Papagayo Charters invites you to join them on Costa Rican angling adventures and experience the best of what the waters of Playa de Ocotal have to offer! Captain Nelson is a passionate fisherman and a dedicated captain who will get you on the best catch of your life.
Inshore or offshore trip, half day or full, it is entirely up to you to decide — your captain will take you out and show you some of the hottest fishing grounds around.
More experienced anglers that want the thrill of the chase and are eager to battle big gamefish. Billfish fans would definitely want to book an offshore trip. Pacific Sailfish, Striped or Blue Marlin are the upper crust you’ll be going after, as well as Bull Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and Roosterfish that won’t go down without a fight.
Go on an inshore trip when you’re in the mood to admire the gorgeous coastline of Costa Rica and want to hook anything from Amberjack and Red Snapper, to Bonito and Jack Crevalle. Your little ones will have lots of fun on these trips too, so bring them along for a fishing outing to remember.
Your ride for the day is the “Tuna Fish” — a 30’ Phoenix Tournament Yacht made of fiberglass, powered by a 450 HP Cummins engine. The vessel is fully equipped to take up to 5 anglers fishing, built for long-range high-speed runs to get you on the fish fast.
Fishing gear that includes rods, reels, tackle, live bait, and lures will wait for you on board. Snorkeling equipment is also available upon request, in case it gets too hot from being face to gills with the fish. Bottled water, sodas, and snacks are also provided, as well as lunch on full day trips.
Want your impressive catch cleaned? Capt. Nelson’s first mate will take care of that for you, and help you out throughout the trip, so tipping him at the end of it is encouraged.
Let Papagayo Charters take you on your next fishing trip and you’ll have such a great time, that you’ll always be back for more!
