Local Bilingual Guide

Drinks, Snacks, and Meals (Full day) provided

Full days are 9 hours and can be fished inshore and/or offshore. A must in order to go after the marlin and sailfish. We run anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, then we start trolling. If catching dinner is important, there is plenty of time for that. We return at 4:30 pm.
On the 5 hour half day trip we stay inshore and look for any kind of action. We fish submerged rock formations for grouper, snapper, amberjack. There is also lots of surface action with jacks, mackerels, dorado, maybe wahoo and tuna: keeping everyone busy and catching fish for dinner.
For those who prefer to go offshore, but don’t want to be on the water for 9 hours, a 7 hour 3/4 day trip is a great option. There is opportunity to combine a quick pass offshore with time to catch your dinner.
You can keep your fish! **There is a strict catch and relase policy on billfish**
