Hi All,

I've heard about rafts/tubes at Half Moon Caye beach. Can you rent them? Cost? Also, is it allowed to just bring our own, blow them up, and use them?

Thanks!

Yes to both. I think mats are $12 to rent. We are bringing a couple cheap floats to blow up there and toss after we're done

We are bringing a couple of dollar store noodles to float around with. Since we are driving right to port they are super easy to just toss along in the car and bring aboard with us.

Yes you can rent or bring your own. If renting get there early before they run out! The dollar store ones I think are better floating than the rented ones. And you can just throw them away when done for the day!

Does anyone know if there is an air source for blowing up personal inflatable rafts? I would assume there's one nearby where you can rent them but not sure because they rent the floaty mats and I"m not sure they rent inflatable rings. Anyone know? Wondering if I should bring along an air pump

If I remember correctly the floats they rent on HMC are the foam w/ plastic coated kind, not inflatable. So I don't believe there is air pump to pump up your own floats with.

No pumps, they use memory foam type floats, thats why I think air floats are better but everyone seems to get them and enjoy them! If you have a need to blow up dollar store ones, they have a balloon pump that is the size of a paper towel cardboard roll.
