Agua Bendita

Cap Cana Marina
Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

The Agua Bendita team have almost 20 years of experience between them and know the local fishing grounds extremely well. They offer a range of customizable fishing packages, where you can choose exactly what you want to do with your day

Battle big game pelagics, deep drop for tasty bottom-dwellers, or fish the local waters for a few hours before anchoring at the beach to swim, snorkel, or just sunbathe and relax.

Agua Bendita is a 38’ custom sportfishing boat equipped with a bathroom, kitchen, comfortable cabin and spacious flybridge. The boat is also rigged with well-maintained fishing equipment and an assortment of marine electronics including GPS, fishfinder, and radio. The vessel can accommodate up to 6 passengers per trip.

The clear waters of Punta Cana are frequented by a variety of migratory game fish such as Blue and White Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and many others. For those that enjoy the thrill of hooking a shark, the bite for these is productive virtually all year round.

For seasoned, hardcore fisherman, the Agua team offers special deep drop fishing trips at depths of between 500 and 750 feet, fishing for Queen, Red, and Yellow Eye Snapper, as well as big Amberjacks and Grouper.

The boat comes fully decked with deep drop electric rods and reels, perfect for fishing these depths. They also offer reef trips for Grouper, Snapper, and Sharks between 180 to 300 feet deep. Deep drop and reef trips require at least six hours.

Please note that although clients are free to keep most of the fish they catch, a strict catch and release policy is implemented for all billfish.

We had five people in our group and went on the six hour charter.  Two of us have a little experience with deep sea fishing, the other three not so much.  The crew spoke a little English but it was a great benefit to have Spanish speakers with us.  This trip is best for those who have a good idea of what they’re doing because instruction was minimal.  They knew exactly where to go and trolling was awesome!  The sea turned a few of my friends green which was a bummer.  Nothing but great things to say about the crew, ship and fish!!
