Our boats and crew are the best options for your Tuna Fish Sportfishing charter in Costa Rica. Doesn’t matter how big your group is, we have the right boat size and budget. Rates are based on the whole boat not per person.

Now, all you have to do is find an opening in the calendar, book a trip that suits you the most, and start getting excited about your adventures in the Pacific.

All boat reservations require a non-refundable deposit + 13% tax. Reservations must be secured by a credit card thru our online booking system or even by calling Fradian M. Please read our policies

Half Day Fishing Charters

Our half-day fishing charter is our most popular fishing trip. It’s a great choice if you are looking to spend a morning or afternoon fishing instead of a full day. Because we are only a 20-35 minute boat ride to the fishing grounds. Our half-day fishing charter gives you the option to fish for fish such as; grouper, snapper, bonito, jacks, mackerel, and amberjack or run to the end of the gulf stream and fish for big game fish such as roosterfish, mahi-mahi, and tuna.

Full Day Charters

If you are looking to spend all day fishing then our full-day charter is for you. Our full-day charter gives you 8hrs of fishing from 7:30 am – 3:30 pm. We also have the option to run further North or South to the best fishing grounds in the Gulf of Papagayo. The extra time also allows us to keep our baits in the water longer, giving you the best chance at success.
