Jorge was awesome, got us on fish and shared a lot of information all about Panama. His experience as a tour guide was an extra bonus on our trip.

Had a wonderful day, perfect for kids and grande parents. Everyone caught lots, saw monkeys, caymen, and all kinds of wild life. Our second trip with these guys and we’d go again!

Rich, Jorge and Elio made our day magical. We asked for the moon and they delivered the universe. Feeding the monkeys for me, stellar peacock bass for my husband and finished with a passionate tour of the canal. This is the way to do Panama.

Much more than just a fishing outing. Jorge picked us up from the hotel and entertained us with his knowledge of Panama on our drive to Lake Gatun. A beautiful lake to be on and hear howler monkeys while fishing. Caught quite a few feisty...More
