I could go on for days trying to describe Shane's lodge but I will attempt to condense it into a single page. I arrived at the airport in David and was greeted by Steve in the terminal to help with my luggage then escorted to Shane's brand new van for his guest to be transported to the marina in. I've...

Our experience with Capt. Shane and his staff was great. We were picked up in Boca Chica and taken to the lodge by boat. It took about 35 min. When we got to the island, Beebob brought us ashore and Steve took us to the cabin. While we were at the cabin we were offered cocktails, beer, soda and water....

The food was awesome and accommodations very...

Living here in Panama for over eight years now I have the benefit of traveling short distances. Unlike most of Shane's guests who come from around the world, I have just a few hours to meet him and his talented staff.

Thanks Captain Shane and Johnny for an outstanding fishing trip. You accommodated the 3 generations of Walraven men very well. From my youngest son who caught a tuna larger than himself to my 75 year old father who reeled in a couple of 60 pounders. And I want to give a special thanks to Lee for the excellent food. We...

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
