The boat is located at the exclusive CapCana Marina, a 10 minute drive from Punta Cana International Airport and a 15-20 minute drive from most hotels in Bávaro.

The cockpit is outfitted with a variety of tackle and fishing-related amenities, including a spacious livewell, tuna tubes, Shimano reels matched to custom Calstar graphite rods, and other high-quality fishing gear. The Barbie crew utilizes well maintained, high-caliber tackle, ranging from light to heavy.

Our trip on the Barbie was all we had hoped for.  We caught two large and two smaller Mahi Mahi plus a large barricuda. We had some of the Mahi Mahi prepared for dinner and it was outstanding in taste. The Captain and First mate were super to work with and did a great job.

We ended up with enough filets to feed 17 people with a lot left over.

I would highly recommend the Captain and first mate for a great charter

Boat and crew handled 8 to 10 Rollers all morning with ease. Several of our group not so much. Crew was professional and courteous to our challenge and as things calmed later in the day put us on a wahoo and sailfish hookup. We also put some delicious pompano dorado in the boat which the crew prepared and packed for our trip back to hotel. Overall a great experience.
