Cacique Sportfishing Flamingo

Cacique Sportfishing is a fishing charter based out of Playa Flamingo, Costa Rica. It’s owned by William Moran, a local fisherman and captain who’s passionate about his work. He will be your perfect guide and make sure to put you on fish and exceed your expectations.

Your boat for the day will be a 22’ custom center console panga, equipped with everything you need for a fun trip on the water. This includes a fishfinder by Garmin and other navigational gear, reliable safety equipment, and a Yamaha V6 engine. On board, you’ll also find outriggers, downriggers, snorkeling gear, a live bait tank, and an ice-box.

The Flamingo area around the Catalina Islands is famous as one of Costa Rica’s – and the world’s – best fishing spots. In these bountiful inshore and nearshore waters, you can catch superstars such as Sailfish, Yellowfin and Skipjack Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Amberjack, Barracuda, Jack Crevalle, Snapper, and more. Get ready for some epic bottom fishing, trolling, spinning, jigging, popping, and even traditional handlining.

The charter covers all the needed fishing gear, live bait (when possible), and lures. Fresh fruit, chips, water, and soft drinks are included on all trips, while lunch is provided on full day trips. Catch cleaning is also complimentary.

All the fishing trips can be personalized according to your needs and wishes – just talk to the captain about it in advance and he’ll make it happen!

I started first fishing at a commercial fishing boat. This quickly became my passion, and I turned it into my work. Since I was 16, I've been working on catamaran boats, big and small fishing charters. After that, I decided to start my own business in 2015. My mission is accomplished when my client leaves the boat and tells me, "William, you are the man!"
