Turneffe Flats has long been recognized as one of the premier saltwater ﬂy ﬁshing destinations
Located on the Turneffe Atoll, we specialize in superior service for a limited number of guests.
Awaken in your air-conditioned beachfront cabana to a expansive boneﬁsh ﬂats, lush mangroves and the surf breaking over the reef for miles in either direction. Watch a spectacular sunrise from your verandah and when night falls, the stars look close enough to touch.
We are ideally located to enjoy all of Turneffe’s 250 square miles of expansive ﬂats, coral reef and remarkably rich marine habitat.
World Renowned Fly Fishing
Boneﬁshing has been the mainstay of our ﬁshing for decades with Turneffe Atoll’s miles of crystal clear, wadeable ﬂats. While wading Turneffe’s extensive turtle grass ﬂats, you will sight-ﬁsh to large schools of boneﬁsh as well as smaller groups and singles.
Turneffe Flats is one of a select group of saltwater destinations where you can regularly experience the excitement of ﬂats ﬁshing for tailing permit. Good permit ﬁshing is available throughout the year.
Our prime season generally begins in mid-to-late April and continues to mid-October with June, July and August generally being our best months. Most of our migratory tarpon are in the 70-90 pound range, but we see some 150-200 pound monsters each year.
