Kingpin Sportfishing - Kingpin II

Playa Tamarindo
Tamarindo GU, Costa Rica

Kingpin Sportfishing specializes in big game charters for giant Pelagics. Concentrating on Sailfish and Blue Marlin, they can also put you on Mahi Mahi, Yellowfin Tuna, Black Marlin, and Striped Marlin. Bottom fishing for Grouper and Roosterfish are also on the menu!

The crew enjoys showing all the beautiful things you can find in the pristine Pacific waters – there are sea turtles, whales, dolphins, and more. Their 28’ Carolina Classic boat is called the ‘Kingpin II’ and comes powered by twin Cummins Turbo Diesel engines. She is outfitted with the latest navigational electronics, safety equipment, and communications systems. The Kingpin II will get you to and from the fishing grounds quickly and comfortably.

Once on board, you will find a full cabin with a private head, a lot of shade, and a Marlin tower. All the necessary rods, reels, tackle, bait, and lures will be provided for the trip. Snacks and drinks, such as beer, water, and sodas, will also be available on board.

Kingpin Sportfishing is conveniently located in Playa Tamarindo, less than half an hour ride from the Liberia airport.

Please note, that in order to respect the ocean, all Billfish will need to be put back into the water.
