Freedom Tours - The Reel Deal

Ambergris Caye, San Pedro, Belize

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 friendly. We only caught one fish (baracouda) which was a bummer but the crew tried different ways and places for us!

I was disappointed because I was hoping that each of will have our own fishing rods to fish with.

HI.  When it comes to deepsea fishing usually customers take turns either by hour or by fish.  We had 5 trolling rods on board. That is the maximum amount of rods that we can troll at the same time.  It is true that it was 6 of you, and we only had 5 trolling rods. But that is all we can troll at the same time anyway.
