Eric Tours

Fishing in exotic destinations is a dream come true of many passionate anglers, and if you’re looking for your next bucket list spot, Dominican Republic might just be the right choice! Eric Tours and Captain Richard Schut offer exciting fishing trips around this gorgeous island, and he’s got well over a decade of experience in the local waters.

Capt. Richard has been guiding angling expeditions for well over a decade, and he’s an expert in getting people on the hottest bite around. Your fishing platform will be a beautiful 52’ Cruiser, rigged with two 860 HP Detroit engines, prepped and ready to take out up to 8 people to a fishing trip to remember.

The boat is spacious, with all the facilities you could possibly need while you’re on board. There are 2 private toilets, an air-conditioned cabin to relax in, and even 3 sleeping areas in case you need a nap after fighting all that fish.

The bountiful waters of the Atlantic Ocean in this part of the world are rich in offshore royalty like Blue Marlin and Sailfish, and chasing them is a thrill in itself. Acrobatic Mahi Mahi, delicious Yellowfin Tuna and Red Snapper, Barracuda, and Wahoo are also on the to-catch list. All these fish are amazing fighters and won’t make it easy for you to reel them, which makes the experience all the more fun.

The trips are all-inclusive, so drinks, snacks, and lunch are included in the price, as well as the use of quality rods, reels, and tackle. At the end of the trip, the crew will clean and fillet the catch for you, to make it easier for you to turn it into a delicious meal as soon as you come home.

Eric Tours specializes in all kinds of activities on the island of the Dominican Republic, and fishing is their strong suit. Bring your kids (12 years and older), and hop aboard for a great time on the water!
