Nosara Sea Saw Tours – Joy Toy

Join Nosara Sea Saw Tours and explore the blue waters off the coast of Costa Rica, home to some of the most prized saltwater fish. Captain Juri Speca is an experienced guide who’ll make it his priority to show you the most productive fishing grounds.

You’ll enjoy your time on Joy Toy – a 30’ Grady White walkaround boat. It’s a classic restored in 2014. that will provide you with comfort while taking you to the fisheries in a matter of minutes. The boat can accommodate up to 8 people, and there’s a cabin with enough room for 4, as well as a private toilet.

Capt. Juri will have you fishing with brand new Penn and Shimano rods and reels. On inshore trips, you’ll go out up to 5 miles from the coast. The water gets pretty deep and there are many underwater structures home to a variety of species, so expect to target Snapper, Grouper, Roosterfish, Amberjack, and Rainbow Runner.

If you’re up for a bigger rush, head up to 20 miles out on the offshore trips, and target some big game fish. The water here gets really deep, so expect to battle some real monsters like Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, and Tuna. Feel free to customize your trips with sightseeing, dolphin tours, turtle watching, and snorkeling.

If you want to try fly fishing, the captain can accommodate it, but you should bring your own equipment. Spearfishing is another option, just let your captain know in advance. He has 3 spearguns, and he’ll take you to some great spots. The first mate is a local who can teach you how to spearfish if you’re a beginner.

Children aged 4 and up are welcome on board, so feel free to turn this into a family adventure! You’ll have food, snacks, and drinks provided on board, so all you need to bring is some sunscreen so you can fully enjoy your time.

Book Nosara Sea Saw Tours, get on board Joy Toy, and explore the fish-rich waters of Costa Rica!
