Kinefish Sportfishing And Snorkel Tours

Explore the glassy blue waters of Costa Rica with Kinefish Sportfishing and Snorkel Tours. Captain Theran Snyder runs his charter from Tamarindo, Flamingo and the surrounding beach towns. With almost 2 decades of living on the west coast, Capt. Theran is your go-to person for an incredible Pacific angling adventure.

Welcome aboard their 26’ Panga Center console, built in 2008 and newly restored in 2017. She is powered by a 140 HP Suzuki outboard four stroke engine and can reach a maximum cruising speed of 30 knots. Bring your friends and family, as the boat can easily accommodate up to 6 people.

You’ll start your trip in the morning to ensure the best “bite time.” Capt. Theran will provide you with modern Shimano and Penn fishing equipment. Once you catch the live bait, you’ll set off 10–20 miles offshore and target Snapper, Roosterfish, Jack Crevalle, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and many more.

If the weather gets too hot for fishing, Capt. has a special venture for you – snorkeling! This chance to enjoy a totally private beach is included in the price and there is no extra charge for the equipment. Take a look beneath the crystal water and a whole new world will reveal itself.

The crew will also prepare fruits, cookies, and drinks for you. After the trip your catch will be cleaned, so you can enjoy some well-earned delicious fillets. Capt. Theran and his first mate John run these trips out of pure passion for fishing. If you want to have a great time in the Pacific, Kinefish Sportfishing is your charter. Join them!
