Fishing in Belize has something to offer even the pickiest of sportfishermen and women. Stalk a Grand Slam on the saltwater flats with your fly rod, or hire one of our great Belize fishing charters and troll offshore for billfish and tuna. And luxury vacation spots don’t get much better either. The world-famous flats fishing in Belize has drawn anglers from the far reaches of the world.
The bad thing about this fishing paradise is that once you get there, you 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.
Belize Fishing Hotspots
Known as offering world-class fly-fishing for tarpon, bonefish and permit, Ambergris Caye is a top choice for anglers, eco adventures, couples and families looking for the best of Belize. This lodge offers the highest level of service and the best guides on the island. In addition to the fabulous flats fishing, you can also fish the second longest reef for many different species!
Whether you’re fishing Belize on the flats, stalking the Grand Slam, diving in and around our world famous barrier reef, or just relaxing in a tropical paradise, our Orvis Endorsed fly fishing lodge and resort on Ambergris Caye will suit the bill. At this fishing resort you can achieve the anglers’ ultimate dream – a Grand Slam of bonefish, tarpon and permit. The saltwater flats of Belize are world renowned for offering the opportunity to sight cast to tarpon 12 months a year. Fishing Belize lagoons can turn up lady fish or snook, or you can go offshore to the reef into the deep water for tuna and wahoo. Troll the reef for king fish or barracuda. Jig the bottom for snapper and grouper. The choice is yours.
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.
