Frequently Asked Questions
Happy Go Luckie Tours specializes in custom, private marine charters. If you book a charter with us it is your PRIVATE charter and it is our policy not to add anyone to a private charter on your behalf but you are more than welcome to invite others if you want to share the cost with someone you meet or are travelling with. Please just notify us if you do invite others so we can be sure to have the equipment and refreshments to accommodate them.
The travel time to the barrier reef is approximately 40 minutes one way.
Our charters are absolutely family friendly. Because of the flexible, customized nature of our trips it is ideal for families with small children and even babies as well as the elderly or people with physical disabilities. Please let us know if you have special needs when booking so we can provide the best experience possible. We have infant life jackets and you plan your tour with your guide so that you will get the most enjoyment out of your day and the plan can change at anytime if your needs change during the day. We have access to private islands and shallow swimming areas so its possible to use an island as a “base” while you do excursions from there and there is bathrooms and shaded areas available. Because you are not on a set tour with people you don’t know, you don’t have to worry about changing the plan as you go.
Absolutely! Our guides are trained to provide a thorough snorkel briefing and will start with a lesson near a shallow sand bar or island if needed. We have horse collar style life jackets which are great for people who are new to snorkelling or are not strong swimmers as they can be worn around the waist to keep you afloat while you able to put your face in the water. We have had people who never intended to snorkel on our boat due to fear of the water or a traumatic experience, get in and with careful guidance they learned to love their snorkel experience. We don’t pressure anyone to do something they don’t want to do but we do try to encourage people to try and with patience and care we help people to face their fears and exprience our amazing reef.

Amazing Trip to South Water Caye
We had an amazing time with Meds and Beru on our half day trip. They were very friendly and accommodating and took us to their favorite snorkeling spots along the reef and then we made a stop at South Water a Caye for some refreshments. They took their time to make sure we had the proper gear and explained safety procedures. Beru stayed on the boat and Meds was in the water to make sure everyone was ... more safe as he guided us on some amazing snorkeling along the southern barrier reef. The time went by so quick we wish we had booked a full day trip so we could catch some fish and eat on the beach. Nevertheless it was an amazing time and I recommend it to anyone visiting Hopkins or nearby.

great snorkeling trip!
We had a great trip with Luckie & Coro. They took the time to make sure our children were comfortable in the water and were very knowledgeable about the reef and the animals that live there. It was refreshing to see how much Luckie cares about the animals and protection of nature during our tour. He is out there to share the wonders, not to profit from them. It was outstanding.
