About the Captain

Nelson Herrera
Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic
Member since December 2013
I grew up fishing in the Caribbean waters. I am a third generation fishermen, who grew up fishing with his dad and siblings at an early age. I have won many prestigious Billfish tournaments held in Ocean World, Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic. Because of my curiosity for fishing at an early age, I asked many questions in the fishing docks to experienced fishermen who provided me with pointers and teaching methods. It was my passion for fishing that brought me to become a captain

Captain Nelson and crew (Jose) are the best!
I wish I could rate higher than 5 stars.
Nelson and Jose are very professional, knowledgeable, experienced and prepared for our adventure.
After comparing prices , the Hi Z’s fishing tour is the best value I found.
This was my first experience deep sea fishing and one of the best memories of my life.
It took Captain Nelson just minutes to find.. and me over an hour to reel in an 80lb White Marlin.
This is by far the biggest fish I have ever caught.
My next trip to the Dominican Republic will definitely include a fishing trip with Captain Nelson.
Nelson shared his knowledge, not only as a fishing guide but as a Dominican historian as well.

We hope to have another adventure soon with our new friend Captain Nelson.

My son caught an 80 pound marlin and we caught 5 mahi.  Captain Nelson knew where to find the fish and our first mate knew how to hook em.  We had a riot fishing in very heavy waves.  Had one double during the marlin fight and had no trouble landing both fish.  Captain Nelson sang to us on the entire trip.  It was truly an awesome fishing experience to remember.  I would recommend this trip to anyone except kids and women.  The waves would have made it difficult for most women and kids to handle.

Maybe not captain nelsons fault. Maybe just another example of fishing not catching. This was my second booking for a deep sea fishing trip, and the results were the same. Felt like all I got was a boat ride
