Turneffe Flats Lodge, Belize
April 25- May 2, 2020
For years we’ve looked for the perfect tropical destination – first for anglers, but secondly for non-anglers who want to join their fishermen. We’ve tried many over the years and some have suited our needs well. We have found our answer at Turneffe Flats Lodge. Today, TFL offers not only great flats fishing for all the species – bonefish, permit, tarpon, snook - etc., but also a variety of superb accommodations and non-angling activities.
Bonefish and permit are the primary targets at Turneffe Flats with expansive flats for wading and plenty of opportunities for larger bonefish. Permit may be found on the flats and bars throughout the atoll and anglers wade or fish from a skiff. Tarpon inhabit the creeks, channels and lagoons of the atoll and come in all sizes.Anglers enjoy fishing from comfortable 16-foot Dolphin Superskiffs custom built in the U.S.
Non-anglers can enjoy snorkeling, diving, kayaking, or reading and relaxing at the infinity pool and lounging deck. Or perhaps they can take a Belizean cooking class with one of the cooks in the kitchen, do an introduction to diving course, or enjoy listening to Head Atoll Adventure Guide, Abel Coe, a Kekchi Mayan, explain the history of the Mayan in Belize. On Wednesdays, guests can arrange to visit a Mayan site or the Belize Zoo. There is lots to do!
Craig and Karen Hayes have had TFL for more than three decades and no one knows this atoll better than these two remarkable people. We are excited to be hosting a week at TFL, and we hope you can join us.
