The Panama Big Game Club is owned by Two Charter boat skippers from Miami, Florida that started out to build a place to fish from after retirement. They got so excited about the location at Boca Brava, how nice they were treated by the Panamanian Government and local people, and the wild fishing experience that it grew into the CLUB.
The club is located on Isla Boca Brava, just 1 hour from Panama’s second largest city. David, Chiriqui offers all the major conveniences of most cities but moves to the slower beat of the tropics with its warm and friendly people.
