Deep Sea Fishing
Duration: Half Day
Fishing has long been an integral part of Dominican life within its coastal villages, helping to sustain local communities for hundreds of years. If you are staying in Juan Dolio on the Dominican’s southern coast and want to experience the thrills of fishing in these local waters, there are numerous fishing boat charter tours available – one of the most popular being deep sea fishing. Sail out onto the sparkling waters of the Caribbean and prepare for plenty of action and adventure at sea.
Fishing in the Dominican Republic offers some of the best deep sea fishing opportunities in the Caribbean. The beautiful white sandy beaches, crystal clear cobalt blue waters and abundance of game fish attracts many a novice and experienced angler looking to test their skills and catch ‘the big one’. You can even get the entire family involved. Your experienced and knowledgeable charter boat captain and crew will lead you to the best fishing grounds in the area, so you will have the best chance of landing that prize catch.
Occupying two thirds of the island of Hispaniola, which it shares with Haiti, the Dominican Republic is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean to the North and the Caribbean Sea to the South. These waters are teeming with marine life, including hundreds of fish species. Deep sea fishing is available all year round, but depending on the time you visit, you are likely to catch sailfish, marlin, wahoo, barracuda, spearfish, mahi-mahi (dolphin fish) and many other billfish. Wait for the fish to bite and then get ready for a battle as you wrestle with your catch on the other end of your rod before reeling it in. Whatever you catch, you’ll have fantastic memories to take away with you.
Your friendly boat crew will ensure that you have an exciting and memorable day full of fun and adventure. They will also be happy to answer any questions you may have during the trip. All fishing equipment is included on board. Several world records have been recorded in these unspoiled waters so who knows what you will catch on the day! Relax and enjoy the boat ride as you cruise along the picturesque South Coast and take in the spectacular scenery all around you. This is an exhilarating adventure not to be missed during your holiday in the Dominican Republic.
