Fishing in Punta Cana: Where to Reel in the Big One


Dust off your mantle and make room for the trophy you’ll be bringing home after fishing in Punta Cana. With gorgeous weather year ’round, monstrous catches, and deep-sea trolling just a few miles off shore, there is almost nowhere on earth better for reeling in that prize. To reach the best fishing spots in Punta Cana, book one of these top local charters.

Mike’s Marina Fishing Charters

As the oldest sport fishing charters in the area, Mike’s Marina Fishing has had plenty of time to perfect the art of deep-sea fishing in Punta Cana, and they know just where the big ones are biting. With four beautiful yachts to choose from, you can’t really go wrong, but why not splurge a little and book the 53-foot Viking Emily? When you arrive, your captain catches you up on what’s biting for the day—anything from mahimahi in the winter season to blue marlin in the summer. Climb aboard and check out the plush digs below deck (though you won’t spend much time there once you hit the spellbinding open Atlantic). As soon as the boat clears the channel out of the Cap Cana Marina, the fish practically start jumping aboard. Get ready for that inevitable tug on your line when you hit the jackpot. You’ll definitely want to grab your pals a round of ice-cold beers from the cooler when you head out on this adventure, but don’t get too comfy, as the line action won’t stop all day.

Gone Fishing

Have you always pictured yourself standing at the helm of a yacht, reeling in the catch of the day, but never actually made it a reality? Gone Fishing can make those dreams come true for even the least-seasoned deep-sea fisherman. When you climb aboard one of their four well-equipped yachts, you’re welcomed by an expert crew and all the gear you could need. The crew rigs the baits and gives you a quick lesson so that you’re sure to lure in a big one—no beginners luck needed. As the crisp ocean spray cools your face while you battle it out with your first blue marlin, pause for an instant and realize your fishing daydream has finally come true.

Atlantida Punta Cana

If you’re looking for an angling experience that offers great fishing and an unforgettable voyage, then weigh anchor with Atlandia Punta Cana. Specializing in inshore fishing along the reef off of Cap Cana, this voyage enables you to relax and fish without facing the rocky swells of the deep sea. As you hop aboard the 32-foot Fun Cat, you find all the fishing equipment you need waiting for you, along with snacks and a fully stocked bar. Kick back and relax as you slowly cruise out of the marina and find a good spot to drop your lines. Before you know it, you’re pulling in the inshore regulars, like barracudas, yellow tails, and tarpon. Celebrate with a toast and enjoy the breathtaking view of the glittering reef life below.
