Tropic Star Lodge Experience

Join us for an unforgettable fishing expedition at Tropic Star Lodge led by Jessica Harvey! You’ll have the chance to fish in some of the most incredible waters in the world, and our team will be on hand to guide you every step of the way. With separate boats for guests and Jessica, you’ll rotate between them and have the opportunity to fish inshore, offshore or both.

During the expedition, you’ll have the chance to take part in a citizen science program to tag dolphinfish and contribute to ongoing research efforts. In addition to the fishing, we’ll also have games, presentations and dinners with Jessica and the GHF staff, giving you the opportunity to get to know our team and learn more about our conservation work. Plus, guests who catch their first billfish will walk the plank and receive a certificate, and the team with the most tagged dolphinfish will be awarded a Scallywag flag. Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity to fish with Jessica Harvey and experience the ultimate fishing adventure at Tropic Star Lodge!

Approximately one month after the trip, you’ll receive a summary video of the entire experience, allowing you to relive your incredible journey and share it with your friends and family. Book your adventure now and join us for the fishing adventure of a lifetime!
