If you’re looking for crystal blue waters, clear skies, and a sunset to die for, you’re looking for the Dominican Republic. If you’re looking for a huge Blue Marlin thrashing around this serene scene, you’re looking for Lérika Fishing Tours.

Climb aboard their excellent Blackfin boat, a 29’ offshore sport fishing machine, capable of holding up to 7 anglers fishing in comfort. She’s been restored recently, in 2014, so you can expect all the modern amenities a serious fishing boat should have. She’s powered by twin Cummins engines, each producing 315 HP, propelling her across the sea at 35 knots - her maximum cruising speed.

Join Captain Marcel Brito as he trolls the pearlescent seas off the shore of Bayahibe. He’ll assist and instruct you to the highest degree, giving you every advantage you need in order to catch that dream fish. The species you will target are varied, big, and prestigious: Blue Marlin, White Marlin, Sailfish, Yellowfin Tuna, Barracuda, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Little Tunny, and anything else you run into. Outriggers are available on board for added trolling power.

If the client doesn’t want to keep his catch, the crew has 2nd pick. Certain areas have a strict catch and release policy. All Marlins are strictly catch and release only. The minimum age for children is 6. Capt. Marcel may not speak a lot of English, but he speaks the universal language of landing huge Marlin straight on his deck!
