Palapa Tours - 30 ft Boat

Palapa Tours is a charter service based on Ambergris Caye that provides a diverse range of packages, going from snorkeling trips to deep sea fishing. It’s run by Captain Chip Myvett, whose enthusiasm about fishing is contagious. He and his crew will make sure you get a trip that is tailored to your individual needs and wants.

You will be fishing aboard a 30’ Bradley center console boat that’s powered by two 200 HP Yamaha engines that can have it going up to an impressive 45 knots. In addition to all the necessary safety and navigation gear, the boat also comes with a fighting chair, outriggers, as well as a livewell for your bait.

If you’re looking to catch some big game fish, then you should definitely check out Captain Chip’s deep sea fishing packages. Among the fish you will encounter are Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, and more. Those in the mood for something different can check out his spearfishing and reef fishing options which are a great option for landing lots of Grouper and Snapper.

If you’re not all that interested in fishing, but like a hands-on approach, why not go snorkeling? The sights are beautiful to behold, and you will be able to see plenty of Manatees and Seahorses.

The price includes all the necessary rods, reels, and terminal tackle, as well as light snacks and water. After the trip, anything you catch will be cleaned for your convenience. Pack a pair of polarized sunglasses, bring a camera, and you’re good to go.

Captain Chip loves his job because of two things: the first is the sheer fun it is being out on the sea, and the second is the excitement any angler feels when the fish bites. Being a family man himself, he knows how great family trips on the water can be, and he would love to show others how to have the most fun when fishing.
