Attraction details
Type: Ships, Sights & Landmarks
Owner description: 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 did not rent a car so Ricks awesome wife Jackie picked us up at our resort eliminating all stress of getting to... 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

My husband and I took two friends with us to fish with Rick and his crew in Costa Rica. I can't tell you how much from this group of 'Tie-Dye Texans' had on Rick's boat. He and his crew were very helpful learning about the waters and fish off shore in the area. We fished for 3 days and everyone... More

My husband and I took a day trip with Rick on the Kingfisher last week for our 5th wedding anniversary. We fish most weekends during the summer, but have always done so from land. Getting out on a boat was on my husband's bucket list, and they made it a great experience. Every aspect of our day went smoothly, from... More

Fished on the Kingfisher in July of 2014 and from the first time I emailed the Capt. until we unloaded back in the harbor, Rick and his crew were not only true professionals but a pleasure to fish with. I have been a guide for 15 years and have hosted trips from Africa to Alaska. In that time I have... More

I have lost count on how many times I have fished with Rick and crew on the Kingfisher and I have never been disappointed. My first time down to Playa Carrillo in 2002 found us in a phenomenal sailfish bite, releasing 20-30 sails a day. Since then, I have been back just about every year to fish on the Kingfisher....

Had a great trip AGAIN with Rick on Kingfisher. Last week I took my two sons 13 and 14 and brother-in-law out for a full day. I always try to fish with Rick when I come down to surf in Costa, usually twice a year for the past 20 years. They always deliver a consistent experience. They have a great... More
