Fished a full day charter aboard the Rainbow Runner with captain Gerard Ruiz and he will put you on fish.  Don’t let the size of this well equipped Boston Wailer full you as it fishes extremely efficient and is outfitted as needed.  My wife and I were very comfortable and Captain Ruiz couldn’t have been more accommodating.  We didn’t have to travel too far from Tamarindo to have a successful day.  You won’t be disappointed!

Our fishing experience on the Rainbow Runner was amazing! We caught mahi mahi ,rooster fish spanish mackerel and yellow fin tuna . Got a look at some leather back turtles. Gerald the captain kept working different baits whenever there was a lull in the action. We had tuna sushi a few hours later. we were on the half day charter and we couldn’t have asked for a better guide than Gerald. Thanks for a great fish story

Thanks Karen for the kind words. Gerald is one of the hardest working captains and known for catching Roosterfish. We are glad to be a part of your fishing story.

My wife and I had a wonderful time fishing with Capt Gerald. The rainbow runner is perfect for two people.  The cooler was loaded with cold drinks, fresh fruit, sandwiches and snacks.  Having caught marlin, yellowfin, mahi,  and big eye in the northeast canyons,  I selfishly only wanted to target roosterfish.  We trolled up some skipjacks after a 30 minute run and immediately put them down for baits.  Gerald bumped trolled around structure for a few hours then switched to deep dropping for grouper and snapper.  After loading up on meat, we moved back inside for another shot at the roosters.  After trolling a live skippy for another hour we decided just to head in. As a charter captain myself, if I make it back to that area I would absolutely fish with Gerald again. Thank you my friend!

Jack, thanks for fishing with us. It was a pleasure to meet you in the morning and talk shop about the great differences between your fishing area and ours. Sorry the roosters were being elusive as your target fish, but I’m very glad you had a great day with Capt. Gerald nonetheless. If you plan another visit to Tamarindo in the future, please don’t hesitate to reach out if there is anything we can do to help with your travel plans. Thanks again, Steve.

Captain Gerald was knowledgeable and did a great job leading us to our catches - 2 sail fish! It was a great first time experience for us as novices.  Would have loved it if we had been able to use the glove and hold our own fish, like we see in the pics…but overall it was exciting to reel them in.  Had to wait until past 7 am to get out, and came back 30 min early, but nothing was biting and it was getting a bit choppy.  Thanks for a great experience

Steve Curtis, his captain and crew couldn’t have been more accommodating and pleasant.  They put us on fish and worked hard to keep the four of us cranking them in. Sore arms and good times.  We’d do it again. Pura Vita. PS- there should be a a category of “very good” for rating experiences.

A fabulous day on Rainbow Runner! Capt. Gerald is super experienced fisherman! He prepared all the gear and the boat was nice and clean. He was waiting for us on dock and after short chat we started fishing. We We were so keen about fishing in Tamarindo and he answered to all our questions. All day long Capt. Gerald was giving his best and were catching well.
I recommend Capt. Gerald and Rainbow Runner to anyone!

We chartered boat “Capullo” with Capt. Steve for 5 hour trip. Unfortunately we didn’t catch a thing, not even a small fish or get a bite. It was a first time in my life that happened! We’ve been fishing around Florida, California and the Dominican and we always hooked something. It was a great dissapointment because we are used to catching a fish. Captain and first mate gave their best and we have no complaints about them, but the fish was missing.

I was searching a bit and booked fishing charter with Capt. Steve at Capullo.
Capt. Steve was waiting for us at the dock (me and my mife) and I enjoyed talking to him, but we had to get out fishing. We were trolling a bit and after some time caught my wife’s first Sailfish :) I hooked Dorado and a Pargo. We released Pargo, but had tough time doing that. Fortunatelly fish was released unharmed.

We highly recommend Capullo to anyone!

Capt. Steve and his crew really know what they’re doing! We booked Capullo for a Half Day Trip and just after fifteen minutes caught 100lbs sailfish! After that tried a bit bottom fishing and drifting targeting Mackerel and Amberjack. The result was great - 9 fish! We released two. Oh, what a day!

I highly recommend Capullo’s crew and Capt. Steve!
