Sportfishing on the Predator

Sportfishing on the Predator is your ticket to a memorable angling experience in Costa Rica. Located at the world famous Los Sueños Marina in Herradura, the Predator and its bilingual crew will show you where to find the best fishing spots around!

The boat itself is a 28’ Shamrock Express that runs on a single 275 HP Cummins engine. She’s got all the necessary safety gear and navigation electronics to ensure you have a safe and productive day on the water. There’s room on the boat for up to 4 anglers, so be sure to bring some friends along for the ride.

The available trip options will allow you to enjoy the amazing fishing accessible from Herradura Bay. This will usually start with targeting Roosterfish inshore, and then moving further out after Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, and even the area’s most sought-after game fish, the Blue Marlin. If this isn’t enough, you can also try bottom fishing for tasty Snapper, Grouper, and anything else you might find in the deep waters.

All the necessary rods, reels, and terminal tackle will come included in the price of any given trip. With snacks and drinks also included on board, this is the place to come to enjoy an all inclusive sportfishing vacation in the sun!
