Water taxi Belize City to Ambergris Caye
3. Re: Fly or Water Taxi from Belize City to Ambergris Caye?
There are a couple companies who run people to and from the cayes by boat in and around Belize City, all of which operate out of the same water port in the heart of Belie City. The boats are large, probably 15 - 20 meters in length, and seat at least 30 people with their luggage, so you can expect a stable, smooth ride.
My wife and I rode to and from Caye Caulker twice, the last time was mid february last year when the trade winds shift and come in from the east south east, if I recall correctly. When the winds come in from that direction there is a noticeable difference in the size of the waves, more a chop really, and can make the boat ride to and from the Cayes a little rough but it's certainly no different that sitting through turbulance in a Caravan (model of plane that operates in Belize).
I do not think you need not worry about the ride in a water taxi to AC. What you may want to consider and balance is the differnece in price and time it will take, and the different experiences of each mode of transporation to determine which is for you.
