Flats Fishing

Fishing in Belize

Catch and release fishing is done on our 22-25-foot Fly-Fishing Skiffs. You fish off the bow of the boat for the best visibility. Once on the flats the guide cuts off the engine and prepares his guest on the deck to fish while he poles the boat through the flats. The flats are about 25-40 minutes on the leeward side of the island and sometimes further away when targeting Tarpon.

  • 1/2 Day Flats Fishing: 7:30 AM – 11:00 AM
  • Full Day Flats Fishing: 7:30 AM – 2:30 PM
