Wippari Cay is home to fishing legend Julian Cabral, owner of The Whipray Caye Lodge open-air Sea Urchin Bar and Restaurant. As well as sampling some of the exquisite Belizean and American food on offer, grab yourself an ice-cold beer and listen as Julian gives you the inside track on how best to catch our scaley friends down below.
Just a short boat ride away you’ll find some of the best fishing Belize has to offer. Land the catch of the day as you fish for tarpon, snapper and barracuda. These waters are ready stocked and waiting. If you fancy staying closer to shore, the sparkling waters to the northeast and northwest around Wippari provides for some superb snorkeling amongst its living coral reef. If you’re lucky you may get to see a pod of dolphins passing by. Back on the Cay, take a few moments to admire the lush greenery of the palm fringed beach as you sit back, cocktail in one hand, camera in the other, and wait for one of the most stunning and unforgettable sunsets you’ll ever see. Mooring overnight at Wippari puts you in a great position for a sail to South Water Cay the next morning.
