Colombia Direct – Aquavit I

Colombia Direct is a full-service charter provider operating out of Cartagena. They offer fantastic fishing adventures for clients from all over the globe. Cartagena is somewhat of an undiscovered gem by Central American standards, with fantastic offshore fishing year-round and a vibrant friendly city atmosphere welcoming you after your bluewater battles.

The Aquavit I is one of the crew’s top boats, and one of the most luxurious you will find anywhere along Colombia’s coast. At 50’, she carries 5 passengers in luxury, with every conceivable convenience found on board.

The vessel comes equipped with GPS, fishfinder, outriggers, and a fighting chair. She also boasts a spacious and fully air-conditioned interior complete with a galley, head, cabin, and plenty of space to relax in the cool. There’s a large flybridge where you can relax and enjoy the view between bites.

The crew takes pride in offering unbeatable fishing adventures on the best boats around, and nowhere is that more evident than aboard the Aquavit I. You will be provided with tournament grade tackle set up ready to troll for Marlin, Sailfish, Tuna, Wahoo, and more huge pelagic species which call the area home.

All trips come with live bait, licenses, food and drinks, as well as an experienced captain and a skilled, hard-working crew. They will keep you hooked up all day long, and clean and fillet your catch at the end of your trip.

Explore the beautiful waters off the coast of Cartagena with Colombia Direct and have an adventure you won’t forget!
