Ferries to Belize City

Enjoy a different view of the Belize coast when you travel by ferry

While you will not be able to reach every area of Belize via ferry, it is a great method for anyone looking to explore the many cays and small towns that line the coast.

Riding the Ferries

Although there are several different companies that provide water transport between Belize City and the cays, in general you'll find the boats to have a capacity of 40 passengers and run about once every hour between Belize City, San Pedro on Ambergris Caye, and Caye Caulker. Stops at Cay Chapel are also available upon request.

While there is some variety, it generally costs between $7.50 and $10(USD) per person to ride one way on a ferry, depending upon your destination and you can purchase tickets from the Belize City Marine Terminal by the Swing Bridge. Passengers may bring up to two pieces of luggage aboard, and some ferries will let you bring a bicycle for a small fee if there is room.
