V Land & Holding

Fishing is a way of life on the island of San Pedro, and you’re invited to see why with V Land & Holding. On a private charter, you’ll get to explore the rich flats for a range of exciting and delicious fish, all under the guidance of a dedicated and professional crew.

Whether Captain Dave Simon or Carlos Franco will take you out, you’ll be in the hands of a professional guide. Capt. Dave came to Belize as a tourist and stayed because he loved it so much. Meanwhile, Capt. Carlos is a native to the area who has been fishing his whole life. Both promise a productive and fun-filled trip to sea.

Up to 4 guests are welcome aboard the 24’ Sabalo flats boat. Purpose-built for fishing these waters, she boasts a shallow hull to get you to the skinniest waters with ease. Make yourself at home as you take advantage of the complimentary drinks, including beer, and even a full lunch on full-day trips.

You’ll have everything you need for a productive day out on board, with spinning and fly fishing gear, along with plenty of live bait waiting for you. Feel free to bring your own equipment, if it suits you better, along with your own snacks on shorter trips.

These shallow waters are home to a range of prized fish, and you’ll spend your day getting your fish on like never before. Tough-fighting monsters like Tarpon, Snook, Permit, and Bonefish will provide a thrilling battle for even the most experienced of anglers, with tasty creatures like Snappers offering up a delicious treat to take home at the end of the day.

Anglers of all ages are welcome, but you should bring children’s life jackets if you want to take the kids fishing. You can even go spearfishing or snorkeling too, just get in touch with the crew before you go to make sure everything is in order. Other than that, all you need to do is grab your fishing license and settle in for a thrilling day.

Belize and San Pedro offer some of the world’s best inshore fishing. Why not come and discover it with V Land & Holding?
