I think you are speaking of Ramon Badillo (sp?). My first trip in 1992 we went in his glass bottom boat! It is his boat in one of the well known prints available.
I believe he passed away last fall. He was very elderly. Can someone confirm this?

Unfortunately yes Mr Badillo did pass away - the end of last year. He was a wonderful storyteller! His son Geraldo tours the ElGato catamaran but the glass bottom boat was destroyed in the last hurricane.

And for anyone reading this, our sunset/moonlight trip on the El Gato with Geraldo and Justo in April was the highpoint of our trip. You truly realize how good life is as you watch the stars come out with a rum punch in hand and the sound of Belizean flutes in the background. Romantic to the nth degree. And Geraldo certainly has a bit of the elder Mr. Badillo in him as he can spin a tale with the best of them. For only $80 U.S. for two, I recommend this adventure for everyone with a little romance in their hearts.
