A private island experience offering a relaxed atmosphere and attentive staff combined with an elite team of guides. Thatch Caye is located in southern Belize off the coast of Dangriga in the heart of the South Water Caye Marine Reserve. Catering to anglers and non-anglers alike, Thatch Caye and the Blue Horizon guide team provide world-class flats fishing right from your door in addition to a wide variety of non-angling activities offered daily. For anglers, Thatch Caye offers a great opportunity to target permit throughout the endless flats of the South Water Caye Marine Reserve. The island’s ideal location offers direct access to a large number of our black sickle-tailed friends in addition to some opportunities for bonefish and tarpon however, the primary focus of the guides and fishery is permit. Thatch Caye offers comfortable island accommodations, great service, a laid-back attitude, and the opportunity to fish with a senior guide staff created by Lincoln Westby.

Lodging Details
Thatch Caye offers three different types of accommodations with over the water bungalows, an over the water villa, and island cabanas. All accommodations are comfortable, well-appointed, and provide great views while welcoming the ocean breeze. Here at Yellow Dog, our personal favorite are the over the water bungalows. There is something about falling asleep and waking up to the sound of water and enjoying the 180-degree views provided by these accommodations. It is not uncommon to look out and see a school of bonefish or even a tailing permit on the Indy Beach flat. All accommodations are fully air-conditioned with a private patio or roof deck, as well as hammocks for relaxing with a cold Belikin or catching up after a long day on the water.

Food and Beverages
All meals are included in your package and prepared by great local chefs during your stay at Thatch Caye. Thatch Caye uses the freshest possible ingredients and strives to provide an authentic Belizean culinary experience. From freshly cooked fish to wonderfully done pork, you will enjoy every meal prepared by the wonderful kitchen staff. If you have any dietary restrictions or preferences, do not worry, Thatch Caye is 100% committed to providing alternatives for those with allergies or other food preferences.

Breakfast is served in the Coco Lounge from 7:00 – 8:30 AM each morning. If you are heading out on the water they are happy to pack a breakfast to go. This allows you to take full advantage of fishing light and tides.

Lunch is served in the Grove from 12:30 – 1:30 PM each day. If you are on the water you have the option of coming in for lunch or having lunch packed so that you may stay out on the water throughout the entire day.

Dinner is served in the Grove family-style (weather permitting) each evening starting at 7:00 PM. The Grove is a wonderful venue to enjoy the ocean breeze, and family-style meals under the sun and stars.

Thatch Caye has two bars on the island, the Coco Lounge which is located in the main lodge and open until 10:00 PM daily and the main Starfish bar which is located over the water and is open from 1:00 PM until close (generally 10 PM). Cocktail hour takes place each evening at the Starfish Bar starting at 6:00 PM.

Typical Length of Stay
Since there are daily flights between Belize City and Dangriga, packages of any length can be arranged. Trips can start and end on any day of the week. We recommend a minimum stay of three (3) nights and two (2) full days when traveling to Thatch Caye.

Non-Angling Activities and Options
There are a variety of non-angling opportunities offered at Thatch Caye. The non-angling activities include but aren’t limited to scuba diving, snorkeling, and more. Thatch Caye caters just as well to the non-angler as it does to anglers. It is a great choice for families or groups with a variety of interests.
