Going from Belize City to Ambergris by water taxi takes 1 h 15 min to 1 h 45 min and can be very nauseating if the weather is rough. We took Mayan Air which flies out of Belize City to various locations in Belize like Ambergris, Caulker Caye, Dangrigia, and Placencia. If you want to save time and don't want to find out if you get sea sick easily, take the plane. Mayan Air uses Cessna C208 Caravan 10-seaters and it takes only 15 minutes to get from Belize City to Ambergris. Expect to pay 80 USD/ 160 BZ for a round trip. If you are heading to Belize Int'l Airport upon return, planes also land there, instead of at the private runway outside of the Int'l airport. Inquire about that when you book your tickets.

Note: WATCH YOUR BAGGAGE GET ON THE PLANE. Our bags arrived on three separate planes after we landed, so we had to wait about 45 mins after our plane landed to get all our bags. This wasn't such a problem because we were in no rush to get to the hotel. But if it's busy and people have lots of luggage and you've got a flight to catch at the International Airport, I'd be pushy about getting your bags on the plane you'll be sitting on. But if you like playing Russian Roulette....

Also - another competitor airline is Tropic Air. You'll see Tropic Air kiosks wherever there is a Mayan Air kiosk. I imagine they offer very similar schedules/rates.
