We went on a kayaking trip through the mangroves and had a fantastic time! Joe is very knowledgeable about birds and plants and took us places we'd never have found on our own.

Took an afternoon kayak with Joe. Had a nice paddle, saw some bottlenose dolphins close up, went for a swim and ate a fresh fruit snack on the beach. Outstanding.

I had a relaxing morning paddle up the mangrove lined river. This was a fun way to go birding -Be sure bring your camera, binoculars, and plenty of water. Joe was an excellent guide and naturalist! Next time i'll try fishing from the kayak.

He is very knowledgeable about all the local flora and fauna and will go out of his way to know you are enjoying yourself. I would highly recommend his company especially... More

We were recommended to Joe Lynberg by sport fishing magazine as well as other guides who spoke of his talent as a fisherman and capability as a guide to any skill level angler. My mom caught her first fish from a kayak... A 50 pound rooster among many other fish we caught over 2 days of great fishing including snapper,... More

I led a 20 person two night, three day kayak around the Gulfo Dulce. We contracted Joe to rent his kayaks, provide boat support, to guide, cook, and entertain. He was great in every category. Joe knows the area and shared his knowledge and experience in a fun and engaging way. He is a professional chef, among other talents, and... More

I decided to use Costa Rica Kayak Fishing Tours because I was attracted to the Golfo Dulce region.
