Nautica Celestial

Explore the plentiful waters around Boca Chica with Nautica Celestial and discover what Dominican Republic fishing has to offer! Captain Omar Mena has spent most of his life fishing in these parts, and before he became a captain, he was a passionate local angler. This means he has the expertise needed to put you on the fish.

Inshore fishing is the name of the game, which is great news for anyone coming with kids – you don’t have to travel far to have a blast. You could go up to 10 miles from the shore to target Seabream, Amberjack, and Barracuda using life bait and jigging to get your prey’s attention. Capt. Omar will provide quality Shimano rods and reels for you to use.

Your ride to the most productive spots is a 26’ Mercedes cruiser, spacious enough to hold up to 6 people. Thanks to its 250 HP Mercury engine, the boat is very fast on the waves and can take you where you need to be in no time. And not only is the boat fast, but it is very comfortable too.

With an onboard toilet and kitchen with plenty of seating room, the vessel is well-suited for full day trips. If you hook something big, you’ll have a fighting chair to help you reel in your catch, and outriggers will help you cover more water. The first mate will be at your disposal at all times, and you’re welcome to tip him if you’re happy with his service.

Capt. Omar welcomes kids on his boat, just as long as they’re 10 and older so that they can enjoy themselves on board. There will be life jackets for everyone. Because you’re booking an all-inclusive experience, you don’t need to buy or bring anything, and the captain will be in charge of food, drinks, boat, and expert advice.

Nautica Celestial is ready to take you fishing, are you?
