Cap Cana Marina
Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

If you’re looking to explore some of the most popular angling waters in the Dominican Republic, there’s hardly a better way to do it than aboard the Barbie. Team up with Captain Manuel Mota Bol, and you’re in for an adventure of a lifetime. Punta Cana hosts come of the most popular fishing tournaments in the Caribbean, which is high praise indeed.

The Barbie herself is a custom-built 45’ Mares sportfisher, and she’s powered by twin 650 HP Mares engines. She’s got a spacious, air-conditioned cabin that’s just perfect for when you want to take a quick breather. Not only that, but you’ll also find a full array of navigation electronics, a kitchen, couch, two bathrooms, and more. She’s a full-fledged fishing machine, as well as a luxury vessel to boot.

When you decide to hop aboard, she’ll be waiting for you at the exclusive Cap Cana Marina, just a short drive from Punta Cana International Airport.

Punta Cana is host to a wide variety of both inshore and offshore fish species, and it’s completely up to you which to go after. Some of the usual suspects you’re likely to run into (depending on season) include Mahi Mahi, Blue and White Marlin, Sailfish, Yellowfin Tuna, and many, many more.

The crew will provide you with all the necessary rods, reels, and terminal tackle necessary for a fun time out. Also included are fishing licenses, lunch, refreshments, as well as catch cleaning services after the trip. You can always count on Barbie to show you a good time in Punta Cana, so don’t hesitate. All aboard!

Boat and crew where great. My friends and I were not ready for the water. We where warned by the captain that the water was rough and given the opportunity to reschedule but we decided to give it a try. It was to much for us and the crew tried to help but we decided to come back in. I would love to try again but doubt I will ever be back to the DR.
