Gatún Sportfishing Lodge

Member since April 2018 Gamboa, Panama
Background
Rolando Periera is an avid fisherman, licensed captain, and operator of Gatun Sportfishing Lodge. After working as an executive in the tourism industry with multinational, high-performance organizations for more than 15 years, he decided to start out on his own. 10 years ago, he booked a fishing trip in the Everglades. His guide told him his story, how he went from a desk in the corporate world to making his living as a full-time charter captain. Rolando immediately knew that was the life for him. A decade down the line, he offers other anglers the chance to experience that fishing trip of a lifetime. Every single detail about your trip is supervised by Rolando or his partner Gerardo. From the moment you are picked up until the time of your return, every single need is taken care of. And if you have a request, they will do everything in their power to make it happen for you. Arrive as a client and leave as a friend!
