Fly fishing in Belize is available from November to May. Your guide will bring you to salt flats, mangrove swamps, and the mouths of rivers. You can expect to catch bonefish, tarpon, permit, and snook.Most species caught while fly fishing are catch and release only. While our outfitters will provide you with rods, you will need to bring your own flies. You can purchase them at one of the big box retailers like Gander Mountain, Bass Pro, or Cabela’s. Fly fishing is limited to two guests per trip.
Rod and reel fishing is available any time of the year, on the rivers or in the Caribbean.You can troll, try bottom fishing, or regular spin casting. You might catch snappers, groupers, jacks, barracudas, mackerel, or king fish. Guides can provide equipment, or you can bring your own. You may be able to keep what you catch and have the chef prepare it for your dinner.
If you are interested in fishing, please let us know well before your arrival in Belize so we can book your guide. Full-day fishing trips $550, for 1 – 4 persons. This includes fishing equipment (except for fly fishing), lunch, water, ice, and drinks.
