What to expect on the boat transport ride..

Your Belize adventure begins the moment you leave the Ramada Princess Marina! Transportation to Long Caye departs at 2:00 pm on the day of your reservation.

As you pass through the beautiful Caribbean waters, keep your camera handy. We travel through the mangrove paths of the Turneffe Atoll. We might pass traditional Belizean fishing boats, cruise ships, sugar cane barges. We often encounter flying fish, pods of dolphins or whales.

Itza Resort is located 70 km or 44 miles offshore from Belize City. Please remember that Long Caye is about a 1 1/2 to 2-hour boat ride. Your luggage may not be accessible during the transfer, so we suggest you pack a small bag with reef-friendly sunscreen, polarized sunglasses, a secure hat, camera, wind-water breaker or anything else you think you might like to have available during the journey out to Itza Resort and Lighthouse Reef Atoll.

On the day of your departure, your boat back to Belize City leaves at 8:00 am, which allows time for you to catch your afternoon flight.

IMPORTANT: Our transportation to Long Caye is scheduled on Wednesdays and Saturdays only. Now on Sundays to accommodate for later flights on Saturday.

Delayed flights: Late arrivals or departure

If your travel plans to Belize are delayed for any reason for any conditions out of our control such as weather, delayed flights, buses, or lost luggage, and it causes a variation from our scheduled itinerary, it may add to your travel costs at your expense.

You are responsible for the cost of any special transfers that are incurred due to delays of any reason. If you are so delayed that you do not catch the scheduled boat, you may have to charter a boat to bring yourself to Long Caye, and/or stay overnight in Belize City. The price for a boat charter begins at US $850.00 plus tax.

You would have to pay for the boat charter in cash. ATM machines are available around Belize City, including the Lobby of the Ramada Princes Hotel and Casino.

We highly recommend all our guests get trip insurance to help cover your costs in case an event such as this occurs.
