Armando can’t wait to pass down his father’s best tips and tricks, and show you just what Belize’s beautiful waters have to offer!

Whether you choose to cruise the local reefs, or want to head further offshore, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to the species on offer. Expect to come face-to-gills with bottom dwellers such as Red Snapper, Barracuda, and King Mackerel, or battle world-famous big game such as Mahi Mahi, Yellowfin Tuna, and mighty Blue Marlin.

Capt. Armando and a friendly first mate will be on hand to show you the ropes, so don’t worry if you’ve never fished before – you’ll soon be jigging, bottom fishing, and more like a pro!
