Panama Bay Tours 25'

Crystal clear waters and desert islands are the perfect recipe for a great day of fishing. Leave the bustling city behind and discover the Panama Bay and its pristine water with Panama Bay Tours & Fishing. Let Captain Diego Bazan and his experienced team show you the beautiful nature and incredible fishing on offer in these Pacific waters.

Step aboard the traditional 25’ Panga saltwater fishing boat. Long and narrow, she has space for up to 8 guests. Capt. Diego prefers to keep the number of guests down to 4, but you can always pay extra to fill the boat with your friends and family. Built for these waters, she’ll comfortably keep you afloat on the bays and far offshore, while a shade runs the length of the boat to protect you from the sun.

Head out early and discover the Taboga and Taboguilla Islands as you head up to 12 miles offshore in search of some remote oases. You’ll whizz out at speeds of up to 30 knots, thanks to the 115 HP Suzuki four stroke engine, before hitting the sweet spots. Marvel at the stunning nature around you before getting your fish on against some stunning sea creatures.

While hitting the wrecks and reefs nearer the islands, you’ll have the chance to bottom fish for some local, exotic beasts. Go after Jack Crevalle and Barracuda for a thrilling experience, or target Mahi Mahi, Tuna, and Snappers to land something delicious to take back to shore.

During your trip, you’ll be given plenty of water to stay hydrated, and you’ll have full use of the onboard cooler. Bring your own drinks and snacks to make the most of your time aboard. The captain and his first mate will do everything possible to make you feel at home, so if there’s anything you want, feel free to ask. All that’s left to do is hop aboard and let Panama Bay Tours & Fishing show you this little slice of paradise.

Capt. Diego started Panama Bay Tours & Fishing as a sightseeing company, showing customers the delights of Panama's Pacific coast and numerous islands. After receiving heavy interest from fishermen, he noticed a gap in the market for fishing trips and, by now, over 98% of his customers come to fish. An innovative character, he always tries to keep up with the evolving market and, along with his uncle who captains too, runs 4 boats with Panama Bay Tours & Fishing.
