Tendering in Belize
When you leave a ship in Belize (not sure where that is? Click here) you have to take a smaller ship called a “tender” to the port. Why? In this case it is because the second largest barrier reef in the world, which I believe is called The Not-soGreat-but-still-pretty-good Barrier Reef, is located off the coast of Belize. A Cruise ship would tear it up. Damn, look at the size of my head!
When you step back and think about it, the trip is a rather peaceful one. Not sure why some passengers make such a big deal and bitch and moan about it.
Well… it is a long trip. This photo is taken about halfway, so at about 3 miles. I remember one day being on a tender boat that broke down about this spot. Wasn’t a big deal, we just waited for another one to come along while the crew tried not to look panicked and scared.
