Maryola Tours

What better way to spend the day than to go fishing in the beautiful waters out of Tamarindo? Join Maryola Tours and experience the adventure you’ll remember for a long time. This charter is family-owned and operated by Captain Daniel and his wife. They are friendly, patient, and knowledgeable, and welcome anglers of all skill levels on their trips.

You will be picked up on the Tamarindo beach in front of the restaurant El Chiringuito. The boat you’ll be fishing from is a 27’ Liston boat that accommodates up to 4 guests. This offshore boat is powered by a 90 HP Yamaha engine and reaches the speed of 15 knots. She’s powered with navigational electronics, a cooler, and snorkeling equipment.

Head out to deep seawater and do both trolling and deep-sea fishing depending on the weather conditions and where the bait is. Target Barracuda, Marlin, Sailfish, Tuna, Amberjack, and many other offshore predators. If you prefer to stay closer to the shore, you can go after Roosterfish, Cubera Snapper, Mackerel, and more. You will be back around 11 am hopefully with freshly caught lunch!

Everything you need for a great day of fishing is included such as complete fishing equipment, cold drinks (beer, soft drinks, water), and snacks.

Catch your lunch, have fun, and relax with Maryola Tours!
