While tied up on one of the mooring balls in Pelican Cayes, we were fortunate enough to see dolphins and they even decided to swim with us.
About halfway through this trip we realized we were getting low on beer and other supplies so we crossed the channel to visit Dangriga, also known as Stann Creek. The creek being a major landmark and where we entered into the town.
Although the weather was not completely co-operative we were able to visit the remote Glover’s Atoll for a day and dove 2 notable sites. It is just over 30 nautical miles from Placencia, half of which is beyond the reef.
Virtually our first stop on this trip was at Hatchet Caye. It took us most of the day to sail here and we took the long route via Victoria Channel to avoid the shallower water directly between Hatchet Caye and Placencia.
We decided to start the new year off with a bang and head out at around 2am on January 1, 2015 for Placencia. We flew through the United Stated and arrived to a very empty Belize International Airport.
