Family Fishing at Tropic Star Lodge

​​​The Tropic Star Kids Club program has been providing family fishing adventures for hundreds of families for more than 10 years. Tropic Star Lodge has always known the importance of encouraging kids to get out of the house and fish with their parents, siblings, grandparents and friends. Fishing provides a great generational bond between families who participate in outdoor activities together. Fishing teaches kids to respect nature, science and conservation. And, fishing provides physical and mental activities important to a healthy lifestyle.

Tropic Star Lodge offers a “Kids Club” program to anglers under 16 years old where kids fish free when joined by 1-full fare adult. Now in its 10th year; the Tropic Star Kids Club program has been providing family fishing adventures for hundreds of families.

Tropic Star’s CEO, Ursula Marais,  champions the importance of teaching kids to fish. “Tropic Star knows that fishing is an important tradition for many families and we want to provide the best fishing experience for our guests. Landing a marlin roosterfish or sailfish is a dream to many adults– imagine the impression it makes on kids.” Marais continues,  “Our hope is to get kids hooked on fishing for life. We want to help prepare the next generation of fisherman with the skills, ethics and passion for the sport.”

Introducing kids to fishing is a great way for families to ensure a shared hobby for a lifetime. At Tropic Star Lodge families get the chance to unplug from technology, spend time outside, in nature and fish together out on the open water forming memories that will last forever. Seeing the smiles and pleasure these kids get from catching a big-game fish is what the sport is all about.
