Sunny 1 - 32’ Maverick

Marina Los Sueños
Herradura PU, Costa Rica

Get ready for some awesome angling aboard the Sunny 1. Fish the deep blue waters of Costa Rica’s Pacific Coast in search of awesome table and game fish. Based out of the prestigious sportfishing harbor of Los Sueños
in Herradura, you will be able to enjoy awesome hookups both inshore and offshore amid the stunning natural beauty which makes this such a special place to visit.

Stay in the shallows, fishing for Snapper, Roosterfish, Jacks, and Bonito, or head further out for some real big game action. Travel up to 40 miles out to target Black, Blue, and Striped Marlin, as well as Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, Wahoo, and Yellowfin Tuna. Charters range from five to eight hours long, with great low season discounts for those who like to swim against the tide.

The Sunny 1 is a 32’ Maverick sportfisher built in 2009 and meticulously maintained ever since. The vessel is equipped with GPS and fishfinder to get you locked onto the best fishing grounds. Once there, you will have everything from outriggers and downriggers to a fighting chair and even tuna tubes to make sure you bring in some awesome fish.

The vessel is equipped with a wide range of tournament-grade tackle, with a selection of light and heavy rods and reels, and the option to troll or bottom fish the day away. If you are more into fly fishing, you will also find equipment provided for this style of fishing, although you are of course welcome to bring your own if you prefer.

The Sunny 1 crew have been guiding clients towards that fish of a lifetime for years, and Captain Walton Smith knows every trick in the book when it comes to getting you on a monster. They will work tirelessly the whole day long and will even clean and fillet your catch at the end of your trip, ready to enjoy as the perfect end to a great on the water.
