No matter what time of year you’re planning your Playa Flamingo fishing charter, something is always biting! And we’re not talking about little baitfish… Sailfish and Blue Marlin are just some of the species that the Yellowfin Sportfishing team catches 365 days a year. Sailfish are caught in incredible numbers every month, but the best time to catch the abundance of Sailfish swimming off the coast of Playa Flamingo is from May-August. The 3 species of Marlin found on the West Coast of Costa Rica are Blue Marlin, Black Marlin, and Striped Marlin. Blue Marlin are caught the most frequently, but all 3 species are caught 365 days a year. The best season to catch Blue Marlin in Playa Flamingo is from November-early March. Other species that are caught year-round are Yellowfin Tuna, Wahoo, and Mahi Mahi (Dolphin, Dorado).

We offer full day, 9hr offshore fishing charters to take advantage of Playa Flamingo’s world class billfish fishery. This allows Captain Dervin time to guide you between 16-20 miles off the coast of Playa Flamingo where there are two steep drop offs.
