Best Birthday EVER


I often get asked for recommends on different things. This time it was Cathy who came to me wanting a Tropic Air tacogirl special and some boat options for her birthday. I sent her Eric’s contact info for Uprising tours, he is a great guy and best of all he has music option on his boat. She opted for day-long fishing trip/beach BBQ and sent me the following review and pictures after she and Jeffrey got back from  their Caye Caulker vacation.

Hi, It’s Cathy from Arizona

First of all let me thank you so much for your suggestion of Eric for our boat captain.  I had the best birthday EVER!.  We have never been able to afford to do something like that before due to the expense (it averages $700 in Turks and Caicos for example). And hotels, condos, excursions are soooo spendy.

The first thing that made me feel good was that Eric was in contact with us by e-mail just days before.  He said he would be waiting for us at the water taxi dock and there he was with the Uprising (second thing that made me feel good as one never knows).   It was so relaxing.  My husband and I caught lots of fish, about 14 in all, I actually caught a reef marlin which was really unusual looking.  And he was right, he really does make an awesome ceviche.  The first mate got 6 lobsters and then it was on to the beach to cook our lunch.

I took a bottle of champagne which we all shared but of course there was rum punch and lots of nice music.

I did a fishing trip back in 2008 with Captain Jeff, and what a great memory it is.

    YUM! That all looks delicious. Where was the beach BBQ? We’ve done several of them (some North, some south and we’ve been to Goff Caye 2ce) with Suya tours and have never been disappointed.

    I really wish I was there for some fresh Lobster!

    Happy Belated Birthday Cathy! So glad you enjoyed your special day!
