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!

This was my husband and my second of 2 fishing trips while in CR. This one was way better than the other. We were with Captain Daniel (who reminded me of the old man and the seas main character) he did not say much but he got us to the fish and captained the boat expertly. The guide Daniel was... More

Even though I got sea sick the trip was great. The guide made sure to point out any interesting sights. We saw plenty of Manta Rays jumping out of the water and we got to see a whale from a distance. The fishing wasn't the best that day, but the guide did everything in his power to make sure we... More

Awesome photo of your catch - it's a beauty and thanks for uploading. Finding a split-charter is sometimes difficult as many people like to have a private charters. Thank you for being so accommodating with the last minute split-charter which ended up working out well for everyone. Who does'nt like to save money?! More

My husband had been emailing with Lisa about arranging a day for him to go out. After we couldn't find anyone to split the charter with him I agreed to go out (my first time) We confirmed through email and Lisa said the boat would be waiting on the beach at 7 at the Riu. By 7:15 we knew something... More

Spent a great day fishing with Captain Daniel and Mauricio. The day we went out it was incredibly windy so it was a bit challenging to find good spots. However, they persevered and there were fish to be had. My husband fought a 5 foot black tip reef shark all the way to the boat for a fifteen minute battle... More

This was one of the best fishing charters I have been on. I know there is a lot of luck in fishing, but you also need a crew that knows where the fish are and when to make changes. Our day started with an on time pick up, 30 minute boat ride, and then within 10 minutes of the line... More

It means so much to us to hear that our fishing excursion was the best you've been on. The mate, Mauricio, is a die-hard fisherman and fishes on his days off so you know he is passionate about his job. Captain Daniel has fished the waters of the Papagayo Gulf his entire life and knows the waters very, very well.... More

Might have been one of the best fishing charters I have been on. I realize fishing is a matter of luck, but there is also skill in the fact of knowing where the fish are and willingness to work different baits.

The big fish were not biting our day out. All the other boats were struggling. Mauricio and Capt. Daniel decided to take us to a little spot off the beaten path, and we lit it up. Caught a small Rooster and a ton of decent sized Jacks. While all the other boats were out catching Bonita, we had the spot... More
