Does anyone know what the licensing requirements in order to charter my boat for fishing and snorkel trips in San Pedro? It would just be with my one boat.

It's rarely rocket science, it's usually just math: then again if you can't do the math.......

No need to be brutal....but the reality can be a bitter pill. Unless you are Belizean or a citizen it is almost impossible. Best do a lot of investigation and fact checking with a reliable source before you head this way...boat in tow.

Not at all difficult, as long as you employ appropriate local staff to run it for you. Operating it yourself will be well-nigh impossible.
