Cartagena Fishing invites you to join them on a memorable offshore fishing trip in Colombia. The crew has over 35 years of fishing experience among themselves and will do their best to get you on the fish and keep you there. Anglers of all ages and skill levels are welcome, and the captain will take care to make sure the trip is tailored to your needs.

The boat is a 38’ Todomar sportfishing vessel that’s powered by twin 250 HP Suzuki engines. There’s plenty of room on the boat for up to seven people to fish in comfort, so why not bring the whole family along for the ride? The boat is equipped with all the necessary gear and electronics needed for a safe and productive trip, letting you focus on the fishing itself.

Colombia is one of the best places to be if you’re at all into big-game fishing. From Mahi Mahi to Cobia, Marlin, and Tuna, these waters are every angler’s dream. There are plenty of bottom feeders like Snapper to find as well if you want to catch something tasty. The crew prefers deep dropping and vertical jigging but will do whatever is needed to help you hook the catch of your dreams.

Rods, reels, and terminal tackle come included in the price of the trip, along with the necessary fishing licenses. There are also drinks to be found aboard, so the only thing that’s really missing is you!

Member since May 2017
From the start of my life, I was born into a salt family. The first time I was taken fishing was at the age of 2. Fishing is part of my soul. From then on, I set out to conquer all styles of fishing from the high county in Colorado to the Colombian Caribbean. I became more and more knowledgeable as time progressed, as one would. My passion for others to have a great fight and enjoy a fish for dinner the same day is my goal for our customers.
