TUNA FISH SPORTFISHING
Tuna Fish Sportfishing is a company located in the North Pacific Coast in the Guanacaste Region of Costa Rica that specializes exclusively in Papagayo fishing charters. The beautiful landscape of Guanacaste, the world-class fishing waters, and surrounding National Parks make us a must visit global vacation destination. Our charter boats cater to all major hotels and resorts: Four Seasons, Andaz Hotel, Exclusive Resorts, Villa Sola Playa Hermosa, Occidental Grand Papagayo, Allegro Papagayo, Mangroove Resort, Bosque del Mar, Riu Guanacaste, Riu Palace, to mention a few. We also welcome visitors staying around the Papagayo Gulf area, such as Playa Hermosa, Playa Panama, Playa del Coco, Playa Ocotal, and Flamingo.
These tours take you into the Papagayo Gulf, which is located along the northern portion of the Nicoya Peninsula. The fishing here is good year-round and you have the chance to hook blue marlin, striped marlin, sailfish, rooster fish, dorado (mahi-mahi), wahoo, red snapper, and yellowfin tuna. The best time to catch each type of fish varies depending on the season, but rest assured that you have a great chance of landing several fish.
While you’re out on the water you might also be able to see humpback whales and dolphins. There’s nothing like seeing dolphins jump through the waves or watching a humpback whale swim alongside its calf across the gulf.

Tuna Fish Sportfishing Reviews
The crew was so nice and accommodating…..we caught a nice sailfish and just had a beautiful day on the water! They fed us a nice lunch and it was a perfect day. Highly recommend this charter service!
We did not catch anything big, but we caught some fish. We had a blast with the crew, nice boat and perfect weather.
Fished on the Tuna Fish boat. The capt. And crew put me on fish right away. All worked very hard trying everything in the book to get a Sailfish in the boat for me. The first mate was always on the move, checking and changing things up. Thanks guys, see you next year.
We booked the Charter over the internet before leaving the States. They picked us up from the beach at our resort on time just as advertised. We seen some of the most beautiful scenery while we were trolling. We caught 12 blue fin tuna and 2 big roster fish. Captain spoke English and very polite and friendly. Crew was very friendly and did their jobs perfectly. Great time, caught fish, and drank beer. What a great day fishing. Will do it again for sure.
I am so glad we did this. My wife and I came down to the gulf of Papagayo for our honeymoon and decided after being here a day that we really wanted to try our hand at fishing. Fradian wasn’t phased by the short notice and found us a boat in no time at all. He also made it extremely easy to pay and he was great with communication. Completely satisfied with the day.
Thank you Fradian!, We had an amazing day of fishing!. Our guide and the captain knew just where the mahi mahi and tuna were biting. A great day was had by all. We will be contacting you again in our next Costa Rica fishing trip!
Thank you. Very happy. The crew was very good and friendly. My wife felt so sick and they went out of their way to make her feel comfortable and she ended up feeling better. We ended up catching 6 bonitos, 1 rooster and 1 nice jack. Thank you very much and I will be back in a year to get a bigger rooster.
My wife and I came down for our honeymoon to secrets in papagayo Costa Rica. We decided to book a fishing trip on one of the days we were staying here and we booked la huida with Noel “nito” and Armando. They were waiting for us at the beach at 730 am like they had told us with a clean well maintained boat. We took the boat about 45 minutes out and began trolling for mahi mahi, meanwhile we started trolling we saw a pod of dolphins which made the wife very happy! It took us an hour or so of trolling to get into the fish and we were able to land 3 mahi mahi by the end of the day. My wife is not into fishing but they helped her land the largest of what we caught which is pretty cool of them. If you are staying at any of the larger hotels they will keep what you caught cold and set you up with a cooler for a small fee to bring it home with you. All in all it was a lot of fun and I would do it again. May 20 2019
The Captain and Mate were amazing! They worked seamlessly. Every fish on a line the Mate was very precise on his instructions to make sure we landed it. Without the Captain and Mate’s instructions on how to land a 400# marlin it may not have happened. This was a trip of a lifetime. Next year i will definitely book the Tuna Fish with the same crew. Thanks Captain Misael and Mate Romorio for the Best boat on the Pacific! Until next time, Pura Vida!. July 30th 2019
Tuna fish sportfishing fulfilled my dream ! I went to Costa Rica to catch Sailfish and we caught three. Nelson is a great Captain and the mate was equally as good. I highly recommend them to all that ask
