The semi-private option has the same itinerary as our regular Mexico Rocks Day Sail (minimum 8 and maximum 16 guests), but with the minimum of only 4 guests and the guarantee of no more than 8 guests on-board. This is something unique with us on the island, a great option to avoid crowds but yet share the fun with some other guests.
Our semi-private tours are also upgraded with our *Premium* Belizean buffet: Our captain's BBQ fish with veggies and secret sauce and our chef's home-made stewed chicken, rice and beans, flour tortillas, coleslaw, pico de gallo and fried sweet plantain.
*Premium* - the buffet on our semi-private tours also include corn on the cob and your choice of 2 skewers: shrimp, beef or mushroom

Explore the pristine Northern coast of Ambergris Caye, with amazing blue waters and beautiful views along the way. While we start our morning sail, we serve you fresh fruit and meat-pies. In the end of 2015 Mexico Rocks became a part of the Hol Chan Marine Reserve, to protect its rich marine life and precious corals. We do our first stop for snorkeling there and then continue to our favorite spot - a shallow area close by the reef, that is just like a natural pool (great for non-swimmers as well)! Here we make a break to relax in the shallow warm water, while the crew prepares our famous *Premium* Belizean buffet on-board. After lunch we return South doing a second snorkel stop at Tres Cocos. Open bar with local rum, vodka, gin, soft drinks and juices is included. Try the specials, rum punch and "panty rippers"!

***PLEASE NOTICE. Being on a set route with an itinerary to fulfil we always must use the engine, with different potential depending on the timing and if we can also use sail-power. We don’t always use the sail, depending on the route, the wind conditions and various other factors.
**Using only sail and no engine, we’d just be able to go in one direction according to the wind and if we have the wind against us, this often will force us to go in zig-zag. This is not possible inside of the barrier reef due to restricted space, shallow waters, rocks and other obstacles (all our day tours and charters with no exceptions are made inside of the barrier reef) and regardless of the wind direction, using only sail of course also makes it impossible to assure guarantee and control the speed the way you can with engine use.. This of course causes a delay of the activities, or better said, we wouldn’t have enough time for the activities and couldn’t guarantee an itinerary within a time-frame – it is very important to let us know in advance if you want to be sailing without engine power since this restricts the itinerary significantly, but is not impossible for part of the charter knowing this request in advance.
*We only use the main sail on the tours. The jib sail is not opened for several reasons: more than anything it is a safety prevention, since wind gusts can make the lines move and hit somebody and the sail can be experienced as being “in the way” of guests being seated comfortably. Especially when mixing alcohol into the picture we always take our guests safety first and that is an important reason why the main sail is the one being used.

Mexico Rocks is an area of huge coral heads scattered all over this snorkeling spot - making it look like a Mexican sombrero, as some say the name comes from. These enormous coral formations contain large brains corals, gorgonians, sea fans and sea whips which provide shelter for an abundance of critters. Common creatures like angelfish, butterfly fish, groupers, snappers, file fish, grunts can be seen swimming along these formations as well as a casual loggerhead turtle.


South of Mexico Rocks closer to town is Tres Cocos, a small concentration of marine life along the reef where a large amount of fish can be seen. You can encounter a large population of Elk Horn corals, Lettuce Coral, Brain Coral, Sergeant Majors, Angel Fish, Damselfish, Fairy Basslet, Hawks-bill Turtles and occasional Green Turtles just to name a few. This area is an entrance for large reef fish that usually lurk around these areas in search for food.


This is an exclusive stop that only we make - we have the advantage of only drafting 2 feet which makes it possible to anchor in such shallow water, and we are also blessed with a Captain that know the spots where nobody else goes. This is a shallow area just by the reef and except from spectacular views it is also a unique setting and a refreshing break. The water is only 4-5 feet deep.

We specialize on custom-made Private Charters! You will have the catamaran only for you and all the attention on you. Making the tour private opens up to a lot more possibilities. We can do a plain Mexico Rocks Day Sail or we can also change the itinerary and/or add on more activities! If you add on more hours, we can do more snorkeling, explore the Northern shore or also add fishing (groups of maximum 6 people).
