The Yellowfin – Sportfishing

The Yellowfin promises an action-packed day by taking you to some of the greatest spots in Playa Flamingo, Costa Rica. Based out of the mile-long sandy beach, you’ll have a short run to the diverse fishing grounds that offer up some true prized fish. Come aboard and get ready for the fishing adventure of a lifetime!

You’ll be greeted by Captain Dervin Suarez and his dedicated crew, who have been working out of Playa Flamingo since 2002. They’ve since built their business to a fleet of 20 boats, and promise nothing but the best service, and they hope you’ll be back time and time again for more.

Up to 5 guests are welcome aboard “The Yellowfin,” a 27’ custom-built sportfishing vessel, that comes powered by a 115 HP Yamaha engine. The boat comes fitted with everything you need for a productive and safe trip to sea, along with a private toilet for maximum comfort. Bring the whole family and take advantage of these incredible fishing grounds.

When it comes to the fishing, the crew leaves no stone unturned. Troll the open waters from the downriggers and outriggers, while you’ll also get to test your skills with the latest rods and reels. The crew knows this area like the back of their hands, and they promise to share all their secrets and tricks with you to land that prized fish.

Hit the shallow waters and go after Roosterfish, Snapper, and Jacks. Meanwhile, a trip to the deeper waters offshore will see you battle some true beasts. Get your fish on in style against Mahi Mahi, Yellowfin Tuna, Barracuda, and head back to shore with a delicious treat for dinner.

Spearfishing and snorkeling equipment is also available, and The Yellowfin crew will be happy to teach you how to use them. They’ll even clean and fillet your catch at the end of your trip, so settle in for an all-round fishing experience. Just don’t forget to bring some cash to tip the mates!

The fishing trip of your dreams awaits, so come and spice up your holiday in Costa Rica!

After I graduated from university, I started working in a diving and fishing company located in Flamingo called "The Edge." I started as a fishing mate in 2000, aboard the "Azores," a 47' Bertram and I also got certified as a PADI Open Water Diver. The fleet of Yellowfin Sportfishing is made of reliable vessels that will give anglers the speed, stability, and a chance to get the fish of their lifetime.
