Belize Fishing Tours

Fishing in Belize is unlike anything you’ve tried before plus, you won’t have to make up any fish tales because you’ll have selfies to prove your prowess! Known for its extensive coral formations, dense mangrove systems, and plentiful islands, Belizean waters are home to more than 500 species of fish. In 1993 under the Fisheries Act, the Glover’s Reef Marine Reserve was established as a protected area with five different management zones. There are regulations for each zone which encourage catch & release. But don’t worry about keeping track of all that, our experienced guides will handle the details, and whether you’re an avid, intermediate, or novice fisherman, our fishing tours cater to all levels of experience. To make it even more exciting, our top-notch chef will be more than happy to cook your catch of the day to your specifications upon return to the resort. Try your luck on the flats with our Fly Fishing Tour or book a Troll, Drop, or Combo Tour.
