The KINGFISHER is 31 foot Palm Beach, with full electronics, tower and outriggers, offering ample shade and room for up to 5 anglers, it is set up for the serious fishermen as well as the novice angler. We have been sending home satisfied anglers year after year to the point that the majority of our business is now repeat customers, and word of mouth. We strive to take fishing to a more personal level. We encourage angler participation, and while at first (especially to the novice) it may seem difficult, given a good day it is hard not to catch the fever.

We had a great day fishing with the Kingfisher last week (February 2016). Both Rick and his two mates were enthusiastic and fun. We chartered a full day and spent it offshore, and were lucky enough to have lots of billfish action. We released 6 sailfish (out of 12 raised). The best part of the day, we released one beautiful...

Great day on the water! It was a windy rough day but the crew was wonderful and yes, we boated a beautiful sail! Crew even made fabulous lunch on board for us. Our day on the water with Kingfisher was the best day of our Coata Rica Vacation. We can't wait to go back to catch that marlin!

Not a dull moment between the scenery and the porpoises!! Oh did I forget to mention the fish we caught.... 7 bites, landed and released five of the... More

My family and I spent a full day with Rick and his crew on 8/1/15. We raised 4 sailfish and three marlin. Lost a 250 lb + marlin but boated a big Pacific sailfish. Also caught 20+ yellowfin tuna. I am a lifelong saltwater fisherman and I can attest that Rick and his crew are experienced professionals that know their... More

We went on a trip with Rick and the Kingfisher crew in April. As a reference we have three children ages 12, 10 and 9. The day was fantastic. While we only caught one fish during the day, Rick was accommodating and brought us through several school of dolphin as well,as sea turtles. The crew is polite, professional and very... More

My husband who is an avid sport fisherman and myself enjoyed two full days with captain Rick and crew along the kingfisher and it was definitely the highlight of our time in Costa Rica. Captain Rick was full of energy and enthusiastic about us having a fruitful adventure. He even encouraged me to catch my first billfish and taught my... More

We went out with Rick and his crew yesterday and had the most amazing time ever! We are from northern Minnesota, so are all tried and true anglers, but as you can imagine, this was different than anything we had experienced. Rick is extremely personable and does everything possible to give you the fishing trip of a lifetime. His crew... More
