Well where's the update been? I just got back and had to find out for myself about the demise of the Offshore Express! This wonderful ol' boat went down in June and no one said anything??? The picture in my mind of it going out to sea as the sun is coming up as I sit in front of Ruby's with my breakfast and then coming back the next afternoon with lots of sunburned smiling people on the top as I sit at Coconuts with my Beliken is a "Ambergris memory." I had some great times on that boat and will miss it! As if that wasn't enough, I was at Palapa on Friday (a must stop on my 1st full day every trip) and found out that SWEET RUBY ISN'T WORKING THERE ANYMORE--oh no!!! Caught up with her later though--she is bartending at the Pier.
--And bbnx and turnbun--I was at Fido's on Thursday nite (sorry didn't get there until 8:40--Belize time ya know--)and didn't see ya'll. What happened? Or did I already have too many Belikens and not see you?

Well here's some news. On Moday this week our 55 foot cruiser was delivered from the States. We are in the process of outfitting her to do extended overnight trips to the outer atolls including Turneffe, Lighthouse and Glovers. We will also be doing Whale Shark trips next year when they come in. We are proud to announce that Horace(the captain for the Offshore Express) and his wife Sarah (from Caribe Island Dive Shop) have joined the Barefoot Diving Team. They will work with us to continue to provide top quality diving for our clients. We also have put into service the former "Blue Hole Express" which has been completely redone from stem to stern and renamed "Barefoot Express". We will have all our trips in operation when we return from vacation on October 1st. Watch our website for pictures and pricing on the new additions to our fleet.
