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'.

What People Are Saying About Marlin (Blue) Fishing in Costa Rica

"Full Day out of Los Suenos"

Derek Moss fished with Sportfishing on the Predator on March 5, 2019

Can’t say enough good things. Capt and mate worked hard all day to put us on the fish. 5 sails, 1 marlin and 1 mahi. Others boats didn’t have much luck that day from what we were told. 5 star!

"Full Day with Jeff Pursley on Miss Behavin "

Kasey Bethel fished with Miss Behav’in Sportfishing on February 23, 2019

Amazing day on the water. Captain, first mate, tackle, and boat are top knotch. Caught a blue marlin and two sailfish on a day when moon still pretty full and many boats struggled. Wasn't expecting to get a really great lunch. After fishing with other crews that didn't speak much English, was nice to have Jeff who is willing to explain and teach.
