Just like 2010 and 2011, again this year the Dominican Republic is the place to be for marlin, lots of white and blue marlin around, with double digit figures each day very possible, and already happening. I am fishing out of the resort marina at Cap Cana Marina, only 7 miles from the Punta Cana International Airport, and the grounds are as close as 6 miles from the marina.
Charter rates for DR are US$1800 per day, and $2000 per day for the tournaments in May, and being a resort, has lots of golf, accommodation and activities and beautiful beaches. Check out www.MarinaCapCana.com for a look at the wonderful marina and resort.
