Costa Rica Sport Fishing And Spearfishing

Booking Costa Rica Sport and Spearfishing Tours will give you the freedom to customize your own adventure. Join experienced Captain Hugo Cantellops and explore the beautiful nature of this part of the world.

Get on board his 24’ Mako center console boat powered by a Johnson 225 HP engine. The boat can accommodate up to 8 anglers, so you can bring your family and friends to have some fun together. There’s navigational equipment on board so you’ll be on the fish at all times.

You’ll be fishing using Penn and Shimano rods and reels, and there’s Riffe and Beuchat spearfishing equipment if you’re feeling adventurous. You’re in good hands with Capt. Hugo and there’s a variety of techniques to choose from depending on your target fish.

Go out on the water in the early morning or in the afternoon, and target different species, including Mahi Mahi, Roosterfish, and Wahoo. The captain is a local, and he’ll make sure to take you to the best grounds depending on the conditions.

You can make your own custom adventure, and combine sport fishing with snorkeling, snuba, and surfing. You can do some whale and dolphin watching enjoying the beautiful views.

Children of all ages are welcome, so bring your whole family and make some great memories with your kids. Life jackets will be provided in all sizes, so you don’t have to worry about safety.

The crew will provide fruit, snacks, lunch (a sandwich and fruit), and drinks (water, soda, six-pack beer) on every trip. You’re welcome to bring anything else you’d like since there’s a cooler on board.

Don’t forget some sunscreen, bring your adventurous spirit, and get ready to have some fun in Costa Rica!
