A documentary about the rapidly changing coast of Belize and the people who cherish it most. Belize is exploding with new economic life as tourists flock to its coast. Yet as developers rush to keep up with demand, they're destroying the very thing that brings in the tourists and their money; the sea and all its many creatures. Perhaps nobody is experiencing these changes more intimately than Abbie Marin and Lincoln Westby; fly fishing guides who spend their days out on the flats chasing the elusive Permit. Award-winning filmmaker Bradley Beesley follows Abbie and Lincoln as they navigate the tension between the country's commitments to protecting its natural resources versus protecting its human resources. Will condos, golf carts and foreign money force the soul of a country that lives and dies by the water into submission? Time will tell.

Greg Norman on Caye Chapel, November 2015

2nd photo: It was a pleasure to meet the First Lady of Belize Kim Simplis Barrow on Caye Chapel in Belize. On the 2nd longest reef system in the world.

Caye Chapel is a small, privately owned island in Belize, 16 miles (26 km) north-northeast of Belize City and 3 miles (4.8 km) south of Caye Caulker. It was once owned by Isaiah Emmanuel Morter, Belize's first black millionaire.

Knight Commander of the Distinguished Service Order of Ethiopia, Isaiah Emmanuel Morter was born in Belize (formerly British Honduras) Central America/Caribbean. He was a member and staunch supporter of the Universal Negro Improvement Association U.N.I.A. SiIr Isaiah Morter was the first great benefactor of the cause of African Redemption. He made the largest single monetary donation to the U.N.I.A and also bequeathed land in Belize to the U.N.I.A. that was seized by the British Crown. For example Caye Chapel was given to the U.N.I.A.

In comparison to other typically rural cayes and islands in the vicinity, it features an airstrip, 18 hole golf course, 25,000-square-foot (2,300 m2) clubhouse and conference facilities. The golf course was designed by Patrick Horvat from Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada. His company, Tee Time International Inc along with the island's owner built the course over two winters, nine holes each time.

It is possible to snorkel and fish around the island.
