Overview

Papagayo Gulf Sport Fishing - North Pacific Tours is a fully licensed and insured fishing company ready to take you out for a full day or half day of fishing. Snorkeling and Surfing to Witches and Ollie's Point is also available. We offer a wide variety of fishing options in the Papagayo Gulf: inshore, offshore, coastal, bottom, casting, fly and spear fishing. If you are looking to save money or prefer not to fish alone, Lisa can arrange a split-charter with other fisherman/woman looking for the same. Captain Daniel has over 40 years of fishing experience and his mate Mauricio, fluent in English, has over 20 years. These guys love to fish and are fishing professionals. We now have a GoPro camera to film your fishing adventure in which Lisa can cut/edit your video to be posted on Youtube. Snorkeling can be included at the end of your fishing trip at no additional cost. This is a great tour for the entire family to explore the beautiful Pacific Ocean. Costa Rica sport fishing is known worldwide as one of the greatest sport fishing/surfing destination plus the weather is great almost all year round. For the intermediate and experienced surfer, trips to Witches Rock and Ollie's are offered with a guide. We look forward to hearing from you. Pura Vida!

We had such an amazing day with Mauricio! The boat was perfect for the 8 of us. We saw turtles and dolphins before spending the day at a postcard perfect beach! Already looking forward to the next trip!

So cool you were able to bring my fish home, especially yellow fin! Prior to freezing your fish, you need to be certain there is no water, blood or skin on the fish. If there is, you'll end up with stinky and fishy tasting fish....More
