Everything about this trip was exceptional. You can tell when the owners really care, because it will trickle down to everyone involved. The level of Hospitality we received was world class. The on site Chef creates a dinner menu based on what you bring back!! He was also always there to whip up a side of Guacamole or Pico de... More

We are two families that have had annual fishing trips for the last 17 years. We have fished in many places near and far. PBGFC was undoubtedly the most unique experience for us with great accommodations, excellent food and drink, outstanding service and some of the very best fishing we have ever experienced. We caught a 500 lbs. black marlin,... More

From the moment my Father and I arrived at the club everything was first class. From the drinks that are served to you the second you arrive to the accommodations to the food. No detail left to chance. The boats and the equipment are all top of the line. Everything well maintained and clean. The captains and the mates all... More

When you hear about the fishing here, you start to wonder if it's all true. Where do I start? The Gulf of Panama is a unique environment, fed by nutrient-rich waters - so in better words, this place is AWESOME! I had the opportunity to take a friend of mine who has never set foot on Panamanian waters and the... More

This club does it right! From the moment you step off the plane in Panama city to the drinks and apps at the pool bar after a long day of catching marlin, they make sure you are comfortable and taken care of. Don't hesitate, book the trip, this is the place! Team Chewy

Where to start? Panama big game has taught me what "all inclusive" really means. The first call I received was from Sherri to ask what I like to eat, drink, and what I wanted to fish for. As we chatted I realized we were planning a personalized package. How many drinks we wanted on the boat and what our personal... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Awarded a Certificate of Excellence 2012 and 2013, by Tripadvisor, the first and only fishing resort ever to be honoured with this award. Our upscale waterfront jungle location is abundant with wildlife. These natural wonders help make this sport fishing lodge equalled by few places left on the planet. We are able to provide dream vacations where you can fish the big game fish, relax in a tropical setting and enjoy gourmet dining. The Club is located on the Island of Boca Brava and has proximity to the famous fishing grounds of Hannibal Bank, Isla Coiba, Montuosa and many other islands dotted throughout this area. Fishing is good year round with a lot of that due to the many sea mounds and banks that bring the bottom up from a Thousand Meters to less than Forty Meters. These areas hold a lot of baitfish. Inshore and offshore fish species include: black marlin, blue marlin, tuna, sailfish, wahoo, mahi mahi, cubera snapper, rock snapper, mullet snapper, yellow snapper, rooster fish, amberjack, crevalle jack, blue jack, horse-eye jack, sierra mackerel. Our sportfishing packages are all inclusive: accommodations, fine dining, open bar, Infinity pool with swim-up bar and Spa and local air and land transfers. The resort has undergone a multi-million dollar upgrade completed in May 2012. ... more   less
