Turneffe Flats Lodge, Belize
*** Please contact us for information on our Turneffe Flats, Belize 2023 departure.***
For years we've searched for the perfect tropical destination for anglers and non-anglers who want to join their fishermen. We've tried many over the years and some have suited our needs well, but the ultimate answer is Turneffe Flats Lodge. 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.
Located on Turneffe Atoll, Belize's largest marine reserve, TFL has unmatched access to some of the best fishing, diving and snorkeling in Belize with more than 300 square miles of water to fish and miles of pristine wadeable flats. Bonefish and permit are found on the expansive flats and bars offering wading and plenty of opportunities for larger bonefish. Tarpon can be found at Turneffe in any month of the year in the creeks, channels and lagoons of the atoll, and large migratory tarpon pass through between April and October. Anglers enjoy fishing from comfortable 16-foot Dolphin Superskiffs custom built in the U.S.
Non anglers will enjoy snorkeling, diving, kayaking, or reading and relaxing at the infinity pool and lounging deck. Or perhaps they will take a Belizean cooking class with one of the cooks in the kitchen, do an introduction to diving course, or enjoy listening while Head Atoll Adventure Guide, Abel Coe, a Kekchi Mayan, explains 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!
We don't have a 2023 itinerary just yet, but except for a date change and perhaps a slight price adjustment, the 2022 brochure is a good reference. Please contact us with any questions that you many have. Craig and Karen Hayes have had TFL for more than three decades and no one knows this atoll better than these two amazing people. We are excited to be hosting a week at TFL, and we hope you can join us.
