Sea Hunter 1

Sea Hunter 1 invites you on fishing trips out of Playa Flamingo. These fisheries offer exciting fishing year-round and you can hope to catch your next Roosterfish and Sailfish right there, alongside Tuna, Snapper, Jack Crevalle, Bonito, Mahi Mahi, and much more.

You will be fishing from a 30’ custom-built center console that can take up to six anglers. The boat is powered by a pair of new Mercury engines of 150 HP. The boat features navigational instruments, including GPS and a fishfinder. Onboard you will also find freshwater, a cooler, a bathroom, a variety of fishing rods, Penn reels, outriggers and downriggers. The vessel is fit to make your trip memorable and productive.

These trips are great for more experienced anglers and beginners alike. The crew will take good care of anglers onboard and you will get to target a rich variety of species. The fishing grounds are so rich that even a half day trip can yield the hard-hitting Mahi Mahi and other game fish.

Depending on the weather, your trip can take you between 16 and 24 miles offshore. However, in case of strong winds, the crew will take care of your safety and you will be fishing up to seven miles from the coastline.

If you want a longer trip, the crew can accommodate you and your party as you set out to get Sailfish or spend a whole day exploring these grounds. And remember to bring a camera to get a good shot of your catch and the marine life!

The crew will provide all the rods, reels, and tackle. They will also prepare the bait before the trip, so you can head straight to the fishing grounds. They will take care of the fishing license as well, so all you have to do is come and enjoy the chase. Families with kids are welcome.

There will be some snacks and drinks onboard, included in the price, but feel free to bring food and drinks of choice. You will also want to bring sunscreen, a cap, and sunglasses.

'I really like the ocean. I like its space and tranquility. I like fishing and feeling the fish fighting on a fishing rod. For me, it's sport that interests me.' The crew of the Sea Hunter has a decade of experience fishing the waters of Costa Rica. Having moved from Europe to Costa Rica twenty years ago, the captain has spent a lot of time learning about the local fisheries and knows how to put you on fish. They have been fishing out of Flamingo since 2011.
