Fly Fishing Belize
The world-famous flats fishing in Belize has drawn anglers from the far reaches of the world…but once they get there, they don’t want to leave. Belize has relatively undeveloped shorelines that are a dream for inshore and flats fishing—Tarpon, Bonefish, and Permit swarm the river mouths, creeks, bays, and estuaries.
Offshore Belize Fishing Charters
Just a few miles offshore, lies the Belize Barrier Reef. This beautiful, thriving ecosystem is one of the most diverse examples of living coral in the world, and is even on the UNESCO World Heritage list. The reef is the perfect habitat for Black grouper, barracuda, snappers, and wahoo. In the deeper water, just beyond the offshore edge of the reef, the deep waters teem with marlin, mahi mahi, and tuna.
