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, Spin, or Combo Tour.

Spin Fishing Tour

Belize: a stunning environment for fishing

Whether your bucket list is filled with fishing dreams or you’re just beginning to get a grip on this surprisingly athletic sport, you won’t find a better destination to try all forms of fishing than Manta Island! Because you know that location can mean the difference between a good fishing adventure and a spectacular one, fishing fanatics know that being on Glover’s Reef is the secret to success.

Spin fishing is also known as drop fishing. Your fishing guide will anchor the boat, and then you will bait and “drop” a line with a sinker to the bottom of the surrounding water, luring the fish. It’s one of the easiest ways to catch fish, and it also happens pretty quickly so, you aren’t waiting all day to feel a bite. Your guide will move to multiple spots along the reef in search of prizes you can enjoy that night for dinner after Manta Island chefs prepare your catch.
