Visit the Islands in Belize via Water Taxis
Imagine the excitement of boarding a water taxi bound for one of the many exotic islands of Belize. The engines power up and the vessel speeds off leaving a white foamy wake in its path. The skies above are immaculately blue, seeming to mirror the unbroken wave movements below. The captain announces the approaching destination, as you eagerly peer out into blue horizon to see the outline of palm trees and thatched cabanas.
The Belize Marine Terminal, located at the foot of the Swing Bridge in downtown Belize City is the most convenient location to catch a water taxi heading to the two popular island towns of Caye Caulker and San Pedro. Schedules to and from these islands are almost hourly and cost about US$15.00 round trip to Caye Caulker and US$27.50 round trip to San Pedro. Children between 5 and 10 years old pay half-price. Special charters to the atolls and other island tours can also be arranged upon request.
Visitors in Corozal, wanting to experience San Pedro can do so on the daily run provided by Thunderbolt Travels. This trip embarks from Corozal Town at 7:00 a.m. and leaves San Pedro en route to Corozal at 3:00 p.m. Visitors wishing to experience the southern islands and beautiful Glovers Reef Atoll can arrange charters from the Riverside Cafe in Dangriga Town or from Placencia Peninsula further south in the Stann Creek District.
