The Phoenix is a great fishing platform. The diesel power and hull design with prop pockets combine to provide a great riding and efficient package that has the range to go offshore. Our vessel is built for long range high speed runs to get you to the fish fast.

I can’t put it in words what a good fishing trip we had! The captain was great, the crew was great and we caught a massive Amberjack! I would recommend these guys to all my friends! Next time I’m in Costa Rica definitely going with them again!
