As of this Friday there will be a four times a day Island Ferry Service from Fido's Courtyard Dock to the Fido's Sandbar and back.

The one way cost for August will be $5.00 Bze and rising to $7.00 Bze from September.

That's great. I stayed down south on my first trip and my only regret was not being able to get to town without a golf cart or taxi (I'm only good for about a two mile walk). BB - do you know if there will be a round trip discount?

No round trip discount but the cost is half that of the land taxi and much faster.

There will be free Rumarita tokens available at both Fido's for the other.

The SandBar is 200 yards south of Victoria House.

The Ferry timetable will be available both in hard copy and on-line in both this weeks Ambergris Today and San Pedro Visitors Guide both in Advert and Editorial Format.

Can someone tell me where on earth does the Island Ferry pull up? I've tried to visit twice via the water and not only does the dock on the south end of the property look a little unstable to say the least, but it looks far too shallow to pull a boat up. The dock on the north end is a private dock with a gate. I'd love to come and check out the BBQ but need to know if I can get a boat in there. Also, what time is BBQ on Sundays?

JZB the ferry is currently stopping at the private dock on the North side.

It is only allowed to stop to allow passengers to alight and embark for up to 15 minutes so as to comply with the public access rights under Belizean law.

So there is nowhere to park then? Coming by cart is just not as much fun!

The traditional way is to put the boat on a stick. Carry a pushpole and shove it into the bottom, then tie the boat to it and wade ashore.
