“The Most Authentic Way to Snorkel the Belize Barrier Reef!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

WOW! We visited Caye Caulker the last week of May 2013 and were privileged enough to embark on a snorkeling tour with Ragamuffin Tours. Our crew was incredible! There was not a species of fish they couldn't identify (great for a nature nerd like me!), and they truly went out of their way to ensure that we had the time of our lives! The food (a delicious seafood dish over rice) was outstanding, the rum punch perfect, the shrimp ceviche divine, and the ambient reggae music contributed so much to the scene as we sailed over the turquoise Caribbean waters.
I would ABSOLUTELY recommend them as your choice for snorkeling/sailing while visiting Caye Caulker.

“Great Trip - "Woooooowwwwww"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013

Hello, we recently went on this trip and it was our second time! Loved it just as much as the first time. Jerry, Ish and Dylan were amazing and a great crew to sail with. The food was amazing and the reefs incredible. Highlight of the trip was swimming with the dolphins on the last day of the trip. The crew and the other people on the trip really made this one to remember, trip of a lifetime.

“Excellent 3-day trip on the Ragga Empress”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013

My wife and I love to sail and snorkel, so we were looking forward to this trip. We were very lucky to join the Ragga Empress 38' catamaran on her maiden voyage. With 12 other guests and 3 crew members, there was plenty of room. This is the Lexus of the Ragga fleet and not shabby at all. Capts Kevin, Shane, and Dice went out of their way to provide excellent service, food, environmental education, and the occasional fresh lobster and barracuda. The snorkeling sites were phenomenal, in part because we had them all to ourselves. This by far was the highlight not only of the our Belize trip but probably our year. If you go, keep in mind that you will be camping with no A/C and limited fresh water for showering. But the food, service, sites, rum punch, and overall experience make this a truly wonderful and unique experience for the adventurous.

“Boat is in bad shape”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

I really liked the tour. The captain and his assistant were very nice and friendly. They served lunch, and the food was excellent. Hol Chan is a crowded site. Ragamuffin had 3 boats there at once, so it was hard to swim without hitting someone with a flipper or being hit by someone else.

And Ragamuffin Tours has its name for a reason. The boats are in bad shape. The paint was peeling off of every surface, so you got white paint stuck to your skin, falling into your food, dropping into your drink, etc. The hook & eye that held the bathroom door closed fell out of the wood, so the door had to be held closed by someone outside. I don’t know what other companies offer. This could very well be the standard on the island. Again, I liked the tour overall. The crew makes up for the shortcomings.

Note for the not-too-strong: You will need to re-board the boat 3 times on the full-day tour. This is done using a portable ladder that they attach to the side. There is not diving platform level with the water that some large boats have. The ladder has sort of a backward tilt, and it takes some strength to hoist yourself up. Also, the last tour is follow-the-leader style (not free floating.). You will be swimming quite a ways. I’m old and out of shape, so most people can handle these tasks. But it is something to consider.

“If you dont know were you are? Your still in Belize!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

Amazing trip. We went on the 3 day 2 night trip on the 16th july. The crew Captain Ramsey, Chilo and Shane were great. The food was lovely and the snorkelling the best Ive done. The rays off Tabaco Caye were wonderfull. The group we sailed with were great and made the trip. The first Island is really under sold. Its yours for the night and you dont want to leave! Lovely views and snorkelling. The Ragga Queen was a good boat and enough space for the 17 of us. Would really recommend this trip, just dont drink to much rum punch on the first night!!!
