Once you get past the beautiful reefs of Belize, you’ll be greeted by a variety of big game species that rival any of the hottest deep sea fishing destinations in the Western Hemisphere.
You can start trolling for sailfish right along the drop-off, or go out a bit further and have a go at marlin or blackfin tuna. The familiar offshore lineup of wahoo, mahi mahi, and swordfish are all here, too.
You can find most big game fish as deep as 650 feet, and getting to the hot spots usually takes no longer than half an hour. These waters have seen some big catches over the years and are home to many annual fishing tournaments. The deep blue water is just miles from Ambergris Caye!
