We Share Your Passion


Take Your Travel Experience Further: The Hosted Trip Difference Unparalleled Service and Knowledge Every Step of the Way Dear Traveler, It would be hard to find a premier saltwater destination that is easier to access than Turneffe Flats Lodge. Guests arrive in Belize City and are transferred to the Radisson Hotel to enjoy a drink and

light lunch until the weekly transfer boat, a 48-foot Sportfisher, leaves the dock. Once at the lodge

guests settle into very modern cabanas and fishing starts the next day. And if you can’t wait, there is a

wadeable flat out front where you can wet a line and work out the kinks. TFL is a dream come true with

lots of angling opportunities for bonefish, permit, tarpon, snook, etc., but also a variety of activities for the non-anglers.

Bonefish and permit are the primary targets at Turneffe Flats with expansive flats for wading and

plenty of opportunities for larger bonefish. Permit may be found on the flats and bars throughout the

atoll and anglers wade or fish from a skiff. Tarpon inhabit the creeks, channels and lagoons of the atoll

and come in all sizes. Anglers enjoy fishing from comfortable 16-foot Dolphin Superskiffs custom built in the US.

Non-anglers can enjoy snorkeling, diving, kayaking, or reading and relaxing at the infinity pool and

lounging deck. Or perhaps they can take a Belizean cooking class with one of the cooks in the kitchen, do an introduction to diving course, or enjoy listening to Head Atoll Adventure Guide, Abel Coe, a

Kekchi Mayan, explain the history of the Mayan in Belize. On Wednesdays, guests can arrange to visit a Mayan site or the Belize Zoo. There is lots to do!

Craig and Karen Hayes started TFL more than three decades ago, and no one knows this atoll and

the saltwater lodge business better than these two remarkable people. It’s not only being exceptional lodge owners that sets them apart from most, but also their stewardship and love for the island. They are instrumental in promoting the sustainable use of Turneffe Atoll and coastal marine environments,

working hard to establish the Turneffe Atoll Trust to ensure environmental laws of Belize are enforced; working together the commercial fishermen and ecotourism can preserve this ecosystem for future generations.

We are excited to be hosting a week at TFL, and we hope you can join us.

Sincerely,

Barry & Cathy Beck

About the Lodge

Turneffe Flats Lodge: For more than 3 decades, Turneffe Flats has been known as one of the world’s top flats fishing and diving resorts. Turneffe Flats is 25 miles east of the mainland of Belize, ideally located to enjoy Turneffe’s 250 square miles of flats, coral reefs and rich marine life. In addition to the fishing program, guests can enjoy a myriad of other activities such as SCUBA diving, snorkeling and the popular Atoll Adventure program.
