The charter boats leave out of Pez Vela Marina on
the west coast of Guatemala, about a 90 minute drive from Guatemala City. We fish aboard the
Captain Hook, a 43' Willis sportfisher. This is one of the top boats in Guatemala, and holds the
world record for the most sailfish landed in a single day, 124 sails! The captain and crew of this
boat are some the best in the world! Not only are they incredible fishermen, but they are incredible people as well. We are taken care of on the boat with plenty of cold drinks, beers, and one of the best boat lunches in the world! They also provide top of the line conventional tackle and fly equipment. Captain Hook's schedule fills up very quickly so must book this

another sailfish falls for the fly!
We have located an excellent rental house for our fishing adventures. The house is located just a few minutes from the marina in San Marino. The San Marino neighborhood is a high-end gated community on a series of canals. There is also a private black-sand beach in San Marino for swimming in the Pacific Ocean! The house is very large with 5 bedrooms and 2 living areas as well as a large outdoor area with pool. We have a private chef, a maid, and a driver while we are there. Chef Kelli will have appetizers and welcome drinks ready when we come in from fishing. The breakfasts and dinners are excellent traditional meals. All drinks, water, and beer are also included. The captain of the charter boat runs the rental property so if the boat is available, then the property is available as well. This place is just right for our fishing adventure.
