Reel Deal Sportfishing

Fishing in Costa Rica is really something that needs to be experienced to be believed. The crystal clear waters, range of fish species, and friendly locals all combine to make your time here incredible. The cherry on top? Fishing with Reel Deal Sportfishing. The crew have nearly 3 decades of experience between them and will make sure you have a great day out on the water.

You and 5 friends will spend the day on board a 33’ Strike Yacht, perfect for offshore fishing. Recently restored, this beauty is ready to go when you are. There are 3 factors which will keep you on the fish all day. Firstly, the vessel is outfitted with twin Cummins 370 HP engines.  Secondly, Captain Johnny and his first mate – these guys are locals and know the best places to take you for the most productive fishing trip. Thirdly, the impressive navigational equipment, including fishfinder. With all of these combined, it’s no wonder you’ll spend the day with your lines in the water reeling in plenty of fish.

The shorter trip is perfect for those that want to try inshore fishing. This trip doesn’t include lunch, but between the snacks, drinks, and reeling in Red Snapper, Wahoo, Spanish Mackerel and more, there won’t be time to think about food!

Capt. Tanti’s specialty is fishing for Marlin – he isn’t called the Marlin Master for nothing! The 9-hour trip is ideal if you want to try your hand at hooking in these incredible billfish, including Blue, Black, and Striped Marlin.

Everyone is welcome on board, and with no minimum age, you can bring the whole family with you. Capt. Tanti is happy to try a range of techniques with you, and find your perfect fishing style. For those that have been fishing a while, you can try your hand at fly fishing. Due to the space restrictions, only one person can fly fish at a time.

There’s no time like the present, so book now and have an amazing fishing adventure with Reel Deal Sportfishing. You won’t be disappointed!

Captain Arturo (Chompy) has nearly 2 decades of experience as a professional fisherman. He used to be the mate on this boat and is now its proud captain. On the deck, you will see that he is a whirlwind of energy. He has an infectious smile, especially when hooking a Marlin – these big boys are his specialty and Capt. Tanti loves fishing for them. He is definitely the Marlin Master! You are sure to have a great fishing adventure with him. Sam Hobson owns Reel Deal Sportfishing, and is an enthusiastic outdoorsman with a passion for client service. Your day on his boat will be superb!
