Brandon and Tyler came to our rescue when we booked our fishing excursion last minute and they brought out a boat just for our family and gave us the greatest trip! They were so friendly and knowledgeable and added lots of fun and energy so we weren't even phased by the overcast misty weather. Would recommend them to anyone. You better Belize it! Thanks again for one of our greatest memories of our entire cruise vacation!

Garbutt's is probably best known for fly fisherman who want to catch the big 3 - bonefish, permit and tarpon. All I want out of them is a day on the water, and maybe catch a few fish, And they do not disappoint. It's a family run business with Mr Dennis in charge and Skully, Ray and George serving as guides. Who will put you on the fish. I've been out with them 4 or 5 times now and always tied into something. Skully put me on to a tarpon and I've never smiled more. Prices seem to vary but $600Belize will get a boat, fishing gear, lunch and a driver/guide. Worth every penny in my book,

We didn't sleep at this lodge. We just took a day trip with them. Our boat captain "snake" was awesome and we had a great trip to Snake Cayes for snorkeling. Bring Bug Spray!!! We got eaten alive by tiny sand flies on one of the islands and had to retreat back into the boat. Parts of the ride can get pretty bumpy depending on weather, so be prepared. We stopped at 2 different snorkel spots. The first was nice with some reefs and small fish and some different and beautiful jellyfish. The second spot was amazing - we saw beautiful Eagles rays swimming around us, and a huge barracuda. We had lunch on another island after, and enjoyed the boat ride back. We didn't sleep at this lodge. We just took a day trip with them.

We shot down here on an unexpected visit. We were in Placencia when I read Punta Gorda was the permit Capitol of the world. We jumped on a plane and went out for a day of fly fishing with guide Scully, from Garbutt’s Fishing Lodge. Best fly fishing guides in Punta Gorda! Family owned and operated, these guys grew up here, and know this water like the back of their hand. We had tough weather, but we had an awesome day learning what Punta Gorda permit fishing has to offer. Can’t wait to schedule a week here!

Was touring and visiting friends in PG but always wanted to do a day fishing trip. Say no more, David Garbutt's Fishing lodge setme up. My guide was Alex Leonardo who not only took me to spots catching Snook (most Delicious), Kingfish, Barracuda, and Pilot fish. Alex even gave me personalize pointers making me a better flycaster!
