You’ll fish from Captain Fidel’s 28’ Embarcaciones Nava boat. This center console accommodates 4 guests on regular trips but only 2 on overnight trips. She’s been newly restored in 2019 and renewed their safety and navigational equipment. The boat is also powered by twin 225 HP Mercury engines, that save time when you’re heading out to your fishing spot.

These are the waters where you can catch lots of different big game fish, depending on your skills and the length of the trip. If you’ve always wanted to reel in a Marlin or a Sailfish – this is your chance! Other than that, there’s lots of Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Bonito, and Roosterfish in the area.

The captain will completely cover your fishing equipment. He always makes sure to start the trip on time because he catches live bait right before you arrive, in order to have it as fresh as possible for your main targets of the day. He also prepares snacks and drinks, so you really don’t have to think or prepare a lot in advance.

The crew can clean and fillet your catch after the trip and they appreciate the tips for this extra effort.

Fish with the captain who’s passionate about his job and feels like he’s on vacation every day. Capt. Fidel is a true local, proud of his heritage and experience. Turismo Náutico Columbas is waiting for your arrival!
