Operating out of the breathtaking San Pedro, Belize, Uprising Tours Fishing specialize 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 twin 115 HP Yamaha engines, 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. Depending on the bite, your hit list will include Cobia, Barracuda, Amberjack, Jack Crevalle, Grouper, and an incredible variety of Snapper. The minimum age for these trips is 4.

Spearfishing is also an option on full day trips if you let the captain know in advance. The minimum age for spearfishing is 9 and you’ll mostly be focusing on Lobsters.
