Full Day (inshore & BBQ)

$1300 USD + 13 % Tax

Time : 8 hours

Price Includes:

  • Snacks, soda, water, beer, fresh fruit and Beef Jerky are included for all excursions.
  • Beach BBQ – Chicken, Beef, Fish, Grilled Veggies, Salads, Corn and Buns.

ALL deposits received are NON-REFUNDABLE. There is travel insurance available that covers deposits for excursions etc. should your trip be cancelled.

Your trip will include: use of rods, reels, bait/lures. Snacks, drinks, water and cold beer supplied. Boats are licensed & insured and Coast Guard inspected annually per Costa Rican fishing laws.
Due to recent changes by Incopesca, the governing body of the Sport Fishing Industry in Costa Rica, you are now required to have your own fishing licenses as opposed to generic 30-day licenses we used to be able to purchase and provide for our guests. They are requiring each passenger to have one and carry their passport while on charter for verification. If the Coast Guard boards your charter and you do not have the license or are unable to verify your identity in accordance with the license, your charter will be directed back to shore.
Here is the link to the Incopesca website page where you can purchase your licenses for $15/guest. It is secure and a government website.

Our primary concern is conservation. Catch­-and­-release is practiced on all billfish; with food species the practice is catch whatever you can eat and release the rest.The Captain and deckhands are great fishermen and will work hard to help you catch fish. Our eco­-friendly approach to fishing and commitment to the environment are a priority. Conservation of our natural resources is the only way to allow for future generations to enjoy these waters. If you are fishing offshore and catch tuna, mahi mahi or wahoo the crew will filet your catch and have it ready for you to take with you by the time your arrive back at the marina. Several local restaurants will gladly prepare your fresh fish for you for dinner, too!

Our captain or deckhands on the boat make their money by receiving tips. It is customary in the charter fishing business to tip the crew. Crew tips in are usually 10­-20%. All tips are split equally among the crew (captain and mates). Simply leave one tip with the captain and he will distribute it with the other crew members. You may also charge crew tips on a credit card if you like!

As long as the boat is going out, we’ll be there waiting for you to join us. Captains appreciate that no one wants to fish in a downpour or to be on the ocean in dangerous conditions and they have great leniency in that regard as safety is a top priority. For a casual, passing shower or brief delay, however, we expect you to be ready for a great day of fishing!

What Do We Fish For In Costa Rica?

Marlin

Caught every month of the year with June, July and August being exceptional, then slowing a bit from October into early January when it picks up again. We catch Blue, Striped and Black Marlin.

Yellow Fin Tuna

The Yellowfin fishery has exploded since the trawlers were forced to at least 20 miles offshore. We now have a world class, rear-round Tuna Fishery. The yellowfin and some bigeye tuna are often found well inside the Catalina Islands, 30 minutes or less running time from the beach, while schools of 12 to 20 pounders are usually abundant on the outside. You frequently find concentrations of 40 to 60 pound tuna. Several over 100 and 200 pounds are caught every year!

Sailfish

Dream On Sportfishing

Caught throughout the year in our Northern Waters with May through August normally being the top months. They begin to thin out around October/November

Wahoo

Dream On Sportfishing Wahoo

The first showing begins about the time the rains start in May, peaking in July and August. Most are caught around the rocky points and islands, but you will pick one up occasionally fishing offshore.

Dorado-Mahi Mahi

More properly known as green dolphin or Mahi Mahi, these colorful gamesters are most abundant from late May through October when the seasonal rains flood the rivers, carrying out debris that forms trash lines close inshore that they like to lie under. Troll past a floating log and you’ll likely hook a dorado.

Roosterfish

Available all year but plentiful from November through March, likely due to boats in the northernmost area of this region fishing inshore during those windy months – the roosters like the structure of the shoreline and islands, where they’re found as deep as 50 to 60 feet of water
