This 1.3 million-acre estuary is teeming with fish, birds and other wildlife. Commercial fishing has been prohibited for decades, and catch-and-release is the reserve rule, so the fish naturally populate without human intrusion.
The bay features miles and miles of shallow flats, a perfect breeding ground for crabs, the cherished delicacy of permit, and the reason permit grow here to world-record size. The bonefish are plentiful, so your opportunities for landing these fierce fighters are numerous.

You’ll find rolling tarpon in the lagoons, making this one of the few places in the world where a Grand Slam is possible. Hook a snook in the same day for a Super Slam.
