The Best Belize Fly Fishing Experience

Did you know that Belize is one of the best fly fishing destinations in the world? Our country’s coastline is extraordinarily diverse, featuring the second largest barrier reef on the planet, interlocking rivers, creeks, lagoons, mangrove islands, hundreds of small cayes, and shallow water flats. This unique geography provides the perfect habitat for hundreds of species of fish and marine life and makes for a fishing paradise. In fact, Belize’s shallow water contains the only classic tarpon flats outside South Florida. Our flats are world-renowned for offering the opportunity to sight cast large schools of tarpon year-round. When you stay with us at Mahogany Bay Resort, you can experience the best fly fishing in Belize. 

Half-Day Boat Trip: Fly Fishing the Flats 

We’re so lucky to live in San Pedro on Ambergris Caye, where the west side is renowned for its clear, shallow flats rich in bonefish. When you choose to go fly fishing in Belize with us, our expert local guides from our onsite fishing outpost will take you out on a boat ride for the ultimate saltwater fly fishing trip. You’ll be supplied with fly rods with everything you need to reel in the coveted “grand slam” of flats fishing—a permit, bonefish, AND tarpon!  

(Please be advised that these three species are catch-and-release only, by Belize regulation.) 

Whether you’re an experienced angler or you’re in Belize fly fishing for the first time, you’ll have a blast on this excursion. You’ll come home with magical fishing tales to tell for years to all your friends and family.  

Custom all-day or overnight fly fishing trips are also available, varying each season. Please inquire with our adventure specialists at Bookings for more info!
