Join Dave Hadlock & John Bytheway on a Book of Mormon cruise adventure. This 7-night cruise out of Galveston, Texas includes stops in Belize and Mexico. Belize & Costa Maya are consistently the highest rated stops for a Book of Mormon cruise itinerary (one of a few stops with ruins that date back to Book of Mormon time period). These are awesome tours you should look for on any Book of Mormon cruise. You will love the private tours we offer in each stop. We will visit some of the most amazing ruins that can be seen from a cruise itinerary, including Lamanai and Tulum. Dave & John will help bring the scriptures to life as they teach onboard the ship and on site.

Day 3 : Cozumel, Mexico

February 14, 2022
Tulum is possibly the most beautiful of all the Mayan sites! It sits majestically on a hill overlooking the spectacular Caribbean Sea. This ancient city was more than likely a “port” where trade occurred and is as remarkable today as centuries ago. The history and beauty of this city are impressive to everyone. If you like to take pictures this site will be a favorite.

Day 4 : Belize City, Belize

February 15, 2022
Take an exciting speedboat ride down the New River to get to the amazing Maya ruins of Lamanai. These ruins date back the Book of Mormon time period. Climb the huge temples, search for howler monkeys or just enjoy the beautiful jungle setting. Authentic Belizean lunch will be served upon arrival to the ruins. If you are taking a cruise to the Western Caribbean, this is a can’t-miss excursion. This tour is consistently rated a very highly by our guests.

Day 5 : Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Honduras

February 16, 2022
“This tour takes us around the island to savor the beauty and diverse reality of Roatan. We pass several villages while our local guides tell us about their beautiful country. Our first stop is at an iguana farm. Hundreds of iguanas are raised and protected here for lucky tourists to see. This farm also offers many up-close photo opportunities with other animals such as turtles and parrots. We continue on our circle tour with a stop at a sandy beach next to a fun little village for a couple of hours of relaxing, swimming or snorkeling.”

John Bytheway
John was born and raised in Salt Lake City, and he served his mission in the Philippines. Following his mission he attended the University of Utah, and later graduated from BYU. John has taught the Book of Mormon at Brigham Young University, and the BYU Salt Lake Center since 1996. In 2003, he earned a Master’s Degree in Religious Education. He is the author of more than two dozen books and CDs many of which, he says, are effective non-prescription sleep-aids. He loves to golf, write, read, and play the banjo and guitar. John is a founding member of the local chapter of the Andy Griffith Show Re-run Watchers Club, and does a spot-on impersonation of Deputy Sheriff Barney Fife. John was recently released as bishop of the Salt Lake Winder 10th Ward, and is now teaching Sunday School with his wife, Kim. John and Kim have six children and a completely full SUV which doubles in value when it’s full of gasoline.
Dave Hadlock
Dave has worked as a tour director to religious sites for over 16 years. He began as a contracted guide working for other LDS travel agencies while owning an export clothing business (used and vintage clothing). He enjoyed the vintage clothing business. It was kind of like prospecting for gold, only looking for old clothes. As the vintage clothing business declined, he moved into travel full time with the opening Bountiful Travel. His qualifications for religious teaching began as a missionary when he felt his soul enlarge (in the words of Alma) as he heard a master teacher of the scriptures. He wanted to be able to help others feel the same way through his teaching. He began an intense study of the scriptures as a missionary and continued after his mission working on a Master’s degree in Ancient Near Eastern Studies (Biblical Hebrew emphasis). He studies looking for unique insights into the scriptures and has worked hard at learning how to teach those insights in an interesting manner. His background in Mesoamerican studies and Ancient Near Eastern studies lends to unique insights into the scriptures. He is laid-back and loves to have fun. He loves teaching and being with people. So for him this is the ultimate job. He hopes that his love for the scriptures is contagious as he teaches. He’s taken over 100 tour groups to Central America and Israel over the last 14 years and hopes you will join him on one of his trips.
