Capt."D" as he is better known in most fishing circles offers over 45 years of offshore blue water fishing experience. Capt. "D" has spent the past 25 years fishing Kona, Hawaii and is extremely knowledgeable in this venue and catching the pelagic fish migrating in these tropical pacific waters. Blue marlin fishing is his specialty.
Capt. Dennis Cintas is a third generation fisherman and has been fishing professionally since he turned 13 years old. Hailing from San Diego, California Dennis grew up in a world famous tuna fishing family fishing every summer with his father throughout Mexico and Central America. Dennis received his USCG captain license when he turned 18 years old and immediately got his first opportunity as skipper of a 34' Hatteras known as "Zopilote". His long career on privately owned yachts and commercial tuna boats has provided him geographical awareness of nearly every exotic fishing venue around the globe! Dennis has fished the pelagic fisheries surrounding Southern California, Baja California, Mexico, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Ecuador, Peru, Venezuela and the west coast of Africa. This world-wide fishing experience has enabled him to develop his instincts and skills to maintain a very high fish production for his clients and a reputation among his peers as one of the most successful skippers in the areas in which he has operated.
