Tiburon Azul

If you’re on vacation in the famous Flamingo area in Costa Rica, join Tiburon Azul and experience fishing off the coast of Playa Flamingo! The charter is operated by Valentina Peverali who fell in love with the area and decided to pursue her passion. Captain Fabrizio Tinarte has been fishing all his life, so he’ll maximize your time on these beautiful waters.

Cruise these turquoise waters on their 26’ Armador fish and ski boat. The boat can accommodate up to 6 people, 4 out of which can fish at the same time, so bring your friends and have some fun. The first mate joins in for larger parties, so you can be sure that you’re in good hands.

Capt. Fabrizio will provide all the fishing equipment, and you’ll be fishing using frozen bait. Make sure to bring a fishing license. If you want to taste the fruits of your labor upon your return home, the captain will be happy to clean your catch. You can explore the underwater world by snorkeling, since there’s always equipment on board for 6 people.

You’ll head out up to 7 miles offshore, targeting a variety of species. You can do some trolling for Mahi Mahi, King Mackerel, Roosterfish, Tuna, and Wahoo. If you’d like to do some bottom fishing, you can target Grouper, Snapper, and Amberjack.

Kids of all ages are welcome, so bring your family on a nice fishing expedition to make some amazing new memories. Life jackets will be provided for your safety, and the crew is CPR trained, so you have nothing to worry about. You can just relax and enjoy the beautiful views while reeling in some monsters!

You’ll have drinks and snacks on board, and on full day trips, you’ll get lunch as well. All you really need is some sunscreen, and you’re all set.

Book Tiburon Azul and let them take you on an unforgettable adventure in the deep waters off the coast of Costa Rica!
