ShoreTrips says...

Costa Rican waters rank among the Pacific Ocean's best for fishing. Whether you're a first time angler or an experienced fisherman, you'll find an abundance of fish waiting for your line.

Step aboard this roomy, well-appointed boat for an exhilarating half-day sport fishing adventure. Guanacaste's world-class fishing grounds are located just 5-10 nautical miles from shore and with a select fishing boat, you'll arrive at the fishing grounds quickly and in comfort. Your experienced local captain knows these waters well and will provide knowledge and assistance to ensure your day on the water is an exciting, memorable experience.

The Gulf of Papagayo's rich waters are home to an abundant variety and quantity of fish species, including the roosterfish. This feisty fish can grow to 4 ft long and weigh up to 100 pounds and will provide a thrilling fishing experience. To keep their population strong please release your roosterfish once you have taken your trophy photo.

Amberjack, wahoo, mackerel, snapper, tuna and bonito are also plentiful, and odds are you'll soon have a strike and a bit of action ahead of you.

If your goal is to experience the thrill of the fight, you might choose catch and release. Or, if you prefer, you are welcome to take your catch home for a delicious meal.

Snorkel gear is available on the boat in case someone in your group would like to explore the undersea world. The snorkel stop would be in a different location than the fishing location.
