ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE LOGISTICS
The multi destination trip has no set arrival and departure days.
During the course of this trip, guests will be staying at three different hotels. We’ve chosen each of hotels based on several key factors: All three of the hotels have large rooms with plenty of space for gear and rods. Each of the hotels is centrally located in its respective community in terms of proximity to restaurants and bars. Additionally, all three of the hotels were selected based on the ease with which the guides can pick up and drop off guests each day. Also included in the trip is our Slipstream Angling information package on all three of the towns you will be staying in. A handy list of restaurants and bars for each location is included, as well as where to buy Cuban cigars or whatever else you might need.
When based out of San Pedro, guests will be staying at the Sun Breeze Hotel in downtown San Pedro. This hotel features large comfortable rooms equipped with A/C and cable TV. There is a pool and bar located on the hotel grounds. The guides come right to the hotel pier to pick you up and drop you off each day.
For the second portion of the trip, based out of Water Caye, in South Central Belize, guests will be staying at the Blue Marlin Lodge. This hotel is situated on the north end of the island and is awash in sand and palm trees. Each cabana has two large queen beds per room, A/C, and private bath with hot and cold water.
For the third leg of the trip guests will be staying at Easy Living, in downtown Placencia. This hotel consists of four 2 bedroom suites meaning that each guest will have their own room for the last part of the trip. The suites are large and come with a fully equipped kitchen and bar area, a living room, private balcony and plenty of storage space. The walk down the side walk to where you meet your guide each day is about 5 minutes and takes you past a variety of local businesses.
The angling capacity on this trip is 6 rods.
This fishing trip is designed to allow guests the opportunity to fish with world class guides in three very different parts of Belize, all within the same trip. All three of the communities that guests will be staying in and fishing from while on this trip are as unique as the fishing environments that can be found surrounding each of the towns.
The San Pedro portion of the trip offers a traditional flats system with a great deal of skinny water, which is ideal for bonefish. Guests can anticipate fishing for bones on marl flats and sandy bottoms. There is very good bonefishing all the way up to the Belize/ Mexico border and guests can find good number of permit in the same areas. The Savannah Flats to the west of San Pedro are world famous for sight casting to tarpon in 4-6 feet of water and when the weather is decent, a trip to the mainland for tarpon and snook is usually quite productive.
On the fourth morning of the trip, guests will fly back to the Belizean mainland and will then fly down to the coastal town of Dangriga. From there you will take a waiting boat out to Water Caye, where you will meet your new guide. Water Caye is located right on the Barrier Reef, which means that, aside from the excellent permit fishing, there is also very good reef species action to be had. Big barracudas and jacks dominate this area, along with some nice sized tarpon in the spring and summer months.
After two days of fishing this area, guests will fish down to the southern town of Placencia, which is the last destination on the trip. You’ll meet your new guide for the next three days of fishing that afternoon over a cold beer where a game plan for the next day will be organized. The Placencia area is excellent for targeting tailing targeting permit on the flats and there is also a large mangrove forest to the west of town where guests can fish for juvenile tarpon and snook. If the weather cooperates, guests can make the run down to the Ycacos Lagoon to fish for permit or if tarpon is of interest, Deep River as well as a couple of other smaller rivers to the south, are a great way to spend the day.
