Waypoints from Livingston to Placencia PDF Print
March 4, 2017
Editor's Note: As many cruisers are leaving the rio for Belize now, it seems a good time to submit this invaluable information, provided by John and Sheila on SV Triumphant. The data is a couple of years old, and not definitive, so there is a caveat that you should use the information at your own discretion and risk. If anyone knows of changes or has recent updates, please let us know. MANY THANKS, SV TRIUMPHANT!

Placencia Lagoon  Peninsula Club Belize Marina Waypoint up to 10 foot draft (2015)

This marina is much nearer the village than the Moorings and Roberts Grove Web site http://www.peninsulaclubbelize.com/

 

These were done by John and Lucy on StoneAge who draw 9 feet and have their boat in the Marina, they are also the dock masters and run a cruisers net on Chanel 69 at 08:30am

The entire track is for up to 10 foot draft. If a vessel draws less than 7 foot, they can go straight from WP4 to WP11. From WP15 to Marina Entrance is a trudge if deeper than 7 foot.

 

Entrance to Marina is : 16° 30′.142N 88° 22′.676W

Belize Hideaway Caye in the Pelicans Caye range waypoints

(Bar and Restaurant closed June to October)

 

May 2014 

Anchor depths inside the Pelican Cayes are around 60 feet but there are now 3 free mooring balls in place at Hideaway Caye who monitor VHF Channel 74 if you want to make a reservation

Western edge of shoal - safe water

Eastern Waypoint, Inside the lagoon between Northwest Caye and Cat Caye

16 40 850 N 

88 11 741W 

 

The bearings are 90/270 degrees True

 

Once inside, turn to Port and Hideaway Caye is on your right The least depth we saw was just over 9 feet at near low water.

 

Ranguana Pass Gap in the reef from E to W

I got these off the NW Caribbean net but have not used them myself. My comment is that there is a lot of waypoints for a short distance. I think these waypoints where taken off their track.
