The Pacific coastline from Panama City to David is largely unpopulated, and home to some of the most pristine and untouched fishing destinations in the world. The area is known for its abundant marine life, which includes species such as marlin, sailfish, tuna, wahoo, and more.
The many uninhabited islands along the coast provide excellent opportunities for sportfishing, with some of the best fishing grounds in the world. The area’s rich fishing heritage is reflected in the name of the country itself, which means “place of good fishing” in the indigenous language.
Panama has become a popular destination for sportfishing enthusiasts in recent years, thanks to its abundant marine life, untouched wilderness, and world-class fishing grounds. It is also known for its warm and welcoming people, who are always happy to share their love of fishing with visitors.
For anglers seeking a truly unique and unforgettable fishing experience, Panama offers some of the best opportunities in the world. From the remote islands off the coast to the pristine waters of the Pacific, there is something for everyone in this beautiful and vibrant country.

The Islands of Tahiti in French Polynesia are situated in the South Pacific, halfway between California and Australia. The destination is made up of 118 atolls and islands, which offer beautiful mountain peaks, lagoons, and beaches with white, pink, and black sand. The atolls remain largely undiscovered and pristine. The coral gardens are home to a variety of sea life and are great for fishing, diving, swimming, and snorkeling. The climate is tropical with average temperatures around 80°F and water temperatures around 79°F.
This fishing trip is not a deluxe vacation to a five star hotel with cocktails and massages on the beach. What makes this destination so unique is that the atoll is located away from any tourism and without hotels, souvenir shops or bars. You will likely be the only visitor there and the only fisherman out on the water. When not out fishing, swimming or snorkeling you will have the opportunity to befriend the very welcoming local Tahitians and maybe join them for a game of Jeux de Boule.
This is a chance to immerse yourself into French Polynesian culture while enjoying spectacular fishing for many species such as marlin, tuna, dolphinfish and wahoo.
The Galapagos Islands are located exactly on the equator, six hundred nautical miles off the coast of Ecuador. The Galapagos, a 17000 sq mi archipelago, the newest on the planet, is under the care of the ‘Parque Nacional de Galapagos’.
In order to manage this immense natural wonder, a few Galapagos born citizens are allowed to work there, mainly in Park Services, coast guard and Ecuadorian Navy. Some tourism has been accepted as a way to provide an income. Tourism companies work hand in hand with the Park Service to insure minimal impact on the environment.
Galapagos Islands are home to black and blue marlin, and a mecca for striped marlin, the most acrobatic of the bill fish family. The banks off San Cristobal will give you one of the best opportunities in the world to catch numerous striped marlin, and the average day can produce as many as thirty to fifty sightings.
