Deep Sea Fishing or Local Bottom Fishing


The sport fishing tours operate on the Northwest coast of Costa Rica.  Here lies the legendary gulf of Papagayo, world famous as one of the  best fishing spots on earth.  This natural fish trap, is rimmed by the Bat and Catalina Islands and home to sailfish, blue, black and striped marlin, giant yellow fin tuna, Wahoo, dorado, and roosterfish.
We are fortunate to have highly experienced, English-speaking captains that have successfully been fishing these waters for many years.  We offer all-day and half-day deep-sea trips, as well as local trips. Due to the speed of our boats, we can fish the Bat Islands on half-day trips, if that is where the fish are that day.  We aren't happy unless you are catching fish!
Our all-day deep-sea trips include lunch, soft drinks, and beer.  Our moderate rates are among the most reasonable in the country.  Our goal is to offer clients the greatest value for their fishing dollar.
