Why Manager chose Belize District
Belize is a unique place, full of pristine, unspoiled and natural beauty. Access to the ocean makes it even more wonderful, and opens countless possibilities, from experiencing the second largest barrier reef in the world to exploring hundreds of sun swept tropical islands. Belize provides easy access to three major offshore atolls. Coral reefs extend throughout 130 miles along the coast of Belize; its waters, protected from the ocean swell, are full of fish, coral and other fabulous creatures. Experienced snorkelers, divers and complete beginners have a chance to enjoy the barrier reef – the coral is magnificently colorful and forms bottom canyons, arches, and spires, putting you into direct contact with surreal underwater landscapes.
What makes this Yacht unique
I’ve been sailing many yachts and tall ships between 35 and 495 feet long and each of them had its advantages and disadvantages. When I first set eyes on the Lagoon 43 Power Catamaran it didn’t take me long to assess the exceptional attributes of its 750 square foot area. The Lagoon 43 Power Catamaran has a nice classic shape. This definitive sideline shape provides double stability and even more usable space. This design ensures smooth rides for your holiday cruises. Convenient, spacious cabins with bathrooms and air conditioning make your luxurious vacation even more comfortable. The stern platform is a favorite place for snorkelers, divers, water sports, and sunbathers. The second deck provides a perfect spot for fishing enthusiasts. My sea experience convinced me to choose a power catamaran for commercial charters since it provides more options and moves more easily. Lagoon 43 Power is fitted with two soundproof engines, which makes it possible to move around regardless of weather conditions. Aboard there is also space for 20 diving tanks and diving equipment.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
We had an outstanding experience sailing from island to island with Robert! The accommodation was great and allowed us our own private space. The meals were healthy and well prepared! Great experience for my wife and I!
I would not hesitate to book it and create memorie
I wanted to write a review of my family’s experience with Captain Robert and Calypso Charters. I will begin by saying that this trip, start to finish, is our entire family’s favorite vacation. Like many of you, we did not fully know what to expect and even thought about only going for a few nights just to be sure. However, we booked the full week and it was the best decision we could have possibly made. Captain Robert is the consummate professional. He began the trip by letting us know that he is always there to assist, but would not get in the way of family memories being made. His knowledge of the boat and the surrounding Belizean islands is nothing short of incredible. Our entire process began with excellent communication that outlined my family’s interests, including food/drink likes/dislikes in order to stock the boat with appropriate provisions. Once onboard, Captain Robert and I made final decisions regarding the agenda for the week, including which islands made the most sense for my family. Although he is happy to set off north for anyone interested in the more tourist locales of Caye Caulker and San Pedro, he was incredibly flexible to my family’s desire to go south and see some of the smaller more quiet and pristine islands. For us, this was the perfect direction, including Goff’s Caye, Rendezvous, Bluefield Ranch, Tobacco and South Water Caye.
Although I would not have thought this when I booked the week, one of our favorite parts of the adventure was the food and beverage portion of the trip. Captain Robert made an excellent decision on his chef, as Iris was talented in the kitchen and incredibly sweet. We always enjoyed when the bell rang for breakfast, lunch, coffee/tea and desert, as well as dinner. We knew that Iris would accommodate any needs that we had and create a perfect concoction, including dietary restrictions. On a side note, for those that fish or hunt lobsters (in-season of course), Iris is willing and able to have it paired with delicious sides later in the day for dinner! If you are thinking about this trip, I would not hesitate to book it and create memories that will last a lifetime. Thanks to Captain Robert and to Iris for an unforgettable trip.

An amazing family dream vacation
My family and I just got back from the most amazing week long vacation. With Captain Robert at the helm and Iris in charge of the meals this was a carefree, exciting, and incredible trip. We got to see a lot of the islands and enjoy the water. We scuba dove and frequently snorkeled. The kids loved it! We kayaked, snorkeled with rays and sharks, my husband fished out of San Pedro caught bonefish and we all enjoyed the islands. We got so much out of this trip that after eating our delicious dinner we would fall to sleep with the sound of the water gently lapping our boat. It was an amazing trip and I would recommend Robert's Catamaran adventure to anyone who wants to really enjoy Belize!

WOW, what an amazing holiday
Our family of four, with two adult “children” in their early twenties, had a fabulous week. We would absolutely do this again. From the day we first contacted Capt. Robert, he earned our trust as an experienced captain and for his considerable knowledge of the many Belizean cayes and reefs in the area, as well as for his PADI certifications. Full disclosure, my husband and I are boat owners ourselves, but it was a new experience for us to go to a different part of the world, and to be able to enjoy it so thoroughly. What a treat not to concern ourselves with boat maintenance, trip planning, navigating unknown waters, and provisioning/cooking for everyone. This tropical experience is spectacular, totally away from it all, but also safe in every way. All our SCUBA needs were carefully attended to (many times daily)! As for the underwater experience, my daughter said she felt like she was in the movie “Finding Nemo.” We also kayaked and fished, and enjoyed other innovative water sports.
At the end of the day, while my husband and I were content to languish over balmy sunsets (accompanied by our beverages acquired from duty-free when we first arrived); our kids took special delight in being ferried ashore at to islands which offered a little after dinner music. Oh! And I need to mention that Rafaella is a gifted cook and spoiled us rotten. She prepared fresh vegetables and a scrumptious local fruits with every meal. I don’t think I have ever tasted more tender lobster. As for me, the best part was sleeping under the stars (although a cabin was available). This was feasible because the mosquitos typically associated with Central America are not really an issue on the serene azure waters. Glorious!
Amazing Experience Liveaboard Luxury Catamaran
We had a perfect time with Robert on the boat, it was one of our best vacations and we will definitely come back! 7 days is perfect, because we saw many different spots, wonderful colors, little islands and we never got boring. The whole day we had things to do as snorkeling, fishing, kayaking, diving, cooking, relaxing and visiting some Islands. We loved the Caribbean feeling and are still missing the fresh air ! The best experience was seeing the dolphin family around the boat and feeding the sharks! Wow! Robert is a great captain and I couldn´t imagine somebody who is prepared better than him. He can fix everything if necessary, he is patient and responsible and also a very good cook and Dive Master! His pancakes with banana are the best! When we came into a tropical storm he was perfectly prepared and it was a big adventure for us. The boat and the cabins are nice and very clean! Sometimes Robert needs help and you are in the middle of nowhere. We always took care about the drinking water and we never put on the A/C to not to waste combustible. Anyway it was perfect for us, because we knew that and adapted. Our best decision was not to have a cooking lady because we love cooking, but if you wish there can be one preparing the food and cleaning up. We will come back Robert and I´m sure we will send you some more german, Mexican groups and we were already showing the fotos to everyone! Thanks again for everything and you are always more than welcome in Mexico! All the best for you from Lore, Pablo, Xaime & Esther
This was our first experience staying on a boat and it was one of the best vacations we have ever had! We had three couples in our group and the boat was the perfect size for us. The cabins were clean and the boat was well stocked. We had an amazing trip from start to finish. Captain Robert was a great host. He knows the area very well and was able to adjust our itinerary to accommodate some windy/choppy weather. We had the best time snorkeling at Hol Chain Marine Reserve with the sharks and stingrays. The captain arranged to bring a guide, Noel, and he was the best--very knowledgeable about the marine life and the best areas to snorkel. The sharks and stingrays were amazing and Noel clearly knew how to handle them. We enjoyed seeing plenty of other marine life during our trip...dolphins swam with our boat and manatees greeted us one morning. We visited several small islands and had plenty of opportunity to snorkel and kayak. We chose to cook our own food and the captain did a fabulous job stocking the boat with exactly what we wanted. We would definitely recommend this as it was the perfect combination of adventure, fun and relaxation. It was an experience we will never forget and we can't wait to do it again.
We will pick up you at the airport.
