Overview
More
Panamax Sailfishing is well experienced in providing a quality, offshore fishing adventure! We one of the oldest sportfishing charters in the area. Capt Tom Boice has been fishing the waters off Guatemala since 1996. We fish on a well maintained 34' center console boat with top of the line tackle. Accommodations are first rate within a secure gated community. Meals are gourmet class.

This was our second time fishing with Tom, and sometimes it's hard to duplicate a wonderful adventure but Tom did it! From the personal service to the comfortable accommodations Tom nailed it. The excellent fishing was just the icing on the cake.
