“We had a great time!!”

“Both the captain and the mate were awesome, and next time we are in Costa Rica we will be fishing with your group. Thank you for everything we love your country!!”
  – Pablo Corral

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

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!
Christine Fruechte
We had a fantastic day and experience — saw whales, dolphins, and turtles too. We will come back again and fish with you. Hopefully within the next few years. Thank you so much for setting this up, truly, a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
