If “fishing” is the answer that comes to mind first when you’re asked the question, “What gives you the most pleasure?” perhaps it’s time to leave the familiar and take your passion to the next step: Fishing in Belize. This nation is the ultimate in diversity so whether your idea of heaven is fly fishing, deep-sea fishing or something in-between, you’re practically assured a “grand slam” experience, even if you’re just a beginner with big dreams.
Maximize your experience by choosing Ray Caye as your home base during your time in Belize. The island is gorgeous, accommodations are luxurious and amenities rival anything you’ve experienced in the past. Of course, the best part of this experience is being in the middle of the Caribbean Sea and in close proximity to the bait fish needed to attract the locals: permit, tarpon and bonefish.
Set off on a boat. Stand on the Ray Caye pier. It matters not where you position yourself because fish are everywhere, and while the name of the game is “catch and release” on the island, you can enjoy your fill of excitement by taking tours that deliver you to Belize’s Great Barrier Reef or flats for a variety of fishing excursions that test your mettle and give you bragging rights you’ll never find back home. Obtain the fishing license you need before you arrive (https://apps.coastalzonebelize.org/) so you don’t waste a minute of time.
Whether you’re perfectly satisfied fishing from our pier or only a day on the ocean with a gourmet lunch and cold beer will do, any and all Ray Caye fishing experiences are guaranteed to give you the thrills you crave and since you’ll never be very far from the resort, you can tell friends that you spent all of your time fishing rather than getting to and from hot spots!
