Captain Robin Blanco started in the fishing world as a young man when he took part in the Golfito family business. It grew in him a passion for life on the sea, especially in sport fishing. Captain Robin was awarded with a World Angling Record for a catch of the heaviest Roosterfish (21.3 kg / 47 lb 0 oz) in an approved line class category (Tippet M-10 kg / 20 lb) by the International Game Fish Association.

With over 15 years of professional experience, Captain Robin Blanco is a great choice to lead your next fishing trip. If you prefer a more laid back experience, he is knowledgeable of the gulf’s best places for seeking out great views or the perfect spots for whale and dolphin watching.
