Are you ready for a trip of a lifetime, with a charter specializing in deep sea fishing? Then join Santa Elena Charters today for an adventure you’ll never forget. When the fish start to bite you’ll get such a rush reeling them in.

Your captain for the day will be a local who has fished these waters his whole life. All the staff on the boat speak English and Spanish, meaning you’ll have no trouble communicating.

Step on board an American-built 42’ Mainship boat. This vessel can comfortably fit 7 anglers fishing at once. The twin 365 HP Yanmar engines will get you to the fishing grounds before you know it. The captain’s extensive knowledge of the area will do the rest, helping you land your next trophy-size catch!

The ride out to the fishing grounds will be in comfort – there are air conditioning and a multimedia system, as well as a restroom, kitchen, and beds. When the fishing starts, the flybridge and fighting chair will help you in spotting the fish and reeling them in respectively.

Deep sea trolling is the name of the game in Punta Cana! Depending on how far out you go, you’ll target Blue and White Marlin, Wahoo, Kingfish, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Barracuda, and Tuna. If it’s your first time deep sea fishing, the first mate will assist you and help you reel in catch properly. Upon request, the captain can make a stop in a beautiful private lagoon after your trip and prepare the catch of the day on the grill right on the boat side (this option is free).

Included in the price are top quality rods and reels. These won’t let you down when reeling in your dream catch. During each trip, you can use the free bar that’s filled with soft and alcoholic drinks, and on longer trips (6 and 8 hours), you’ll be provided with lunch.

Santa Elena Charters support team works 24/7 and will be assisting you from the first minute of your booking until the point you’re back in your hotel. Book with them and experience the best fishing trip you’ve ever had!
