Freedom Tours Fishing Unlimited invites you to try your hand at deep sea fishing aboard ‘Reel Deal’, a fully equipped 38 ft boat built locally specifically for blue water fishing around Belize. The boat is furnished with a cabin with an enclosed ‘head’, a fighting chair, outriggers and downriggers, and also features a 10 foot canopy to ward off the heat stroke. Up to six lines can be trolled at the same time, giving you the best possible chance of catching a fish.

Due to Belize’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. Soft drinks, water and ice are included in the price, as is lunch on full day trips.

The crew was very knowledgeable and communicative. i had contacted Captain Hilly a couple of weeks prior to our vacation. He was very quick to respond and inform me about my reservation. I told him that we were staying in a secluded airbnb on San Pedro. He informed me that his taxi knew where we were and would be picking us up. I was a little apprehensive but his taxi driver found us without any trouble and on time. Once we arrived we were introduced to our crew, Carlos and Ramito. Each one of these guys had an insurmountable amount of information about the fishing in San Pedro and it showed. Within the first 15 minutes fishing, we had hooked a Barracuda. Unfortunately, it got away as I was reeling it in. But that wasn’t even the high point of the trip.
The highlight of the trip was when we hooked a Sailfish. I didn’t think we would hook one of these during this trip but we did! I managed to bring it on board after 15 minutes of fighting with it. We also managed to catch 3 Tuna and 1 Spanish Mackerel. It was a experience I will never forget!

I was cautiously optimistic about going out on a full day trip with my wife, but I’m so glad i did! We caught lots of fish from Baraccuda, blackfin tuna, and Mahi Mahi. The crew Marlon and Ramon workes their tails of for us, never slowing down trying to fill the live well. You will not reget booming a trip! I will be booking again.

Thanks. Was one of those fishing days. Too much seaweed drifting. At least the barracudas and small tunas saved the day
