Circle Circle Hooker Boat

Explore Costa Rica from a different perspective with Circle Circle Hooker Boat. Captained by Fabian Amador who comes from a family of fishermen, you’ll have a great day on the water, catching tasty fish. The beaches of Costa Rica are beautiful but if you want excitement, you’ll need to go a few miles from the shore.

At Playa Herradura Puntarenas, you’ll board a 29’ Pursuit boat. This center console accommodates up to 5 guests, with enough room for everyone to fish at the same time (unless you’re trolling). She’s simple, stable, and fast enough to make the best out of your day. Whether you’re after smaller panfish or want to catch Sailfish, this boat is equipped with everything you need.

Staying closer to the shore will get you Roosterfish, Snapper, and Mackerel. If you take more time and head out further, you’ll be able to go after Sailfish, Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Barracuda, and Wahoo. Some of these species must be released back, but the ones that you can keep will be cleaned for you by the crew. Just pick a restaurant at the beach and enjoy your well-earned meal.

The crew will cover your fishing equipment, soft drinks, beer, and snacks on any trip. A full day trip comes with lunch included. If you want to take a swim, the captain can also prepare snorkeling equipment. You only need to bring sun protection and you’re ready to go.

Join Circle Circle Hooker Boat and spend a wonderful day fishing!

About the Charter Operator

Response time within an hour
Member since February 2020
Captain Fabian comes from a fishing family, so catching fish is a family tradition. He's been doing it ever he was a kid and now has over 40 years of experience. It's hard to tell what's the best part o the job because there are so many different things that make this profession special – being on the water every day, never knowing what you're going to catch, and helping people catch their dream fish.
