I just spent three days fishing with Shane and Juan with my girlfriend and another couple. The fishing was incredible and everything is was represented to be.

Wonderful B-day fishing trip with my two brothers and good friend. Shane and his crew were gracious, friendly and extremely helpful. We couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable and productive fishing trip. The highlight was the 750 lbs. plus black marlin we caught. It took 3 and half hours to land. It was unfortunate we could not revive the...

The combination of Capitan Shane, his crew and an abundance of big hard fighting pelagic beasts make a first rate sports fishing charter. The boats are in top notch condition. The rods, reels and tackle are sufficient to enable any encounter from casting poppers, bait fishing & slow trolling livies to handling a wide spread of plastics and the mandatory...

Headed down to Shanes place for another wonderful fishing experience. This time I was able to get a group of guys to follow me down and see why I am hooked on SFPIL. Chased tuna for 3 days and ate like kings. You have got to go see for yourself.

All aspects of Shane's operation are first class - the boat, food, location and the variety of fishing offered. Shane is one of the best charter captains I have fished with. Very easy going and extremely flexible with regards to the plans for the day. His mate Juan, was the best mate I have encountered in all of my international...

After our arrival and stay at the Hard Rock Hotel I was struck with just how cosmopolitan Panama City really was!

Our trip out on the Gulf of Chiriqui was not only memorable but action packed. Capt. Shane worked around the unusually warm water conditions and put us on Pacific Sails and Dorado. Not only was the fishing exciting but the food and boat conditions were exceptional! I can't wait to head out again with this world class crew!

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
