The biggest advantage at The Villages is that your boat meets you just a few steps from your bungalow.
Anglers will be transported to the fishing in versatile South Pacific style, sea-worthy skiffs to the many productive bonefish flats and to the reef drop-offs for exciting light tackle GT’s (giant trevally) tunas, wahoo and sailfish. We have all but eliminated the use of trucks so that anglers are able to maximize their valuable fishing time. Road transport is still used when the tides are right for fishing the outside flats like the Korean Wreck. All of the guides are experienced and knowledgeable in all types of fishing. The senior guides have been fishing the island all of their life and they work with the younger guides to guarantee an excellent fishing program. We are very proud of our guide team.
