Owner description: 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. 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!

I was very impressed with the service here. I reached out to several operations to arrange a boat to go surfing while staying in papagayo. North Pacific Tours (npt) was very responsive and immediately offered the best price. Throughout arranging 3 days of boat trips to go surf, they were very responsive and always kept me up to date on... More

None of us fish regularly and for the girls it was the first time on a charter. Capt. Daniel and Mauricio did a fantastic job! Not only did we... More

Once again it was a great day fishing with Mauricio and Daniel. I love casting with topwater poppers so that's what we did for most of the day. We raised several cubera and red snapper but couldn't get them to the boat so we decided to catch some bait and try downrigging. That's when we hooked the 80+lb rooster which... More
