Can't thank Capt Shane and the crew enough for the week we spent on Isla Parida. Really a great experience. From the time we stepped off of the plane in Panama City to the time we left Panama, we were taken care of by friendly and professional people.
The fishing was great with Capt Shane really knowing the territory. He was able to hook me up with a 200+ lb Blue Marlin that was a real treat to catch. TOP Cat was a great boat with excellent equipment and a nice stable platform to fish from. The lodge was clean, well kept and a great place to relax after a day of fishing. And the food, what can I say? Lise is an amazing cook and really listened to what we were interested in eating and set us up.
Can't say enough about this trip and would recommend booking a trip to this island paradise to anyone that asks.
Thanks a lot Shane!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Sport Fish Panama Island Lodge is a boutique offshore tropical island sport fishing lodge located on Isla Parida in the Gulf of Chiriqui, Panama. Fly into the city of David, in the Chiriqui Providence, travel by boat 12 miles off the Pacific coastline and you will find Isla Parida....an untouched jungle paradise that is a protected national park. Our private island lodge is inside Panama's Gulf of Chiriqui National Marine Park and is truly "off the grid." No roads, no concrete, just jungle and white sand beaches. Sportfishing, snorkeling, sea kayaking, hike, or just hang out on one of our deserted beaches. Sportfishing here in the Gulf of Chiriqui is legendary! Black Marlin and Yellowfin Tuna are encountered offshore at Hannibal Bank, Coiba, and Isla Montuosa all only minutes away. Inshore prey such as Cubera Snapper and Roosterfish are caught in the water right in front of the lodge! We specialize in an upscale sportfishing experience with great food, personalized service, accommodations, and highly maintained boats and equipment. ... more less
