Food and provisions are to be found country-wide in local markets with wider selections available in the large towns and Belize City.
Fuel is available at all ports-of-entry. Fuel docks, however, are not accessible by keeled boats at all locations. It is advisable that current depths and clearances are verified before pulling up to any fuel dock. Jerry cans will come in handy when looking to refuel.
- There are fuel docks capable of handling keeled boats in Belize City, San Pedro, Big Creek, and Placencia;
- The fuel dock in Dangriga is not accessible by sailboats or catamarans;
- Water depths for the fuel dock in Punta Gorda are tide dependent.
