tahiti and the Virgin Islands. This was by far the best!!! The yacht, a 50' Lagoon was 1st class all the way, as was the food, day trips, water toys and crews. There were 8 of us including crew and we found the yacht had plenty of room to find your own space. The sailing grounds are super comfortable, no swells really. Love that they don't nickel and dime on all the extras they provide. Crews were incredibly knowledgable of the area. We caught amazing fish and had it for dinner!!!! Felt so safe at all times. Great experience for families, girls trip, guys trip, honeymooners, reunions, etc... We are booking our next one with them NOW!!!!

My husband and I are experienced travelers and sailors and are used to the vicissitudes of travel so we were astonished by the service we got from Belize Sailing vacations. From the moment we arrived at the airport everything went almost magically well - including the sailing, the anchoring, the food and the coordination with a great dive outfit in Placencia. Christie and Ellis our first mate and captain, were beyond incomparable in their service, flexibility and amiability. Ellis had my husband so relaxed , he failed to react in his characteristically hostile manner to a surly bartender on St George's Cay.
My husband surprised me with a 4d/4n trip for my birthday. The weather was perfect, the water was beautiful and the food was incredible! Even though all the activities and places that we traveled to were amazing, I don't believe the experience would have been the same without out our crew (Matt & Danny!) If you have the pleasure to have either of them captain (or cook) you are in for a treat!!! Again thank you BSV for a birthday to remember, and thank you to our crew who made the experience all the better!
