For travelers chasing the thrill of deep-sea fishing, Dominican Republic fits their needs. Situated with the Atlantic Ocean to the north and the Caribbean Sea to the south, the country offers a fishing experience like no other. Whether you want to cast a line from the shore or embark on an epic charter boat experience, Dominican Republic’s crystal-clear waters make it the idyllic fishing destination for all skill levels.
From Punta Cana to La Romana and Juan Dolio, the Caribbean Sea is home to blue marlin, white marlins, mahi-mahi, wahoo, swordfish and tuna; while blue marlin, wahoo and barracudas can be found in the waters off the North Coast.
While many visitors fish in Dominican Republic as a leisurely hobby, others come to compete at many of the tournaments that take place throughout the year. Cap Cana, which is only ten minutes from the Punta Cana International Airport (PUJ), hosts the three-day International Cap Cana Billfish Shootout each year where professionals reel in record-breaking catches.
