On the beautiful aquamarine waters of San Pedro sails the 40 foot “Sirena Azul” (Blue Mermaid) sailboat. This sailboat is like no other, made at the hard working fishing village of Sarteneja, Belize. The Blue Tang Inn brings to its visitors a traditional style and quality craftsmanship sailboat that provides great sailing excursions such as Full Day Snorkel to Hol Chan Marine Reserve, Shark Ray Alley and Caye Caulker or 1/2 Day Snorkel to Hol Chan Marine Reserve and Shark Ray Alley or a gorgeous Sunset Sail.
Delsie and Gerry from the Ambergris Today were invited by the lovely staff of the Blue Tang Inn to experience the Sunset Sail, one of their most popular excursions on the Sirena Azul. Boarding the lovely sailboat we were greeted by the two captains who gave us a brief history of the marvelous boat as we cast off towards the day’s amazing sunset.
All we had to do is sit back, relax and enjoy the view; no hard work at all. The only ‘hard’ work was sipping on some delicious rum punch accompanied by chips and salsa while all the guests exchanged entertaining conversations with each other.
Surrounded by the gorgeous waters and the amazing view of the island, the memorable site of the electric sunset came along as we took pictures and enjoyed the moment. As the sun dozed down, came the end of a wonderful sail and as they say, another one for the book of memories to cherish.
