Shekhinah Tours is currently unable to accept reservations on FishingBooker. But don't worry we've found some great alternatives for you nearby.

Shekhinah Tours is proud to offer a variety of trips with their local captain, Captain Jorge. He has nearly 2 decades of fishing experience and will do everything he can to make sure you have a great day out with him.

You’ll spend the day on a 25’ center console, which has plenty of shade to keep your group of 6 comfortable. There’s enough room to fish at either end of the boat, and a small bench to sit on that is perfect for any elderly anglers.

There’s something to catch all year round. Blue Marlin is great from October to December and again from April to June. The delicious Mahi Mahi can be caught year round but is best to fish for from October to April. For Snapper, head over from June to September. Inshore species you can target include King Mackerel, which can be caught all year round.

The half day trips are close to shore and are great for first-time anglers and kids. There is no minimum age for kids and life vests are provided. The offshore trip will take you an hour from land, so are better suited for those that know they won’t get seasick. If you wish to snorkel on your trip, talk to the captain before the day, and he’ll get all the necessary equipment ready for you.

You’ll want to bring a camera along, as well as plenty of sun protection and seasickness medication. If you decide to snorkel, don’t forget your towel! It’s best to wear light layers, as the temperature changes throughout the day. It’s always good to have some extra cash on you – it’s customary to tip the first mate after your trip.

Included in the price is the fishing equipment for the day and the live bait, which the captain will prepare for you before the trip begins. Your fishing license is also provided. There will be snacks and drinks on board during the half day trip, and a lunch and drinks on the full day trip.

Captain Jorge is looking forward to welcoming you on board. Fishing with Shekhinah Tours in Drake Bay will be an unforgettable part of your vacation.
