For the fishing enthusiast, we have several types of fishing to pick from, Deep Sea Fishing, Reef Fishing and Fly Fishing. Although fishing is seen as a lucky sport, we have several experienced tour guides that know the best spots where to get the fish that you are after. If it is deep in the blue waters of the Caribbean Sea, low on the flats or dropping a line on the reef, be assured that you will be guided by a professional fisherman.
Deep Sea Fishing:
If you like to catch that big fish that will have you struggling trying to pull it in, this is for you. Deep Sea Fishing takes you on a journey outside our barrier reef on the deep blue to catch fish like marlin, wahoo, mahi mahi, tuna, etc... What will be biting depends on the time of year and the location. We have guides that will go beyond the drop off and down South of Belize to Lighthouse reef and Turneffe Atolls.
Once out in the deep, one can do some fast trolling to catch fish like mahi mahi and wahoo, drift fishing with live bait to catch marlins and sailfish and/or bottom fishing for those big jacks, red snappers and sharks.
We can provide a half day or a full day of fishing and we have several sizes of boats to accommodate bigger groups or families that would like to go together.
Reef fishing takes you to our barrier reef which is parallel to our island. Most of the fishing is done inside the reef and is probably the most popular fishing done in Ambergris Caye as the probability to catch a fish is high. There are many spots along the reef where one can fish and usually to reef fish it is only minutes away from your hotel.
Snappers, groupers, barracudas and jacks are common fish caught on the reef. Trolling is a good way to get those barracudas or maybe some horse-eyed jacks. Also bottom fishing is done to get those medium sized snappers and groupers.
Reef Fishing also comes in two flavors, half day or full day.
It is a Grand Slam! Yes the fly fishman's ultimate goal! Ambergris Caye has many lagoon flats, channel cuts and mangrove inlets on the West side which provide great habitats for flat fishing.
Tarpon, bonefish and permit are the catch of the day for a Grand Slam. These fish are protected by the laws of Belize and are only for catch and release. Because these fish are protected, they are abundant in our waters. This provides a great chance for the fly fisherman to get his Grand Slam!
Flat fishing is also done on a half day or full day.
Water, gear and bait is included. Price depends on the boat and persons per group.
