Guatemala Fishing Tours is a family-run charter business operating out of Puerto Quetzal. They offer whale and seabird watching tours in addition to fishing charters targeting an all-star cast of offshore species. Guatemala is renowned for its unbeatable sailfishing, as well as the wide variety of Marlin, Tuna, and more that call the country home. This, along with the area’s beautiful nature and warm, Pacific waters make Puerto Quetzal the perfect destination for the ultimate fishing holiday!
The vessel you will be fishing aboard is a 26 ft Shamrock sportfisherman which was completely overhauled in 2010. Powered by twin 160HP Yanmar engines, she cruises at a respectable 20 knots, and can carry up to 5 guests in luxury and style. The vessel comes equipped with GPS, fishfinder, a full spread of outriggers, downriggers, and centerriggers, a livewell, and even tuna tubes! She also boasts a clean, comfortable interior complete with a cabin, bathroom with freshwater shower, and plenty of space to relax between bites, either down below deck, or up on high on the flybridge.
When it comes to the fishing you won’t find a better selection of equipment anywhere in the country. A choice of light and heavy tackle is standard, and depending on your preference and target species you can set up for bottom fishing, trolling, spinning, popping, jigging, and even fly and bowfishing. Truly things don’t get better than this: An experienced captain and skilled crew taking you out on a great boat with top of the line gear to catch some of the best big game species on the planet!
All Guatemala Fishing Tours trips come with drinks, lunch, licenses, and a cleaning and filleting service for anything you want to take away at the end of the day. The company respects all national laws, both maritime and terrestrial. All staff are highly qualified for their respective tasks and every boat contains safety measures and a medical kit in case of an emergency.
