Blue Cool Running Tours is currently unable to accept reservations on FishingBooker. But don't worry we've found some great alternatives for you nearby.

Blue Cool Running Tours specialize in unforgettable deep sea fishing experiences in the bountiful Honduras waters. Captain Artley Gentle has been fishing these waters for more than two decades now and is happy to show you where the best fishing is done.

His boat is a 22’ Thunderbird offshore sportfisher that runs on a single 200 HP Yamaha engine. Fast and nimble, she’ll make sure you get to the fishing grounds as soon as possible. Not only that, but she comes with snorkeling equipment on board for when you want to take a break from all the fishing.

Taking a break is completely optional, though, as these waters are absolutely teeming with fish. Deep waters are within a mile of the shore, and your fishing adventure will begin approximately within just a few minutes of leaving the dock. Once there, you will be trolling with six trolling lines used with a combination of artificial and live bait.

Expect to be going after the likes of Blue Marlin, Wahoo, Blackfin Tuna, Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Barracuda, Sailfish, and Snapper. Even the most skilled angler can expect to have their hands full.

All fishing charters include professional rods, bait, bottled water and local beer. The crew always recommends bringing sunscreen and your camera to capture the excitement.
