CAPTAIN JESSE & MATE/CHEF KARLA
Note that crew schedules are subject to change and we will confirm 30 days prior to arrival.
Jesse is from Spokane, Washington. Growing up he spent more time hiking and skiing mountains than sailing but as soon as he could he left the frosty island northwest to pursue his dreams of living and working on the sea. First as a dive instructor and later on as a Sailor. Jesse has been Captaining catamarans for 3 years in places like Hawaii, Guadeloupe and the Abacos and this is his second season here with us in Belize. In Jesse’s off time you will find him kitesurfing, riding his bike or look for a Mountain to fly off of.
Hailing from the spectacular colonial town of Merida in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsular, Karla crew up in a cultured world of travel and adventure. Prior to joining Belize Sailing Vacations, Karla was an English teacher and enjoys the interaction of people and the discovery of different cultures.

This is our second chartered trip on a catamaran and I don't think it will ever get old. We arrived around 4pm in Belize City and decided to stay at the Best Western Biltmore that night (had a great time there too). Shuttle to the marina the next morning by the crew was right on time with their very friendly driver (John, I believe) - fairly short ride as well. We were welcomed by The Captain & Chef (not just a cook!) Christie to "come aboard" the new (2018) and beautiful 47' Fountaine Pajot Saona "Tranquilo". The next week then becomes the perfect blur as we had so many good adventures - snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing, lobster catching, naps, sightings of rays, turtles, nurse sharks, naps, island exploring, a few island bars, did I mention naps, and a wonderful manatee (GoPro's are a great invention - I highly recommend having a waterproof camera of sorts). The captain knows the Cayes very well and was always getting us to some great spots based on what we were looking for. The chef was a pure joy and every single meal, snack, and beverage was terrific and unique. We chose the Northern itinerary which was perfect for this time of year. The crew was excellent in all of their communications prior and post trip, and their pre-trip worksheet really allows them to understand their clients expectations, food preferences, and activity interests. We highly recommend this yachtfor any of your sailing needs/adventures in Belize.
Just returned from a week of sailing on Tranquilo. There was not one thing that I would change about the entire trip. The food was amazing, the snorkeling was beautiful, the sailing was intoxicating and the experience of being on the water for a week was positively life changing. The crew were the icing on the cake. The captain was patient and a great teach and the chef is an amazing cook! I will be back for sure!
We chartered Tranquilo over Christmas and the New Year. There was John and myself, the oldies, and our daughter, son in law and their two boys who are 13 and 11. The crew were really wonderful and did everything possible to give us a memorable time. Having decided that we would prefer to sail towards the south of the country away from the busier cayes, that is just what we did. Some days having two or three different anchorages for snorkelling and then finishing up at yet another caye for the night. It was remarkably quiet, we saw very few other boats. The boat was super with plenty of room for us all to find a place on deck or wherever we wanted to be. The chef produced some scrumptious meals, especially when it was the fish that Jesse and the boys had caught! We shall hope to return.
