Fishing and snorkeling were my favorites because of the great staff and well planned outings.

Belize fishing
Dennis Seider: Permit
With its abundance of marine life the Belize’s Southern Reef is an angler's paradise! From reef trolling to river fishing to trying your luck on the flats you'll have a fishing experience you'll never forget! The Belize coastline offers the ideal ecosystem for a wide variety of marine life. There are many rivers, mangrove lagoons and islands that serve as nurseries to aquatic species. With the addition of abundant flats and the barrier reef game fish thrive!

To start off your trip your experienced guide will show off his skill catching bait in round cast nets near the mangroves. Let him know what you would like to catch for the day and he will do his best to help you accomplish your goals. Trolling is popular along Belize’s Great Barrier Reef drop-offs where you often can catch king mackerel, barracuda, grouper, jacks and snapper. Would you like to try for Grand Slam of saltwater fly-fishing – permit, bonefish and tarpon? Belize is renown for hundreds of flats and cayes, many within an one-hour boat ride of Hamanasi, that will challenge even the best angler’s skill. About one mile south of Hamanasi is the mouth of Sittee River. This tranquil river is good for tarpon and snook fishing. As an added bonus you may spot a host of birds and elusive crocodiles on the riverbanks!

Hamanasi has a catch and release policy. All permit, bonefish and tarpon are always released. Some fish like snapper, grouper and barracuda may be kept for the table.

A typical fishing trip will leave at 7:00 AM and return back to the resort at about 4:00 PM, but a half-day fishing can be arranged. Snacks, lunch and juice are provided on all day trips and snacks and juice on the half-day trips. The not-so-serious fisherman may decide to take mask snorkel and fins along to explore some of the beautiful reefs in the area. Trolling, spinning rods and fly fishing gear are available. Fishing is done with experienced local guides from 23-foot skiffs.
