Mad Marlin SPORTFISHING The Ultimate Sport Fishing Adventure GUATEMALA

The rates for fishing in Guatemala vary greatly.  Potential charter fishing trip clients have a lot to consider when choosing a deep sea fishing trip.  Clients can choose to have a 4 star all-inclusive VIP fishing and lodging trip in a range of $2000-$5000 per day for a group of four (not per person).  Daily Charter rates range roughly from $1300-$2500 or more per day for a group of 1-4 persons.  Except for the bargain basement prices offered by a handful of operations, the fishing part of a charter is pretty much the same, with good boats and experienced crews.  Those offering cut-rate prices tend to offer lesser quality boats and, due to the high cost of fuel, will often not run far off shore if that is where the bite is occurring because they have no margin and will lose money on the charter.  In short, for the most part, it is true that you get what you pay for.

You should always evaluate:

  • Photos of the boat
  • Is the boat up to date and not a relic of the past
  • How much fishing room (many big expensive boats have little fishing room)
  • Photos of any accommodations (if choosing all-inclusive)
  • Ask if the boat had single engine or twin diesels
  • Are engines inboard or outboard
  • What electronics the boat has on board to aid your search for fish
  • Is the boat air conditioned
  • Are there add-on charges for various things such as liquor at the lodge, villa, hotel, or resort
  • Is there a full toilet and shower on the boat (not just a tiny marine head or bucket.
  • What food and drink is provided on the boat? (hot or cold lunch)
  • The size of the boat has nothing to do with the number of fish caught or released.  Crews communicate with each other and those with radar can see where a group of boats congregate.  So, most boats end up fishing in the same or nearby places during a fishing day.

 

As you can see from these questions, the answers to them and your choices reflect in the price of the charter.  What may seem a great discount price may not seem like such a bargain if you catch fewer fish, are uncomfortable the entire trip, or the food is terrible.
