If you’re looking for a day of fishing with lots of action there is no better place than Sierpe, one of the best places for recreational or sportfishing in Costa Rica. There’s a huge diversity of fish species, which guarantees excellent fishing throughout the year. Book a trip with Tours Sierpe CR to best capitalize on this excellent fishery.

Edgardo has been running Tours Sierpe CR since 2017 and has years of experience in the area. With your local captain on board, you can maneuver the difficult mouth of the river. On the day of your trip, Edgardo will be his first companion on board.

The day will be spent on a 26’ Mako center console. The boat offers great maneuverability, so you can follow your fish around the boat once caught. There is a T-top for some shade, and 2 refrigerators on board: one for the catch, and one for the snacks you should bring along.

You can choose to fish in the wetlands of Sierpe, the mouth of the Sierpe River or in the crystalline salt waters of the Pacific Ocean. Even beginners can fish the ocean, as you’ll head out a maximum of 14 miles from shore.

The species that you can capture vary according to the trip you choose. On the river trips, you can target species such as Mangrove Snapper, Corvina, Snook, Goliath Grouper, Catfish, Tarpon, plus more. Towards the coast, you will find the powerful Roosterfish, Yellowfin Tuna, Spanish Mackerel, Barracuda, Almaco Jack, Grouper, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, and more!

The price includes high-quality rods and reels from Penn, Daiwa, and Shimano. When live bait is used, this will also be included in the trip price. Sometimes this is defined before the trip, sometimes during, it depends entirely on the season. Drinks are also provided. You can bring along extra snacks, which can go inside the captain’s refrigerator.

You should wear light layers, with a long-sleeved t-shirt, deck shoes, and a hat. Don’t forget your sunscreen!

    In our trip on the high seas, your objective will be Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, and Tuna of medium or large size. Trolling is the best technique for these fish, and the built-in stabilizer will greatly increase your chances of catching them. Billfish are protected, so we will practice catch and release, if you want to bring something to eat, we will look for Mahi or prickly pears, on the way back we can look for other species such as Snappes, Grouper, and Mackerel that are frequently found.
