"My father Bobby Sr. came to Costa Rica from the US in the mid-1960s. He established the first charter operation in Golfito. I began fishing with him as a teenager, and I became a full captain when I was 18." Captain Bobby McGuniness has some serious bragging rights under his belt. He was chosen twice as the world's top captain by the prestigious International Game Fish Association, and has set well over 200 IGFA-approved world records. On top of this, his Marlin releases are legendary: on September 14, 2010 he released 28 Blue Marlin, along with 3 Striped Marlin and 4 Sailfish on his 37' Cazador. Come aboard his charter and experience some top-quality angling with a world-class captain!
