Panama Pacific Expeditions

Ready for an offshore adventure in the Panama Bay? Team up with Panama Pacific Expeditions and Captain Emmanuel Lemma and head out to the well-known fishing grounds to land your biggest catch yet.

On trips with Capt. Emmanuel, you will be chasing the offshore A-listers of the area – Mahi Mahi, Barracuda, Cubera Snapper, Goliath Grouper, Jack Crevalle, Amberjack, and Yellowtail. For any fishing help, you can turn to your first mate, who has plenty of experience and will be with you every step of the way.

Capt. Emmanuel has spent most of his life fishing the local waters, and his expertise will allow you to have the best time on the water. You will hop aboard his 28’ center console with twin 50 HP Suzuki engines and enough room to accommodate up to 8 people.

On board, you’ll find trustworthy navigational electronics, as well as first-class rods, reels, and tackle for trolling and bottom fishing. If you’d like to cool off and take a break from fighting the fish, Capt. Emmanuel also has snorkeling equipment so you can take a dip and admire the marine life from up close.

Snacks and drinks are also included in the price, but if you’ve booked a full day trip, pack your lunch, as well as plenty of sunscreen, comfortable shoes, and clothes.

Your guide will take care of the fishing license for you, but make sure to bring your passport if you plan to make a stop at Taboga Island. The trip to the island is optional and it’s a great way to freshen up, have lunch, and enjoy the beautiful island.

Panama Pacific Expeditions has been running charters in the Panama Bay for years, they’re experts in making your reel scream, and they’re ready to take you fishing!

About the Captain

Emmanuel Lemma
Panama City, Panamá
I love the sea and fishing, and I caught my first fish when I was five years old. Running fishing trips and putting people on the fish is a lifestyle for me and I wouldn't change it for the world. My favorite fishing technique is spearfishing, but trolling and other styles are close to my heart as well. I always have the most fun on the water when showing people how to reel in their first catch.
