Sailing from Belize next year

We are planning on chartering out of Belize next year; 4 couples, big catamaran for a week. It will be our first time in this area. What can people tell us about provisioning and places to visit for snorkeling and eating? We believe there is limited capability to bring in food supplies on the airlines.

If you are leaving from San Pedro, provision there. Caye Caulker, one island south of San Pedro, had a store when we were there 5 years ago. South of that there was nothing at all. Provisioning at San Pedro is expensive, compared to the US, but much easier than bringing a week's worth of food for eight people on an airplane. I don't know the restrictions on bringing food into the country.

Lots of incredible snorkeling around there. Be sure to post your trip highlights when you return.

I've chartered out of Placencia. Where ever you charter from, you need to provision there. There really are no places to reprovision. You can catch or buy/barter for fish, conch, and lobster. We even traded charging a cell phone for a bucket of cleaned conch. Lots of secluded anchorages and great snorkeling. The charts are notoriously bad so keep a close watch on where you are going.

Difference between a power boater and a sailor out on the water: A power boater is going some place special, a sailor is already there.
