Reviewed 16 August 2014

We were staying with a friend who lives in Belize. We spoke with a woman about a trip north to Mexico Rocks, as we had been on the south trip on a previous visit. Were assured there was a trip the next day. When we got on the boat it soon became apparent we were headed south. When my husband questioned the captain he became very irate and said the woman who booked the trip was his wife and could not have made a mistake. After further discussion, since we had planned and booked out our day for a snorkel trip, we told him fine, we would do the south trip. At this point he literally started screaming at us that we would not be happy and he refused to let us go on the trip! As people in our 60s, we were pretty much in shock at his behavior and treatment of us. He basically dumped us unceremoniously on the dock, where at least he did arrange for his wife to pick us up in a golf cart. She apologized that the cell phone connection was not good and apparently she did not hear that we were interested in only a northbound trip. We can understand the mistake but not her husband's poor treatment. Makes us wonder what if you are on a trip with him and he gets upset with you, will he just leave you stranded in a remote place? Anyway, it was a very disturbing experience, and one I hope they have corrected.

We booked our trip on the Lady Leslie through our resort, Pelican Reef Villas. The Lady Leslie staff picked us up at the dock at our resort and we departed on our day trip to Caye Caulker. We stopped at the Hol Chan Marine Reserve and Shark Ray Alley to snorkel along the way. The tour is run by a father and his two sons who took care of everything and were very knowledgeable about the area. Great company to go snorkeling with and would recommend for couples and families with young kids.

We took our wedding guest on the lady Leslie for a snorkel trip to Hoi chan and shark ray alley. Everyone had a great time. The catamaran was in superior condition and the owner and his family were very friendly and knowledgable. They made sure we all had a great time. The conch fritters were the best we had on the island! I tried to get them to give me the recipe but it's a secret!

I can not say enough about the crew, food, the beautiful spotless boat !! Amazing,!! On the snorkling tour they divided us up into three groups and spent plenty of time in the water explaining all the beautiful sea life and the natural protected nature of the reef!! Then off to shark alley!! What a blast!! We were a group of 11 and they waited on us hand and foot, the trip to Caye Caulker was relaxing I enjoyed my time either laying in the hammock or on one of the big bean bags!! Martin was a delight and he runs a fine sailing boat. Jody and Ricky were great and so very helpful with anything we needed. You must not miss the chance to sail with this family owned company. They take great pride in customer service and making sure you have a great time!! Very affordable!!
Caye Caulker at the Lazy Lizard is a must do when you go to shore. Honestly, I would have done this trip twice!! I have never been happier with a tour boat, not over crowed, lots of room to relax...can't wait to return to The Lady Leslie

The Lady Leslie experience will leave you wanting to go back again and again! I wouldn't even consider another day excursion with any other Catamaran company while visiting San Pedro! The Lady Leslie was exceptional in every way. Martin picked us up from our resort on time, the Lady Leslie was immaculate, Jody and Ricky were outstanding hosts and guides, they made snorkeling a wonderful experience and the food was the absolutely the best! If you are hesitating on which tour company to trust while visiting San Pedro, hesitate no more - contact the Lady Leslie - you will not regret it!
