We were alerted to the presence of a huge ship at our beautiful reef and truly, you could not miss this behemoth. It is the USAV Brandy Military Station measuring 53meters x 10meters, and appears to have entered Belizean waters on Saturday, June 13th (according to Port of Belize logs). The vessel was seen at around 3:30PM attempting to pass the ‘Entrada San Pedro’ cut. It is now outside of the Belize Barrier Reef making its way back to Belize City. The USA Navy was in Ambergris Caye conducting a special training mission. It seems we have quite a few military vessels traversing our waters these days! We have confirmed that indeed the crew is made up of Navy officers parttaking in the United States Southern Command's Exercise Tradewinds.
