What to Expect
Your tour starts with early pickup from your hotel in Punta Cana. Board a 42-foot (13-meter) yacht for your half-day personalized fishing charter. Your captain takes you to some of Punta Cana’s best spots for deep-sea sport fishing. Depending on the season, troll for trophy size migratory fish species such as tuna, blue marlin, barracuda, sailfish, mahi mahi, wahoo, king mackerel, and more. In between catches, snorkel around the underwater reefs, visit secluded beaches, and sightsee from the yacht’s deck. Your crew can suggest stops and adapt the itinerary to fit the needs of your group, so kids can enjoy this activity too. Have lunch on the boat, and then cruise back to the marina and end your tour with hotel drop-off in Punta Cana.
