Freedom Tours - Carly

Nurse Shark Street, Lagoon Sid…
San Pedro, Belize

Freedom Tours Fishing Unlimited invites you to feel the wind in your hair aboard ‘Carly’, the second of Capt. ‘Hillyboo’ Lara’s deep sea fishing boats. Fully equipped with a cabin, an enclosed ‘head’ and seating for your comfort, she is also fitted with a fighting chair, outriggers and downriggers for a top of the range sportfishing experience. The set up includes a trolling spread of up to six lines, allowing you to make the most of the blue water fishing opportunities around Belize.

Due to the island’s nearshore drop off, it only takes 20 minutes to get to deep sea fishing grounds. This means even short trips can be productive, although you’re always in with the best chance of catching the fish of a lifetime on a full day trip! Fish usually targeted on these trips include Mahi-mahi, Tuna, Sailfish, Wahoo and White and Blue Marlin.

Freedom Tours Fishing Unlimited is owned and operated by Capt. ‘Hillyboo’ Lara, an experienced captain who has been fishing the area for 25 years and is also an experienced and successful tournament fisherman. Both he and his staff will do everything they can to put you on to the fish of the lifetime!

At the end of the day the crew will clean and fillet your catch ready for you to have it cooked at one of the excellent seashore restaurants in the area.
