Offshore Fishing Charters in Papagayo

Offshore Fishing Charters at the Gulf of Papagayo will provide an entire day of incredible adventures, allowing you to try inshore, offshore, and bottom fishing. In this complete tour, the captain will bring you to try different types of fishing and see the vast variety of local sea life around the Peninsula Papagayo coastline. Some species you can target include Sailfish, Marlin, Bull dorado, Yellowfin Tuna, and many more!

Offshore fishing (or deep sea fishing) is any type done more than 9 miles from the shoreline. 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 more than an hour travel duration.  Larger boats, sometimes larger fish, heavy-duty equipment, and large heavy bait.

For your next fishing vacation, book a trip to Costa Rica and join a fishing trip with Tuna Fish Sportfishing. The day will be spent with our experienced captains, who have over three decades of fishing in this area – it’s safe to say they know the area intimately and will take you to the best spots to catch fish. Tuna Fish Sportfishing’s goals are to make trips child-friendly and enjoyable to all anglers on board, whether it’s your first fishing trip or your hundredth. For that reason, our boats and crew are the best options for you!

What are you waiting for? Costa Rica awaits you!!

This was an amazing experience for me and my wife. Super friendly and expert crew had us fishing in no time. Tuna, Jacks, Barracuda, and Rooster Fish. Tuna prepared for a snack on the boat and some of our catch taken to be cooked for dinner. Wonderful. We will be back with the rest of our family!!!

Great time fishing with Moses and Alex on the boat Wasabi Junior. They were on time, made everything aboard easy, and were very friendly. We caught a barracuda, a mahi mahi, and a blackfin tuna. The crew prepared ceviche on the boat and sent us home with clean fillets. Highly Recommend!

Really enjoyed going out on the La Lisa with Jose and his mate. We had a great time and caught lots of fish. The trip was highlighted with my first Roosterfish! Definitely a trip I will remember for a lifetime.

First mate and captain were very accommodating. Felt very comfortable. Landed one 43" Mahi, lost a much bigger one, and a sailfish. Nice ride home along the coast line as we dodged a storm.

My fiancé and his brother caught fish that were amongst the biggest, we all had ever seen! We were able to take enough fish home to feed at least three family and as many as 5
