This is our first trip to the island and by reading the posts on this message board, we can't wait. We're staying at the Belize yacht club and were looking for "as another post reads", bars close enough to stumble home from. I can't tell from the map how far away are we from downtown.

We also plan on renting a catamaran and one of the group is a captain. Any ideas on a place to rent one? And, ant special places for a one day sail.

Appreciate your thoughts

I am not sure but the belize yacht club looks like it is definitely within stumbling distance from bars on the south end of town. All I know is that casa picaso has half priced margaritas after 9pm so thats where I will be

It's a bit of a jaunt but you can do it. I've stumbled home (Boca del Rio) from Crazy Canuks, many's the time.

A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

Catamaran rental. That can be a bit of a stretch. Even for the most experienced the waters inside the reef can be, at best, a bit tricky. A local captain is highly advised if not required. In our experience the possibility of day rentals without a local captain are rare and generally unavailable. Save yourself the angst, arrange for a private day sail with a local captain and relax, enjoy. As an example, El Gato comes to mind. We have used the boat privately several times with a small group. They will go and do what you want to if you make that known up front.

Are you talking a Hobie or a 30'+ cat? Hobies you can get but no one here will bareboat a cruising cat for the day. TMM has a 5 day minimum on their cats as it's not worth the turn around costs on anything less.

If you just want a day trip on an open deck cat then I suggest No Rush or El Gato. Seaduced has a Fountaine Pajot 38' that they do day trips on as well. Any way you go it will be their captain and unless you charter the entire boat there will be others on board for the party.

You are about a mile out of town, not really far, just down the beach, should have no problem stumbling home. Keep you left foot in the water and walk 'til you get there.
I wasn't aware that you could do any bare boat rentals on AC, because of the reef, use a guide.
