You will be accompanied by two mates who are bilingual and will teach you various techniques such as using light and heavy tackle, bottom fishing, and trolling, or even fly fishing if you wish to bring your own gear. Their half and full day trips can take you fishing nearshore up to 10 miles out targeting Grouper, Snapper, Roosterfish and more, or up to 35 miles offshore hunting Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Yellowfin Tuna, Wahoo, and others. The Costa Rica Dreams crew practice a strict catch and release policy for all Billfish.

About the Charter Operator

Costa Rica Dreams Sportfishing
Herradura, Puntarenas, Costa Rica
Member since May 2016
I grew up in Alaska, mostly fishing Salmon and Halibut, and have fished offshore, rivers and lakes for over 20 years. I moved to Seattle where I lived for another +20 years, continuing to fish for Salmon and Halibut, along with a lot of Dungeness Crab in our 40' Meridian. For work, I traveled all over the world and fished Asia, Europe, Middle East and all over Latin America & the Caribbean, where I fished every chance I had. I always found myself enjoying fishing for Marlin & Sailfish due to the pure beauty of these fish, and the fight they would put on. After my wife and I retired, we picked up and moved to Costa Rica to chase our passion. Today we now own 5 charter boats based out of the Los Suenos Marina here in Herradura, Costa Rica. - Captain Rich Roberts
