Boat capsizes at sea

Thursday, June 7th, 2012

The San Pedro Sun can confirm that there was an accident at sea shortly after 11AM on Thursday June 7th. The boat involved in the incident belongs to a local tour operator that was chartered by Ramon’s Village Divers. Information is still shortcoming as the incident was unreported to all the relevant authorities, but according to multiple sources, the boat along with some divers, overturned outside of the reef off Ambergris Caye.

The incident occurred near the Tuffy Channel, directly in front of San Pedro Town. The San Pedro Sun attempted to speak to several of the tourists but they would only say that “the boat capsized and everything is fine”. We understand that no one was hurt except for a few tourists that received bruises and were being attended to at the dive shop.

The Coast Guard, the Belize Port Authority, Hol Chan Marine Reserve and San Pedro Police indicated that no one has reported the incident as of press time. The San Pedro Sun will continue to pursue the story.
