Henry Salgero with his grandmothers sister at Boca del Rio in San Pedro, with the Andrea water ferry in the background, about 1994

The Andrea boat that use to take people to the city. Later named Yara Andrea. Don Tabo was the captain, he would always let kids drive.

Yara Alamilla: These were one of the first boats that used to run to Belize City on a daily. I'm not sure from whom my dad purchased the boats from but it started off with the boat at the back and then later moved on to bigger boats and adding the "Yara" to the already existing name" Andrea" and was eventually known as "Yara Andrea". He use to work Monday through Saturday they would leave San Pedro at 7am from the Texaco dock( gas station by Amigos del mar) pass by Caye caulker and then city and would park behind the Court House and for a while by the Bellevue Hotel he would come back at 3pm from Belize to San Pedro. Eventually bigger companies with more runs came into the pic and it didn't make sense for my dad to keep running the boats any more.

Ilda Gonzalez Cabrera: The first owner was Manuel Espat and the name Andrea was the granddaughter of Don Manuel Espat

Jorge Evan Alamilla: My father was at the foot of the cannon with the gift and work with Mario and business grew with great success thanks aloa pioneroso and people with vision.

Tribal Requena: Best Water Taxi Ever. Drove that Boat once thanks to Don Tabo.

Alexander J Morris: Andrea water ferry. Correction: That was one of the 2 Andrea water ferrys that had outboard engines then were later converted to inboards.
