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.

Its been almost a month and I still cant forget the awesome time and the great experience being able to catch a Blue Marlin on the Kingfisher! The First Mate "Orlando" and Capt Rick make a good team on the water. I am a Captain and experienced angler and I would recommend fishing on the Kingfisher to anyone! I will... 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

As always we had a great day with Rick & Crew! Rick is very knowledgeable, professional, courteous, and flexible. He works hard to find the fish. One of the surprises was the opportunity to jump in the water and film a few of the tuna we caught. Had a blast and highly recommend a day with Rick aboard the Kingfisher!

Just came in from fishing with Captain Rick and Crew. Landed 3 sailfish and lots of action. The boat was clean, well maintained, quality tackle, and comfortable off-shore. Rick and crew were personable and a pleasure to be with. We appreciated Ricks experience and his willingness to spend time and money on gas when it slowed down to find the... More
