For those passengers preferring a route more commonly adopted by locals, there is a regular water taxi service providing transportation to and from the island. Taxi service is available from the main Belize City airport (Philip S. W. Goldson International Airport). The speedboats used are capable of carrying around 50 people. The watercraft typically sport two or three large motors and make the journey in about 45–50 minutes. Once on the island, the main mode of transport is simply walking. The paths are well defined, and crossing the island takes 20 minutes at most. Bicycles and golf carts are also common and can be rented.

The Island is also used as a popular launch off for scuba diving the Great Blue Hole, with several expeditions per week. Gallery Image:CayeCaulker2004.JPG Main Street.
