Ask the captain to explain what the plan was, we were unsure so asked. We did some inshore fishing. They help hook fish and you reel it in. They knew the spots and were excellent at fishing. Recommend the crew and boat.

You should wear protective clothing. We got burnt up pretty good would wear long sleeves, pants and hat to shade face, neck and plenty of sunscreen. If you don't want to be embarrassed tack on 20% of trip price (what you pay captain) for tip.

If you’re really into catching lots of fish you should book for Costa Rica trip around the time that particular fish is running. We had hoped for tuna, but this wasn’t the time to catch tuna. Communication with the captain is essential. We were very happy with the Mahi we caught.

Sunscreen and hydration!!! Surprisingly, there were no bugs this time of year. Finally, sun protection and water!!! The sun here is no joke. Long pants and sleeves are best. And a good hat and glasses.

The Mahi were big; there were many sailfish (we had a dozen sailfish hits/fought fish/could see them bite on surface and/or jump), but they would throw the hook before getting them to boat or not hookup long. First time sailfishing for us, so we are not experienced in fishing for them (but we do a lot of fishing). Some were huge too. We were only fishing 19 miles offshore.

Bring some cash (American dollars are fine) to provide tips to the captains taking you out to the fishing boat, and as a tip to the deck hands. Make sure to bring sunscreen and a buff to protect your face/ears, it's very sunny!

We live in Florida so we go on a lot of fishing tours. This one was by far the best one we have ever been on. We caught a rooster fish that was 70 pounds a sea bass that was 50 pounds of a huge pompano and two very large snapper four hours, these boys more than their job and we are so grateful. We will definitely be back in June when we come back.

Caught a few sailfish on an offshore trip. Didn’t have luck with yellowfin or dorado but that will happen sometimes. Can’t control the fish. Had a fun time catching sailfish and seeing spinner dolphins.

We had expectations when we went. Didn’t know how realistic they were. This crew knows where the mahi mahi are for sure! We got three in the boat plus a black tuna. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience or crew. Highly recommend!!!

Riccado and Christian run a top notch operation. From start to finish, they didn’t miss a detail. From a prompt pickup, to a delicious homemade lunch, cold beer, and a spotless boat, they worked hard to ensure the day was perfect. They both put their heart into getting fish on and helping us bring them in. They celebrated each catch with us with joy and laughter. We were sent back with fish for our hotel to prep for dinner. It was the best day! Thanks Riccardo and Christian! We will be back!

We had a great fishing trip on the Relaxer boat. The crew was very committed to finding and catching fish. Unfortunately, the first fish were lost. I did manage to land a sailfish shortly before the end. Our boat was repeatedly accompanied by dolphins and sea turtles. All in all, great hours on a beautiful boat.

Everything went as expected. The crew was there on time (at 7am) and was very helpful. They asked us what our preferences were in terms of types of fish we wanted to catch, and they delivered. We caught several very large sailfish. The boat was a good size and we felt comfortable and safe at all times. So overall, no regrets. We would recommend them strongly and we would use them again.

My wife and I had a great time. The captain is a great guy, the experience was enjoyable. He got us to a spot, and we were able to catch to great tasting red snapper. The other boats weren’t having any luck catching anything, so I feel pretty lucky! The boat leaves a little to be desired if you’re wanting a more comfortable experience. But, a nicer boat doesn’t make the fish bite better!
