Sunrise Charters Panama Punta Chame

Come aboard Sunrise Charters Panama for a family-run fishing adventure in the stunning waters of Punta Chama. Head out the crystal clear seas around the deserted Otoque Island, where you’ll be in awe of the nature, colors, and incredible fish.

Captain Jairo will use his more than 15 years of fishing experience to get you to the rich fishing grounds, while his wife, Constanza, and sons, Andres Felipe and Bernado will make sure you have everything you need for a productive day out.

“La Piragua” is a 24’ panga-style boat, offering you a traditional Latin American fishing experience. She was custom-built for fishing these waters, boasting a center console that provides plenty of space and sight for all sorts of fishing. She’s remarkably stable, keeping you afloat in all conditions, while the GPS system and fish finder will make sure you get on the fish.

Speaking of the fish, the rich waters offer up plenty. Within just 25 minutes from port, you’ll get your fish on around the stunning tropical island, targeting big, tasty fish like Mackerel, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Snapper, Jacks, and many more game fish. Test your angling skills as you cast away and bottom fish or let the trolling lines do the work.

The hard-working crew promise to make you feel a part of the family, so don’t hesitate to get in touch regarding anything you want. Snorkeling gear can be provided free of charge, while you can also rent some spearfishing equipment. With a cleaning and filleting service on offer for a limited number of fish, there’s nothing left for you to do but come aboard.

Grab some drinks and snacks to fill the onboard cooler, and up to 4 people can come aboard and settle in for a fishing experience like no other. Book your spot, invite your friends, and enjoy the ride with Sunrise Charters Panama!
