Sea Star CR - 26' Sea Star I

Sea Star CR is run by a local fishing family that operates out of Playas del Coco. Join the captain on a Pacific Sea Adventure and make the most of his 25 years of experience on these waters. Our mission is to share our passion for the Costa Rican coast and responsible sport fishing. We know the best fishing spots in the area and can put you right on the fish!

You will go out aboard the “Sea Star I”, a 26’ Robalo center console. She comes powered by a 200 HP Yamaha 4-stroke outboard engine, Penn International Reels, fresh bait, and much more. Perfect for accommodating up to five adult guests, the “Sea Star I” is a comfortable touring boat with a private head, retractable roof cover for shade and rain, as well as snorkel and wakeboard gear for some fun in the water.

Sea Star CR will take you out for some unforgettable deep-sea fishing. We pride ourselves on tailoring your adventure to your wishes, and whichever specific need you may have, the crew will make it happen. You can enjoy some catch-and-release action for Sailfish and Roosterfish, as well as targeting tasty Tuna, Mackerel, Mahi-Mahi, Snapper, Wahoo, and Amberjack.

If you want to taste your catch right on board the “Sea Star I”, the crew can make ceviche or sashimi. Or you can take your catch to a local restaurant to taste it for dinner!

The trips are all-inclusive. You will be provided with quality gear and tackle, as well as bait, lures, and a license. All you need to bring is your desire to catch the fish and have fun doing it!
