Places to Explore on Catamaran in Nicaragua

A holiday spent in Nicaragua is the trip of a lifetime. Even if you live here, there’s no better way to spend the day than on a catamaran, out at sea. The sunshine, salty sea air, and breeze will do wonders for your mental and physical health. You want to do more than sit around, though, and we don’t blame you. You want to enjoy some of this world-famous fishing you’ve been hearing so much about! You can’t catch a Blue Whale, although you can watch them through binoculars, but you can certainly try to reel in a blue marlin or sailfish. It’s one of the only places in the entire world where this is a realistic option. 

Nicaragua is known for some of the best fishing on Earth! San Juan del Sur is a small seaside community that’s full of fishermen. This is where we depart from. It takes several hours to go from San Juan del Sur to your chosen destination. What better way to spend the time than taking part in world-class sport fishing

Imagine your friends’ jealousy when you post a picture on social media of you holding a massive tropical fish. All of this sounds incredibly exciting. It’s no wonder you’re interested in catamaran fishing. You have a few questions beforehand, though, like can you fish right off the deck?

Is It Possible to Fish Off the Deck of a Catamaran?

Because of the way catamarans are built over two hulls instead of one, there’s more deck space than with a traditional, monohull sailboat. You and your group will have all the room you need for the activities you want, including fishing. Fishing gear is included in your package, and thanks to our catamaran’s smooth sailing style, you can fish the entire time we’re en route. Don’t think of a catamaran like a speed boat where you’re jostled around, struggling to stand up. You can easily stand, walk, and even reel in that sailfish you’ve dreamed about for so long.

You may think to yourself, “Sure the fish are out there- but what are the chances of actually catching something?” Your chances are pretty good actually! One of the most exciting news about fishing in this area of the Pacific is that the fish are plentiful. We’d nearly guarantee that our guests can get a bite within a few minutes of the bait hitting the water. If you’re worried this will be a lot of waiting around, put your mind at ease. Your fishing trip when casting off the deck of a chartered catamaran will be full of excitement! 

What Activities are Included When You Book a Catamaran Excursion with Esmeralda?

There’s so much to love about chartering a catamaran for the day or half-day. Don’t think of this as simply spending time on a boat. There are many activities to choose from while on board and once we arrive at our destination. When you book a trip on the Esmeralda, you’re also getting towels, beach balls, boogie boards, games, life vests, and so much more.

It’s hard to imagine a better way to spend your holiday. Get off dry land and enjoy some time in the fresh air, surrounded by blue skies and even bluer ocean. Once you look into this option further, it will be easy to see why the Esmeralda is so popular. It’s the best way to explore the Pacific coast of Nicaragua and get your chance to catch some of the most sought-after fish in the world! The only thing left to do is book your catamaran excursion.
