Pty Adventure Tours - Freedom Soul

Flamenco Marina
Panamá, Panamá

Pty Adventure Tours will take you out on an unforgettable trip on their yellow speed boat named Freedom Soul. They are made up of Captain Gabriel Arauz and his crew who are all avid fishermen with 7 years of experience fishing in the Pacific and Atlantic oceans in Central America. Their mission is to bring your the best fishing experience in Panama by combining outstanding hospitality and knowledge of the local waters, for an experience that will stay in your thoughts for a lifetime.

Their boat is an 18 foot Glastron GTS 180,bow rider, which was originally built in 2015. This speedy beauty is powered by a 150 HP Evinrude E Tec engine with a maximum cruising speed of 40 knots. This is an extremely stable and comfortable boat, with generous amount of shade to protect you and your party from the tropical Panama sun. The boat also contains a GPS and a fishfinder ideal for locating the best spots where the fish are just waiting to bite your bait. They also have life jackets for safety, and snorkeling equipment at the ready, in case you decide you want to do a bit of snorkeling in the crystal clear waters of Panama.

Pty Adventure Tours will take you on fishing trips where you will have the opportunity to target species such as Spotted Peacock Bass, Red Snapper, Red Grouper, Blue and Yellowfin Tunas, and Mahi Mahi. Depending on the length of your trip and how far you go, the crew will provide guidance with catching the available species. You will have rods, reels, tackle, live and artificial bait available onboard, and the crew will have a fishing licence for you too. They will serve drinks and snacks on the half day trips, and even include a lunch in the full day package. Once your trip is over, the crew will happily clean and fillet your catch so you get to take it home or to a local restaurant where it can be made into a lovely dinner using local spices and recipes.

About the Captain

Gabriel Arauz

Member since September 2016
In early 1999 I went fishing with my father for the first time. My dad’s a fisherman. During those days fishing tools were very limited and considered low tech. I started loving fishing and used a wooden boat to go after Blue Marlin, Swordfish, Tuna, Kingfish and others. I loved fishing and it has always been my life, I thank my father for that.
