Whether inshore or offshore, our fishing program provides the best of every world.

From off-shore, ethical catch-and-release tuna and marlin fishing programs, to finding the best spots in Panama to hook snappers, grouper and roosterfish, our team of experts will create an unforgettable fishing experience for any level.

Our protected waters are our most-valued asset and we work hard to protect them.

The Islas Secas Foundation works closely with local organizations to strengthen and enforce fisheries regulations and marine protected areas. This includes bringing Panama’s domestic fishing fleet data into the Global Fishing Watch mapping platform, providing training to the fisheries authority, and brokering a regional transparency agreement with neighboring countries.
