Panamá Canal Gatun Lake Fishing - 3-hours

This product is currently unavailable. This could be for reasons including it's out of season, currently sold out, or no longer operating.
This tour is exclusive and limited to two anglers on our unique custom designed Rainforest Expedition boat.
What to Expect

On this 3-hour exclusive tour, limited to two anglers, we provide you with all the rods, tackle and live bait that you will need for the day. We target Peacock Bass and Snook. We will also be on the lookout for feeding, but very elusive, Tarpon and Jacks.

Throughout the tour, there will be a Guide (Owner/English) and licenced boat Captain (Spanish), who both double as Wildlife and Fishing Guides.

Enjoy tea, coffee, cool refreshing beverages, fruit, 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.
TIP: This is a great tour for anyone staying at the Gamboa Rainforest Resort Hotel. We will pick you up from the lobby at 6:15am, and in 10mins you are on the boat, heading up the Panama Canal. At the end of the tour, we then get you back in time for a hearty Hotel breakfast.
