In our strive to always be unique we have chosen Rachel Kinns photo for our new profile picture. The shot is a beautiful photo of our friendly Frigate birds that follow our boats in the hope of the sardines that we carry on our tours.
We just love the gorgeous color that the birds silhouette – it’s a very unusual and creative shot and we just love it!!!
I have to say that I am so proud of our customers who are some of the most amazing photographers. Yet again we have an absolutely beautiful underwater shot of Belize’s reef with no camera trickery just sheer beauty!!
We have to say a big shout out to Cathy Jenkins, who is the creator of this piece of art. She took the photo just off Southwater Caye – our last stop before we cruise into Placencia on our famous overnight tour.
Thank you Cathy … keep the photos coming in guys … we love them!!
There is once a while when a truly beautiful photo comes our way … and here it is (double click on the image to get a higher resolution!) Tim Nolan has taken one of the most original and beautiful shots of Rendezvous Caye that I have seen in a long time. We are so used to seeing her fringed with aqua marine ocean and the icy white sand but this camera shot shows quite beautifully the magic of the island at night.
We will, as usual, make this photo our Facebook profile page … it probably will not do the photo justice as you need to really see it larger but it very much is our shot for this month!
As ever, Caye Caulker brought in 2012 with a bang … fireworks at the split along with what seemed to be the whole island was a blast. And when the split closed everybody poured into both the Oceanside and Hypnotic – those who stayed in bed, fearing that it may rain really regretted it yesterday and those who came out nursed their hangover!!
New year and also new month brings along our ‘Photo of the Month’ … our new profile photo will be our own ‘springy feet Shane Anderson’ doing what he does best – back flips!! The photo was taken by Dawnette Overbo and we love it!!
For us at Raggamuffin, October was a month filled with love as we all holidayed an relaxed on our month off work! The icing on our cake this month was Edith (the un-sung hero of Raggamuffin) and Ali’s wedding. And for this we feel that photo of the month goes to our very own Edith for her wonderful collection of photos for her beautiful event!
Thank you Edith and Ali!!
There was a buzz at the split this week as a manatee came right up to the split to come ‘hang out’ with tourists.
Brandi Gross (along with her husband Landon) were basking in the midday sun at the split when tourists came rushing out onto the sea wall to watch the manatee slowly swim into the split. Brandi, who was in the water was quite sure she was going to miss out on the fun as she could not see what was happening on the other side of the wall. However, patience is a virtue and Brandi’s patience won over when the manatee came around the wall, right up into the shallow area of the split where she was swimming. Luckily she had her camera in her hand to document the event and therefore we are able to post some pictures as proof of the incident!
For this, to celebrate that manatees do indeed love Caye Caulker, we want to make Brandi’s above picture our Facebook photo of the month – thanks Brandi!!
A big congratulations to Mayra Arboleda, a Tour Leader from GAP Adventures, who took this photo of 5 manatees whilst she was snorkeling at Hol Chan Marine Reserve. For at least two weeks over the August period we were regularly snorkeling with 4/ 5 manatees at the Hol Chan and this is the only photo we have as proof!! Ellis once again becomes star for the month of August as it is his legs that we can see in the shot!!!
