Hi!

Does anyone know if you are required to have a captains license to operate a dinghy in Belize?

If it is motorized I believe the answer is yes. Not sure though? Lengths and horse power may come into play.

You are correct "Freezer" The P A web site states "all power driven vessels" must have Captains License.

Section 12 of the Harbours and Merchant Shipping Act is amended by Act No. 11 of 2007, to include Section 3 which states:

•Vessels involved in coastal and river service
•Tug boats
•Barges
•Sailing vessels
•Jet ski
•Scientific research vessels
•Casino boats
•Party boats
•Private pleasure boats
•Dredges
•All vessels for hire
•All power driven vessels
The only exception is paddle dories or other similar craft


If you outlaw guns, only outlaws will have guns.

am interested in sitting for the boat masters license,

have an address
have a valid passport
have 2 passport pics

so I show up at PA in BC on a Monday or Tuesday between 10:00 and 11:00 and take the test. anyone got the pamphlet on what they are testing for that could be scanned and emailed to me. I'll pay for the trouble.

when complete I arrange for PA examiner to fly over to AC to watch me drive around.

what else?

The examiner coming over part is questionable i heard from the president of the San Pedro tour guides assoc. that wasn't happening anymore. You might have to go to Belize city.

Sorry that wasn't nice. I feel like even though they say that arent coming they will. It seems the way it goes around here , never consistent.
