Yellowfin Sportfishing – Mamacita

The Yellowfin Sportfishing team presents another luxury vessel for you to enjoy, as you embark on the fishing trip of a lifetime. Get ready to discover the rich waters of the Pacific Ocean in style, as you head out from Costa Rica’s stunning coastline to explore some even better waters.

Captain Dervin Suarez is a model professional and employs only the best captains and mates. He’s been fishing and diving professionally since 2000 and promises to make sure that you have the fishing trip of your dreams when you visit his country.

Up to 8 guests are welcome aboard the “Mamacita” – a beautiful 48’ Ocean Yacht. Restored in 2013, it boasts all the latest amenities to make sure you enjoy your trip to sea. Make yourself at home in the air-conditioned cabin that comes fitted with a toilet, bunk, kitchen, and multimedia system, while the crew will provide you with drinks and even lunch on full-day trips. 

When it comes to the fishing, no stone is left unturned, as you explore the stunning Playa Flamingo, its bay, and the open waters of the Pacific. Using the latest Penn and Shimano rods and reels, along with live bait and lures, you’ll have everything you need to land that trophy fish.

Troll the open waters or bottom fish the shallows, and settle into the fighting chair as soon as you hear the reels screech, as you’ll be in for a serious battle. Get ready to work up a sweat battling it out with Marlin, Sailfish, Tuna, Roosterfish, Wahoo, Jack Crevalle, and many more prized creatures.

You’ll even have the chance to cool off by going snorkeling closer to shore, as you discover the beauty of the underwater world too, so you’re really in for a treat. Come aboard with Yellowfin Sportfishing, and make your holiday dreams come true!

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.
