Papagayo Fishing takes you after incredible game fish that live in the waters out of Playa Del Coco, Costa Rica. These fisheries are teeming with fish year round and the crew will help turn your day on the water into a lasting memory.
From iconic Rosterfish to Marlin and schools of Mahi offshore, you’re going to sample some of the finest specimens of sport fishing. And, you will have a knowledgeable skipper by your side, so no matter how experienced you are, you will likely have a blast.
The crew of the Papagayo Fishing has a boat fit to fish for top predators. You will be fishing from a 26’ Bertram powered by twin 225 HP Yamaha outboards. The vessel is named ‘Dream Fishing’ and sure lives up to the name—onboard you will find a selection of rods, reels, and tackle, safety gear, a toilet, fighting chair, an ice box, a live well, outriggers, and a flybridge. The vessel is fitted with GPS and a fishfinder to help get you to the fish.
Speaking of which, you can choose the species you want to target and the crew will customize the trip to your preferences. The weather and season also play a role here, as the captain doesn’t want to give you rough weather, but a pleasant fishing trip. On full day trips you will be going some 10 miles offshore chasing Mahi, while on shorter trips you will stay about 6 miles from the coast, targeting he legendary Roosterfish. Bait is mostly prepared before the trip, so you can hop onboard and focus on your main target.
Kids are welcome to join the chase and the captain will provide life jackets. The rates also cover food and drinks. On shorter trips you will have some potato chips and salsa, as well as pineapple, watermelon, water, soda, and tea, while on full day you will have some sandwiches or pasta for lunch. All the gear and tackle are provided onboard. You don’t need a fishing license. The crew can also clean the catch for you.
Pack sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, and a camera. Grab your bag, invite your friends, and hop on!
