“Perfect day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Raggamuffin gives the best experience you can have in Caye Caulker, the information is clear, the food is delicious and the guides extremely professionals. The girls at the office they do the impossible to arrange your time and different taste that a big group has.
Even when some people on the boat are complaining about things that is nothing to do with the tour (i.e. there is no fish , or the waves are too big etc) the crew went far and beyond to try to please them in other ways.

Everybody should have a raggamuffin experience. For sure, I left a family there. Thanks guys.

“Brilliant day snorkelling, one of the best days of my trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

We went, as a group of 15, on the red boat with Jacob and Dane for a day snorkelling out on the reef. A totally fabulous day!! Edith in the office was brilliant, explaining exactly how much everything would cost, how long the day would be and what was included very accurately and clearly. Jacob and Dane were amazing - they explained everything clearly but in a really friendly and non-condescending manner, and provided lovely food, drink, music and humour. We saw some amazing marine life and I had one of the best days of our 22 day trip. Totally relaxing and exhilarating all in one!!

“Maybe It Was a Bad Day?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

My fiance and I used Ragamuffin Tours for a fishing trip when we visited Caye Caulker. I don't remember our tour guide's name, but things started out well enough - he picked up a buddy of his from a different spot on the island, and we went with them as they caught live bait for the trip.

Our guide was pretty affable, but the trip was, unfortunately, pretty disappointing. We had told the girl at the office that all we were interested in was drop fishing, yet we spent about an hour trolling, catching nothing. Also, the boat that we were on was incredibly small, was leaking rust from some places, and we were told to sit in the back of the boat - right near the stinky diesel engine. As we ventured farther and farther off the island, it became pretty clear that the boat we were on was maybe a little too small for the size of the waves our guide was taking us into. By the time we finally stopped the boat to begin drop fishing, I was feeling pretty seasick, and the waves were rocking our little boat so violently that we couldn't stand up, and soon, I was getting sick off the side of the boat.

When my fiance told our guide that we needed to head back to the island, he made some remark about a lot of people back on the island wanting fish from him. Um, excuse me? We're the ones paying for this trip. I understand he may not have meant offense by his comment, but I was pretty annoyed. At that point, I told him I wanted to go back right away.

Our guide took us back to the island a few hours early, and we ended up paying for the full trip. He was apologetic for the seasickness, and cleaned the few fish that we had managed to catch during our short trip. While the trip was pretty disappointing, I think maybe the situation would have been much different/better had we been on a larger boat, better equipped to handle the rough waters we were in.

The truth of this report is that on occasion, particularly in high season, our specific Raggamuffin crew do not undertake the fishing trips. We offer fishing tours that in slower times of the year, our professional and skilled fisherman that are our crew members in high season, get the benefit of doing their favorite thing in slow season, fish!!!! We have had a very busy year and towards the end of the year we have assisted passengers with information and setting up fishing tours with Guides that are not the same standard as some of our own - this will be reviewed for the next season to ensure 100% Raggamuffin approved guides and quality control for all tours!
We express sincere apologies to the writer of this report and want to extend to her or him that we will offer some compensation due to their feelings of money not well spent - we never want anyone to be left with a less than satisfactory taste in their mouth with Raggamuffin! If they wish to contact us directly, we can arrange for this!!

“Very fun and well organize snorkelling service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

It was a very good experience in snorkelling with Ragamuffin, even if the day was not sunny and warm as we wished to be.
Our boat skipper (I dont remember his name, it was Aug 30th and we were on the yellow boat) was fun and very professional
