Geoff and Iza
We started cruising the Caribbean in 2004 on our first boat, Dream On, a sailing monohull, then upgraded to our Leopard 47 sailing catamaran, Dreaming On in 2008. We have now logged around 30,000 miles in the Caribbean, the East Coast of USA and 5 year operating luxury, all inclusive charters in the British Virgin Islands.
We are now in the wonderful new cruising grounds of Belize and look forward to sharing our love of the waters, cayes and reefs of Belize with you.
Separately or together we have lived and worked in the USA, India, Lebanon, Yemen Arab Republic, Seychelles, Kenya, South Africa, Saudi Arabia and Dubai.
Geoff has enjoyed a varied career in aviation, mostly in East Africa and Saudi Arabia, but also including two years as European catering manager for a major US charter airline.
Together, Geoff & Iza managed the creation of a new tourist seaplane service in Dubai during 2007.
Geoff was almost born on a boat as his parents were building one during his early years. By the age of 6 he could safely handle their motor cruiser. He learned to sail in the hectic waters of Portsmouth Harbour in the UK, home of the Royal Navy. Geoff holds a Belize Boatmasters Licence and is also a PADI Rescue Diver.
Iza loves exploring, whether underwater or seeking that magical secluded bay or deserted island. She is a PADI Rescue Diver.
Luckily for Geoff, if Iza's not underwater, out kayaking or beachcombing, she's enjoying her long-standing passion for what he calls, her culinary artistic creations.
Menus are influenced by the many cultures Iza has experienced and she will pamper you, matching the tastes and preferences of each individual guest.
She will often bake three times a day, fresh muffins in the morning, fresh loaves for lunch and a variety of dinner rolls. She uses locally available produce wherever possible to create delicious and healthy gourmet cuisine which looks as astounding as it tastes.
Geoff and Iza operated their catamaran Dreaming On for luxury crewed charters in the BVI for 5 years, then moved on to Belize for a change of scene. They fell in love with the islands of southern Belize, the phenomenal colours, the uncongested waters, and the chance to anchor at a different island every night and have the island to themselves.
So much so that they purchased and have been developing their own special piece of that paradise, Funk Caye, close to the main barrier reef. Funk Caye offers turquoise blue waters, fantastic snorkeling on the house reef all around the island, kayaking and paddle board opportunities. Nurse sharks regularly swim around under the dock, and manatees have been sighted. Spotted Eagle Rays are permanent residents.
They now invite you to join them on board Dreaming On and share their knowledge and love of this quiet, unspoiled area.
