Operating out of the breathtaking San Pedro, Belize, Uprising Tours Fishing specializes in fishing and snorkeling charters. Captain Eric Henkis’ main goal is to provide his customers with a unique adventure perfectly tailored to their needs.

His boat is a 25’ custom-built skiff that can cater to up to 6 anglers of all experience levels. Powered by a 115 HP Yamaha engine, it comes with a fighting chair, a live bait tank, an ice-box, and top-notch navigational and safety gear.

The captain will show you the hottest reef, inshore and offshore spots and the most efficient trolling, spinning, and bottom fishing methods.
