Deep Sea Fishing in Punta Cana

Punta Cana deep sea fishing needs no introduction. The town has established itself as one of the best places to target big game pelagics in the entire world. Space-age sportfishers and luxury cruisers pack like sardines into the exclusive Marina Cap Cana, each helmed by a seasoned captain. Head out from the harbor, and you could be battling billfish within 3 miles of shore or dropping lines into 8,000 feet of water on a day trip!
 
And there really is no bad time to visit. White Marlin, Blue Marlin, and Sailfish tag each other out over the course of the year, and Wahoo and Mahi Mahi can be caught pretty much year-round. Punta Cana also has some of the hottest winter Tuna and Swordfish action in the Caribbean. At this rate, you may as well just move there, because you’re not going to want to leave!

What Can I expect from a deep sea fishing trip?

You don’t need to go far to find big fish in Punta Cana. White Marlin can be caught within 20 minutes of leaving the dock. Even the most legendary Blue Marlin spots like Macao Beach and the Pink House are within easy reach on a full day trip. Half day winter Wahoo charters can give you more action than you’d see in a week elsewhere, with high-speed trolling and endless hookups. Swordfishing trips are also popular here, fishing into the unfathomable depths of the Puerto Rico Trench.
 
Punta Cana deep sea fishing guides are serious about what they do. Competition is almost as fierce as the fish themselves, and captains are constantly upping their game to stay ahead of the pack. Live bait is often hard to come by here, but you’ll have plenty of frozen Ballyhoo and an inventive range of colorful teasers to play with. Captains will switch these regularly, matching whatever the fish are feeding on to make sure you never catch your breath.

How much will it cost?

A half day deep sea trip will cost you around $600 aboard one of the many awesome sportfishing boats docked in Marina Cap Cana. These can get you on more Wahoo and Mahi Mahi than you’ll know what to do with, as well as some good catches of White Marlin if you time your trip right.
 
Full days cost twice as much, but you’re paying for fishing time, not a long journey. You’ll can target Blue Marlin on a standard full day trip. Most charter guides run special 10 or 12-hour trips, taking you 30-40 miles around the coast to fish for monster Blue Marlin or Swordfish. These can cost over $1500 but have serious potential of putting you on Grander Blue Marlin.
