Balsa Fishing

Balsa Fishing utilizes a bamboo or palm raft to attract fast swimming fish, like mahi mahi, tuna and wahoo.

$500 - $1400/boat
4+ Hours Max 10 people

Balsa fishing is an inventive way to catch fast moving pelagic fish. We prepare an anchored bamboo or palm raft and carry it out to sea. The raft attracts smaller fish, which attract bigger game fish. Then you simply cast your bait/lure or troll nearby to catch the big game fish and hold on for the fight. It’s kind of cheating, but it works!

Balsa fishing requires two-week minimum advance booking.
