    Do you know if the Starla International Ferry from Dangriga and the D-Express Ferry from Placencia are still running on these days / times as at January 2019? I’ve checked both their facebooks and they haven’t been updated in over 12 months, the websites are out of action and the phone numbers don’t seem connected. Any ideas how you can book them if they are still running or if you just show up on the day?
    Many thanks

      I answered your post on TripADvisor.

      The agent in Belize City for “Starla” is Zippy Zappy Tours. The boat is still on their schedule.

      The “D-Expess” is still listed in the December 2018 issue of the tourist publication The Placencia Breeze.

    According to this link https://www.symmag.com/ferrybelize.com/ pointed to by this link http://aboututila.com/TravelInfo/Belize-Honduras-Ferry/index.htm, the Honduras to Belize ferry is not running any longer or at least it is paused until further notice (see link 1 here).
