Punta Cana Offshore Fishing

Punta Cana
Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

Punta Cana Offshore Fishing is the ultimate fishing charter for catching the big game fish in the beautiful Punta Cana waters. The charters are run by an extremely experienced captain who loves fishing and taking his guests out to the deep waters. Him and his team are experts in locating and catching Mahi Mahi and Marlins, as well as smaller nearshore fish. You will have an action-packed day with this crew and will always cherish the memories.

The fishing is done aboard the 42 foot Bertram offshore sport fishing boat originally built in 1987, and with a capacity for 6 anglers. It is powered by two 450 HP Detroit 6V71 Turbo engines. This sound vessel comes with all the safety equipment needed in form of life jackets, flares and a CPR-trained crew. It also possesses electronics such as a GPS, a radar and an excellent fishfinder which is used to locate the deep sea fish. The boat also has a flybridge and a toilet, which comes in very handy on the full day trip.

Punta Cana Offshore Fishing charters will take you fishing in the gorgeous Dominican waters. You can stay nearshore, from 3 to 8 miles and catch Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Barracuda the tasty King Mackerel.  Alternatively, you can go further offshore into the deep water which is the playground for White and Blue Marlin, Sailfish and Yellowfin Tuna.

Captain Danny will provide you with rods, reels, tackle, baits, drinks, snacks, and lunch, and will clean and fillet your catch at the end of your trip. Punta Cana Offshore Fishing implements a strict catch and release policy for all Billfish. Children over the age of 8 are welcome on board.

Running the biggest fishing company in Punta Cana and enjoying fishing is what we do. Since I was a teenager, I used to go to the Florida Keys and fish with my brother and friends from bridges, and charter rentals until I said to myself: :"I will have a charter company but I have to understand business and fishing", and I did it. We know lots about this business the same way we know about fishing.

I didn’t book to boat that we selected. The captain wasn’t the one I booked. The crew was friendly but there was a language barrier. They tried very hard. I really was hoping to get a marlin but the baits they used really didn’t target that species. The bait would work but not really targeted for marlin. We did catch seven mahi mahi. They tried very hard to make sure we caught fish.

We appreciate your feedback Mr Steger, we have lots of traveling planned and myself Capt Danny was not on the country at the giving time, the boat name is Vikinga and is a 42 ft Bertram. Ballyhoos are the bait to target white marlin bit i do recognize that you wanted to go with lifebait and we do not used life bait. Thank you once again.

The captain and his mate could have done a better job keeping the lines clear of seaweed.  Lunch offered was horrible, a piece of bread with one piece lunchmeat and 1 piece of cheese with no mayo or mustard.  The boat was not properly maintained:  the cushions had large holes and you sank when you sat on them.  The guests could not keep any fish caught.  The fish caught were placed on the boat and were not iced down.  The captain and his mate did not switch up on fishing method when not catching anything.  They did not change the bait .  They should have tried different lures.  It was 6 of us and only 2 of us caught fish…...
