Just returned from Punta Cana, we stayed in Sirenis resort. We booked a fishing trip and were taken to Bavaro, about an hour transfer. The first time we tried they picked us up and we arrived at the Beach only to find that the trip had been cancelled because of the wind. So that was a wasted day, we then tried again a couple of days later with some success.

We used a guy called Ronaldo. The first boat we boarded wouldnt start so we ended up being transferred to another after about 40 minutes.

Once we got out, Rob my partner caught a Barracuda, we had only been out about 20 minutes. However..........that was it. 4 hours of trawling around with only one bite. We had planned on doing another trip, but we didn't think it was worth it.

Hope you have more success!!

We are going to be in PC during 2/12-2/18. It doesn't sound like there is too much going on there right now but if you don't set your hopes up you can enjoy the boat ride. Also, you can do a group boat at about $90 p.p. or charter a boat for about $400 half day and $800 full day. We haven't decided if it will be worth that investment based upon earlier reviews.
