Vitamin Sea: Sailing in Belize for Wellness and Yoga

Share

In the heart of “the other Caribbean” in Belize…you will find wellness and retreat at sea.
This past January, I had the opportunity to sail out of Belize City on the 46ft Fountaine Pajot catamaran TRANQUILITY. This beautiful and aptly-named yacht was our wellness and yoga retreat in Belize. While I may not have perfected my yoga headstand on this fam trip, I can confirm that it’s better to practice yoga on the forward deck of your private yacht than on a paddleboard! Not only did I rediscover the best sailing within this “2nd greatest barrier reef system”, I met the finely-tuned team of yacht crew, dock staff, office and Belize in-house concierge service.

Share

Papua, New Guinea is one of those exotic destinations that beckons to adventurous souls looking for the greatest diversity of marine life in the world for divers. For our Papua New Guinea yacht charter, we are featuring a luxury way to travel the “Coral Triangle” for a diving experience on a private yacht.  The 114ft New Zealand-built M/Y SPIRIT, designed by the award-winning Bakewell-White Yacht Design boutique studio, is not your typical dive liveaboard!

There is nothing lacking in the watertoy department with a brand New 40ft Intrepid, a 16ft dinghy, a wave-runner, a jetski, 2 paddleboards, a slide and a floating island.

In February, Charter Broker Sue Gearan escaped the polar vortex and attended the 2019 Miami Yacht Show at its new location. In between vetting boats, meeting captains and crews, and sampling goodies from top yacht chefs, she toured yachts with clients  by appointment. Here is Sue’s choice for the 2019 MYS’s most interesting charter yacht: M/Y BOXER

Last week, our intrepid veteran Charter Broker, Sue Gearan, headed south to report to our dear readers and clients on the best boats at the Miami Yacht Show (MYS). At the MYS’ new 2019 location, One Herald Plaza, between the Venetian and MacArthur causeways, Sue vetted beautiful and exciting charter yachts, met captains, crews and chefs (also beautiful and exciting), and took clients on board by appointment. Here’s some of what Sue wrote about a boat particularly worthy of note at the MYS.
