Kayak Fishing in Belize

Kayak Fishing in Belize
Belize, formerly known as British Honduras, is a small Central American country wedged in between Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, Guatemala and Honduras. Belize draws thousands each year to blue waters protected by the second-largest barrier reef in the world. You can fish from a kayak for Spanish jack, mackerel, tarpon, barracuda and other fish.

Bite Me Fishing Adventures

Bite Me, based on Ambergris Caye, offers three different fishing options, including one designed or do-it-yourself types. The kayak fishing trip for the do-it-yourself folks uses Freedom Hawk 14 fishing kayaks, which are so stable that you can stand on them without fear of flipping or turning over. Bite Me rents kayaks for 24 hours, and can deliver up to four kayaks to your hotel or beach. Bite Me also assists with arranging proper fishing licenses, gives advice for bait and tackle use, and offers maps to where the fish are striking.
