Tropic Ferry

Hi - can anyone comment on Tropic Ferry? Since a couple of people in our group are not fond of the charter flights and the rest of us don't want to take hours to get to the island we were thinking of using Tropic Ferry. Our hotel has not heard much about them? Also - does anyone know how the ride on the taxis are - one in the group recently had back surgery and is afraid if may be too rough?

Thank you

We used Tropic Ferry in April. We were pleased. They took us to our resort and were informative on the way there. It was a bit rough because of the wind but not uncomfortable. They provided us with Belikin. The ride from the airport was in a nice vehicle and short. They picked us up at our dock in a larger boat on our return trip and even pointed out manatees on the way back. It was very pleasant. We will definitely use them again.

No contact other than email. They were great. On time, friendly and good rum punch! If you have the time to cross via the ferry... it is painless, and at sunset, amazing.... both runs we were on, had at most 8 people.....

When we used them back in December - we were very pleased. All my mails were answered promptly, on the way over there were only me and my husband plus 1 man and his dog! On the return just us and one other couple. When we got back early in advance of picking up our hire car they offered to take us on a tour free of charge too. We will definately use them again - forget the airport and have an adventure!

We used them in March and had a great experience. They answered all our e-mails and phone calls. They werevery informative about AC and Belize in general. They took us to a local store before the trip to AC so we could by some stuff cheaper. Great boat ride over to AC and back to the airport. There was only 6 of us on the ride to AC and 4 on the ride back. Why ride a plane when the trip by boat is more beautiful. We will definetly use them again!!

I just used Tropic Ferry in early June. The service they provided was great. When we arrived, they were waiting at the airport, took us straight to the dock where the boat was, provided us with waters and rum punch! The guys on the boat were very informative about San Pedro, things to do, places to eat... They responded to every email I sent them and when they couldn't reach me, they made sure to leave a message with the resort. They even picked us up early on the day we were leaving after we'd given them less than an hours notice. If you enjoy being on the water I would highly recommend Tropic Ferry.

We are leaving in 10 days and I have to say. I can't wait to ride the Tropic Ferry. I emailed them and with-in 24 hours or less had a response. Patrick has been wonderful to work with. So if the boat ride is as great and friendly as they have been to all of my questions. This is going to be a great way to start our vacation.

We have been home now for about two weeks from Belize. And I highly recommend Tropic Ferry. If you want to start your vacation out right this is the way to go. Yes is was a little cloudy the day we arrived but that did not bother us one bit. A great bunch of guys. Can't wait to see them again. If you do use them and they have Ranger Boat hats on....Well just tell them Mike and Sharon said HI....They love there hats.

The guys at Tropic Ferry are the most professional and courteous people I have ever met. Patrick answered every email within a few moments (and I did send quite a few emails). Our small group arrived at different times and choosing Tropic Ferry over the ferries in Belize City and the small airplane "shuttles" was the best decision I made while planning our trip to Ambergris Caye. The guys picked me up at the airport, shuttled me over to the dock and sat and talked with me while I had lunch. (They are located next to the Oar House Bar & Grill Restaurant. I highly recommend them as well.) They took me back to the airport to meet up with the rest of the members of my group and even escorted me to one of the cell phone providers to arrange a prepaid cell phone purchase. Greg, the First Mate, was an amazing tour guide and bar tender on the ride to Ambergris Caye. Excellent service!!! I will use them every time I visit Belize.

Just wanted to give a shout out regarding the great service a group I just traveled with received. All the arrangements had been made by one of my friends but everything was very seamless. From airport pick up, to stop at local store for beer purchase, to the Oar House were we waited for the boat to arrive. During to boat trip to Ambergris Caye it seems as if were on a tour being provided with history of the areas we were passing. Rum Punch - yum!

For our return trip again very professional. We traveled back through a very severe storm but Gregg and Adrian were quite capable and got us safely to our destination.

This company really goes above and beyond. Our group wanted to visit the local orphanage and take a donation and Armando and his staff made this a realistic and again seamless option.

I can't thank them enough for taking such good care of us.
