Property Info

  1. Day One

    Fly into Panama City, Panama where you will be met right as you exit the plane and will be escorted to Immigration.  After getting your passport stamped you’ll be taken to our VIP Lounge where you can enjoy a cold drink (or two) while our representative collects your luggage. Once you are ready to go you’ll be taken directly to your waiting private transfer and will head to your 5-star hotel in downtown Panama City. Spend your first night in the capital where you can enjoy nightlife, casinos, and a great international culinary scene in Central America’s most modern capital city.

  2. Day Two

    The next morning we’ll take you to the nearby Albrook Airport where you will take a quick 50-minute flight to David in Western Panama. You’ll be met at the DAV Airport and taken to the Pedregal Marina just 15 minutes away. Here you’ll board your 33′ World Cat and enjoy a calm, scenic boat ride down the Rio Chiriqui, past the mangroves and river mouth and into the Gulf of Chiriqui on the Pacific Ocean. Your home for the next several days is the Sport Fish Panama Island Lodge, which is located 12 miles out to sea on Islas Paridas. You’ll can spend this day relaxing with drinks from the open bar, enjoying their pristine beach, or as many opt to do – fish from the rocks or kayaks to get yourself warmed up for the week ahead! Your stay on the island is all inclusive so all meals, snacks, daily happy hour, and open bar are all included in your package.

  3. Day Three

    Fishing day! Enjoy a light breakfast and then stroll down to the beach where you’ll be taken out to your private 33′ World Cat, gassed up and ready to go. You’ll spend today fishing offshore for marlin, sailfish, dorado, and yellow-fin tuna at famous hot spots like the Hannibal Bank, Isla Montuosa, and Isla Ladrones. Troll plastics or live bait for marlin and sails or chuck poppers into a boil of feeding yellow-fin tuna for a full day of big game action.

  4. Day Four

    Fishing day! Every day is different out there so head back out for another full day of offshore fishing. The lodge is sponsored by some of the biggest names in the sport fishing world so rest assured you’ll be fishing first class gear like Accurate reels, Blackfin rods, Mustad Hooks, and Yo-Zuri poppers and swim baits.

  5. Day Five

    Fishing day! Panama is one of the few places where big game fishing doesn’t automatically imply offshore fishing. Nicknamed “Jurassic Park”, the Gulf of Chiriqui is home to over 200 islands that provide the perfect habitat for inshore gamefish. We can catch up to 30 species in a week, but it seems every angler has cubera snapper and roosterfish ranked at the top of their bucket list.

  6. Day Six

    Let’s go fishing! This is your last day of fishing so you can focus on what you want to. Head back offshore for a trophy, stay inshore for epic light tackle action, or do a mix of both. Come back to the island and enjoy a gourmet dinner and drinks with the new friends you’ve made at the lodge.

  7. Day Seven

    You’ll depart the island early in the morning and make your hour run back to the DAV Airport so you can catch the morning flight back to Panama City. Some groups ask us to to spend one final night in Panama City while others arrange their international flights to fly home this same day.
