Castrellon Charters

It’s time to head to Panama and book a trip with Castrellon Charters today! Captain José Gregorio Castrellon himself will ensure you and your group have a fantastic day of fishing with him. He is a local with decades of fishing experience, with a dedicated team of captains who know this area intimately. They love having families on board and showing the next generation how to fish.

The day will be spent on a 34’ motor yacht. There is room enough for all 6 anglers to fish at the same time without crossing lines. The twin 250 HP Suzuki engines will get you to the fishing grounds before you know it. The deck is shaded and has seating available, great for kids and the elderly.

You’ll be fishing close to shore, making this great for people who haven’t fished before. If you suffer from seasickness, remember to take your medication the night before the trip.

You’ll be fishing for Mahi Mahi, Yellowfin Tuna, Roosterfish, Wahoo, and more. The fish that you catch can be filleted by the captain after the trip and is included in the price of the trip.

Included in the price are top quality custom built rods and reels. These won’t let you down when reeling in your trophy catch. The fishing license for the whole group is also provided.

You’ll need to bring along food and drink. On the overnight trip, the captain can provide you with meals for an additional cost if you preorder in advance. The overnight trip gives you the opportunity to sleep aboard the boat and fish to your heart’s content. Or why not spend time swimming and snorkeling? The choice is yours.
