A new San Pedro based water-taxi company, Isla Norte Ferry will be offering two daily runs from San Pedro to Sarteneja or Corozal Town starting on Friday, November 4th. At one point, the Thunderbolt was the only Sarteneja/Corozal based boat water taxi, but Isla Norte Ferry will be introducing a new time schedule that differs from Thunderbolt, to provide more convenience to travelers.
For a price of $50 one way or $90 roundtrip, the ferry will depart from the San Pedro Water Taxi terminal at 7:45AM, reaching Sarteneja at 9AM, and then arrive at the Corozal Municipal Pier at 9:30AM. The ferry will also offer trips back to San Pedro from Corozal, departing the municipal pier at 3PM, stopping in Sarteneja at 3:30PM, and then arriving in San Pedro by 4:50PM.

Isla Norte Ferry to discontinue its water taxi service from San Pedro to Corozal
Isla Norte Ferry would like to extend its gratitude to the San Pedro, Sarteneja and Corozal commuters who gave us an opportunity and took a ride and traveled onboard our water taxi service over these past couple months.
We truly envisioned providing a new advantageous option for connecting these three destinations so there would be more convenience and doors opened to new adventures for travelers.
As with any venture, and especially a maritime commute like this one, operational costs to make the service available in a safe and comfortable manner are substantial, thus requiring a high volume customer base for solvency. Unfortunately at this time, it proved not feasible. Isla Norte is left with no choice but to phase out the service.
Hopefully at another time in the future, there will be growth and we may be able to see this service come in line once more. We very much enjoyed providing you with a good and friendly service.
Isla Norte's Private Charter services remain Available. We will be glad to take your group charters to any destination our beautiful blue waters allow.
