Marlin (Blue) Fishing in Costa Rica

The warm waters and productive reef areas of Costa Rica make excellent conditions for billfish. While Blue Marlin can be found all along the coast, you can note their migration patterns by season, with August to December seeing many Blue Marlin in the south, Jaco and Quepos experiencing high season from September to December and the northern areas of Playa Flamingo and Tamarindo most frequented by Blue Marlin from November to March.

Some of the most famous Blue Marlin fisheries include the Los Suenos marina, Golfito and Drake's Bay. Frequented also by Black Marlin and Striped Marlin, going out of Los Suenos makes it possible to achieve a billfish 'Grand Slam'.

"3/4 Day Charter "

James Hall fished with Nauti Ventures on February 29, 2020

Great time, brought in a #350 Blue Marlin and a handful of Tuna, great crew, nice boat and equipment. Would definitely recommend and go out with them again, thanks guys!

"Amazing Full Day Trip"

Donald Nixon fished with Papi Chulo Sportfishing on February 25, 2020

The crew was spectacular! They were very nice and professional! They brought us to a beautiful spot and within the first 5 minutes we caught 2 yellow fin tuna! At the end of the day we hooked a Marlin and even though our time was over they stayed out for 2 extra hours to let us fight it! I would definitely recommend this boat/crew to anyone looking for a fun and exciting day on the water!

"Great Full Day with Crew"

Alexander Sabol fished with Barrilete on July 8, 2019

Started the day by fishing for Marlin and Sailfish. We weren't able to real anything in. After that we fished for Mahi Mahi and caught 10.

"Full day fishing trip, off-shore"

Thomas Hartmann fished with Chino's Sportfishing on April 23, 2019

Did a fullday offshore trolling with Chino's Sportfishing on April 22nd. This experience was very amazing. We drilled a big blue Marlin for over 2 hours then the line was ripped off. After that we caught one yellow fin tuna and two sailfish. The crew was very friendly and experienced. I would recommend Chinos Sportfishing to anyone. Thank you very much!

"Full day."

Bill Young fished with Talking Fish - 38’ Topaz Express on November 28, 2018

Had us on the Marlin with in the 1sts two hours of fishing. Landed a 6’ 220 pounder. Caught and released. Then came the Yellow Tuna. Then the Grouper , Red fish , Mackerel and finished with a Dorado. Sorry I forgot the jack fish and Red snapper. Best day of Ocean fishing ever. Back to the snow tomorrow.

"Half day with Captain Frank "

Jerry Garcia fished with Samara Local Fishing on August 7, 2018

Definitely best fishing experience I’ve ever had. Tuna, Marlin and Sailfish couldn’t have asked for a more perfect fishing trip.
