Marine Services D.R.

Plaza Isla Bonita, Calle Duart…
Boca Chica, Dominican Republic

Marine Services Dominican Republic is a full service charter that offers personalized trips to groups aboard their boat. They work hard to put you on the species you want to target, using the techniques you want to use. At the same time, if you would like to go spearfishing or diving, they would be happy to jump in the water with you at a moment’s notice. Otherwise, they are happy to tend the BBQ behind the reef while you snorkel in the crystal clear waters.

Their boat is a stylish 35 ft Egg Harbor that can comfortably accommodate up to 8 guests on fishing trips, and 20 on island cruises. It features a spacious flybridge for excellent views of the coastline and surrounding waters, and its large deck is fitted with a fighting chair to help you tackle the biggest of game fish. Inside, there is a restroom, a kitchen, seating, and a multimedia system for your enjoyment.

Choose between fishing and island hopping: whichever option you go for, the team at Marine Services Dominican Republic will make sure your day is one to remember. Whether you would like to troll for game fish such as Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, King Mackerel, Tuna, and Marlin, bottom fish, spear fish, or snorkel, they will provide all the gear you need for an enjoyable time on the water.

At the end of the day, the crew at Marine Services Dominican Republic are happy to recommend their favorite local restaurant, which will prepare their clients’ catch for just 350 pesos per person ($7.70). This includes your catch cooked however you like and one side (but no drinks).

I was fascinated with fishing since a young age. I began living my dream of commercial fishing in Florida in 2004, then I was fortunate enough to move to Dominican Republic and started fishing in Boca Chica area.

I had a great time with Captain David and the crew.  Everyone worked hard to try to find fish and in keeping the baits free of grass as we trolled.  Very hard working and very friendly bunch.  We encountered all kinds of weather from overcast to sun to rain and everyone kept working through all of it.  I plan on going with them again if the opportunity arises.

Caught a nice Wahoo and many dorado and ate right away after we came back in at the Sporting Restaurant! Great fish prep and awesome Italian food! Captain had food and beverage for us and made us feel at home! 100% great day.
