Our team was fortunate enough to fish with Captain Mike one day in the just concluded 2015 Offshore World Championships and he was hands down the best. We were a bit green and had his crewmate going nuts but he kept us on the fish and handled the boat like a champion. Of interest Capt. Mike and his boat Epic... More

Mike, Kevin, David, Steven and I wanted to thank you, Mariano and Philippe for a fantastic fishing trip! This was my seventh or eighth trip to Los Sueños and The Epic was hands down the best. There are other charters I’ve tried but they are head boats compared to yours. Your skill set as a captain is second to none.... More

Captain Mike and Randall are top notch. This was the second year we have been out with them and they delivered again. The boat is first class and rigged for anything you want to go after. We started the day off looking for snapper and boy did we find them. The guys are there to help you fish not just... More

Always a great day of fishing with Capt. Mike and mate Randall. Have fished with them at least 10 times and have always had a great day of fishing! Inshore or offshore doesn't really matter. I will be back!

We have been remiss in submitting a review since our trip with MJ and Randall was in January of this year. My wife and I visited Costa Rica for the first time to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary. Neither of us are fishermen, nor had we ever caught a bill fish before. Imagine how thrilled we were to land the... More

Epic won the trophy for the highest scoring boat at the competition and... More

I have fished a lot of charter boats at home and around the world and Captain Mike and Randall are top notch. We caught 10 sails (out of about 20 raised) and a dolphin (mahi) and missed a blue marlin on the left long, with us hooking all of our own fish. Randall worked hard all day and taught my... More

Mike and Randall are the best captain and mate in the Costa Rican oceans. We caught at least 8 sailfish and a really nice 95 pound yellowfin tuna. These guys have to be the best team out there. Thank you mike and we'll definitely recommend you anytime. Randall has to be the best first mate. He was so awesome. We... More

My friends & I spent a fabulous day of fishing with Captain Mike and Randall on the Epic out of the Los Suenos Resort Marina. Early on the trip, Mike alerted us that the whales were in migration and we took a slight detour to watch the Pilot whales lead a school of Humpbacks through the Pacific waters and that... More
