Small-Ship Cruise Line Announces 2023 Solar Eclipse Cruise

Small cruise line UnCruise Adventures has announced a special cruise that will be perfectly positioned for viewing the annular eclipse on October 14, 2023.

The unique nine-day cruise will depart on October 13, 2023 and sail around Central America, offering passengers the opportunity to enjoy beautiful scenery and natural surroundings alongside fellow eclipse enthusiasts and experienced guides.

The 66-guest safari traveler will provide a view of the “ring of fire” eclipse off the coast of Belize, which will end with a celebratory toast with the crew. The small boat will then sail to Ranguana Caye, a private island, for snorkeling, paddleboarding and a private beach party. The next day, you can visit Las Escobas Rainforest and Tapon Creek Nature Reserve and learn about local Garifuna culture and history.

UnCruise Adventures has seen an increase in Belize travel bookings and already has high occupancy for its 2022 season in Belize.

“I can’t express how thrilled I am to finally offer our little cruise to Belize,” shares CEO Captain Dan Blanchard, who first visited Belize on a sailing charter in 2003 and has spent long periods researching the destination since 2012 with multiple research and development trips in 2019 and 2022.

“Our first season has shown that interest is high in Belize. It will provide a bonus with our exclusive Eclipse, Rivers & Reefs sailing in 2023,” he said. “What a special time to be on board. Some people go their whole lives without seeing an eclipse. We now have the ideal vantage point to observe the Caribbean surrounded by natural beauty on board. »
