About Raggamuffin

Some of the most beautiful blue waters in the world are situated along the coast of Belize. Boasting of the largest barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere and an abundance of marine and wildlife that surpasses all others, Raggamuffin Tours offers you the opportunity to see for yourself the jewel of the Caribbean.

Raggamuffin Tours was originated by James Jones who grew up on the island of Caye Caulker with well over 22 years experience as a Guide and Captain. James or Jimmy as he is known to his friends, was one of the first Licensed Tour Guides in the country and in his early years used to captain his father’s boat the Stonecrab under Jimmy’s Tours.

For many years Jimmy worked as an independent guide, taking passengers on day snorkelling cruises as well as the now famous Raggamuffin Tours overnight excursion. His dream was to create an operation in which he and other guides could run the overnight on a more regular basis.

Togther with his wife, Charlie Jones, they set up Raggamuffin Tours back in 2002 purchasing the boat Ragga Gal and years later Ragga King, Ragga Queen and Ragga Prince.

All tours are captained and crewed by experienced Licensed Tour Guides and Licensed Captains, high quality equipment (snorkeling, fishing and camping gear) and food are all provided – in fact, all you need to bring with you is suntan lotion and a smile!

Raggamuffin Tours is situated on Caye Caulker, an island that offers its own special brand of laid-back tourism. In the past the major industry of the island has been fishing and this has assisted in keeping this island un-spoilt by tourism. Tourism now grows around it, allowing it to maintain its beauty, its culture and unique island vibe. Golf carts and bicycles are the only heavy traffic to frequent the three main sandy roads running north to south and locals and tourists alike walk around bare foot. Caye Caulker is truly a ‘desert island’ paradise.
