It’s been a dream of mine to reel in a blue Marlin and I was finally ably with the crew on the 46 Ft boat. Great operation, extremely professional and knowledgeable team. We had a blast on our 2 day - 3 nights. The boat is in great condition, comfortable beds and working air conditioner. Staff prepared our meals and always had a beer in one hand. Thank you for the great service and helping me fight a Marlin.

Overnight fad fishing trip! We chartered the 60 ft boat for an over night trip to the FADs, our captain and first mate were top notch. Plenty of delicious food and drinks on the boat. The A/C works great and it’s a must. The day started with early action on a couple of Marlins, pretty good size, then took the afternoon for some dorado fish. I highly recommend this crew for over night fad trips. If you want to fight a Marlin this is the charter you need to try.

What is a FAD Fishing in Costa Rica?  A FAD is an object that is strategically placed on the water to attract Big Ocean Pelagic Fish, like Blue Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi-Mahi, Yellow Fin Tuna, & Skipjack Tuna.  In other words, you are fishing in waters filled with large deep sea fish.


For the FAD Charter, we have to stay overnight because of the actual FAD spot is between 100 to 120 miles from the dock.  The good news is that the FAD Fishing Boats have air conditioned cabins and offer comfortable beds to rest.


The FADs fishing trip is the hottest and most action packed out of all the fishing trips you can book while staying in Costa Rica.  On previous Costa Rica FAD charters, the fishing reports are almost double digits in terms of how many Blue Marlin were released in a single day of fishing

The interest amongst novice and avid anglers has grown tremendously for the FAD Fishing here in Costa Rica.  The main reason for this is because of the incredible results that our brought back from a FAD Fishing Tour.
