We booked on very short notice for a 4 night stay on the Leopard Palometa. We filled out our preference sheet and we were on our way. From the moment we stepped off the plane, our driver to the boat was great, and he brought us to the dock were we met the most amazing hosts. Our Captain Francesco, and his wife Michela were so friendly, they made us immediately feel welcome. Russ is a picky eater, Sandy is a food lover, Michela made appetizers, and meals that made both of us so happy and full. We had cocktails on request, beer always available and anything else we might want to drink. The stops on our 4 day trip were amazing! Francesco had a wonderful route planned out for us that involved stops on two almost deserted islands, time for kayaking and plenty of snorkeling. They also arranged for a wonderful snorkeling guide, Ellie, from Caye Caulker who spent all afternoon with us, showing us the amazing reef system of Belize. Francesco and Michela also shared their love of sailing with us. We are novice sailors, and they shared with us their knowledge, answered all our questions and let us try our hand at a few things. At the end of our 4 days we have gained two new friends, and have memories of an incredible vacation.

My husband and I along with four friends vacationed with Belize Sailing Vacations on a four day charter. I honestly don't know where to begin....This was our first charter and it certainly exceeded our expectations. They were even able to fulfill a last minute request from my husband to have lovely flowers in each cabin for Valentines Day and they met us with a smile as soon as arrived at the boat. Our crew was AWESOME! They were a married couple from Italy, Francesco and Michela, and they were FABULOUS! We felt completely safe and in great hands with our Captains sailing ability and the first mate, Michela, was outstanding! They both absolutely made our trip!!!!! I truly believe that your crew is a HUGE part of the whole experience and we couldn't have asked for better. Along with being the first mate, Michela was responsible for all of our meals and more importantly our drinks! She was an amazing cook and every single meal and snack tasted incredible! The diversity in the drinks was incredibly impressive and we never went thirty or hungry. They went above and beyond to fulfill all of our request. Our cabins were clean and I don't know how she did it all, but our beds were made and bathrooms were all tidied up as soon as we returned from breakfast. They both were super friendly and made us all feel completely at home! It was as if we were traveling with our long life friends!
I will say that I wish all of the details on the front end were made a little more clear and not so vague. Thank goodness I ask a lot of questions....but other than that it was an incredible vacation and we will definitely sail with them again.
Francesco. Thanks so much for an unforgettable 5 days!
We swam, kayaked, and learned to paddle board. We requested local cuisine and Michela delivered superbly with both delicious meals and snacks. We are still talking about her conch ceviche, hummus, paella, and coconut chocolate dessert! If you want a trip of a lifetime then choose Belize Sailing. Every person we had contact with was a pleasure to deal with. You will only need a few items: shorts, tees, swim suits, 1 long sleeve shirt and flip flops. A deck of cards is good to have as well.

Michela and Francesco are beyond amazing! Yes I’m even talking about them before the incredible trip. From the minute we stepped foot on the dock we were in their hands. Greeted with warmth and a sense of family. The trip could have been great, but instead it was amazing! Michela and Francesco seamlessly had everything we could wish for planned from day trips snorkeling on the protected reefs, swimming with sharks, stingrays, turtles, sea horses and more to an unexpected need for a therapeutic massage for a sore back (bad horseback ride before the trip). They literally had Belize resources on speed dial and knew everyone we encountered. Our family also asked them to handle our wedding vow renewal for our 20th wedding anniversary. At sunset off the back of the catamaran, it was everything we could ask for. Oh, and I’d be mistaken not too mention that Michela can cook!! More like a chef I’m gluten free and my daughter is allergic to nuts. She handled that with ease making tasty treats to decadent meals. You will not only enjoy your trip, but you will miss them both when you leave.

My husband and I signed on to this trip because we were happy to spend 5 days with the two other couples who had already committed to go. They're 4 of our favorite people, so of course, we'll go-guaranteed good time! But, I didn't anticipate how amazing the experience would be. Both Michela and Francesco provided an incredible vacation. I felt completely at home from the first. Not like a customer but like a guest. As I described to friends upon our return, Miki took care of us like we were guests in her home rather than chartered clients. And she cooked like she should be doing that for a living! I had assumed that meals would be pretty basic on a catamaran...oh no, every meal was eagerly anticipated! I took home recipes and tips. I really can't say enough. I knew it would be hard to leave the 2 other couples who had chartered the boat with us, but I had no idea it would be hard to leave our hosts, Miki and

We took our family of 7 for a 3 day trip to the jungle then 4 days on the Palometa 47' catamaran. We did not think it was possible to enjoy anything more than our jungle experience but Belize Sailing unanimously did just that! Michela and Francesco were so warm and welcoming, without being obtrusive. We felt like they were family when we left. They tailored our stay to our request for a mixture of relaxation and exploration/adventure. We visited Caye Caulker, San Pedro, and snorkeled several locations to see fish, rays, turtles, eels, and nurse sharks.
