La Patrona Sportfisher

For your next vacation in Costa Rica, you’re going to want to book a trip with La Patrona Fishing Charters. Owned and operated by husband and wife Randall and Sarah Duran, they will ensure you have a fantastic day out with them! They have a team of dedicated local captains who have decades of fishing experience – they are looking forward to putting you on fish!

The day will be spent on their newly built 36’ boat with flybridge. This is a spacious and comfortable boat that is decked out with brand new safety gear and navigational features. The whole family will enjoy the ride out to the fishing grounds on board this boat. There’s even a bed if the little ones need a nap.

Each trip offers something new! The combo trip is great for mixing fishing with snorkeling. The full-day trip is perfect for heading out and targeting big game. The captain is happy to take you fishing inshore for the full day, instead of heading offshore, if that’s what you fancy.

Fishing with La Patrona Fishing Charters gives you the best chance to target Blue Marlin, White Marlin, Sailfish, Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Snapper, Grouper, and the Roosterfish – this is held in high regard in Costa Rica, and will give you a great fight!

There’s no minimum age for kids on board and life vests are provided. They’ll love the inshore trip in particular. Although lunch isn’t served on this trip, there’s not much time to eat anyway, as the action is fast paced! All the fishing gear and tackle are included in the price.

On the full day trips, a BBQ chicken and sides will be served on board, along with beer, soda, and water. You just need to bring along your sunscreen, sun hat, and swimsuit. Don’t forget to wear light layers of clothing and deck shoes.

Book a trip with La Patrona Fishing Charters today for an awesome day out on the water! You’re sure to be back time and time again!
