I wanted an inshore trip to pursue Rooster Fish. The weather conditions were bad with very high winds. In retrospect, I should have rescheduled the trip. We fished live bait for the majority of the trip and had no bites. We did some trolling and caught a Bonito and Jack Crevalle.

We had a great and successful Fishing trip. There were 4 of us and we wanted to fish Off Shore. We caught 4 good six Mahi Mahi. We were staying at the Riu Guanacaste and they came to the beach & picked us up. The food they served on the boat was very nice and so was the presentation. The mate Franklin also worked in a restaurant so everything he made was very nice. We let the crew keep most of the fish but we kept one of the large fillets and had the chef at our hotel prepare it for us that night. It was delicious. I have no problem recommending the 29’ Dusky. It is an older boat and has done plenty of fishing but it was comfortable and did the job.

From start to finish everything was excellent!  Our skipper Warren and deckhand Franklin knew what they were doing and we are so hospitable . Erika arranged everything and it was so easy to work with !  I have finished all over the world and this was one of the best! 10/10!

What a great crew!  Erika the captain was so accommodating to our needs.  Picked us (4) up from our hotel/resort.  She usually is picking up from Flamingo Bay/Marina but came to us with the boat to be picked up at a closer location for our party (4) which was at Coco Beach.  The crew Erick and Florisimo was helpful and so much fun.  Erika put Warren in charge of captain on our boat and he knew where to fish.  I have fished in many places Alaska, Key West Florida, Monterey Bay, Texas lakes and coastline, this fishing charter is top notch!

The crew was the best.  They did everything possible to help us catch our fish.  I personally hooked up with a big (450 lb) black marlin.  What a fight!  One of our guys caught his first sailfish ever.  Another one caught a sizeable Dorado which we had for dinner.  The fourth guy only got to catch small fish while bottom fishing but he was happy.  The bottom fish provided us and others with a great dinner.  The Red Tide probably hurt our catch.  We usually catch numerous sails and Dorado.  It was still a good experience.

The crew were great and worked very hard to help us catch fish.  We brought home a yummy mahi and my husband got to catch the rooster fish he really wanted to catch.

The boat was a perfect size   Big enough to handle the water yet small enough for speed from point a to b. Captian and crew were great. Always trying to get you fish.

Fish where not biting but that happens sometimes. Captain and mate good, but not great. Equipment ok, outriggers didn’t release line on two hits.  Worst part of trip was getting on boat heading out and seeing sign indicating crew expect 20% tip. That’s $150. If this is the norm it should be posted on website and noted at booking.  I paid for an 8 hours trip which included a crew I thought, the crew should be paid out of the trip cost not out of an expected tip.  In-fair to the crew Tipping is an optional practice which has become excepted or demanded in many settings,  Guess in quit charter fishing.

One of the highlights of my Costa Rican vacation was fishing with flamingo sports fishing. Very professional well-maintained boat.

Crew was great. Very easy to make reservation even at last minute. Unfortunately no fish were caught in 4 hours on the water.
