Still need some inspiration for a summer holiday? Many of our saltwater destinations offer summer discount rates and packages for those of you hoping to break out the 8 weight and hit the flats in the coming months!
“Summer? Isn’t it hot?”
The answer is definitely yes, but when this same question is posed to many of the guides in the regions described below, you’ll find them to respond similarly. With one of the only negatives being that often times temperatures are 3–4 degrees hotter than the spring, for the most part the positives of the summer season greatly outweigh the negatives. Bookings in the Caribbean from June – September can often enjoy the following benefits:
- With many anglers choosing to avoid the summer heat or simply being too busy to get away in the summer, the availability at most operations is very good.
- Consistently warm conditions, tropical rains and a decrease in angling pressure keep fish very happy.
- The most experienced guides that normally are booked or requested well in advance are often available in the summer.
- Summer bookings avoid any possibility of a cold front that may affect fishing.
- Discounted rates!
The following list represents the top 5 discount saltwater trips for this summer season. Each destination provides shots at various species of saltwater fish while you are immersed in paradise. What they all have in common is organized, professional operations and truly unique saltwater experiences that will create memories that last a lifetime.
