ferry PG to PB

Not done it meself but looked up their service when I was ther e in '03 so prices and schedules may vary a bit.
They are not RO-RO ferries , just fiberglass hulled lanchas with rows of seats but motorcyclists frequently wrestle their bikes aboard..
In March'03 two launches daily left PG at 9 am and 4pm , Not on Sundays. A detour by way of Livingston was possible if enough passengers requested it .
A boat from Livingston to PG makes a return trip on Tuesdays and Fridays.
The price in '03 was about $20 US per person , ONE WAY. The cost of the motorcycle would be additional, unknown to me, plus the cost of any extra hired help you would need to get the bike on board in Punta Gorda , and off again in Puerto Barrios.

Google "Requena charters" and email them.
I just contacted them while planning a C.Am. trip.

They ferry people from Guatemala to Punta Gorda, Belize. If you contact them they will make arrangements to use a larger boat to carry your bike.
