It has been several years since we last visited Ambergris. Does the water taxi still operate? I see something about the Coastal Express - has that replaced what was always called the water taxi?

There are 3 water taxi services that operate between Belize City - Caye Caulker - Ambergris Caye...

1. Caye Caulker Water Taxi Association:

2. San Pedro – Belize Express Water Taxi:

3. San Pedro Water Jets Express:

The Coastal Express operates on the coast of Ambergris.

MisterB. Are these owned by the same folks? Also would you recommend over the other? Just curious, I've been on two of the three.

I think the owner(s) of at least one of those must be the manager of fish packing plant too; I mos def felt like a sardine...doesn't seem like they're inclined to pull a second boat up even when the first is uncomfortably full.

I am intereted in the water taxi that takes you along the Amergris coast. The Coastal Express looks much different from the water taxi of 6-7 years ago so just wondered if this is now the only option.

Unfortunately yes, it is the only option unless you hire a private boat.

How safe is your luggage on these? I had read that some things get stolen while stowed . Is this true? Are there some taxis that are more reputable?
