#101268 - 04/20/05 06:12 PM Belize City to AC Ferry
Maresman1 Offline
Well after reading such great reports on this board, we (wife,daughter and I)are headed to AC on June 13 for 2 weeks. Really looking forward to the adventure.

We will be staying at Banyan Bay. My question is how do we get to AC via ferry or water taxi? Did not find any schedules. I would rather fly, but my daughter will not get on a small plane and says that the water taxi should add to the adventure laugh I know that bad weather can make the water trip messy, but flying with her on a small plane in bad weather is more risky wink

What would you suggest? Thanks for the help.

MM1

As an aside, small planes are actually much safer than the big ones. They also offer a very good ride, if the weather is not too bad, and a tremendous view. Also, one of you may just get the co-pilot seat! That would also add to the adventure.

Kris,

Thanks for your comments, I agree with you. However, I cannot convince my daughter of this. She insists on going by water taxi.

Caye Caulker water taxi departs from Belize city down by the swing bridge, leaves at 8am, 9am, 10:30am, 12noon, 1:30pm, 3pm, 4pm, and 5pm. 17.50 us per person one way, you will have to take a cab from International airport to Bze city, cab costs around 20.00 us. I hope this info is current, if not someone will post the correct scoop. Have fun. laugh

Papashine,

Thanks for the info. I will continue to try to talk my daughter into flying, but this option will help her feel better.

Thanks again, MM1

I flew to AC on the 14 passenger Tropic Air. First time in a small plane. It was a very nice flight since the weather was perfect. Like floating compared to a big jet. You can see so much more. Leaving Caye Caulker we flew back to Belize City in a tiny 3 seater. Again great weather and a smooth flight. The water Taxi can be a hot, crowded, long and bumpy ride but it can be fun I guess.

I have the same feelings about small planes as your daughter however now that I have made the flight to AC from the international airport it is one of my favorite things about visiting Belize. The flight only takes about 20 minutes and the view is absolutly beautiful. She will be enjoying looking out the window at the teal/transparent waters so much that she won't even know she's in the air.

Maresman 1,

Like your daughter, I am not a big fan of small planes but will be taking the tropic flight out of international on june 12 I see it as part of the adventure. Will be at seven seas until the 26th, let's hookup so I can hear your daughters thoughts on small plane or water taxi. This is my first visit and I cannot wait.

Clock,

This will be our first visit also. Maybe we can get together at BC's or somewhere else in town for a cold one. I am still working on her to see if she will try. She has never been on a prop before and she heard about the Tropic Air incident a few weeks ago.

See ya there, MM1
