Grand Caribe’s 5th Annual Deep Sea Classic Fishing Tournament

by Louise Roe

Calling all fishing anglers! Grand Caribe’s 5th Annual Deep Sea Classic Fishing Tournament will be taking place as of this month. Mark your calendars for July 16th – 18th for one of the most exciting tournaments yet! The Deep Sea Classic Fishing Tournament will be held at Grand Caribe in Ambergris Caye. You could not ask for a more picturesque location with the Belize Barrier Reef only a short distance away, with the deep blue just beyond for a wealth of pelagic sport fish. With Belize boasting the second barrier reef largest in the world and great weather year-round, it’s no surprise avid anglers flock to try their luck out at sea. This year, there is over BZD$20,000 in cash and prizes up for grabs—if luck smiles on you.

Schedule of Events

The Deep Sea Classic is a fun-filled weekend with events starting from Friday until Sunday. On Thursday, July 15th, a virtual tournament briefing will be held.

On Friday, July 16th, the Bimini start will be at 6:00 AM from the Grand Caribe dock with lines out the water at 6:00 PM. For the 17th, fishing will also be from 6:00 AM – 6:00 PM. On the last day, Sunday, July 18th, there will be a prize-giving ceremony for winners. Having a great time at sea and catching an array of fish is a top highlight during this fun-filled weekend.

In 2020, world-renowned marine artist and conservationist Carey Chen auctioned an original piece at the Captain’s Dinner; a total of $5,800 (net proceeds) was donated to Hope Haven Children’s Home, courtesy of Caribena Enterprises and Carey Chen Art. This year, Chen’s art is expected to be on the official tournament gear, and another original art piece is expected to be auctioned.
