The Pearl Island Charter Company

Flamenco Island
Panamá, Panamá

The Pearls Islands Charter Company operates out of Flamenco Island, Panama, providing anything from beach tours to the local islands, to hardcore fishing adventures 30+ miles offshore. The Pearl Islands are a paradise of white sandy shores and crystal clear waters, with secluded beaches flowing down into vibrant fisheries. Further offshore you can take advantage of the huge variety of big game species which migrate through these warm Pacific waters every year.

You will be spending the day aboard “Da’Boss” - a 32 ft Proline Express sportfisherman powered by twin 275HP Mercury Verados. She comes equipped with top of the line Garmin GPS and fishfinder, a livewell, outriggers, and tuna tubes for those seeking some true bluewater beasts. Da’Boss is good for more than just fishing, with a comfortable interior complete with a full multimedia system, galley, head, bed, and plenty of space both below and above deck to relax and enjoy Panama’s stunning nature.

The Pearl Islands Charter Company’s philosophy is that to catch the best you need to use the best, so they provide their clients with top of the line fishing equipment from Penn International, Shimano, Daiwa, and more. Enjoy a choice of light and heavy tackle, with the option to bottom fish, troll, spin, jig, pop, and drift fish your way to glory. You are also welcome to bring along spearfishing gear if you fancy some more hands-on fishing.

The guys at The Pearl Island Charter Company have been running fishing trips and cruises for over 20 years, and have logged thousands of hours in the water. They believe strongly in sustainable fishing, and encourage catch and release in order to preserve Panama’s fantastic fishing stock.

Of course, anything you do wish to keep will be filleted for you, ready to eat. All trips can be catered upon request, and pick up from your hotel can be arranged - whatever they can do to make your trip that little bit more special, they will be more than happy to oblige!

Great fishing trip with cat. Edward from the Pearl Island Charter Company.
We went fishing to Las Perlas islands, which is great spot this time of the year for jigging.
The water gets cold in February-March and snappers, amberjacks and groupers go crazy.
Good boat, experienced and friendly crew, strongly recommended.
