Just the best abroad the "UPRISING" Sun was shining the weather was sweet.... Every day it was different. It all starts early, as the early bird catches the fish. A cast of the net to catch the first batch… Read Full Report →

Went fishing on Thursday, April 5, 2018

Our last full day on the island. Eric and Jiggy knocked it out of the park with a full day fishing, snorkeling and beach barby. Eric is a small independent and the originator of this style of day trip. Everything was first class. You won’t do better with anyone else. We were amazed with the shore lunch and my wife wants to bring Jiggy home! You will not be disappointed with Uprising. Great family or group fun. If you undecided about who to go with then look no further. These are the guys.

Had a great day with Captain Eric and his crew. The fishing was good and the BBQ was above and beyond what we had expected. We chose not to snorkel so that allowed us a little more time for fishing.Would highly recommend this trip

We had so much fun on our trip, we loved that we caught a bunch of fish then jumped in the water with our snorkel gear when we saw some manatees passing by. Eric and Jiggy are super laid back and make the day relaxing and fun. Thank you!

Eric and Jiggy are amazing guides.  We have 2 kids (9 & 7). They were kind, patient and helpful with the kids to ensure they enjoyed fishing as much as we did.  The BBQ after fishing was beyond words-it was so delicious! Do not miss the chance to fish with these guys.

Erik and Jiggy took my family and I reef fishing on June 22 and put us on fish immediately, we hooked Snapper, Barracuda, Tuna (skipjack) etc. It was a great day. They cleaned and filleted our fish ready for our hotel restaurant, it was awesome. I would highly recommend Uprising Charters

Eric and Ziggy were great!  I have two young girls with limited fishing experience, they had a blast and caught more than enough for lunch.  Fresh fruit and Rum Punch was the icing on the cake!

Picked up at resort dock right on time.  Captain Eric & his mate Giggy were fantastic.  Very professional and very family friendly.  Fished a half day in several reef locations and caught over 30 fish.  Triggers, Snappers, Groupers, & Lady Fish. 

Next Eric took us to his “private” beach for lunch.  They prepared the fish two different ways, potatoes, corn on the cob, ceviche, tortillas, beans, and fruit.  Plus water, soda, rum punch and rum & coke.  Very tasty!!!

Lastly Eric took us back to the reef for snorkeling.  After about 90 minutes there we headed back to our resort.  Well planned to maximize our time.  All my future trips in San Pedro/Ambergris Caye will be with Eric.  Tight Lines!!!

Eric called us early in the morning because rain was threatening.  We decide to go ahead with the tour after a one hour delay.  While we were not able to have the lunch on the beach, we had an awesome fishing trip and snorkeling afterward.  We all caught fish, and then we saw not only turtles but a nurse shark as well during the snorkeling stop.  Both Eric and his mate were very professional and a delight to be around.  This is the only outfit we will use from now on.
