I tried to book a fly fishing trip because I know that their main guide, Steven, is one of the best in Belize. When contacting Mr. Julian, the owner of the company, he sent all kinds of photos of his boat and equipment and I confirmed a fishing trip for my visiting guest, who is in his 80s and this is on his bucket list, fishing the flats at South Water Caye in Belize. I confirmed the trip via WhatsApp and we contacted Mr. Julian several times via WhatsApp to reconfirm. My guest only had two days available before leaving the country. The morning of the first day that we had already confirmed with Julian, I woke up in Hopkins to see Steven, his main guide, having coffee in the park. I asked Steve why he wasn't on the boat out fishing with my guest and he advised that his boss, Mr. Julian had never contacted him about it. My co-worker who was also helping make the arrangements tried to get in touch with Mr. Julian again and no luck. I verbally told Steven that we needed them to please take us on the tour the following day (that now being today) , as this was our last possible chance for our guest. Steven advised me that I need to confirm with his boss, Mr. Julian. Again I tried to contact Mr. Julian, to no answer. Not until 10:30 pm last night did Julian contact my coworker and advise her that his boat is broken and that they cannot find any other boat. I understand that sometime equipment fails, but if you have a trip that day or the following day why wait until almost midnight to check out your boat and gear? Steven tried his best for us this morning on his own to find a boat, but by this time is was all too late. Mr. Julian had no consideration for his commitments, scheduling, or the importance of showing up on time. Our guest is well in his 80s and he may never have the chance to fish here again. All other guides were booked so we had no chance of finding a back up this late in the game. Mr. Julian seems to have no regard for his client's needs and I hope he will respond to the text messages I sent last night and this morning which he has been ignoring. I don't want this in any way to reflect badly on Steven, their guide, as I have worked with him many times in the past freelance and he truly is one of the best guides in Belize.

I booked a flyfishing trip and brought my wife along who has never flyfished before. I was first pleasantly surprised that the guide gave us a free casting clinic the afternoon before the trip. He helped my wife with her cast and in about 20 minutes had her throwing 50’ of line. I picked up a few tips as well. It was nice to see her confident going into the trip and excited as well.He picked us up at our resort early and we departed down the beautiful Sitter river as the sun was coming up. It was about a 20 minute ride out to the permit flats. When we arrived our guide Steve saw tails within the first half hour and my wife took her first shots. She did really well and got one to follow but it didn’t take the fly.On the next flat we found another pod of tailing fish and I hooked and landed my first permit. I will never forget that fish and the thrill of the fight .For the rest of the morning we had numerous shots at permit. Steve was absolutely the finest guide I have ever fishshed with. He not only put us on fish, but was a real gentleman and so patient with my wife.On the way back to the marina Steve saw some porpoising tarpon in the river and pulled over to let my wife cast to them. She hooked and landed 3 fish with the biggest about 35lbs. What a thrill that we will never forget. Thanks South Water Adventures and Steve Cabral for an unforgetable day. We absolutely would recommend them to anyone with any skill level

Medz and Jeff were our guides. They picked us up at the dock near our resort. We traveled out to some of the small Cayes to net bait fish and then fished some great spots. After catching fish, we went snorkeling around some of the coral reefs. They took us to Bread & Butter Caye for a tasty lunch. A great experience overall.

We spent an entire week in Hopkins being well taken care of by the guys at South Water Adventures. We are not fishing experts so they made sure to tailor the trips to suit us. We chose the Cook Your Catch trip and had a great lunch of Barracuda and snapper on a beautiful island. They know all the best places to eat and visit in Belize and are always happy to help out with suggestions. If you chose South Water Adventures, you will be in good hands.

The team at South Water adventures put together an unforgettable week. The food was fantastic(we are in the restaurant biz), the service was the best of Belize, and the permit fishing, was permit fishing. The guides did an amazing job each and every day in the boat. We saw our fair share of tails, got our fair share of ”shots” and screwed most of them up 😜. Some of our guys had never fished in the salt, but had many opportunities and amazing experiences on the bow that week. We started talking about next year, after day two. We highly recommend this to anyone looking to chase permit, eat well, relax and enjoy the magic of Belize Thank you to all involved, see you next year!
