Fishing Heavy

Fishing Heavy invites you aboard to experience the awesome fishing which has made Punta Cana a household name, with the enthusiasm and energy which makes it such an enjoyable place to visit. Your fun and safety are the number 1 concerns, so all you have to do is kick back and enjoy!

You will be fishing aboard a 40’ Beltra sportfisher which has room aboard for up to 7 guests. The vessel boasts air conditioning, fresh water toilets, a hot shower, and full multimedia capability to make sure you enjoy your trip to the max.

On every trip, you will also be given Gopro cameras to record your awesome catches and head home with some awesome photos and videos, as well as all the great fish.

You can spend your day inshore, targeting tasty table fish like Snapper and Grouper and swimming in the beautiful warm waters. What Punta Cana is famous for, though, is its great deep sea fishing. Head offshore for the chance to battle Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and Yellowfin Tuna – a real Forbes list of top big game species.

The Fish Heavy team prides itself on their great customer focus. This is a family business and they work hard to maintain their reputation for first class-service and world-class fishing.

So whether you are an experienced angler or this is your first fishing trip, these guys have the boat, the crew, and the mindset to put you on the fish of your dreams!
