Anglers are encouraged to bring fishing gear, with fishing licenses covered and fishing kayaks provided for exploring the atoll’s interior. Surrounded by a National Marine Reserve, Long Caye boasts the healthiest fish populations in Belize, as noted by the National Fisheries Department. Our fishing kayaks come fully equipped with tackle storage, rod holders, fish holds, and anchors, offering a convenient alternative to shore or dock fishing.

The versatility and stealth of our sit-on-top kayaks make accessing prime fishing locations a breeze, enabling anglers to reach spots otherwise inaccessible without a guide and boat.
