Patron Ocean Experience

Patron Ocean Experience connects anglers of all levels of expertise to the Pacific Ocean, departing out of Playas Del Coco, Costa Rica. It’s hard to disagree that no visit to Costa Rica can be complete without a trip out on the ocean. And if there is a chance to fish with the locals, like the locals, it becomes even better.

Patron Ocean Experience has something to offer for anyone, be it bottom fishing, deep sea fishing, surfing or just a sunset tour. Test the waters in and around the Peninsula Papagayo, take a dip in the calm sapphire waters of the bay, count the shades of gold, silver, orange, and pink when watching the sun go down, or battle with the waves at Witch’s Rock or Ollie’s Point.

Check the bite near the reefs and head further offshore for something bigger. Bottom fish, spin, and troll for a variety of species that call the local waters home. Target Yellowfin Tuna, Red Snapper, Mahi-Mahi, Roosterfish, King Mackerel, Grouper, Amberjack, Mangrove Snapper, Snook, and Wahoo.

Take your friends and fishing buddies and hop onboard the “El Patron”. She is a newly up-hauled 31’ Grady White boat with two powerful 250 HP Yamaha outboard engines, hydraulic system, stainless steel props, state-of-the-art navigational electronics, and many other professional accessories. With speakers, LED lights, and ample cushion seatings to get the party going, El Patron is the master of the seas and ultimate comfort. Inside, there is a bathroom, which is a much-needed thing when spending a day on the water.

Patron Ocean Experience proves that there are few activities better than a day or two on the ocean. You will be provided with everything you can possibly need for a fun and productive day out. The crew will offer fruit and snacks on half-days and a picnic lunch on full days. Beer and soft drinks are included in the price, as well as license, quality gear, tackle, and snorkeling equipment. Surf board rentals are charged separately so as a National Park Entry Fee.
