Three days we had marlin passing across the back of...

My wife and I plus two friends spent the week fishing with Capt Shane and Capt Nateen and their team. Fishing was excellent - We caught a black marlin, several great tuna, Cubrera, Rooster fish and several other varieties. Chef Lee prepared great food and made some extra gluten free stuff for me.

Captain Shane and his staff were amazing, he made our fishing and staying on the island absolutely unforgettable. A great bonus was delicious food. We will remember the dinners from Lee, the chef at the lodge. I would highly recommend this place.

We had a fantastic day trip with Shane on TOP CAT! Leaving from Seagull Cove Resort, we spent the day fishing with Shane and his mate Juan. It was a fun filled day. We caught a big yellow fin tuna, a sailfish, grouper, and bonita. It was fun because of all the action. Shane knew just where to take us...

This was my first trip to Panama, I fished with Shane for three days on his Cat right before Christmas. I would be fine living on a deserted tropical island paradise with an abundance of tuna and billfish located just 35 miles offshore, however my wife doesn’t fish and would have probably been bored the entire time. I think she...

The complete synchronization of our trip from the time we landed in Tocumen airport till the time we left was spot on. You are treated as a VIP from the time you land, escorted through customs, short wait in VIP lounge, then driven to the Hilton Panama by your private driver. We had the privilege of getting Arsenio who also...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Sport Fish Panama Island Lodge is a boutique offshore tropical island sport fishing lodge located on Isla Parida in the Gulf of Chiriqui, Panama. Fly into the city of David, in the Chiriqui Providence, travel by boat 12 miles off the Pacific coastline and you will find Isla Parida....an untouched jungle paradise that is a protected national park. Our private island lodge is inside Panama's Gulf of Chiriqui National Marine Park and is truly "off the grid." No roads, no concrete, just jungle and white sand beaches. Sportfishing, snorkeling, sea kayaking, hike, or just hang out on one of our deserted beaches. Sportfishing here in the Gulf of Chiriqui is legendary! Black Marlin and Yellowfin Tuna are encountered offshore at Hannibal Bank, Coiba, and Isla Montuosa all only minutes away. Inshore prey such as Cubera Snapper and Roosterfish are caught in the water right in front of the lodge! We specialize in an upscale sportfishing experience with great food, personalized service, accommodations, and highly maintained boats and equipment. ... more   less
