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

"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.

"Full Day = Great Day!"

Sarah Dougherty fished with Fish On Sportfishing on July 12, 2018

Great day on the Fish On. We didn’t want to bottom fish so we trolled and caught Mahi and Wahoo. Huge Marlin came up about 20’ behind the boat which was awesome. We are avid offshore boaters and really enjoyed this trip. Kendar put us on fish.

"Best Captain & Best Day Fishing!"

Gina Hunt fished with Circle Hook Sportfishing on April 10, 2018

Based up recommendation, I pick Circle Hook’s Captain D! Let me say, it was the best day of offshore Fishing! 2 Sailfish and 1-Black Marlin at 350lbs. Both fishes are being mounted and I will be booking again! Anyone interested in a clean boat, great crew, and best Captain - pick Circle Hook! Will be going back in Fall and February.
