Charter fishing in Golfito, Costa Rica is THE best way to spend a day (or few!) of your Costa Rican vacation. After your first rod-bending Marlin fight, we’re sure you’ll agree! The beauty of the mountainous, undisturbed jungles of Golfito are second to none, but our claim to fame is the abundance of both offshore and inshore fishing opportunities. Come aboard our 31’ Bertram charter fishing boat and experience first-hand what all the buzz is about!
Perhaps the most appealing aspect of the Golfito fishing seasons is that the fishing opportunities are abundant all year long. Each species does have its own unique peak season, but there’s an assortment of “Bucket List” fish being caught every month of every year off the coast of Golfito. Maybe you’re looking to hook up on one of the 3 species of Costa Rican Marlin? Striped Marlin, Blue Marlin, and Black Marlin are caught the most frequently between the months of October-January. Believe it or not, Marlin actually are caught year-round, but they don’t match the numbers produced during peak season. Other fish species we hook up on while trolling offshore are: Sailfish, 50+lb Mahi Mahi (Dolphin), Wahoo, and Yellowfin Tuna.
The inshore fishing in Golfito is no slouch either… Let us help you hook up on, pound for pound, the hardest fighting fish in Costa Rica- Roosterfish. These exciting gamefish are commonly found near underwater structures such as reefs and wrecks, and are caught consistently 365 days a year. Other inshore species we commonly catch are: Grouper, Snapper (Red Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, and Cubera Snapper), and Snook.
We offer both half day trips and full day, 8hr fishing packages. If you’re not pressed on time, we highly recommend our full day fishing package. You didn’t travel to Golfito, Costa Rica to get a “taste” of our world-renowned fishery, you came to make the most of it! Our full day package allows time to cover more ground to hit a variety of our “Honey Holes”. No matter which trip you decide to book, your trip cost includes: a first mate, drinks+snacks (we’ll provide lunch for full day fishing trips), use of our finest tackle (Accurate, Shimano, Penn International), and we’ll fillet the day’s catch at the end of the trip so you can bring home a fresh dinner!
Our 31’ Bertram, built for fishing, was completely refurbished in 2006. New engines, electronics, interior amenities, and outriggers are just a few of the upgrades made to our charter boat. There’s also a “hi-def” fish finder, “waas” GPS, and a variety of safety equipment on board. Our roomy cockpit allows us to fish up to 4 anglers comfortably.
We custom tailor every trip to meet YOUR needs! Bring your friends, family, and youngsters on a fishing charter you’ll never forget. You tell us which fish you wish to catch, and we’ll make it happen! Your friends back home won’t believe the pictures you’ll be able to show them… That rod-bending, trophy sized Roosterfish won’t wait around forever- Book today!
