Nothing but amazing things to say about this entire experience!! Three friends and I did the chill cruise. Everything from the booking process to the actual tour was great. The first stop was Hol Chan and they split the boat into smaller groups for a more intimate feel and so it's easier to stay with your guide through the snorkeling experience. All of the staff was incredible and made us feel safe and were also a blast to just hangout and talk to! Shark Ray Alley was a great experience too, could be a little scary but they make sure you keep your distance from the fish/sharks as they are grouped by the boat. After the snorkeling portion we had a delicious quick lunch and headed to the chill spot which was one of my favorites! They put up a volleyball net and gave us some footballs to just hangout and play! We made new friends with other guests and the staff. Overall, it was an amazing experience and I would do it again for sure!

The hotel we booked through failed to tell Island Dream Tours that I wanted a non-seafood meal. With half an hour to go before sailing, Island Dream Tours told me to go get something to go from the adjoining restaurant, and they paid for it. The trip itself was 3 hours with open bar, good food, and great music. We got great photos of the sunset, and the staff took photos of us on the boat in front of the sunset. Once the sun set, we had a spectacular view of the stars. Then it was time to dance or just sit and enjoy the scenery. It was the highlight of the two week trip, and the staff were fantastic. Note that they make you leave your shoes at the dock. If this is an issue for you, discuss it with them in advance.

My wife and I partied on the YOLO for a sunset booze cruise along with two other couples (all in our twenties). It was a very relaxing all-you-can drink boat ride before the sun went down, but after sunset it was a hell of a party. Lots of other people were up on the dance floor, some our age and some older. The bartenders weren’t afraid to pour strong, and the DJ’s music selection was awesome. I highly recommend it for anyone looking to party in Belize!

So I've been on many different boat tours in different areas and while this is my first one in Belize, this is hands down the BEST boat tour I've ever been on! We were on the boat celebrating a friends 30th birthday and we weren't sure of what to make of it at first. The ages ranged from 7-70 but they had a full bar on board so we weren't sure to expect a party atmoshere or something chill. When I tell you everyone was dancing on that boat by the end of the trip, I am not exaggerating! We all became friends by the end of things along with the crew! Everyone was so nice, the snorkeling experience was fun and informative, and the food they provided us with was delicious! The chill spot to get out and swim was loads of fun, they provided us with animal inner tubes, water volley ball and while they weren't able to play loud music (when you turn off the boat the speakers get quiter) a new friend brought her personal speaker out for us all to enjoy. This experience was 10/10, 5 starts, literally THE BEST boat tour I have ever been on! Can't wait to book with them again!

We traveled to San Pedro for my birthday and a friend of mine saw the reviews and thought it would be fun to do!! It definitely was. We did “The Chill Spot” day cruise. From start to finish we truly enjoyed ourselves and it was definitely worth the amount of money spent. The food was delicious, the views were great and the drinks were even better. Siete was our snorkeling guide and he made it fun. We were able to se so much. Every fish we inquired about, he was able to give us information on. Shark Ray Alley was a lot of fun and somewhat scary at the same time lol. Our ride bck was shot filled and a whole of of dancing. They made the day even more special by announcing that it was my birthday and everyone took shots to the celebration.. Capt Danny even let me drive the boat!! Lol The team did an awesome job at taking care of us and making sure we had everything we needed. We can’t wait to get bck!

The Island Dream Tours Team is the absolute best in the Tour Guide Industry. Always with unsurpassed service and attention they go above and beyond anything we could have asked for. The Tour Guide team coupled with a knowledgeable Captain and a perfectly suited boat makes for a day on the Sea that cannot be duplicated. The onboard facility & bar along with the ability to walk around unencumbered makes the YOLO a perfect combination for any adventure. We have sailed with Island Dream Tours many time and the Chill Cruise is still one of our favorites. However, if you have a chance don't forget the Sunset Cruise as well. You will not be disappointed :)

This was our 2nd experience with YOLO and we’ve loved them both. In 2021 we did a snorkel and chill day with friends, including 4 teens. We had wanted the Caye Caulker excursion but it was full, but this turned out to be such a great experience for our group. They had fun music, incredible crew that is interactive with guests, attentive and speaks highly of their jobs (which says a lot!).
Last week we were back in San Pedro with family, all adults this time, and knew to book the Caye Caulker day in advance. It was another great day and everyone in our group of 6 raved about it all week! We had a blast and would all highly recommend to anyone coming to San Pedro!
The value is incredible - the crew always made sure drinks were full and delicious!
Breakfast was ham and cheese on a French toast like bread. Then fresh pineapple, watermelon and papaya after snorkeling. Lunch was chicken legs, ribs, rice and coleslaw. Snack was chips and ceviche. Was it a 5star restaurant on board a small boat without a kitchen? No, of course not! But it was definitely tasty and adequate for a day on a boat! We came for the snorkeling, sharks, Caye Caulker, drinks and fun and YOLO more than delivered!

My wife and I have taken the chill cruise and karaoke cruise.
They give you a lot of time to swim and play volleyball all while serving great drinks!
The karaoke cruise makes it's turn at the South side of the island right before sunset. What a view!!
You sing and have fun all the way there and back.
The FOOD!
Wow! Since it's part of the trip I wasn't expecting much, but WOW!
DELICIOUS

Took the full day chill cruise on January 25th. The boat was fantastic and well cared for and very clean. Our crew was very friendly and could not do enough to make sure everyone had a great time. We snorkeled on the reef, swam with sharks and rays and topped it off with some chill time on a soft white sandbar in waist deep water! The included food was tasty and the drinks never stopped flowing.

We spent a total of 11 days in Belize and I have to say this day was by far our favorite day.
And to top it off, the crew took many photos and videos of everyone on board throughout the day so even if you didn't remember your camera, no worries! After we returned home ,we received an email link for Dropbox and had access to all the photos and videos....AT NO CHARGE!

Island Dream Tours is definitely doing it right

YOLO consistently knocks it out of the park! This was my third time on board, and we chartered the whole boat for our group of 20. They delivered an experience of a lifetime, our group of friends still talks about this day as the highlight of the trip. The boat is great for chilling and partying (very stable, easy to walk around on board), but the crew is what makes it special. If you're considering a snorkel trip, or just a sunset cruise, this outfit needs to be at the top of your list.
