I've visited Ambergris Caye several times but have never used the water taxi. How do I arrange for a water taxi in the evenings to go up-island from San Pedro(staying at Ramon's) or to Caye Caulker in the evening?

Your hotel can call a water taxi for you. Also once you take a water taxi just get the phone number to call, there are a few available. Remember water taxi's might not run if there is a storm.
Belize it!

Hey JaneinPA, I think you are referring to the water ferry and its schedule. We hire a water taxi to take us anywhere we want whenever we want to go. A water taxi can take you to a nice snorkel spot, up north, to a resaurant or bar, CC, etc. Just like a taxi only on water.

Margarita! Thank you for explaining the difference between the water shuttle and taxi. We always took the shuttle to town since we where staying at Captain Morgan's but did not know there is a water taxi you can call any time and they will take you anywhere. That is great to know. Do you know what the taxi rates are and do you have a phone number for one?

Don't know the rates, depends on where you go. More than the ferry though , since it is a personalized service. You can find phone numbers on in SP. Ask at your hotel, bar, restaurant, in the paper, etc.
The phone book lists:
SP Water Taxi Terminal beachfront 2036.
I've never used it though!
Belize it!
