Fishing

Belize is not just a Scuba Diver’s Paradise. The Good Lord provided for the fisherman equally well. On Ambergris Caye, we enjoy fishing along the Reef, or fishing in the Flats behind the island or Fishing in the deep blue water beyond the reef.

If you prefer light tackle the saltwater flats that surround Ambergris Caye and the out island atolls provide some of the best bone fishing in the world.

We have an experienced staff of guides waiting to give you an unforgettable sport fishing adventure.

Reef Fishing

Hop aboard one of our 24′ – 26′ hand–crafted, Belizean–made boats and head to where the “big ones” are. This is fishing made easy. If you don’t know what you are doing don’t worry our guides do. If you don’t have fishing gear, we have plenty of rigs and one of them is bound to fit your hand. Your skipper will have everything you need to make your fishing trip a great success. Snapper, Yellowtail, Grouper and Barracuda. At Ramon’s Village we encourage catch and release unless you want us to cook your catch cause these are some good eating fish.

There’s always something wonderful cooking at Pineapples On The Beach, but you may want Chef Rommy to “cook your catch” of the day. For a very modest fee, we will clean, prepare, cook and serve your catch, your way, along with your choice of the rice of the day or baked potato and steamed vegetables.

We have Half day and Full day trips available. Water and Soft Drinks are provided. Lunches are not included. 1 to 4 persons per boat.

Tarpon/Bone Fishing

Use a fly rod or spinning rod, the choice is yours. You know your skill level so pick your “weapon” and let’s go gettum. If you forgot to bring your gear, do not fear we’ve got you covered. As a matter of fact, all you need to bring is yourself and your guest, some suntan lotion, a long sleeve shirt and a towel to cover your legs. The 24’ boat you’ll go in has a bimini top, but you’ll still get plenty of sun, and if you’re not well sun–screened, you’ll get cooked.

If you’re fishing for the Caribbean fighter the world calls ”bonefish,“ then get ready to flex your muscles because they’re about to get a real workout. If you’re in search for the elusive tarpon, just trust your Ramon’s Village guide. He knows where they are and we’ve seen some mighty nice photos of some record book catches. Why not go for the Triple Crown and include a nice permit along with your other catches. Perhaps the next record book catch is waiting for you to claim the credit. Of course, you know you can’t keep it so take your camera and record your moment for posterity.
