Belize Bonefish, Permit and Tarpon Fishing
Spring and summer months usher in the Tarpon migration through the gin clear waters of Belize. Come discover beautiful beachfront accommodations, delicious meals, great fishing and world class diving at this dream resort.
Ambergris is a 25 mile long and slender island, located just off the coast of Belize. Ambergris also happens to be the perfect place for a Caribbean vacation. The barrier reef is just a mile or so from the island, and is a haven for divers and snorkelers alike. The adventure begins upon arrival in Belize City. Most U.S. airlines service Belize City on a daily basis, and our travel professionals will be happy to quote airfare from your hometown. After clearing customs and immigrations, you will take a short twin engine flight to the town of San Pedro on the island of Ambergris Caye.
You will be met there by an agent of either Banyan Bay Resort, or the Victoria House Resort, our preferred accommodations on the island, and be transferred to the resort to unpack and relax.
Those electing to stay at Banyan Bay will enjoy the spacious 2 bedroom condos, complete with living room and a small kitchen, perfect for the family trip.
Those preferring the utmost in luxury, Victoria House is for you. The plantation style interiors of our accommodations come with king sized beds, draped in custom made linen canopies and are the perfect place for the couple looking for the best of everything. Both properties are beachfront with their own private dock, so meeting up with your fish guide each day is a breeze.
On this trip, you will fish the flats for bones and permit, cruise the channels for rolling tarpon, and have leisure days when you can schedule to dive or snorkel the Barrier Reef. You will also find yourself basking in the sun and just relaxing in the casual atmosphere. This first night is for getting acquainted with the surroundings and relaxing on the beach. The next three days are slated for flats fishing with world class guides.
You will have great shots for bonefish in the 2-6 pound range as well as realistic chances at small permit and medium size tarpon near the flats, or close to the mainland. Boats are 20 foot pangas with 55 horse motors. Both fly and light tackle anglers flock to Belize each year for the close proximity to fish, great accommodations and and the cool town of San Pedro.
