This was my first visit to Tarpon Caye and my first ever attempt to land a Permit on a fly rod. With the expert help of Charlie Sr. and Charlie III, I had many opportunities to cast to tailing permit. I hooked one day 4 of our five day trip but he broke off!! I was beginning to think I... More

This was my second visit to Tarpon Caye from March 22-28th,and it did not dissapoint. Charlie Sr. and his staff of guides and are exceptional at what they do, which is to put you on fish. We had a group of 8 fishermen, 7 out of 8 of us at least hooked permit, not bad. The tarpon fishing was slow... More

Just back from Tarpon Caye Resort…actually spent 14 some days on the island. - First and foremost this is a fishing camp…Fishing is the number one focus of Tarpon Caye…maybe a day or two relaxing would be fine but amenities are certainly not “resort” like. This might change but for now fish, fish, fish. Permit are the major target. You... More

I organized and hosted a group of 8 anglers for a 4 night/3 day trip to Tarpon Caye in March. This trip was everything we expected it to be. Tarpon Caye did a great job ushering our group through airplane tranfers in Belize City and Placencia. The staff was very friendly and helpful, which is important when they were the... More

Had a great 3 days at the caye. Swam, lounged, had great meals prepared by the local chef and assistant chef. Reasonable price. Coming back next year. It was easy getting there from Placencia. Cab pick up and 1 hour boat ride out. Tarpon Caye is marketed as a fly fishing destination, but even if you don't fish-like me- it's... More

I have been to Tarpon Caye Lodge 5 times now. I keep coming back for the overall experience. It is not a five star resort and doesn't claim to be. It is a very unique experience out in the Caribbean on a small gorgeous island. My passion is fishing. This time I finally caught my grand slam, a permit, a... More

Spent 5 nights at Tarpon Caye Lodge, with fishing every day. I would highly recommend it, and we will return. The cabins over the water are really unique, unless you are in Tahiti! The warm breeze and sounds of the Caribbean will lull you to sleep. Everything is clean and fresh. In the morning, wake up to rich coffee, rolls... More
