Buscapie Charters - Fishing Time

Marina Cap Cana
Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

Drift away from the idyllic white sandy shores of Punta Cana aboard ‘Fishing Time’, a beautifully kitted out 32’ Albemarle. As you drive out to the fishing grounds you can relax in comfort inside the air conditioned cabin that is equipped with a TV and DVD player, in case you’re not interested in admiring the tropical coastline slowly shrink behind you.

Perhaps what makes the boat stand out the most is the captain’s attention to detail. Fishing is everything to him, meaning everything on board must be clean and in the very best working order. If something doesn’t work, it doesn’t come on the boat. High quality navigational electronics including a Garmin GPS will help you target fish, and the on-board fighting chair will help you tackle the big ones. Powered by two 300HP Caterpillar engines, the boat cruises at around 20 knots, getting you to the fishing grounds without delay.

Buscapie charters tend to troll with 8 lines, believing this to be the optimum number to allow everyone to have a go without it getting too crowded. They tend to target Blue and White Marlins, Sailfish, Wahoo and Mahi-mahi, depending on the season and the conditions.

Captain Mattia was born in Italy and first came to the Dominican Republic aged 11. He caught his first fish at 8 years old and hasn’t looked back since. While he was growing up in the Dominican Republic his life revolved around helping on his family’s commercial fishing vessel, working during the day and finishing high school during the night. This gave him the experience and knowledge of the area to run Buscapie Fishing Tours, a family business that has a passion for fishing and love for the sea at the core of its values. Even now, he is still excited about the opportunity to go out to sea and fish, an attitude that his customers find infectious.

About the Captain

Mattia Mastandrea
Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
Member since December 2015
I caught my first fish at the age of 8 years and from there the adventure begins... At 11 years old, my family moved to the Dominican Republic, so my passion for fishing continued in this country. At age 13, I was a professional fisherman, fishing in the day to sell the fish in the local market and studied at night... In 2011, we decided to share this passion with visitors. I have the joy of being able to turn my passion for fishing in my lifestyle and work.
