These tours take you into the Papagayo Gulf, located along the Nicoya Peninsula’s northern portion. The fishing here is good year-round and you can hook the blue marlin, striped marlin, sailfish, roosterfish, 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.
