Each year, anglers from across the region anchor at Grand Caribe for a one-of-a-kind fishing experience. Known globally as a fisherman’s paradise, our Belizean waters are native to and array of fishes raging from dorado, wahoo to tuna, marlin and sailfish.

This not only makes for an enjoyable fishing expedition, but with this year’s fishing tournament, it can be an expedition that genuinely pays off. This year offering over $200,000 in cash, the biggest prize up to date! We are partnering with the Belize Tourism Board (BTB) and contributing $25,000 to start off the Calcutta.  Grand Caribe will also be donating 10% of the Calcutta towards scholarships for young tour/fishing guides, who aspire to obtain training and licenses.

First place gets a whopping $25,000.00 cash prize plus 60% of the Calcutta, and the top 3 boats will receive a signed and framed artwork by Carey Chen. Prizes are given through to fifth place as well as for heaviest dorado, heaviest wahoo, heaviest tuna, and top anglers in male, female, and junior categories—what a way to spend your vacation. You get to fish all weekend at great locations on the Caribbean Sea while also getting the chance to win incredible cash prizes. Talk about a holiday that pays for itself!
