Yate Fortuna

Experience some serious offshore fishing with Yate Fortuna. Leave the stunning bay of Cartagena and get out onto the Caribbean’s deepest waters hunting some highly-prized fish. Captain Camilo Diaz will show you an authentic experience. A recreational and sustenance fisherman since childhood, he bought his first boat at age 13. He knows all there is about these waters and looks forward to sharing his knowledge with you.

Capt. Camilo has come a long way since his boyhood. Step aboard his 43’ Hatteras convertible and live the life of luxury. Up to 10 guests are welcome aboard to enjoy comfortable confines in the air-conditioned cabin featuring a kitchen, bathroom, TV, and multimedia system. Head up to the flybridge to spot the productive fishing spots and use the outriggers to troll behind you. When you feel the bite, settle into the fighting chair and get your fish on.

You’ll use live ballyhoo as bait with heavy tackle giving you the best chance of landing a monster fish. Head up to 40 miles offshore to the deepest spots of the Caribbean and get ready for an intense battle. Majestic Marlin will leap out of the water as they wriggle from your line, while stunning Sailfish will leave you lost for words. Try to catch a delicious Tuna or Mahi Mahi to take back to shore, or battle it out with Wahoo, Amberjacks, and even Sharks!

Full day trips will give you the best chance of testing your skills against a range of these fish, but there’s still a good chance of landing a beauty on shorter trips. You’ll also be treated to a complimentary traditional lunch on longer trips. Whatever you want out of your day can be arranged – let your captain know if you’d like to go snorkeling and you can rent some gear. Step aboard and experience Colombian hospitality with Yate Fortuna.

About the Captain

Camilo Diaz
Cartagena, Colombia
Born and raised in Santa Marta, it was only natural that Captain Camilo would know all about fishing. Following in his father and grandfather's footsteps, he fished as a hobby and as a way to provide food for the family. He bought his first boat at age 13, and it wasn't until he was 34 that he turned his passion into a hobby. He still loves the freedom of getting out on the ocean and says there's no thrill like reeling in a monster fish. And he should know: his record is a 500 lb Marlin!
