Mike’s Marina - 29ft Gladiator

(30) Going fast!
Cap Cana Marina
Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

Mike’s Marina is one of the largest and most established fleets operating out of the prestigious Marina Cap Cana. Running a string of clean, well-equipped boats and working with only the best captains in town, they offer awesome fishing with a name you can trust.

You will be spending the day fishing aboard the “Gladiator”, a 29’ Blackfin sportfisher. She may be the smallest member of their Blackfin fleet, but she comes rigged for battle like the best of them. The boat is equipped with modern electronics to sound out the deep and outriggers to spread your hooks far and wide in order to draw in the most fish.

The Gladiator also has plenty of little luxuries. Her flybridge lets you take in the view in style. Down below deck, she has a toilet for extra comfort on longer trips as well as a bed for if the intense big game action gets too much for you. You will be supplied with plenty of beer and water to keep you cool, and will also get lunch to keep your strength up on full day trips.

And you will certainly need your strength! The waters around Punta Cana are famous for the sheer size and variety of the fish that inhabit them. From monster Blue and White Marlin, to lightning-fast Wahoo, to the famously-acrobatic Sailfish, you will be fighting a real who’s who of big game pelagics.

What makes this such a great option is that you always have the perfect trip for your needs or schedule. Want the ultimate adventure? Book in for a full day battling the biggest Blue Marlin in the sea! Fancy something a little shorter, or don’t have a group to go with? Book in for a half day trip, which can be either a private or shared charter.

Mike’s Marina is the most reliable name in town. They will pick you up directly from your hotel and will take care of the little details like fishing licenses so all you have to do is show up and enjoy!

Excellent experience from start to finish! Picked us up (gf and I) from the hotel, brought us to the marina and back. Lunch was great. Sandwiches, chips, fresh fruit and cold drinks were provided for lunch. My gf has celiac and can’t have gluten so when I let them know, they went out of their way to provide a quinoa chicken salad. Where else can you get that kind of service!? Brian our captain and Roberto the mate were fantastic. Roberto kept the lines fresh and clear and Brian kept us on the fish! We landed 7 nice Mahi Mahi. 10/10 experience, will definitely use again!

Hi Thomas,

It was a pleasure working with you to create a pleasant charter experience for you and your girlfriend!  I have forwarded your feedback to Brian, Roberto, and Dayana (who bought and prepared your lunch) so they know that they are doing a great job.  We hope you enjoy the rest of your vacation and we hope to fish with you again soon!

Best regards,

Your Mike’s Marina Team

It was a nice day for a boat ride. Caught one fish and got to see a white marlin swim by the boat. Wish we caught more but that is why is is fishing and not called catching!
