Pearl Island Charter Company - 26'

The Pearl Island Charter Company offers fishing trips, heading to the many amazing fishing spots scattered across the Gulf of Panama. The company ethos is to provide the very best angling experience, while also working to maintain and sustain the country’s fantastic fishing stock.

Launching out of the Diablo public boat ramp, you’ll find yourself away from the city in minutes, and will be rocketing off into the ocean. Fish around the stunning volcanic island of Taboga, head to the deepest waters in search of Sailfish, or venture out to the incredible Pearl Islands. Wherever you go, you are in for something special.

The vessel you will be using to explore this Pacific paradise is a 26’ Caribe Pro center console. She can cruise happily at just under 30 knots and will carry 6 guests in comfort and safety through these warm tropical waters. The vessel comes equipped with the latest Garmin GPS and Fishfinder to get you fishing in the right place.

The Pearl Island Charter Company has been running charters for over 20 years, and the team knows the endless islands of the Gulf of Panama better than anyone else around. They will take you to spots that few tourists get the chance to visit, let alone fish in.

You’ll hook into anything from Roosterfish and Jack Crevalle inshore, to big pelagics including Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and Sailfish further out. Add the option of hooking into a variety of Snapper and Grouper and it’s hard not to see that this is an incredibly diverse fishery.

All trips come with tackle, lures, and bait when available, as well as fishing licenses and bottled water for everyone on board. The crew will be on hand to help you during your whole trip.

They’ll also clean and fillet all your catch for you at the end of the day, ready to enjoy when you get home. The team does emphasize catch and release, however, to ensure that anglers can enjoy these beautiful waters for generations to come.
