Our trip out on the Gulf of Chiriqui was not only memorable but action packed. Capt. Shane worked around the unusually warm water conditions and put us on Pacific Sails and Dorado. Not only was the fishing exciting but the food and boat conditions were exceptional! I can't wait to head out again with this world class crew!

Capt. Shane and the Sport Fish Panama Island Lodge crew provided excellent accommodations from the moment we stepped off the plane till our departure. Capt. Shane worked hard to find us fish despite the warm waters. The island and the lodge also provide a relaxing get away when not fishing.

Me and two of my buddies descended upon the Gulf of Chiriqui over the week of Thanksgiving. Shane & crew did a nice job making sure we had fun, and were comfortable. Rambo & Lucy (the island dogs) were also well behaved. The food was really good, and one memorable moment was an authentic American thanksgiving meal specially prepared for... More

Our trip to Isla Parida could not have been better! Incredible fishing, beautiful scenery, great food and exceptional accommodations in a truly tropical setting. After a full day of fishing (mostly catching!), being able to take a hot shower and then relax in the AC with appetizers and a cocktail was PARADISE. Thank you Capt Shane and crew for the... More

What a trip! Shane and his crew provided us with an awesome week of fishing, eating, and all around good times. The fishing was fantastic - crushed the Mahi (see below) and got into a ton of other fish. Then, after a long day of fishing, apps and drinks are ready and waiting when you get back. True paradise.

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.... More

My husband Ross and I just spent three days fishing with Capt. Shane, mate Juan, chef Mark, Steve and Beebob (!) Fishing onboard T.O.P. Cat is certainly top notch, a very comfortable ride in any conditions. Ross was there to catch Roosterfish, and caught Roosters, Wahoo, Snappers and a Tuna. Very happy camper! The food was awesome and accommodations very... More

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.

My wife and I, along with another couple, stayed at Propiedad de Paradise and fished for 3 days. This place is amazing and the service is top notch! The accommodations, the food, the boats, and the service were all perfect! Thanks again Capt. Shane, Johnny, Steve, and Lee for a great time!
