Mike’s Marina - 29ft Gladiator

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!

Caught a dozen dolphin fish on a 4hr charter. The crew supplied some drinks and chips for the trip. Downside is, there is no fishing chair. The head leaked when used and no toilet seat for the wife. Thought the boat was a bit slow for its size, for getting out on the water to fish.

Hi Christopher,

Thank you for your feedback!

You are correct, the Gladiator due to its size has a rocket launcher instead of a fighting chair.

We will have the head checked this week, as of now the crew had not notified us of this issue. 

Captain Charlie rarely runs the boat since fishing grounds start so close to the marina.

Hope that you had a great vacation, and hope to fish with you again soon!

Excellent service from pick up to drop off.  Driver showed up at my hotel at 7:15 am, as scheduled, and was waiting on the dock when we returned.  I enjoyed the fighting belt approach on the Gladiator rather than sitting in the chair.  Ive fished Hawaii, Gulf of Texas, and Baja Mexico.  Capt. Charlie and his son are by far the best and hardest working, and the boat and equipment were top notch.  Excellent trip and cant wait to return!!!

The arrangements from start to finish were absolutely flawless. Our captain and deck hand did an outstanding job trying to put us on fish . Although there wasn’t to many hookups , the White Marlin that I did catch was a blast . Thank you Mike , Captain Charlie , and the great deck hand Charlie
