Belize is known as the Permit capital of the world with healthy flats that produce larger numbers. Our year round resident Tarpon range from the baby Tarpon to 80 pounds. The large migratory Tarpon arrive in May and stay until mid-October. These fish average 100- 180 pounds and we have seen some larger come through over the years. Bonefish are plentiful all year long and super fun on the flats. Over the past 10-years Belize implemented catch and release programs which has helped maintain a thriving, healthy fish population. Ten pound resident Bonefish will take you for a ride. Snook, Barracuda, Jacks, Ladyfish, Snaper, Cobia and Triggerfish are also abundant in these waters.

Fishing Program

Located on the Great Belize Barrier Reef and Warm Caribbean Ocean produces outstanding opportunities for Tarpon, Permit and Bonefish. Most of our fishing is done from a skiff and you will see schools of Permit swimming or singles tailing on shallow flats. Many anglers have caught the elusive Permit here, and many make regular trips for the thrill of landing these phantom of the shallows. Our English speaking guides are the best in the business, each specifically trained in unique casting styles for superior scoring opportunities.

Under Belizean law, nonresidents must buy a sport fishing license before fishing in Belizean waters. If you're going to be fishing for a week or less, the smart buy is a weekly license; a monthly license also is available.

Other Activities: You and your family can get into some of the best snorkeling and diving in the world here. Other activities include Bote stand-up paddle boards, kayaking, swimming with sharks, day trips to the Hol Chan Marine Reserve or in the Tres Cocos area where marine life abounds. We can also help you find Spa options, Mayan ruins, cave tubing, atrip to the Great Blue Hole, swimming with sharks and more.


Fish are present the entire year however we consider the best time to visit Belize between December and June. The fishing options are equal with the exception of the large migratory Tarpon who arrive in late April or early May ranging from 90-180 pounds.
