Panama GEM Charters - 27’ Proline

Diablo
Panama City, Panamá

Panama GEM Charters takes you fishing around the iconic waterways aboard their speedy and reliable 27’ Proline. Whether it’s Pearl Islands Archipelago, 20 Fathom Trench, or Taboga Island, you can sample some of the finest game species here, including Mahi and Wahoo, and much more.

And, no matter how skilled you are, the crew will gladly accommodate you and help turn your fishing day into a lasting memory.

When you come onboard, you will find a selection of fishing gear, snacks, soft drinks, water, and beer. The crew will supply all the safety gear, tackle, lures, and bait. The boat can take up to 9 people who will have enough space to fish but also enjoy the view and the ride. The boat is equipped with twin 150 HP Yamaha engine, has GPS and a fishfinder, as well as a toilet, an ice box, and a multimedia system.

Anglers onboard can try trolling or bottom fishing and the crew will make sure you have a productive day. Just one look at the photos of the catch and you’ll see how big these Mahi can get. There are also big Tunas, tasty Snapper, and massive Amberjacks. The captain will advise what works the best according to the weather and what you want to catch.

Pack sunscreen, sunglasses, a hat, as well as a camera. You may want to bring some extra layers of clothing just in case.

Book your spot, invite your friends, and come for a blast!
