Dulce Coco Fishing - La Romana

When you’re ready to come face to gills with the most prized fish in the ocean, turn to Dulce Coco Fishing for an escapade of a lifetime! You will have a skilled captain and friendly crew on board to put you on the red-hot bite and help you while you’re reeling in the big boys. This charter company provides amazing fishing experiences and it is up to you to test it out.

Marina Casa de Campo is where you will go to meet Captain Paco Vela and come aboard his fast and reliable boat that will take you to the most productive fishing grounds. Your ride and fishing platform is a 42’ Bertram specially designed for offshore sportfishing.

She’s powered by twin 550 HP Detroit engines and can cut through waves like a hot knife through butter. The vessel can accommodate up to 6 persons that have more than enough room to cast their line and wait for something epic to come along.

She’s decked out with top-range fish finding gear, and anything you could possibly need on a fishing expedition, you’ll find on the boat, from outriggers to professional fighting chairs. The best available sportfishing equipment is ready for you, including rods, reels, and tackle, as well as fly fishing gear, if you’re an avid flyrodder.

With Capt. Paco, there are no delays, you will be going after the pelagic superstars that don’t give in easily and require a significant amount of skill and strength to pull it in. Sailfish, Blue and White Marlin, and Swordfish are the most wanted catch. These Billfish quests are reserved for longer trips that will take you further offshore. If you’d prefer something tamer, then shorter trips will award you with Snapper, Grouper, Mahi Mahi, and Sharks, just to name drop a few.

When you’re coming on a trip with Dulce Coco Fishing, all you have to do is show up and have an awesome time, your captain will provide fishing licenses, snacks, drinks, and food to keep you energized. Hop aboard for fishing like you’ve never experienced it before!
