I fished with Coiba Fishing Adventures on 1/20/17 for three days. When we arrived at the fishing area on the first day, we no more than put the tackle out and we had 4 out of five lines hook-up. We had three Bonita within 10 minutes and two more on in another 20. Having the marlin bait, we headed around... More

We went fishing with captain Tom to coiba. We did have a nice day great weather beautiful scenery and even caught some dorado,tuna and mackerel. On the down side the boat had engine issues. Capt Tom spent several hours trying to clear a blocked fuel filter only to delay our arrival back to 11pm. There was no experienced help aboard... More

Ridiculous, forget about it. One day out of 120 in a year, I get this guy. He came up $750 short when asked to pay. I accompanied him to shore at Santa Catalina to insure he paid up. It took another hour. A guest of poor character. I had the police on stand-by. It was a great day of fishing,... More

My wife and I fished with Tom for three days in October 2016. Two in-shore and one off-shore. The fishing was amazing! We caught tuna, Jack Carvel, Blue Trevally, Oriental Bonita, a 350lb. Bull Shark and a fantastic Black Marlin! Jerry, the mate, held nothing back. He was simply beyond what could ever have been anticipated. By the time we... More

My 2 buddies and I had a great time down in Panama at Isla Coiba in early June, 2016. The weather was great, the location was beautiful, the food was truly amazing and staff were very friendly and helpful. The fishing was slow the first 3 days, but on the last day we caught a lot of fish and many... More

We planned, booked and paid in full for this trip 8 months in advance as required by Capt. Tom. From what we saw on the website and conversations with his daughter Jessica we expected an adventure but did not expect to be slumming it. Here are the list of issues: 1. No electricity, no a/c, generator was down. They had... More

Hello Jessica I just wanted to let you know that I, we enjoyed our time with your father very much. The adventure was fantastic, from first landing on the grassy strip atop the island to the scenic cliffsides we were fishing by. The entire time spent on the island was a delightful surprise, the evening meals were comparable to many... More

If you are looking for a true fishing adventure, this is the best one ever! Just getting to the island by private plane and boat to the cove where you actually stay is just the beginning of the Coiba island fishing adventure. Captain Tom and his staff are amazing and make sure you have everything you need throughout your stay.... More

My fishing adventure on Coiba Island and surrounding waters was flawed----it was too short! I chose the 3 day/4 night option and had such a great time that I wished I had opted for a longer stay. Upon arrival I told Captain Tom my main objective was to see the whole area encompassed by the National Park, hopefully while fishing... More

Great fishing. Excellent crew and boat. From Yellow Fin Tuna, to large blue and black Marlin, Amberjack, Snapper, Grouper, and a multiplicity of other types great eating fish. The Coiba region is equally fascinating if you enjoy a little history and nature walks

Coiba Adventure Panama lives up to it's name. I had the adventure of a lifetime. The remote location of Coiba Isle just adds to the experience you can't get anywhere else. It is exotic and breathtaking. The beach is pristine and unspoiled. Our cabin was very comfortable & air conditioned at night. The staff was very friendly and brought us... More
