“Amazing Experience”

Island Marine C. Cana

Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: At Island Marine, we offer yearlong fishing and beach excursions in pristine Punta Cana! Offshore fishing charters are on the Emily, our 53' Viking, where we target white and blue marlin, sailfish, tuna, wahoo, and mahi-mahi. You can also go inshore fishing in the reef-protected waters of Juanillo and Punta Cana aboard our 19' Mako, and catch tarpon, snook, mackerel, bonefish, and yellowtails. What better way to relax than a private catamaran ride to the clear waters of Punta Cana, where you and your group can book morning, afternoon, or sunset trips and get VIP treatment aboard the exclusive "Rich & Famous"?

We visited Punta Cana last July and had the pleasure of fishing with the captain and crew aboard the Emily. The boat is spacious and clean. We fished with Captain Humberto and his mate Moreno for three days and it was a great experience. We caught several blue marlins and several white marlins. I would highly recommend this professional captain if you want a once in a lifetime experience. We will be back this summer to fish with them again!

My wife and I visited Punta Cana in June 2013 for our honeymoon. Our main goal was to charter a fishing trip specifically for marlin. I did tons of research and finally landed on these guys, and let me say that it was hands down one of the better decisions I've made in my life. The booking for a 3/4 day was easy and painless. The morning started off by Capt. Humberto and his brother Gabriel, the mate, picking us up personally from our hotel and driving us to back to the marina approximately 30-45 minutes away. We stepped onto the boat, which is very clean and fairly new compared to some of the others, and met the deckhand, who was rigging the dredge for the day. We departed to the ocean, which is only like a 5 minute idle and immediately began fishing. Since we were strictly looking for marlin, the day started slow. Gabriel kept us occupied and optimistic as we chatted while waiting for a knockdown. We caught a couple Mahi first, then finally the knockdown we were all waiting for. A nice white marlin on the line. My wife wrestles the feisty fish to the side of the boat where she breaks off as Gabriel is going to grab her. We trolled hard for the rest of the day but only caught a few more mahi. These guys never gave up and worked their tails off to put us on another marlin. We covered A LOT of ground. They provided sandwiches made just the way we liked them and also had water, soft drinks, and even the beer of our choice to celebrate. When we returned to the dock, the guys gladly took a few pictures with us and the Captain even took us on a little semi-tour of the marina as we went to the main building to try to find us some shirts. After it was all over, they took us back to our hotel and dropped us off at the front door. Everyone spoke very good English too, which was a plus for us Americans. Overall this was by far the highlight of our honeymoon. A big thanks goes to these guys for all their hard hard work and relentlessness in our pursuit of marlin. They even put together a short video of my wife fighting the marlin in slow motion with GoPro mounted in the cockpit and posted it to there facebook page. Would I go back with them? HELL YES, easy choice. If you are serious about fishing, these guys are the ones to go with.

Rock on Island Marine and Tight Lines in the future!! We hope to make it back one day!

A full crew full of knowledge and experience. As if they knew where these fish sleep and eat !! Hard no to see less than 4 billfish per day on these adventures. Fishing on the Emily was a safe and comfortable experience. Fishing grounds are close to shore, no lengthy travel. Boat is fully equipped with food, beverage and good music for a good time. I would hook up again with these guys anytime.
