Boos Adventures - “Happy Ending”

Owned by Captain Christian Boos, one of the most sought-after surf and fishing guides of the North Pacific Coast, Boos Adventures is recognised far and wide for its exceptional customer service and its strong emphasis on safety for all its clients.

The 28 ft Happy Ending is a locally built boat that is perfect for inshore and offshore fishing, as well as surfing trips. It features a shade canopy to keep you out of the hot sun, a private bathroom, and plenty of seating for up to six people. Fully equipped with everything you need for a fun sportfishing adventure, including electronics by Garmin, the boat will take you to all the best fishing and surfing spots around Playa Flamingo.

Boos Adventures are well known both for their fishing and their surfing trips. Your trip with them could involve targeting Marlin, Wahoo, and Sailfish on a full day offshore fishing adventure, tackling the stunning and hard-fighting Roosterfish inshore, or exchanging fishing rods for board shorts and exploring two of the best surfing spots in the region: Witch’s Rock and Ollie’s Point.

Captains Christian Boos and Walter Albendaño hold records in sportfishing, and they will make sure you are always fishing the right tide, in the right conditions, and at the right spot. With thousands of trips under their belt, you can relax and know that you are in good hands.
