We specialize in personalized tours. Nothing is prepackaged. You decide what you want to do and we’ll work with you. We know the island. We know what is available and when – which is often weather dependent. Once here, we will be happy to arrange scuba diving and/or snorkeling trips, Mayan ruin excursions, mainland cave tubing expeditions and fishing tours – in the deep, on the Barrier Reef and fly fishing on the flats. We also know private chefs, where to book a sunset sail or how to hire a catamaran trip to Caye Caulker.
