Flamingo Sportfishing – Tamarindo

Flamingo Sportfishing invites you to explore Costa Rica in style while fishing some of the best inshore and offshore locations in the country. With a team of professional local anglers running the show, rest assured you’ll be in safe hands. These stunning waters are open to you regardless of your skill level – all anglers are welcome!

Your boat for the day will be a 32’ Blackfin offshore sportfisher that’s outfitted with a pair of 315 HP Cummins engines. Since the only thing better than fishing is fishing in comfort, you can be sure this vessel was made with that in mind. She sports plenty of room for up to 6 anglers to go fishing and has a toilet that comes in handy during longer trips.

The kind of fishing you’ll be doing out here is completely up to you and your preferences. Shorter trips are ideal if you’re looking to check out the inshore waters that hold species like Roosterfish and Spanish Mackerel. Those who’ve set their sights on a bigger catch should definitely spend a day offshore. You’ll have your hands full with the likes of Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Sailfish, Marlin, and others.

The Flamingo Sportfishing crew will provide you with everything you’ll need for a fun day out. This not only includes fishing gear, but also sandwiches on longer trips and catch cleaning services after the trip. Snorkeling equipment can also be made available if you let the captain know in advance. So come on down and make you fishing dreams come true!
