Fly Fishing

Destination & Details

Where do we go fishing?

Placencia is surrounded by untouched mangroves, amazing little islands and endless flats - Are you looking for the perfect location to catch PERMIT, BONEFISH and TARPON - maybe even in a Grand Slam? Clear Water Exploring brings you to the right spots. The exclusivity ofa maximum of four guests offers you the chance to arrange a trip who will meet your wishes.

You will be fishing the tides, loosing all senses of time and become one with the environment. Flexibility and adaptability to your needs and desires is our claim on every tour. We try to find the most suitable route for each group. The advantage of Clear Water Exploring is, that we can reach these distant and remote places with our yacht. We anchor there for a few days and explore the surrounding islands, flats and stunning waters.

The possibilities are limitless, starting from the great area just around Placencia, the uncountable flats in the north-east or the Sapodillas in the south.

Of course the weather always needs to be considered, but no worries our Hatteras is a strong and stormproof motor yacht with 900hp. If it gets too stormy, we stay in our marina on Placencia Caye and fish the surrounding places from here.

Discover placencia first

Depending on where you come from the journey might be quite long and exhausting. Europeans for example often have to struggle with a time difference of up to eight hours. So why not give yourself some time to arrive in peace? Placencia is the ideal place to do so.

Placencia, a true beach-holiday peninsula poking out from the mainland.  Perched at the southern tip of a long, narrow, sandy peninsula, the charming, low-key fishing village is bordered on one side by mangrove lagoons and just on the other side by the fantastic Caribbean sea. The colorful little town offers all you need to arrive - relax and get into the Caribbean feeling.

Along the popular 4,000-foot long “main street”, which is a pedestrian-only sidewalk, you find restaurants, bar's, artworks and so much more.

We can arrange a "Discover Placencia First" Package for you for the time being there. You can rent one of our Clear Water Exploring Golf Cars for a special guest fee to discover this great peninsula. 

Or you spend your first night at our home base - the Placencia Yacht Club
