Fishing Tour Details

Panama is considered a paradise for sport fishing, including inshore and offshore, in fact, one of the possible meanings of the word “Panama” is an abundance of fish and butterflies. We have more than 250 fishing records worldwide, more than anywhere in the world, among the main saltwater species, are sailfish, wahoo, and marlin.

The south coast of Panama in Veraguas has good weather conditions almost all year and multiple natural landscapes, which allows huge alternatives to practice fishing.

On surrenders of Coiba National Park, lovers, and amateurs of this sport have a long coastline with an abundance of marine fauna every month of the year. Here, fishing becomes an exceptional sport because the species that can be caught are exotic and coveted.

Sportfishing is an activity with a recreational purpose.  To protect our resources, we offer catch and release fishing.

We are sport fishermen and we know that one day in Coiba is not enough, so we recommend our fishing options for multiple days. We can certainly offer you an option that meets your requirements and needs.

Coiba - The Best Place for Fishing in Panama

There may well be other remote, tropical areas that provide a better blend of inshore and offshore fishing than Coiba National Park including Hannibal Bank, large populations and wide variety of fish make fishing the reefs and banks in and near a year round activity.
Fishing around Isla Coiba also offers the unforgettable experience of passing by uninhabited islands, many of them wildlife reserves, with white sand beaches that run into deep jungle habitats. This is also a world renowned scuba diving destination thanks to conservation laws that are in place to protect local marine life.
The Coiba National Park (Parque Nacional Coiba) was formed in 1992, which is comprised of Coiba and 38 small islands by an enormous army of cubera snapper and roosterfish and the water surrounding them covering an area of 270,125 hectares to frequent and potentially enormous wahoo , mahi mahi and yellow fin tuna. It is managed by the Ministry of Environment (MIAMBIENTE) to whom visiting boats need to apply for licenses to enter (per person) and to fish (per boat).
The area is best known for its offering of black marlin and yellowfin tuna, which are best caught from December through April along with blue marlin, pacific sailfish and dorado. Other offshore species like rooster fish, grouper, blackfin tuna, swordfish, wahoo and snapper thrive in the region, while inshore species like blue travally, sierra mackerel, rainbow runners, jack crevalle and several types of tuna can be found thriving in estuaries and mangrove swamps year round.
The east side of Coiba from Rancheria Island south through Bahia Damas often offers smooth waters were large snapper, snook and jacks can be enticed by fly fishing techniques.
