Placencia's Finest Fishing Experience

We do believe that Capt. Dermin Shivers will change the way you consider fishing, adding fun, passion and lots of adrenaline! Our goal is to make it happen!


Our island and sports fishing adventures are all- encompassing. Step outside and explore something different - because that’s why you're here for and recharge those metaphorical batteries. If non- stop action is your idea of a perfect day, we’re more than happy to accommodate you with all sorts of activities.

Let’s go Deep Sea for the massive Wahoo’s, Marlin’s, Dorado’s or just switch it up a notch and go out for that Grand Slam on hundreds of square miles of exquisite fishing grounds ( better known as The Permit Capital of the World).


We also enjoy our family and group adventure tours. We snorkel at the world’s famous UNESCO, World Heritage Park Reefs. These include Laughing Bird Caye, the Silk Cayes ( also known as Queen’s Caye) and Mojo Caye - my favorite private island.


As our guest imagine snorkeling on top of the biggest barrier reef in the world, gazing down on many luminous tropical fish. Picture yourself dazzled, floating on crystal blue turquoise waters. Imagine yourself free diving for lobsters and conch ( if in season). Hook and let's cook them for a fresh island bbq at Mojo Caye.


Other adventures include Island Hopping before heading back to mainland. Either way being on the waters with Capt. Dermin and his crew will be an unforgettable experience. Bring your children, bring your friends, bring your students, bring your family, bring yourself! Our dynamic tour will be one to remember.

Memories For A Lifetime!!


been back to that beautiful country many times and contact Dermin EVERY SINGLE time. We wouldn’t use anyone else! This last trip was with 15 friends. Dermin took us out multiple times!! The lobster day and then to Moho Caye is my favorite. The lobster can’t get any fresher! My husband and a few others went fishing often. Dermin is experienced and knowledgeable. He just seems to KNOW where the fish are! He takes his job seriously but, he also makes it fun!! We always felt safe!! He has taken us snorkeling and to waterfalls, too. We are going again in a few weeks and have already booked multiple trips with Dermin. He and his wife, Vanessa have become very good friends!! Look him up if you are there! You won’t be disappointed. Top notch!!
