Big Marlin Charters – Gone Dog 37'

The Dominican Republic’s Punta Cana is home to some seriously fish-filled waters. Why not come explore them alongside a local Dominican captain, on board a luxurious vessel? That’s exactly what you’ll get with Big Marlin Charters. This crew can’t wait to take you on the deep sea fishing adventure of your dreams!

Exploring these beautiful waters for world-famous, hard-fighting big game fish is a spectacular event, so it only makes sense that you should cast off from a spectacular vessel. On board “Gone Dog,” a 37’ Riviera boat, you’ll find everything you need for the perfect day on the water.

This vessel has room for up to 6 guests to cast their lines in luxury and is decked out with GPS, fishfinder, outriggers and a fighting chair to help bring in those blue water beasts. She also boasts a huge flybridge with leather couches, as well as a shower and toilet. The stern has lots of room and is conveniently shaded by a wide bimini, and the bow is an ideal spot for relaxing.

Punta Cana’s waters are full of some incredible fish, and you’ll have the chance to do battle with some famous names even on shorter trips. You’ll come fact-to-gills with prized species such as Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Sailfish, Wahoo, and King Mackerel. Even better? You can combine your fishing trip with snorkeling or swimming in these waters, too.

You’ll be armed with carefully-selected Penn rods, Penn reels and Rapala tackle, including top-of-the-line powerful Penn International reels, which can drag out trophy catches including Blue Marlin, White Marlin, Sailfish, Yellowfin Tuna, and Mahi Mahi.

It doesn’t stop there, either – on board, you’ll be served cold drinks including rum, coke, water, and beer, and lunch is provided on longer trips. You’ll be escorted to and from your hotel in a private van, and will be provided with a fishing license.

All that’s left is to cast off with Big Marlin Charters – they can’t wait to welcome you on board for the experience of a lifetime!
