Spearfishing in Belize

Visit Central and South America’s youngest country, and delve into a world you never knew existed. Bordering the Caribbean, Belize is home to incredible crystal clear waters. With over 450 offshore islands, known as “cayes,” there’s no end to what you can discover. What better way to do it than with a spear in your hand? Come spearfishing in Belize and explore the underwater magic while landing yourself a tasty treat!

What to Expect

There are plenty of barrier reefs to explore just a stone’s throw from Belize’s tropical coast. These calm, shallow waters are deceptive, as there’s a whole civilization of incredible fish underneath. Dive in and see for yourself!
 
Experienced spearfishers will relish the chance for some non-stop action.Beginners can learn the ropes from a professional “divemaster” and hook their first catch of many. 
 
The fish here are impressive. You won’t believe your eyes as stunning Snappers, dazzling Hogfish, monster Groupers, and rapid Barracuda make their way past you. Get ready to be on full alert to land that dream catch. 

Where to Go

There are plenty of spearfishing charters waiting to take you all along Belize’s coast. From the northern peninsulas to the southern barrier reef, these waters are awash with spearfishing opportunities. 
 
Head out of Ambergris Caye in the north and explore the offshore reefs in the heart of the famous Caribbean Sea. Take a charter out of San Pedro and leave the beaches behind for some thrilling hands-on combat against Snappers, Jacks, Groupers, Cobia, and more.
 
A trip out of the southern part of the coast will have you fishing the populated southern barrier reef. From Hopkins, Placencia, and Dangriga, you’ll find underground metropolises overflowing with exciting and delicious fish. Creep up on an endless number of Snappers, as well as beauties such as Mackerel, Groupers, and Cobia, and fill the boat. 

Need to Know

These waters are under threat from the invasive Lionfish. One female can lay as many as 2 million eggs, destroying up to 80% of the local fishery within 5 weeks. A key component of spearfishing in Belize is catching these monsters. Lucky for you, they’re also delicious!
 
There’s one more thing to be cautious of when underwater in Belize – Sharks. You may attract some unwanted attention from these dangerous beasts, so keep an eye out at all times. Fortunately, your professional guide will make sure you’re safe.

How to Prepare

Unlike some other popular tourist destinations, fishing charters in Belize always provide spearfishing equipment. Just make sure to get in touch with your captain to see if there’s a surcharge – and to make sure they don’t forget to bring it.
 
With lunch provided on most full day trips, and drinks and snacks on all others, there’s nothing left for you to do before coming aboard. Pack your swimsuit and a towel, and get your fish on.
 
Join the ever-increasing number of tourists making their way to Belize and hop aboard a sportfishing charter to make the most of your holiday!

If new to fly fishing in salt water do your homework. It's not the same as fishing for trout or salmon but that's also what makes it interesting.
