Background
My name is Humberto Quintana and I am the owner and the operator of Island Marine Punta Cana Fishing Charters. I've been fishing in the Punta Cana area for 20 years. In February 2013, I decided to take the leap and make my passion for fishing more than a hobby. I started the business with one vessel, the Emily, and before we knew it, she was at the top of Marina Cap Cana’s billfish charts!
