Experience the best Panamá Canal Gatun Lake

Sport Fishing tour in Panamá

Fabulous Day with Wonderful Guides

TripAdvisor review: Fishing and Photography Combo on Gatun Lake, Panama Canal

I have been on Gatun Lake fishing and feeding monkeys several times, but this trip with Andrew, Pauline and Johnny was the best. The boat was the cleanest and nicest that I have been on. The photography equipment was top rate and gave us a chance to take our own Nat Geo pictures. Andrew was outstanding at educating us on the wild life from plants to critters. Pauline provided an outstanding lunch. Johnny was an outstanding driver and fishing assistant. We hooked a bunch of fish and had a great time.

I will do this again the future since the team are now our friends for life.

Couldn't have asked for better.

All the rods, tackle and live bait that you will need for the day are provided.  We target Peacock Bass and Snook.  We will also be on the lookout for feeding, but very elusive, Tarpon and Jacks.
On the tour, there will be your Host (Owner/English) and a boat Captain (Spanish), who both double a as Wildlife and Fishing Guides.
Enjoy tea, coffee, cool refreshing beverages, fruit, and nutritious snacks

On arrival at the Marina you will be met by your Captain and Andrew.  Once seated, you will be briefed and then we head up a section of the Panamá Canal, into the lake, around several of the Monkey Islands and then into secluded and pristine Rainforest bays and inlets for a wonderful morning of fishing.
