Hosted Permit Fishing Trip with Fin & Fire
Caribbean Super Grand Slam Trip
March, 2018 – 8 nights/7days
$3,950 (everything is included minus the shuttle)
One of the finest locales in the world of saltwater fishing to throw a fly at a super-slam at almost any time of the year. We cannot guarantee you will hook a bonefish, permit, tarpon, and snook every day on the water, but these fish are here year-round. You can stalk bonefish in skinnny water, head into the backcountry mangrove lagoons for baby tarpon and snook, or hunt for the elusive permit on the flats and the deeper waters that surround the flats.
The guides will pole classic 23-foot Mexican style panga boats, scanning for fish. Once located – if the water is shallow enough – slip out of the boat with the guide to stalk the fish on foot. This allows anglers to get much closer to the fish without spooking everything, and often-times results in numerous shots to the same fish.
Lodging and Accommodations
Four double occupancy cabins flanking the two story main lodge
The entire structure overlooks an oceanside turtle grass flat. Each cabin has a private bathroom, plenty of shelving and storage for your gear and clothing, two full-sized beds, screened windows, reading lights, a ceiling fan, air conditioning units, and a small deck with a hammock. You will find the open-air bar and dining area a perfect social setting for meals and post-fishing beverages. The lodge deck also has two sitting areas for appetizers and meals. The landscaped grounds consist of white sand and indigenous trees that provide a nice aesthetic reminder of the natural beauty of the Yucatan peninsula. The lodge offers Wi-Fi and a computer for guests. Some U.S. cell phones may work north of Tulum (Cancun and Playa del Carmen) but once you enter the Biosphere, cell service is very spotty.
All meals are prepared by local chefs in a new, professional grade kitchen. You will find dinners to be a blend of authentic Mayan, Caribbean, and American cuisine. Breakfast choices include fresh fruit, eggs, meats, and pancakes, with the lodge’s traditional Huevos Rancheros the specialty of the house. Your cooler fishing lunch is typically packed with sandwiches, fruit, cookies, crackers and cold beverages. All meals may be customized to your specific dietary needs and requests. The small bar is well-stocked with a variety of liquors, wines, sodas, mixers, ice cold local beers.
