Frequent Questions

How long is the boat ride from Belize to San Pedro?

The trip is 1 hour and 30 mins long.

How do I get from Belize Airport to the Ferry Terminal?

Unfortunately there are no shared shuttles from the airport to Belize City. The only way of getting to the ferry terminal is by taking a taxi ride directly to Belize City for $30.00 USD.

How far is the Belize City Bus Terminal from the Water Taxi?

The Terminal is only five minutes away by taxi or it can be walked in about 15 minutes which is perfectly safe.

Do I have to pre-book ferry tickets?

Purchasing tickets online has an 11% processing fee. Pre-booking is not necessary and is cheaper if purchased on the same day at the ticketing booth.
