Whipray Caye Fishing Lodge
Nine miles off the coast of Placencia, Belize on a tiny tropical island you will find Whipray Caye Fishing Lodge. Owned and operated by Daniel Cabral and his family, this is a friendly, welcoming lodge located right in the middle of a flats fishing paradise.
Surrounded by deep, blue water, the healthy sand and turtle grass flats of the area are home to some of the largest permit found anywhere. Many of the nearby mangrove islands also hold good numbers of tarpon that can range in size from 20 to over 70 pounds. Schools of bonefish can occasionally be found in some areas of the cayes for those anglers interested in pursuing the elusive grand slam. Daniel will take you to spots known only to him for some of the best fishing you will find anywhere. If you want Permit, Tarpon, Bonefish, Yellowtail, Snapper, King Mackerel, Barracuda, or Grouper, they are all here.
The Cabral family have been guides working from Whipray Caye for over thirty years and are some of the finest, most experienced saltwater guides in Belize. Meals are served at the famous Sea Urchin bar/ restaurant, with fresh local seafood served family style. When you’re not fishing, you’ll enjoy palm trees and breezy days spent sipping rum punch or Belikin (the famous national beer of Belize) while lounging on a hammock, and cool star-lit nights with the gentle shush of breaking waves on the shore directly in front of your cabana.
This is a very remote and unspoiled area – one of the few remaining in the Western Hemisphere. After you make the trip and finally reach Whipray Care, with warm smiles and ice cold Belikins at the ready, Daniel and his staff make it very easy to unwind and adjust to the slow rhythms of island life.
