Over 500 acres of the interior of Northern Caye are rich with mangroves and lagoons which provide lush nurseries for many species of fish, both for game fishing and for food chain fish. Tarpon, bonefish, and permit are plentiful, and juvenile jack, grouper, yellowtail, and other reef fish make this their tem-porary home here. The mangroves are nature’s preserve, while the deeper and wider expanses of open water could make a wonderful marina and / or hurricane hole for the necessary marine operations.
Passages through the luxuriant mangroves to the interior lagoons are circuitous and mystifyingly adventuresome.
There are 2 major lagoons spanning 150 to 250 acres each plus many small lagoons like these below.
The wider expanses of the two major lagoons are 6’ to 10’deep and perfect for a marina.
