Fun in the Sun Sportfishing Nosara

Garza Bay
Nosara GU, Costa Rica

Fun in the Sun Sportfishing is located in the beautiful Nosara district of Costa Rica, just minutes away from some incredible fishing and surfing spots. They offer a full range of trips to suit you, offering surfing, snorkeling, diving, sunset tours, and of course, fishing. Whatever you want to do, their custom trips will be able to suit your needs.

Spend the day aboard a 28’ Costa center console built in 2008. This modern vessel was built to make the most of these waters. Her shady T-top keeps the tropical sun at bay, while her front rail keeps you and your party safe. The vessel is stable enough to get offshore in search of Marlin and Sailfish but she can still get into the bays in search of Roosterfish.

Even on a half day trip, you’ll be able to enjoy some big game hookups in the deep waters just a stone’s throw from shore. Head out on a full day trip, and you can take on Blue and Striped Marlin, fearsome Pacific Sailfish, Yellowfin Tuna, and so much more. You can also split your time between the bay and the bluewaters to really get the most out of the area.

Try out a range of fishing techniques on your trip. Trolling, bottom fishing, spinning, popping, even fly fishing – whatever you do, you’ll find quality equipment waiting onboard. That means rods, reels, tackle, bait, lures, and flies – all you need is a license. On top of all this, you’ll get a tasty lunch and a range of refreshments to keep you going.

Captain Howard Abshere has thought of everything so you don’t have to. He can tailor every trip to your wants and needs and will be on hand to keep you hooked up all day long. So head down to Garza Bay, get onto the water, and enjoy your very own day of Fun in the Sun!
