It is always a little scary hiring a guide anywhere, and even more so outside of the U.S. The guides at the Blue Bonefish Lodge are all born and raised in Belize, and have spent their lives on the water.
We have personally spent many days on the water with each and every one of our professional Belizean guides, making sure that they have the skills and the drive to make your trip a successful one.
They are all English speaking, skilled at boat handling and accomplished fly casters, with scores of landed permit, bonefish and tarpon to their credit. They all know the waters of Ambergris Caye and the surrounding islands very well, and can all fish for any and all of the species available in our area, including tarpon, permit and bonefish.
Jorge (George) has been guiding fly fishing now for 7 years. The Johnsons spent a few hundred days on the water with him, training him in the subtleties of being a top fly guide. He is great with all levels of fly fisherman from beginners to experts.
Marco has a dozen years of fly fishing guiding under his belt and owns 2 specialty flats boats, custom designed by him and built here on the island. He is a patient instructor and a bonefish and permit specialist and has guided many of our clients to their first ever permit by both fly and spin.
Jose is on of the top guides on the island. Born and raised in San Pedro, he grew up learning the flats from his father and uncle who have been guiding flats fisherman for decades in Ambergris Caye. His favorite fish to target on the flats is the Tarpon (sabalo).
David is one of the hardest working up and coming guides on the island. He has excellent eyes for spotting the grey ghosts on the flats. You will enjoy his personality and enthusiasm while spending a day with him on his boat.
Panni is Jose’s father and one of the senior guides on the island. He specializes on wading and stalking bonefish on the flats. He is also our go-to guide for snorkeling trips, specifically targeting lobster and conch, and he heads up our reef fishing excursions.
