Boos Adventures is recognized far and wide for its exceptional customer service and its strong emphasis on safety for all its clients. Captain Christian Boos is one of the most sought-after surf and fishing guides of the North Pacific Coast. He invites you to join him in exploring the amazing fishery out of Playa Flamingo.

You’ll be spending your day aboard a 22’ Sea Hunt that’s perfect for inshore and offshore fishing, as well as surfing trips. It features a shade canopy to keep you out of the hot sun, a private bathroom, and room for up to 5 people.

The boat is fully equipped with everything you need for a fun sportfishing adventure. It features electronics by Simrad, and it will take you to all the best fishing and surfing spots in the area in the blink of an eye.

The crew is well known both for their fishing and their surfing trips. Your trip with him could involve targeting Marlin, Wahoo, and Sailfish on a full day offshore fishing adventure, tackling the stunning and hard-fighting Roosterfish inshore, or exchanging fishing rods for board shorts and exploring two of the best surfing spots in the region – Witch’s Rock and Ollie’s Point.

Captains Christian Boos and Walter Albendaño hold records in sportfishing, and they will make sure you are always fishing the right tide, in the right conditions, and at the right spot. With thousands of trips under their belt, you can relax and know that you are in good hands.

Explore the crystal clear waters off the coast of Costa Rica with Boos Adventures, and have an unforgettable time!
