Background
This is a local fishing family. Michael is the owner and will be your point of contact while planning your trip. Captain Ronald and his First Mate Gerald will be on board to handle the boat, prep, and service for your day at sea. As they would put it, "we are bringing over 25 years of local and professional fishing experience to Sea Star CR. Our passion is to share the beautiful coast of Costa Rica and allow you to get to know the area as we do. Let us know your particular goals for your trip, and we'll make it happen. Pura Vida!"
Techniques
I use live bait.
