Doña Nina Fishing Tours 50 Bertran

These waters are known for Blue Marlin, Great Barracuda, Mahi Mahi, Black Marlin, White Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, Blackfin Tuna, and more – with any luck, you’ll hook into a few! Any fish within the legal limit is yours to keep. Plus, you can have your catch cleaned. Now that’s dinner!

During the trip, expect to go deep sea fishing. Whether you’re a beginner or a pro, they’ll take you to the best spots and provide you with everything you need to enjoy a fishing day on the water. Get ready to breathe the fresh ocean air and reel in some fun and some fish.

Kids are welcome, so the whole family can come and unplug for the day! Children must wear life vests, so find out if the appropriate size is available on board. It’s never a bad idea to bring sunscreen (non-spray), a hat, bottled water, and sunglasses. Your captain will have snacks, water, beer, soft drinks, and fruit on board.

You’ll be casting lines from a 48’ Bertram with a capacity for 7 passengers. It has a fighting chair and all the essentials no fishing machine can run without. There’s a toilet on board for your convenience. Your captain will provide rods and reels, along with lures.

The charter boat covers your fishing license, just show up ready for a good time! Some fish have special regulations, including when you can keep them. Your captain will help you follow regulations while you fish. Pick-up from your hotel is included. Message the captain for details.
