Rhino Charger Sport Fishing

Embark on the ultimate Costa Rican sportfishing adventure with Rhino Charger Sport Fishing. Captain Maikel Rodriguez or Captain Victor Suazo are your seasoned guides. Get ready to reel in the thrill of a lifetime as you discover the secrets of Costa Rican sportfishing with one of these expert captains by your side.

Come 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, and the flybridge 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. Your captain’s expertise will give you an insight into this unique fishery and give you a fighting chance to bring 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.

Captain Maikel Rodriguez or Captain Victor Suazo, backed by more than 20 years of experience, are ready to impart their wealth of knowledge and ensure an unforgettable journey on the open seas.
