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! « less

It was our pleasure to take you out on the Don Manuel and blackened Mahi sounds delicioius right now. The crew's job is so much easier when the fish participate and it makes for very happy clients. We hope you'll return to Costa Rica soon and thank you for your review. More

We weren't sure what to expect during the first part of the trip as we trolled for bait but ended up having an amazing experience. We caught a 30# mahi, a small mahi, 2 yellow fin tuna and a skipjack. Mauricio was very helpful with us and the kids, showing us how to bring in the fish and demonstrating a... More

Our family had a great time fishing with North Pacific Tours, they are very fun to fish with and knowledgable about the fishing in the area. We landed several fish and enjoyed the snorkeling on the secluded beaches during the lunch break! Great trip!!

Snorkeling during a fishing trip really breaks up the day when your out with the family. I'm glad everyone enjoyed the day out with us. When our clients have a great time, we know we are doing something right. We hope to hear from you again - Enjoy your summer. Lisa More

My husband and two teenager sons absolutely enjoyed their 5 hour sport fishing with North Pacific Tours. Very professional. All smiles from a successful outing catching a huge sail fish! Additionally, caught lunch, Mahi Mahi. Lisa was very responsive with immediate correspondence. Daniel and Maurico were fantastic. Thank you all very a great time.

I'll start by saying that the fishing wasn't super hot, but these guys worked hard to get us into fish. We ended up catching some skipjack, but we couldn't find the rooster i was looking for. Oh well. Because fishing was slow they took us to a beach where I snorkeled with my boys, which was great. I was able... More

Thank you for your review. We are as disappointed that the fish do not cooperate with our fishing lines as we really want to have you catch as much as possible.

Just a wonderful day on the water with Mauricio and Daniel. We were on the fish all day and boated more than other crews we saw this day, including a very nice Mahi served up later at our hotel restaurant.
