This has to be the best fishing charter in Costa Rico. Superb boat that is spotless, great gear and a dedicated captain. Capt Skeet invests the time and energy to make sure you have a great charter. I will not fish with anyone else in CR.

During 2015 I was fortunate enough to fish a week in Quepos, a week at Los Suenos and four days in the Tamarindo area. Although all the Captains that I fished with were outstanding, Captain Skeet on the Bushwacker at Playa Flamingo was a level above anyone who I have ever fished with (including the U.S.A.). The 42 Bertram is... More

Captain Skeet is the Best. Best Boat, Best equipment, Best Crew. But most importantly he knows how to find the fish. I took my father in law out and wanted to put him on some fish. We had a very rare day catching 3 marlin, 2 sail fish, and a dorado(Mahi Mahi) Layne

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
