Water Taxi ride
May 2021 • Family
Boat ride was fine but fairly long and crowded. Scenery on the way was just ok. Cost about $35 US to get a taxi from the airport to the water Taxi. Water taxi was US$28 each. They did let us buy round trip tickets and the ride back is half price.
The ride is a little long even at 38MPH. Boat was fairly smooth.
Watched a man poop under the bridge next to the water taxi place. Not Cool.

Don’t take no for an answer

Trying to travel Caye Caulker to San Pedro. Ticket agents TWICE told us the boat at the dock was NOT San Pedro bound. However, it was and it left without us. Don’t know who to trust, but don’t assume the staff surely know where a boat is headed. Cost us 3 hours!

Easy option from Belize City to Caye Caulker
Feb 2021
We took this water taxi from Belize City to Caye Caulker where we were going to stay a couple of nights. It goes to Caye Caulker first and then on to San Pedro/Ambergris Caye. They take your luggage and give you a luggage tag to claim it once you have arrived. We got our tickets online beforehand, but you still need to go to the window to pick up a physical ticket to board. There are two lines, one for Caye Caulker and the other for San Pedro. The ferry goes both places, to Caye Caulker first and then on to Ambergris Caye. But for some reason, they want you in two different lines (maybe to ensure that you paid the right fare?) The ferry to Caye Caulker is approx. 45 minutes and it's scheduled for an hour trip back (more into the wind, I guess.) The round trip fare was very reasonable, especially as compared to taking a flight out to the cayes. Everyone was wearing masks, and it wasn't overly crowded when we went. There were two different types of boats, and I preferred the one we had on the way over because it had windows that slid open so we could look out.

Easy transport but long between Belize City & San Pedro
Jan 2021 • Couples
You have a choice between water taxi and airplane to get to San Pedro. This is easy - they take your luggage off and on but it’s 90 minutes long especially since they stop at Caye Caulker. It can get full too which makes it uncomfortable.

great way to get to mainland from San Pedro for Mayan Tour
Nov 2020
This was included in our Lamanai River tour. I think the water taxi was efficient and ran nicely on time. Only thing that would have been better is if we could have flown to shorten the time of the trip. But the ferry was clean, we got our hands sanitized as we boarded, everyone was wearing masks. It felt safe and made our day a great experience.

Good service
Nov 2019
This is a fast-ish ferry from Belize City to Caye Caulker and San Pedro.

Luggage is transferred to and from the ferry for you - which is useful. On the boat which we travelled on seating is quite tight. You need to decide if you want a good view or if shade is more important for you. Good service: reasonably well-organised

If you're not in a rush and don't mind saving a chunk of change.over the plane transport...the water taxi is great! The system is down to a science in terms of efficiency. You buy your ticket at the terminal, drop your luggage & get a tag, and get on board! I was going to Ambergris Cay, the second stop on the route. Its a bit over an hour but a great way to see more of the island. The attendants are very helpful and have a very positive vibe. I suggest you buy a round trip ticket - saves time!

Refund policy due to corona virus pandemic
Mar 2020
Me and a friend had a whole trip from Mexico to Costa Rica planned.
But with the borders closing (including Belize's) due to the corona virus pandemic, we were forced to cancel our vacation.
With that, I got in touch with the customer service of Belize water taxi to ask for cancelling my ticket from Chetumal to Cayer and for a full refund, since we had no choice but to cancel everything (borders closing, flights canceled...). Still, they charged me a 25% fee for cancelling. I tried to explain twice it was not my choice and they just answered "Good Morning Mr Gabriel,
We have already completed your refund on our end.
Best regards".
It is sad to see that even in these times, people are greedy.
When the pandemic is over and we reschedule our trip, I will make sure to remember which services we can't trust or use.

Didn’t check their passengers - 9 hours with no food or water.
Mar 2020 • Friends
It’s the company who takes you across a border who has the responsibility to ensure all passengers on board will be safely delivered. This did not happen to us on the 14/03/2020. Instead, we spent 9 hours on board a boat with no food or water, waiting.

With the COVID-19 virus, I understand it’s a challenging time. But when a country blocks Italian nationals from entering and a boat company carry’s 2 of them to that country, causing an entire boat of people who should be able to get to the island, are denied entry, the company should take responsibility. Instead, we lost our accommodations, we weren’t allowed refunds on the boat tickets and quite frankly we arrived back into Mexico with dehydration and frustration.

This company took no responsibility for leaving us like this. The boss even insisted we stayed on the boat overnight in Belizian waters when all passengers wanted to return to Chetumal. News reports say we refused to leave waters, this was the decision of the manager of the company, not listening to the people on bird the boat. There was no responsibility taken, no refunds given and a total lack of customer service. In total we lost out on almost USD $500 *due to the lack of planning and consideration this company has.

*most travel insurance companies do not cover failed trips if you have departed from the first country and entered into international waters- which is what this company made us do.

Completely unreliable company. Should be ashamed of themselves.

We truly apologize for the situation that took place on Mar 14-2020. Please note that our company did everything in our capacity to ensure your safety. You must understand that our borders were open and there was no travel ban therefore our trip was on schedule. Our vessel had already departed and we were not informed on time due to a lack of communication from the border officials in Belize. The border officials in Belize insisted that we could not dock, Our manager worked tirelessly to try to get the boats docked properly in San Pedro but to no avail. We were later informed that certain individuals on the vessels created concerns due to place of origin and nationality due to the growing concern for COVID -19 cases. Please Note we even requested another vessel to take water and food, and this request was also denied. Please Note, We as a company DID NOT refuse to Return to the port of call, however the delay on the water was because we had to make special arrangements to ensure the re-entry was LEGAL in Mexico. This situation was completely out of our control and like you, we are not happy with the decision that the border officials made that led up to the unfortunate turn of events. In lieu of all this, All of our passengers are qualified for a full refund.
