Belize offers a World Class fishery. If you are interested in sight fishing for Permit, Tarpon, Bonefish or Snook, Belize is your destination. Belize’s coast offers hundreds of fishing flats and miles upon miles of coral reef from Ambergris Caye in the north to Placencia in the south. The flats and reef combine with endless mangroves to produce large quantities of small crabs, shrimp and bait fish that attract the larger sport fish. This vibrant ecosystem provides a wide variety of fish species and a haven for hunting the “Big Four” game fish. To take advantage of this vast coast and its bountiful fishery in one trip, we offer you a spacious mobile lodge or “mothership” called the Rising Tide. Belize Mothership Fishing Charters
