Why Choose Coiba Adventure?

Best Location

Beautiful uncrowded fishing territory 

Fish among many mountainous tropical Islands, uninhabited, protected and seldom visited. Many nearby deep water rocks & fish

holding pinnacles surround the islands. Pristine environments, where a great variety of gamefish flourish without commercial harvest. 

Our lodge is only 4 miles from the Coiba National Park. A group of uninhabited islands where the wild life remains abundant.

Leaving our dock, you travel past changing island coastlines to and from offshore fishing grounds.

So there is no need for running far out into the open ocean, we are always near islands even when fishing marlin & tuna.

 Isla Coiba is the largest island in Central America.

Even today, chances are when exploring 100 miles of Coiba Island coastline, we may see only a few boats of any sort, maybe none.

Classic Big Game Fishing Boat 

Joker - Isla Coiba

Joker 1969 Model 31’ Bertram

This 31 Bertram makes quick work of a marlin fight. Few boats could keep up on a marlin as well as this boat does. 

With wide-set props and short overall length, Joker can turn 360 degrees on a point in seconds.

Quickly changing directions, tracking straight in reverse. 

The Joker has lots of shaded space for spreading out.  With clear open access to a large fishing deck area,  nothing’s in the way, everything is put away; and easily accessed.
