Palapa Tours - 25 ft Boat

Palapa Tours is based on Ambergris Caye and offers a wide range of trips, spearfishing and reef fishing to snorkeling. Captain Chip Myvett runs the whole operation and is always happy to accommodate people who are looking to have a memorable time in Belize. Whether it’s a family outing or just a regular fishing trip, you’re after, Captain Chip has you covered.

His boat is a 25’ center console boat by Captain Shark’s, and it’s equipped with a 115 HP Yamaha engine. It has all the necessary equipment needed for a safe and productive journey, which includes a GPS device, fishfinder, and a live bait tank.

Taking a reef fishing trip with Captain Chip will have you visiting the second largest coral reef system in the world, Belize Barrier Reef. Among the fish you’ll be targeting are Wahoo, Grouper, Snapper, Jack Crevalle, and Amberjack.

If you’re itching to try something else apart from fishing, why not give snorkeling a go? You’ll be able to see lots of Manatees and Seahorses, as well as the beautiful seabed. If you’ve always wanted to see a Nurse Shark up close, this is the trip for you.

Included in the price are all the rods, reels, and terminal tackle you’ll need, as well as light snacks and water. After the trip, anything you catch will be cleaned and filleted by the crew so you don’t have to. Bring along a camera and a pair of polarized sunglasses, and you’re all set to have some fun.

Captain Chip loves his job because of two things: the first is the sheer fun it is being out on the sea, and the second is the excitement any angler feels when the fish bites. Being a family man himself, he knows how great family trips on the water can be, and he would love to show others how to have the most fun when fishing.
