I have fished all over and have never fished with a captain that is as serious as Skeet is about fishing. His operation is like a well oiled machine. I would recommend this trip to anyone who enjoys good fishing, great equipment, and a very personable skipper.

Booked an all day offshore trip with two families with children (11-16 YO). Boat leaves from Playa Flamingo (about 10 minutes from Westin Paradisus/30 minutes from Tamarindo/1 hour from Liberia) and is cleanest/nicest boat in the area. Capt Skeet is from Georgia USA and is organized, methodical, and 100% professional. Boat is 45' Bertram - runs great, cold AC in... More

We booked two days with Captain Skeet and the Bushwacker and was very impressed. I have had a bad run of unsuccessful fishing trips over the last couple of years so I decided to do more research and get the best for my family vacation and fishing adventures this year. We found the best, Bushwacker produced 2 large Marlins and... More

My wife and I recently went fishing on the Bushwacker. We caught four sailfish and an estimated 375 lb. marlin in June of 2015. Skeet is a super nice guy and highly knowledgeable when it comes to fishing. All reels were Shimano and if you know much about fishing you know that’s a name you can trust. Crewmembers names are...

My son-in-law and I spent a full day with Capt Skeet and crew in pursuit of marlin and sailfish. Conditions weren't ideal and radio reports indicated little success on other boats. Skeet and crew worked hard to locate the baitfish and ultimately we landed a large marlin and three sailfish. The boat and the equipment were maintained in excellent condition.... More

Just got back from sailfishing with Skeet and his crew. Six men caught six sailfish in one full day of fishing.The "Bushwacker" had plenty of room to accommodate our group. I would highly recommend that you ride up top with Skeet so that you may enjoy the beaultiful views of the Pacific and the coastline of Costa Rica. We must... More

The Buschwacker is a great and comfortable boat for the uncertain conditions of the waters off of Costa Rica. And Captain Skeet isn't afraid to run the boat to find the fish. Being an American captain, there's never a language barrier. While our day was considered slower than usual, I did catch my first sailfish which was awesome.

Prior to my first trip to Costa Rica, I emailed about 8 or 9 different charter boats as I have had some bad (and scary) offshore experiences in my life - This happened when I didn't realize how important this research was. I decided to go with Capt. Skeet because he was the one of the most responsive and professional... More

Enjoyed a full day of deep water fishing with Skeet and his crew. Two dads and two teenagers. What a great "once in a lifetime" experience for the kids. They each caught a sailfish....one about 80 lbs, one about 100 lbs. The crew did all the work, we relaxed on the boat's upper deck, enjoyed the few, consumed lots of... More

Raised 3 of 5 sailfish and 1 Blue Marlin. Capt Skeet is a Pro and the Bushwacker is a great boat. We had a great experience and really enjoyed the day. Highly recommend Skeet and the Bushwacker if you visit the Tamarindo area!
