Primarily, offshore fishing (or deep sea fishing) is defined as any type of fishing done more than 9 miles from the shore line. When you’re deep sea fishing, you’re usually pretty far from land…roughly 20-30 miles out, in waters that are hundreds or even thousands of feet deep. Hence the name “deep sea fishing.” Offshore fishing charters have longer distances and travel duration. Larger boats and sometimes larger fish, heavy-duty equipment and large heavy bait.
All our offshore fishing charters have a duration time of 8 hours (7:30 a.m – 3:30 p.m). Offshore fishing offers a chance to experience Costa Rica charter fishing. The Gulf of Papagayo is one of top fishing destination in Guanacaste, Costa Rica. In the waters of the Gulf of Papagayo you can target large fish such as blue or striped marlin, pacific sailfish, bulk mahi mahi, yellowfin tuna, and giant wahoo.

What we fish for
Pacific Sailfish are 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.
Peak months for Yellowfin Tuna are typically August through October, but you can find them any time of the year. The yellowfin tuna 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. We frequently find concentrations of 40 to 60 pound tuna
Tuna Fish Sportfishing Reviews
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.
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.
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.
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

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
Loved the charter and would definitely do it again!! The crew was excellent and knowledgeable about the area. Asked what we wanted to catch, and we did!!
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!
We did not catch anything big, but we caught some fish. We had a blast with the crew, nice boat and perfect weather.
