After many years of traveling to tamarindo and partaking in many activities, I have to say our time with captain pit and his crew were the best spent. We had an amazing day on the sea catching a variety of fish. The crew made sure we were constantly engaged and partaking in all the fun. We were even able to... More

My wife and I had a great day on the boat with Pit, Rudy, and Luis. We caught a nice wahoo and my wife's first sailfish! The guys had everything ready to go when we met them at the beach and the boat was clean and comfortable. Pit and crew worked all day trying to raise fish for us and... More

Capt. Lee and crew got us into the Sailfish fast. We raised 11 on the day, hooked 6 and landed 6! Thanks for the great day. Mates were top notch and the boat was well prepared, clean and comfortable. I hope to charter with Kingpin again someday.

We booked Kingpin Sportfishing after reading the phenomenal reviews and carefully perusing their website for the possibility of realizing the ultimate objective; a Blue Marlin. Our bucket list experience started with Keri, who responded quickly to our request for the booking date, and answered key questions. We arrived at the beach as instructed, and were whisked away to Reel Trouble... More

Capt. Lee and his crew were delightful and eager to secure a fish for us. They put us on a 50lb wahoo and 6 giant mahi. To our delight we chased down some sailfish and then caught a beautiful stripe marlin, We shall return! Pura Vida!

We did a half day trip ( 2 couples) on February 28, 2014 with Captain Lee. It was excellent. We caught 2 Sails and lost another. We also caught 2 nice Dorados that made excellent dinners. Capt. Lee is a great fisherman and is from the USA originally. He speaks Spanish as well. His 2 deck assistants Rudy and Luis... More

We had a good day with Kingpin. We didn't get our big fish, but did raise two sails and briefly hooked a big blue marlin. The crew kept working hard for us, and we saved the day with three nice mahi-mahi. We also missed another mahi and a yellow fin tuna. Luis worked his tail off all trip long. He... More

My husband and I had a great time fishing with the kingpin crew! Neither of us had ever been sport fishing before so we weren't sure what to expect. The crew was very helpful and friendly! We caught marlin, dorado, tuna and sailfish. It exceeded our expectations! We would definitely do it again!!! Thank you so much for the unforgettable... More
