Top Fishing Charters in Puerto Plata

Fishing in Puerto Plata

Not too many places along the Caribbean can boast about 25000 billfish hookups per year without being laughed out of the room - but when it comes to its pelagic potential, Puerto Plata is always dead serious. The area is well known among anglers for its many Striped Marlin bites occurring virtually right outside the marina, with the submerged banks off the city’s eastern coast proving prolific for Blue Marlin and Sailfish enthusiasts all year round. Light tackle fishermen will be happy to find resident Dorado and Tuna schools cruising along the drop off, with whales, dolphins and giant ray sightings in the wild often making a family fishing trip more exciting than a visit to any aquarium.
