Tamarindo
Tamarindo GU, Costa Rica

Runaway Sportfishing is a full-service charter operation running out of Tamarindo, Costa Rica. They offer half and full day trips fishing the awesome table and game species which call the area home, from Roosterfish, Jacks, and Snappers inshore to Sailfish, Tuna, Marlin, and more in the deep blue waters up to 40 miles out.

The “Runaway” in a 32’ Blackfin sportfisher which was completely overhauled in 2016 and now features enough equipment bring in any species, as well as some little luxuries to make your trip even more enjoyable.

Her comfortable interior is complete with an enclosed head, and a small galley. She has plenty of space to relax out of the sun after heavyweight billfish battles, and a folding bed for if the fish really get the better of you.

Up on deck, you will find the latest electronics and navigational equipment to get you on the fish, outriggers and downriggers to effectively target them, and a rocket launcher-style fighting chair for when you get hooked on a monster. She also has a livewell and tuna tubes to make sure that happens.

Spend a quick morning cruising the bays for some fun food fishing or a whole day offshore battling to beat your personal best against blue water beasts like Marlin and Sailfish. Whatever you do, you will have the perfect boat, the best equipment, and one of the most experienced crews around.

You can trust Captain Carlos to get you on the biggest fish wherever you are. With 20 years of charter experience and a lifetime in these local waters, he heads an all-local crew who will stop at nothing to make your fishing dreams come true.

Well, it all start it when my grandfather took me on a fishing trip on his little 15' homemade type boat when I was little. I knew then that I liked fishing and everything around it. I've been hooked on fishing ever since. All the Runaway Sportfishing team is local to the area and have been working on boats for decades.
