Founded in 1997 by legendary guide Lincoln Westby, Blue Horizon Fly Fishing Lodge operates inside South Water Caye Marine Reserve, in an area known as “Permit Alley”. This region is regarded as the finest Permit fishing in the Caribbean. The rebuilt lodge is located on the same footprint as the original and positioned to maximize fishing on the flats during the best tides with the best guides during the best times of the day. There is no better place to fish for tailing Permit than Permit Alley.
The South Water Caye Marine Reserve has numerous schools of Permit, Bonefish, and Tarpon. The nearby Meso-American Reef also has abundant Permit and Tarpon, as well as assorted reef species. Tarpon and Snook are present year-round in the Placencia lagoon.
The five guest cabanas have a max. capacity for 10 anglers. Each is completely refurbished and furnished with two full-size beds and a private bathroom and on-demand hot water showers. A/C is standard in all rooms. Rod racks, shelving, and hangers will help you organize your gear during your stay.
