Looking for a professional Costa Rican sportfishing experience? Rhino Charger Sport Fishing has the answer. With over 40 years of experience of running charters in Florida and Costa Rica, Captain Rick Bergstresser has a wealth of knowledge that he and his crew are ready to share with you.
Their trips take place aboard the Rhino Charger, a 31’ Island Hopper. With a top speed of 30 knots, this boat can reach Costa Rica’s Continental Shelf in just 30 minutes. Custom designed, she has a huge 12.5’ beam, which translates into smooth, dry rides. The spacious fishing cockpit provides plenty of room for all guests.
The Rhino Charger is also the only boat in the Tamarindo fleet that has a flybridge. This provides plenty of cool shade where you can relax. Below the deck, a V-berth cabin and bathroom ensure everyone is comfortable. Extremely stable and safe, this boat is as tough as her name.
Whether you’re hoping to get your hands on one of Costa Rica’s famous Billfish, or to explore the coastal areas in search of Roosterfish, this charter will provide you with top notch sportfishing gear and know-how. Expect Shimano reels, custom rods, and Penn spinning gear, as well as an array of lures.
There are a huge number of species available in Tamarindo. As well as Billfish, you can get your hands on Mahi Mahi, Cubera Snapper, Yellowfin Tuna, Jack Crevalle, and many more. Captain Rick’s international fishing experience will give you an insight into this unique fishery and give you a fighting chance of bringing in your personal best.
Rhino Charger Sport Fishing is not only about the serious aspects of fishing, though. Instead, it’s their positive attitude and joy of fishing that makes their customers want to come back. They want you to have a good time and they will go out of their way to make sure it happens.
As Captain Rick operates out of both Costa Rica and Florida, you may fish with his colleague, Capt. Maikel, a local with over 20 years of experience.
