South Water Caye is a 15-acre semi-private island that is situated in the Southern Cayes of Belize. It is located 14 miles east-southeast of Dangriga, Stann Creek, its nearest mainland base. Stann Creek is located 120 miles south from the Belize International Airport (BZE).
The most convenient access is by taking a local flight from the Belize International Airport to Dangriga (20 minutes) and then by resort boat from Dangriga to the island (40 minutes). The Resort boat schedule departs once daily from Dangriga at 3:00 PM and returns once daily from Blue Marlin at 9:00 AM. Special boat charters can be arranged at an additional cost.
The local flight is not included in your package but we can easily handle the reservation and ticketing and add the charges to your hotel invoice.
Travel Tip: We recommend you book your international flight to arrive in Belize by 2:00 PM and depart from Belize no earlier than 12:00 PM. If an overnight becomes necessary for either way we recommend The Bonefish Hotel in Dangriga and we can make the necessary arrangements.
Upon arrival in Dangriga a Blue Marlin staff member will be waiting to provide your onward shuttle transfer to our private boat dock, or to our mainland base, The Bonefish Hotel, if a short layover is necessary.
If you have booked a hotel on the mainland before your stay at Blue Marlin (for example, San Ignacio/Cayo, Belmopan, Punta Gorda/Toledo), you can book a land transfer to Dangriga with your hotel. If you are heading to a mainland hotel after your stay we can organize onward land transfer from Dangriga. Just let us know your hotel schedule and we will recommend the best connections.
Travel Tip: If you are planning an inland and island Belize itinerary, we do recommend you book Blue Marlin Resort after your inland stay to ensure a relaxing end to your tropical vacation.
