Coyote Sportfishing – Coyote 10

Join Coyote Sportfishing for an incredible fishing adventure on the waters of Tamarindo, Costa Rica! Captain Chanito is a native, bilingual captain who grew up fishing in the area. He can take you fishing for a variety of inshore and offshore species while providing exceptional customer service.

You’ll fish aboard a 23’ Mako center console boat with a maximum capacity of three anglers. Powered by twin 115 HP Johnson engines, the boat is fast and reliable. It features a large Bimini top and is the perfect boat for a single angler or a couple. The boat is equipped with a GPS, a VHF radio, a fishfinder, and life jackets for safety.

Tamarindo offers great fishing whether you choose to prowl the inshore or troll the offshore waters. You can target the desirable Roosterfish, Barracuda, Snapper, Grouper, Tuna, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Marlin, and Jack Crevalle. In order to make your trip successful, Capt. Chanito will provide invaluable advice and help you in any way possible.

The crew will make sure you have a great time on your trip by providing Penn International rods, reels, tackle, and bait for fishing. They will also clean and fillet your catch, so you can take it straight to the table upon return. For your convenience, they have drinks and snacks on half-day trips, and the longer trips also include lunch.

Always with a smile on his face, Capt. Chanito will ensure you have a great day of fishing! All you need to bring is some sun protection so you can thoroughly enjoy your time under the hot Costa Rican sun.

Explore the crystal clear waters of Costa Rica with Coyote Sportfishing, and make some unforgettable memories!
