Caye Caulker is an excellent destination for a family and serves as a good base for adventures.
A water taxi to Belize City (mainland / Hub) takes 45 minutes. Once here, the day tours can be half-day or full day tours, depending on where you are going.
Usually a trip via the mainland starts at: 6:30 AM (first water taxi), pick up is between 7:30 - 8:00 AM and drop off is usually in time for the 3 or 4:30 PM water taxi back to the island.
Your family would be safe on any of these tours, if they decided to leave you behind on the caye. Treasured Travels
