Fishery: Considered one of the world’s premier bonefish destinations for its abundance of fish, diversity of wading opportunities and magnificent scenery. The average bonefish range from 3-4 pounds with some real good shots at 5+ pounders and a 10+ pound fish not outside the realm of possibility.

Accomodations: Tasteful single and double occupancy rooms with air conditioner and private bath.
