Papi Chulo Sportfishing offers world-class inshore and offshore fishing trips to the most fertile fishing grounds of Costa Rica. Whether you are new to the sport, a weekend warrior, or a tournament angler, you are sure to have a gorgeous day on the water.

Hop aboard a 30’ Shamrock walkaround that accommodates up to 5 guests. There’s enough room for everybody to fish at the same time if you’re bottom fishing but you’ll need to take turns if you’re trolling. The boat has been newly renovated in 2019 and she’s now equipped with 2 315 HP Yanmar engines. She features a private toilet, bed, and refrigerator.

Staying closer to the shore will take you targeting Roosterfish, Snapper, Yellowtail Amberjack, and Grouper. These trips are usually less demanding and you can get your catch for a half day trip. Are you a big game angler? Take a full day trip and head out offshore, where you’ll target Marlin, Sailfish, Yellowtail Tuna, or Mahi Mahi. It can take more than an hour to reach these fishing spots, so you’ll need all the time you can get.

The crew will cover your fishing equipment, fresh water, and lunch. Snacks and drinks are available on the boat, 12 beers for adults and juice for kids. Don’t forget your sunscreen and a hat.

With Papi Chulo Sportfishing you’re bound to have an unforgettable day on the water. Choose your trip and get ready for a trip of a lifetime!
