Sail away from the idyllic white sandy shores of Puerto Plata aboard Buscapie Charters’ ‘My Fathers’, a well-equipped 29’ Luhrs. As you drive out to the fishing grounds you can admire the tropical coastline slowly shrink behind you as you stand on the boat’s flybridge, or enjoy the large deck space available on board.
Perhaps what makes Buscapie charters stand out from the competition is the captain’s attention to detail. Fishing is everything to him, meaning everything on board must be clean and in the very best working order. If something doesn’t work, it doesn’t come on the boat. High quality navigational electronics including a Furuno radar will help you target fish, and a live bait tank will keep your bait fresh. This powerful boat has two 315HP Yanmar engines, which give it a cruising speed of around 26 knots.
Buscapie charters tend to troll with 8 lines, believing this to be the optimum number to allow everyone to have a go without it getting too crowded. They tend to target Blue and White Marlins, Sailfish, Wahoo and Mahi-mahi, depending on the season and the conditions. The captain pays great attention to the tide tables and wind in order to get you to the best possible fishing spot.
Born in Italy, capt. Mattia first came to the Dominican Republic aged 11. He caught his first fish at 8 years old and hasn’t looked back since. As he grew up his life revolved around his family’s commercial fishing vessel, which he worked on during the day, studying for high school during the night.
This gave him the experience and knowledge of the area to run Buscapie Fishing Tours, a family business that has a passion for fishing and love for the sea at the core of its values. Even after so many years, he still gets excited about the opportunity to go out to sea and fish, an attitude that his customers find infectious.
