"Big Marlin" Private Charter – Sherlock 39'

Big Marlin Charters welcome you down to Punta Cana to spend the day fishing offshore for the biggest of big game pelagics. Target Blue and White Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Yellowfin Tuna, Wahoo, Sailfish, and more in the deep waters just a short boat ride away. This is blue water fishing just without the long travel times.

You will be fishing aboard the “Sherlock II”, a 39’ Mediterranean sportfisher powered by twin Cummins 450s up to a cruising speed of 23 knots - impressive considering her size. She can carry six guests with ease and is equipped with everything you will need for the perfect day on the water.

The boat features a large flybridge to take in the view on your way to the fishing ground and a spacious interior with a full bathroom, galley, salon, and stateroom, making it your home-from-home on the high seas.

The Sherlock II is more than just a pleasure cruiser, though. She is equipped with the latest electronics to get you locked on the fish, outriggers to best target them once you are there, and a fighting chair to make sure you bring in even the fiercest pelagic predators.

You won’t need three guesses to figure out what Big Marlin Charters specializes in. The crew are heavy tackle experts, who will get you trolling the deep and hooking fish you can only dream of. All trips come with pick up, drop off, and a selection of drinks to keep you cool and in high spirits on the high seas.

Don’t forget to bring a towel, sunscreen, seasick medication if needed, and beach shoes that you can easily take off.

So climb aboard and let the Big Marlin team show you how they earned their name.
