What People Are Saying About Sailfish Fishing in Costa Rica

"Full day offshore March 10th"

Richard Poole fished with Flamingo Sportfishing – 32’ on March 11, 2020

Top notch experience, got us hooked up with a very big Wahoo and a decent sized Sailfish as well. Captain and crew worked hard to put us on the fish and to make sure we were taken care of. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a serious charter!

"Great Crew!! Great fishing trip!! Highly recommend!"

Luis Vasquez fished with Runaway Sportfishing - Jaco on February 21, 2020

Full day of fishing. Caught 3 tuna, 1 sail fish and 1 mahi mahi on a day that seemed fairly slow for everyone. Carlos and his crew made my fishing trip a very memorable one. Thank you Carlos for helping me cross catching a Sailfish off my bucket list. Already planning my next trip. See you in July.

"Full day trip for billfish"

Joseph Karbowiak fished with JP Sportfishing Tours - Sea Lady on February 10, 2020

Xavier and Bryner were awesome, put me on the fish! Caught 3 nice Sailfish and lost 3 others. Great day! Highly recommend!

"2 Bucket List Fish Checked Off!"

Norman Knoche fished with Fish On Sportfishing on May 15, 2019

One of the best fishing trips we've been on. Large, comfortable ship. Super friendly, helpful and attentive deckhands and captain. They made our experience really enjoyable. Caught a large Mahi Mahi that we took to El Hicaco to have them cook for us - some of the best fish we've ever eaten. And a large Sailfish that we let back in, but it was quite a day!

"All day wiht Skeet"

Barry James fished with Bushwacker Sportfishing on February 11, 2019

Three Sailfish and 6 Mahi-Mahi. What a day. He suggested this time of year was better offshore than inshore and was he right. Great captain and crew. Took very good care of us and communicated well with us too.

"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.
