Sunrise Charters Panama

Sunrise Charters Panama promises to take you to the best fishing grounds Central America has to offer. From the Pearl Islands Archipelago to the 20 Fathom Trench, Taboga and Otoque Islands, and beyond to the deep, you’re in for a thrilling adventure on the crystal clear blue waters, going after monster fish.

The boat operates out of Panama City’s Diablo Marina where Captain Jairo and his family will welcome you aboard the beautiful 26’ Seaswirl Striper with open arms. The spacious vessel has room for up to 7 guests, with 4 people being able to fish at the same time. Take advantage of the wealth of drinks on offer, while the crew can even fire up the BBQ at a cost to make your holiday dreams come true.

Built with fishing in mind, the boat features the latest Garmin electronics, a fish finder, ice box, all safety equipment, a multimedia system, and a private toilet. Rest assured you’re in for a smooth and safe ride to sea, with all the gear to get you filling the boat.

Test your bottom fishing skills along the nearshore reefs and around the islands, or deep drop in the open oceans. Troll to entice the bite of monster fish, or even try snorkeling to experience the aquatic world from underneath the surface so nobody misses out!

Come aboard for as little as 4 hours or as much as 8, and discover the rich fishing grounds up to 60 miles offshore. Tasty bottom-dwellers like Snappers and Groupers will make for a delicious dinner, while Sailfish and Tuna make up the big game fishing prizes. Get ready for some serious action with plenty of rewards at the end of the day, as you go after the catch of a lifetime.

Before coming aboard, make sure to get in touch with the crew and they can arrange to pick you up in the nearby area for a minimal cost. At the end of the day, they’ll even clean and fillet a number of your fish for you to take back to shore.

Come aboard Sunrise Charters Panama in Panama City and embark on a fishing trip like never before!
