Getting to South Water Caye

South Water Caye is located atop the Belize Barrier Reef, approximately 14 miles southeast of the coastal town of Dangriga in southern Belize.

  • Our base of operations is our sister hotel (Pelican Beach Resort, Dangriga), which is located near the Dangriga airstrip. If you are entering Dangriga from there, we provide complimentary transportation from the Dangriga airstrip to the hotel and dock.
  • From the dock in Dangriga, it is a 35 - 45 min boat ride to South Water Caye. Boats are 25-30 ft. in length, depending upon the number of passengers. The trip is across the inner lagoon and past several islands including Coco Plum, Man O War Caye and Twin Cayes.
  • All boats are licensed by the Belize Coast Guard, operated by experienced and licensed captains, and carry lifejackets and other safety equipment.
