trip description for Guatemala Suite Package in Puerto Quetzal

What sounds better than waking up in a luxurious resort on the Pacific coast with a boat ready to take you to some world-class billfishing? Let us know if you think of anything, because we sure can't! This all-inclusive experience with Captain Ozzy can best be described as the dream vacation for avid anglers looking to catch some serious big game fish. This trip consists of 3 full days of fishing and 4 nights of lodging. The Pacific coast of Guatemala features some of the world’s most consistently calm billfishing waters. This fishing haven is known as one of the best Sailfishing spots in the world, where anglers can get 15 to 20 bites a day and up to 40 bites a day during peak season (October through June). The top boats catch and release over 2,000 Sailfish a year! While Sailfish is the main attraction, in these waters you can also reel in some massive Tuna and Marlins. If you're looking to break your personal record, this trip is for you! On this trip you'll be fishing an area called the “Pocket”, a deep underwater canyon that is 30 Nm wide. Most days Captain Ozzy will start you just 12 to 15 miles offshore on the tip of the canyon, but he may run you as far as 40 miles out if that’s what it takes to put you on the fish. Once out on the water, you'll be going for Sailfish, Blue Marlin, Striped Marlin, Black Marlin and more. 300 to 600 pounds is average for these massive Blue Marlin. In recent years it has not been uncommon for the best captains to raise 4 or more marlin in a day! Marlin can be caught year round in Guatemala, and are especially good to fish in September through December. You'll be targeting these fish using various methods such as light tackle, heavy tackle, bottom fishing, trolling and jigging. Whatever fish you want to go after, Captain Ozzy will get you set up with the best method! You can even choose to fly fish if you wish. For billfish, expect to use artificial teasers and naked rigged natural bait such as ballyhoo. Quality is ensured with Shimano 20 to 50 pound class stand-up tackle. Guatemala is a world leader in conservation and all bait is rigged with circle hooks. All billfishing is Catch and Release Only, ensuring this fishing “hot spot” remains the angler’s choice destination for many years to come. With the "Performance Package," Captain Ozzy will take up to 4 anglers to the offshore waters in his 32' Blackfin sportfisher powered by Twin Cat’s 3208 engines. With a cruising speed of 22 knots, this hefty vessel will keep you comfortable on the way to the deep waters. She comes equipped with all the basic amenities. You can also opt for a 31' Bertram with Twin Cummins 6BTA engines, a cruising speed of 23 knots, and all the basic amenities. Captain Ozzy makes sure all his boats are meticulously maintained for your comfort and safety. Expect top of the line gear and tackle and a world-class crew, with each boat featuring an experienced Captain and two excellent mates. Fishing trips will run from 7:00am to 4:30pm. During the day your crew will serve you a hot lunch, snacks and fresh fruit. They will also prepare fresh Ceviche or Sashimi right in the galley! Beer, rum/vodka, sodas, Gatorade and bottled water will all be provided. It's safe to say the resort-class luxury does not stop when you get on the boat! **Lodging** With this package, you'll be staying in an air conditioned suite with 2 queen beds and a bathroom. It comes furnished with a desk, lounge chair, and flat screen TV with SKY Satellite Service (English programming). Daily laundry service and Hi speed Wi-Fi Internet service throughout the Resort are also included. **Bar and Restaurant** This all-Inclusive dining experience includes a full a-la-carte breakfast, gourmet Dinner Menu featuring an international cuisine, and all the beer, wine and local & imported spirits you want! Enjoy breakfasts by the pool consisting of fresh fruit, cereal, pancakes, eggs cooked to order, fresh roasted Guatemalan coffee and freshly squeezed orange or pineapple juice. Fresh seafood with the local seasonings as well as impressive cuts of prime steaks are offered for dinner. Appetizers, entrees and desserts are all part of your dining experience. **Transportation** English-speaking drivers greet you at the Guatemalan International Airport in a luxury passenger van upon your arrival. In it, a cooler filled with sodas and beer will quench your thirst on the drive down to the Resort. If your flight arrives mid-day, you'll have the option to tour Antigua Guatemala on the way to the Resort. You will be driven south to Iztapa, Escuintla for about 90 minutes on a four-lane highway. Getting out of the city you may see some traffic, but after that it will be a very comfortable drive amongst volcanoes, sugar plantations and a very picturesque background. Read More

Most days Captain Ozzy will start you just 12 to 15 miles offshore on the tip of the canyon, but he may run you as far as 40 miles out if that’s what it takes to put you on the fish. Once out on the water, you'll be going for Sailfish, Blue Marlin, Striped Marlin, Black Marlin and more. 300 to 600 pounds is average for these massive Blue Marlin. In recent years it has not been uncommon for the best captains to raise 4 or more marlin in a day! Marlin can be caught year round in Guatemala, and are especially good to fish in September through December. You'll be targeting these fish using various methods such as light tackle, heavy tackle, bottom fishing, trolling and jigging. Whatever fish you want to go after, Captain Ozzy will get you set up with the best method! You can even choose to fly fish if you wish. For billfish, expect to use artificial teasers and naked rigged natural bait such as ballyhoo. Quality is ensured with Shimano 20 to 50 pound class stand-up tackle. Guatemala is a world leader in conservation and all bait is rigged with circle hooks. All billfishing is Catch and Release Only, ensuring this fishing “hot spot” remains the angler’s choice destination for many years to come. Fishing trips will run from 7:00am to 4:30pm. During the day your crew will serve you a hot lunch, snacks and fresh fruit. They will also prepare fresh Ceviche or Sashimi right in the galley! Beer, rum/vodka, sodas, Gatorade and bottled water will all be provided. It's safe to say the resort-class luxury does not stop when you get on the boat! **Boat Packages** With the "Standard Package," Captain Ozzy will take up to 4 anglers to the offshore waters in his Catamaran sportfisher powered by twin Suzuki 4 Stroke 250HP Engines. With a cruising speed of 38 knots, this zippy vessel will get you out to the deep waters in no time. She comes equipped with all the basic amenities as well as a cabin with a full size bed.
