First Class Fishing Charter – 38'

First Class Fishing Charters crew sets a goal each time they take out a guest and that is to catch big fish! This is what you will do when you go out with them. They will use their knowledge of the local waters to create a once-in-a-lifetime adventure for you. You will learn from the captain and mate, and have fun doing so!

You’ll fish aboard their 38’ Luhrs saltwater fishing boat. The boat is fully equipped with safety equipment and the latest electronics as it was restored in 2015 to give it some treatment and care. This beauty is powered by two 350 HP Cummins engines that make it speedy. There’s a flybridge which can be used for fly fishing, and a toilet for your convenience.

The crew will take you fishing in the offshore waters of Punta Cana where so many desirable fish species live. You’ll be amazed by the colorfulness under the blue line of water. Your targeted species will include Amberjack, Sailfish, Blue and White Marlin, Wahoo, King Mackerel and other offshore species that call these waters home.

Your captain and mate will provide you with rods, reels, tackle, bait, and vast amounts of transferable knowledge to make your trip a very successful one. You will have refreshments on board in the form of soft drinks, beer, snacks, and ice, so you can relax and enjoy your offshore adventure.

What are you waiting for? Join First Class Fishing Charter and explore the waters of the Dominican Republic!
