Captain Maikel Jesus Gutierrez is a 3rd-generation angler. Having fished pretty much every day of his life, he decided to buy a boat and go further out on his own. He can’t wait to show you his native fishing grounds, sharing his knowledge and passion with you.
Up to 5 guests are welcome aboard the 27’ Apex saltwater fishing boat to make yourselves at home. Fitted with comfortable seating and a private toilet, you’ll have nothing to worry about. Sit back and relax as the captain and his first mate serve you fruit, traditional snacks, and sodas and beer. On full day trips, you’ll even have a full lunch!
Boasting downriggers and outriggers, she’s also a serious fishing vessel. The crew will set up the trolling lines for you to lure some beasts offshore, while you’ll also bottom fish the reefs nearshore. Work up a sweat battling it out with the tough-fighting fish and cool off by donning the snorkeling gear and discovering the magical world under the water.
Nearshore trips will see you go head-to-head with impressive Snappers, Groupers, and exotic Roosterfish. Head offshore, and you’ll battle some of the world’s most prized big game fish. Test your skills and strength against monstrous Marlin and stunning Sailfish, all the while trying to fill the boat with delicious Tuna and Mahi Mahi!
At the end of your trip, the crew will clean and prepare your catch for you to take back to shore for a tasty treat. Let your captain know if you need a transfer, and he’ll arrange a taxi for you. All your needs, and more, are taken care of with Chavo Sportfishing. Come aboard for a thrilling Costa Rican fishing experience!
