Bandida Charters - Chris Craft 36´

It’s never too late to book a trip with Bandida Charters and fish the beautiful waters of the Caribbean Sea the way they are meant to be fished. With their dynamic crew, you will be able to enjoy the productive waters and great angling opportunities they have to offer.

Check the bite in one of the most renowned sportfishing destinations in the Caribbean. Every month of the year has something to offer, from bottom and fly fishing to trolling and deep sea fishing.

The list of your potential catches includes Yellowtail, Amberjack, Mutton Snapper, and Strawberry Groupers that you will find while fishing the reefs. When heading offshore, you can expect to target Sailfish, White Marlin, and Mahi Mahi amongst the others. And finally, a trolling trip will see you battling Barracuda, Tuna, and Sailfish to name a few.

Your boat for the day will be a 36’ Chris Craft. This seaworthy vessel comes powered by twin Cummins engines with 370 HP each. It is fully outfitted with modern GPS, fishfinder, VHF radio, and radars. It features a restroom with a shower, kitchen and sleeping areas, an air-conditioned cabin, and a fighting chair aboard to test your angling skills. The only thing that’s missing is you!

The trips with Bandida Charters aboard their 36’ boat are all-inclusive; you will only need to bring your fly fishing gear if needed and something to eat on a shorter trip.
