Panama has always been a top destination for those seeking extraordinary fishing and Panama Big Game Fishing Club has existed as an established destination since 2001, and in 2011 it was bought by Mark Charman (Mr. C!) who had the vision of turning it into the top big game fishing destination not only in Panama, but in the whole of Central America and to be in the “Top 10 in the World”. Judging by the accolades, awards and prolific media coverage he has succeeded in his ambition.
Being an avid saltwater fisherman since the age of 4 and a keen fly fisherman he has spent the past 25 years travelling the world in search of Marlin and Sailfish and the largest pelagic species he could find. He knows how to cater for the tastes of the fanatical fisherman in search of Monsterfish and after a hard days fishing, being spoiled with the kind of 5-6 star luxury seldom found outside of less remote locations. Mr “C” has built the Club adding in all of the top of the line luxuries that all of the other lodges left out.
Quite simply the PBGFC is a cut above every other fishing lodge you have ever visited,and gets better upon each and every visit, as the improvement and upgrade program never stops”. As Mr “C” says ” Real excellence is a is a journey and never a final destination”
The accommodation is 5 star with all modern benefits and the fishing boats (nearly all twin-diesel sports fishing boats) are superb for fast travel to the prolific fishing grounds with local and very experienced crews.
Isla Boca Brava could not be described adequately without a real visit. Set on an island in the rain forest off the coast of Panama it has an abundance of wild life . Parrot species flock by and Howler Monkey troops inhabit the tree canopies. All of this can be seen from the luxurious restaurant and its three bars with its all round views of the ocean and the forest. All of the meals provided by our superb Executive Chef and accompanying drinks are inclusive as are transfers to and from Panama City airport.
On the ocean the fishing can provide whatever the fisherman desires from gigantic Black or Blue Marlin to Tuna, Dorado, Roosterfish, Wahoo, Cubera Snappers and Tarpon to name just a few. On the journey to the fishing grounds it is not uncommon to see Whales and, of course, Dolphins and also Turtles.
On rest days, or for non-fishing guests, there are alternative activities, many organized and private tours and trips. Or just “chill” by the infinity pool and be pampered by our attentive staff, enjoy a relaxing massage in the Spa or explore and discover one of the many places to relax throughout the resort.
The perfect way to spend a day for avid fisherman and guests alike and in the evening relax over a gourmet meal and enjoy a glass of the finest wine while discussing your days adventures with your friends and fellow guests then to your superbly appointed cabina to rest in peace and quiet until the next exciting day begins.
Come and join us for the experience of a lifetime and see just how a 5 star experience is possible 300ft up on the top of a hill on a Panamanian jungle Island.!
