Fishing for Blue Marlin has been booming in the Dominican Republic over the last 5 years and the country is now one of the biggest Blue Marlin fisheries in the whole world. While high season for Blue Marlin here runs from July to September you can find the species in the water all year round. High season means just that - Blue Marlin double headers have been fairly frequent, with many charters quoting a catch a day in the summer. In recognition of this fact, the Billfish Report named the Dominican Republic as no. 1 billfishery in 2013, calling the 2013 season there "one of the finest Blue Marlin seasons the world has ever seen".

Marlin here tend to be slightly smaller than average, but their abundance and agility certainly makes a trip to the Dominican Republic for Marlin fishing more than worthwhile.

What People Are Saying About Marlin (Blue) Fishing in Dominican Republic

"Full day with Captain Edgar and Crew"

Curtis Melle fished with Tease Me Sportfishing on August 17, 2018

Awesome experience! I have never caught a fish that big until my trip top the DR. Marlin fishing was great as in 5 Blue Marlins in one day. Not to mention the Mahi's, Wahoo, and tuna we caught.

"3/4 Day Trip with Captain Ricky and First Mate Tito"

Aaron Holderness fished with Atlantida Punta Cana - Marlin Fever on August 6, 2018

We set out for a 6-hour trip and pretty quickly the younger teenagers became seasick. The crew of Marlin Fever were very accommodating and allowed us to drop off the 4 seasick persons back to the marina and continue the rest of our trip. Fishing that day started out slow but we were able to land about 35lbs of Mahi-Mahi by trips end. The seas were rough, but overall the trip was worth it.

"6 hour Mahi trip"

fished with High Z’s Fishing Tour on July 17, 2018

Once we found the weed line then the Mahi Mahi were hitting. Strictly fishing for Marlin as I requested didn't happen. Great boat for fishing dolphins. 6 hrs can easily change to 8 if you are enjoying. Price was highly competitive compared to East Coast charters, and was a short run to get to the action. Safe, clean, and honest charter.
