Snorkeling Rendezvous Caye, Belize

Wednesday, November 25, 2015

Belize is one of those ports you have to tender to if you want to get to Belize City.  With our excursion we actually went the opposite direction.  We headed off the coast to Rendezvous Caye, a tiny 3 acre island in Belize's Barrier Reef. 

This was our first time snorkeling and I was a bit nervous because I have never liked those face masks, but it ended up being fine for me.  Josh, on the other hand, did not have a good time with this.  He kept having issues with his mask, so he had the kayak guy take him back to shore.  I really enjoyed snorkeling and think this was a great first experience.   The reef wasn't quite as large as I was expecting, but I was with the beginners so that may have something to do with it.  The more experienced snorkelers went to the other side of the island and I think there was more there.   After snorkeling, we had time to grab a bite to eat and relax for about an hour and a half.  

The boat ride to and from was very enjoyable.  It was about 45 minutes long and the views were amazing.  We were also able to talk to one of the guides about Belize and it's culture, which was great. 

This is a Bucket List item:
