The Lady Lowe ferry service between Corozal Town and San Pedro began in June 2001. Currently it runs Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday but may be expanded to daily in the high tourist season, if demand warrants. Departure from Corozal is at 6 a.m. sharp, from the Corozal Bay Inn/Tony’s pier, arriving at the Texaco dock on the back side of Ambergris Caye. The Lady Lowe, owned by an American who lives in Copper Bank, returns from San Pedro at 4 p.m. Fare is US$32.50 round trip, or US$17.50 one-way. The open boat, with two 200-horse outboard motors, makes the trip in about one and a half hours. Hotels in Corozal and San Pedro sell tickets, or you can purchase them at the departure piers. Word is that another ferry service may soon begin operation between Corozal and San Pedro.
