We love fishing, and pro fisherman and Makaira owner Captain John will give you the best chance hook a big one. This gallery features some of our guests with big ones that didn’t get away.
Thanks to our coral reef gardening initiative we have a fantastic reef just offshore for you to explore with free use of our snorkel gear (and lots of other goodies) available in The Toy Shed.
Explore the Reef
No shortage of big fish around the reef to test your angling skills (or try your luck), so get your big hooks and big rods ready and set sail with Captain John.
More fishy business
At Makaira we are passionate about rebuilding and maintaining a healthy reef system with our ongoing coral gardening program, and many of our guests lend a hand too !

Some great new photos here showcasing our wonderful reef thriving thanks to our conservation and coral gardening efforts.
Creating small artificial reefs are a great way to help nature get a good start. These are 25 sq ft constructed by transplanting corals grown on the ropes to a concrete block anchor, rebar frame and ropes.
We grow our corals on ropes before transplanting to the artificial reef, or use coral fragments and plant them to grow in the wild. Here we see the coral ropes ready for harvest, our happy coral gardeners planting new fragments, and some images of the reef before planting, and now beginning to flourish.
