BELIZE - SAN  PEDRO

Location

San Pedro is situated 30 miles north east of Belize City and about 22 miles south of the Belize/Mexico border. The town of San Pedro is located on Ambergris Caye, which is the largest island off the coast of Belize.

The Fishing

The San Pedro fishing area is made up of large mangrove islands and bays, semi-soft marl, healthy turtle grass flats and hard packed sand flats which are excellent for wading. The reef side, which sits north of San Pedro and heads all the way up to the Mexican border, is also a great bonefish habitat. If the weather is calm, a day up at Rocky Point, where the reef angles into the island, is extremely productive and makes a fabulous day trip. Because many of the flats consist of a marl based bottom, the majority of the bonefishing is done from the skiff. There are some hard packed areas that are excellent for wading and are very productive so guests should let their guide know that this is something you'd like to try.

The tarpon fishing to the west of San Pedro is consistently some of the best found anywhere. The Savannah Flats are world famous for their ability to produce tarpon year round. Juvenile fish in the 25-60 pound range can frequently be found throughout the year, with much larger tarpon showing up in the late spring and summer. The spring also means permit when fishing San Pedro. Not many people know it but excellent numbers of permit show up around Ambergris Caye from late April until the fall. Virtually all of our 25 pound + permit have been caught during this time frame. Permit will usually be found in about 6 to 12 feet of water so all shots will be from the bow of the boat as opposed to wading. The coastline has a vast array of creeks, lagoons and brackish estuaries that hold every imaginable species of fish that live in these environments. Inside the reef, the cayes, sandbars and tidal flats are dynamic fish producing habitats. If you're serious about chasing a "Slam", there are few places better.

The Sun Breeze Hotel is located right in the heart of San Pedro and we feel that it makes the ideal base from which to fish the San Pedro area. The hotel is located right on the beach and is close to a wide variety of bars and restaurants to meet all tastes. The rooms at the Sun Breeze are perfect for gear hounds in that there is lots of space for gear bags and rods.
