We loved having our own private charter for the day and we felt so spoiled and pampered. We had wonderful sun going out sitting and lounging on the comfortable mats on the catamaran. Snorkeled a bit and then came back to eat homemade ceviche-with conch that Captain Steve got 10 minutes previously in the ocean. We fished-David got a nurse shark and a sting ray which both broke his line, the young lady on the boat caught at least 10 grunts which Captain Steve filed right there and then for the lunch of steamed veggies and fish with all kind of wonderful spices. We had a bit of rain which we put a cover up and didn’t get very wet and then went snorkeling a short spot away at Mexico Rocks where we chummed up lots of nurse sharks and sting rays and got to see a great turtle and 4 ft very green eel. A wonderful day and pleasant trip back to our hotel. All drinks were also great-we did not try the rum punch, but had lots of Biliken Beer and Soda. Would absolutely go with these folks again!!



Unity Tours was recommended by our resort, The Phoenix, so we chartered the No Rush for a day of fishing, snorkeling and fun. Captain Steve and his deck hand Fish were right on time picking us up at the Wet Willy’s dock. After a minute to get situated, we were on our way.

The No Rush is a comfortable, no frills catamaran with plenty of seating. Steve proposed a loose itinerary of snorkeling around Mexico Rock (the last day before it became a licensed park), fishing, sailing and maybe a stop at one of the beach bars on the way home. He said we could play it by ear and do pretty much whatever we felt like. As we motored toward the end of the island (planning to sail back) Fish pointed out resorts and shared facts about the island along the way. We were encouraged to connect our own music to the boat’s wireless bluetooth stereo system – a huge plus.

Fish was great. He made Rum Punch and fixed my broken snorkel and basically took care of us. We were very grateful for his knowledge, kindness and good humor. He made sure I had plenty of shade and that my rum punch wasn’t too sweet. My kinda service.

One of the highlights was the fresh conch ceviche and the lesson on how to pull the meat out of the shell. While we were snorkeling, Steve gathered conch shells from the shallow bottom and made a huge bowl of ceviche with peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, hot sauce and chips. The perfect snack after a swim.

We did everything they promised – two snorkels (one with lots of friendly nurse sharks), fishing and a beer stop at the beachside Palapa Bar and Grill on Ambergris Caye.

We had so much fun that we tried to book another day to just fish but Steve already had another group booked. He kindly turned us over to his friends at Seakarus (also awesome) for an all day fishing trip and beach bbq. Fish went with us on that one too.

Our day on the No Rush was our most relaxing, fun day on the island. We’ve already booked our trip to Belize for next year and you can be sure we will book with Unity Tours again. Highly Recommended!! Thanks Fish and Joon!! You’re the best.



We chartered this catamaran for a smooth,comfortable snorkel and sail to ho chan and shark Ray alley. Steve and Fish had been out fishing in the morning and brought in fresh conch , stone crab. And a fish which they cleaned to feed the fish and feed us, fFsh made a fabulous ceviche with peppers and cucumbers and served with chips after our snorkel. Steve served up some yummy watermelon rum punch. A great time was enjoyed by all 10 of us. Ages 20-67. Thank you.
