is the best time of the year?
The combination of trade winds and coincident currents cause the upwelling of nutrients from January through June and attract huge schools of baitfish that, in turn, are prey for great numbers of billfish, particularly Blue Marlin which peak from February through May. White Marlin and Sailfish abound during May to November, peaking from August through October,
generally the fishing is excellent all year around.

We love children and Sea Fighter’s cockpit area
is a secure place for small children to learn fishing.
Sea conditions, the type of trip, the child’s
personality and the parent’s willingness to focus
on the child’s safety as well as fish are factors
that you need to consider. The Captain and the crews’s
