Fishing -- The fishing is excellent out of Dangriga. Most folks head to the flats in search of bonefish, permit, and tarpon. Closer to shore and near the river mouths you can find snook, and beyond the barrier reef lie marlin, sailfish, tuna, wahoo, and dorado. Ask at your hotel, around the docks, or at the Pelican Beach Resort (tel. 522-2044). Expect to pay between BZ$800 and BZ$2,400 (US$400-US$1,200/£212-£636) per day for a full day for several anglers aboard a modern sport-fishing boat. Alternatively, you can line up a lower-tech outing around the docks for around BZ$100 to BZ$300 (US$50-US$150/£27-£80) for a half-day.

Snorkeling & Scuba Diving -- Dangriga is the jumping-off point for some wonderful small cayes situated right on the edge of the barrier reef, as well as Glover's Reef Atoll. Most of the hotels in town can arrange for a day trip of snorkeling or scuba diving at Tobacco Caye, South Water Caye, or one of the cayes comprising Glover's Reef Atoll. Expect to pay from BZ$160 to BZ$240 (US$80-US$120/£42-£64) per person for a full-day snorkel trip out to the reef, including lunch and transportation. Add on an extra BZ$120 to BZ$160 (US$60-US$80/£32-£42) if you plan to scuba dive.
