Big Marlin Charters Punta Cana

Explore Punta Cana’s pristine waters with “Big Marlin Charters”! This much loved fishing destination brings in anglers from all over the world, and it’s no wonder why. Take your fishing adventure to the next level by heading out with this experienced crew and make your trip an unforgettable one!

Your vessel for the day is “Cana,” a 32’ Luhrs. It features a wide hull, making it stable in rough waters and providing you with lots of free space to fight the fish. In between the bites, you can cool off in the cabin and relax on comfy leather couches. To aid you in fighting big fish, Cana is also equipped with a fighting chair. There’s also a flybridge if you want to enjoy the breeze and a marine ladder in case you want to go swimming or snorkeling.

There’s also an onboard toilet, ensuring you and your fellow guests are comfortable all trip long. What’s more, the boat has its own kitchen and multi-media system for your entertainment.

A day out with Big Marlin Charters sees you heading offshore. You’ll target a variety of species, including Mahi Mahi, Blue and White Marlin, Pacific Barracuda, Wahoo, King Mackerel, and Sailfish. The crew is specialized in trolling and heavy tackle and provides all the equipment you need.

That includes Penn International and Shimano rods, reels, and tackle, as well as Rapala lures. On top of that, the crew brings along snacks, drinks, and lunch. At the end of the trip, your catch is cleaned and filleted for easy transport home.

With Big Marlin Charters you can count on getting your hands on that trophy catch! The company’s private van is available for both pickup and dropoff and included.
