Captain
Nelson Herrera

Member since December 2013 Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic
Background
I grew up fishing in the Caribbean waters. I am a third generation fisherman, who grew up fishing with his dad and siblings at an early age. I have won many prestigious Billfish tournaments held in Ocean World, Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic. Because of my curiosity for fishing at an early age, I asked many questions in the fishing docks to experienced fishermen who provided me with pointers and teaching methods. It was my passion for fishing that brought me to become a captain. On my trip you also get two for one with my passions: An experienced Fisherman and a Chef; to cook is another of my passions, so as a special service, we'll cook on board our catch for free.
Techniques
Fishing is my passion and I love to share it with others, this is why I like to take the opportunity and time to teach those who are interested in learning and provide a good rate or find ways to have those with the same passion join me.
