Turneffe Flats is one of the best locations in the world to target permit and very, very large tarpon.
For nearly three decades Turneffe Flats has been known as one of the Caribbean’s finest saltwater fly fishing destinations. The diversity of our saltwater flats fishing sets us apart from other destinations and the opportunity to catch bonefish, permit and tarpon on a given day makes Turneffe Flats one of the rare spots to pursue a “Flats Grand Slam.”
The Turneffe Atoll is unpressured and has what many would consider the best permit fishing in all of Belize. Also, our bonefish populations are extremely healthy with huge groups of fish on each flat. Something that is extremely unique about our bonefish is that they don’t leave the flats throughout the tidal fluctuation. They remain on the flats 24 hours a day 365 days a year so you can fish to them throughout the entire day. As an added bonus during the Summer months we see our migratory tarpon. These are the true silver kings, 100-200+ pounds and July is a great month to fish for them on Turneffe.
Turneffe Flats is not only the ideal location for anglers, it’s also one of the best for couples and families. Their offerings of non fishing activities is extensive. Just to name a few, Sea kayaking, Atoll adventures that will have you snorkeling with Manatees and Dolphins. Scuba diving in the Great Blue Hole, on one of the most pristine reefs in the world or visiting the Belize zoo or Mayan ruins. Relaxing by the pool is always a great option as well.
Fishing on Turneffe Atoll is great year round. We pick our weeks we run hosted trips to correlate to the most productive tides and moon phases. The summer months are some of our favorites due to the fact that the large migratory tarpon are there as well. There is not much of a temperature veneration in Belize and oftentimes, can be cooler on the Atoll then in many of the states.
Here is Turneffe’s most recent promo video. Yes. That is a yellow/golden bonefish, Turneffe Atoll is the only location they are known to exist. Here is a video we shot during one of our stays. It will give you a great overview of the incredible fishery.
