Boos Adventures - 27 ft Panga

Playa Flamingo
Playa Flamingo GU, Costa Rica

Boos Adventures Fishing Charters is your one stop shop for fishing and surfing in and around the waterside paradise of Flamingo, Costa Rica. These waters are among the world’s top destinations for sportfishing, and Captain Chris Boos is a well-regarded local captain who knows how to help you get hooked.

Chris Boos has two boats that are versatile enough to take you fishing both inshore and offshore. At 27 ft, this one is perfect for small groups of people and families who want to have fun together. Featuring an extensive shade canopy to protect you from the rays, this boat is comfortable and very typical of the local boats that have been used to catch fish in these waters for generations. With Garmin electronics and a powerful Suzuki engine, this fast vessel takes a traditional design into the 21st century.

Whether you choose to fish inshore or offshore, you will have a wide array of potential fish species to target. Inshore fishing is best for targeting Costa Rica’s most infamous and unusual looking predator: the Roosterfish, who’s stunning ‘mane’ will definitely turn heads. That’s not all you can catch on a short trip though: inshore fishing can also yield delicious Snappers, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and Jack Crevalle, all of which can be caught around the beautiful islands close to Flamingo’s coastline.

True adventurers can take their fishing excursion with Boos Adventures Fishing Charters one step further. As Flamingo is situated extremely close to the Pacific Continental Shelf, deep water is very accessible. It is here that you can catch Costa Rica’s prize game fish - the Sailfish - as well as Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and Marlin. Not only are these waters very productive, they are also usually calmer than other world class fishing destinations, making catching the biggest fish of your life very possible.

All trips include soft drinks, fresh fruit, and chips with dip, while full day trips also include tuna sandwiches. Please feel free to bring your own alcoholic beverages.

We wanted to catch rooster fish and the crew got us 3 in the morning on live bait, but nothing big.  Because of low tide we then went off shore and surprisingly caught a nice big yellow fin tuna.  Then went back inshore in afternoon to try again for a rooster fish, but unfortunately the bait was mostly dead and did not catch any more.

Paul I was especting this bad review from you , you wan to catch rooster fish and you catch and release 3/3 ROOSTER FISH and you are compleiting because of the size? you have to be kidding me, also a really big yellow fin tuna plus mahi mahi and still compleiting INSANE .... People like you are impossible to please and I recomend next time to go sailing, because is really easy to see that you are focus on the negative thing ONLY l, and you review will afect my company and the familys plus the 9 kids that because of this company can eat

And if any REAL FISHIMAN that UNDESTEND the ocean read this will be laugh at you BECAUSE WE CANT CONTROL THE OCEAN and the SIZE of fish that we catch
