“Best surf trip in CR”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2015

Boos is the best operator in the area. Great boats with lots of shade and the best Captains in the area. We were the first ones in the surf at witches and on the best peak immediately. We spent two days in a row with Boos and had the trip to remember. Ollies and witches are amazing waves and these guys know other spots around depending on tide/wind/ and swell. Thanks for a great two days. We will be back and will of course book it with Boos.

“Disappointed on our trip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2015

We went out on a half day trip and unfortunately we didn't catch much...only things we were catching were small blackfin tunas and a couple bat rays as we cruised through giant schools of them. After talking to some locals later on we were told that Flamingo/Catalina is not a good area for fishing and were advised to go to Tamarindo next time, where there is better fishing. Not sure if we just had bad luck, but just trying to explain our experience honestly. Also our two crew members were very nice, however didn't speak much English and didn't really engage us much. Would have liked to have been able to converse more with them on the area, fishing experience, etc..

Thank you soooo much for our 1st avarege review in two years!!!!

About your experience with us we are very happy to read about how nice my crew was with you and your party that very important to kwon for me.

About the "English part" i think you are missing the point because we are in Costa Rica and our main language is spanish and my crew and even myself we try to speak your language and next time will be even better for your own experience to try to speak some spanish so in that way BOTH sites try to communicate and have a fear conversation, is very easy for you to said that the crew "didn't speak much english" when we are not in your country and you are in COSTA RICA were we speak spanish.

Flamingo/Catalina + Tamarindo are very close if your day was slow or bad luck is part of the game that is what is call FISHING and not CACHING is sport fishing you never kwon what is going to happen could be epic day o could be just a boat ride, we weak up every morning and try our best but in the end is just matter of what the ocean is doing with conditions and bites.

I do recommend you to go online and do some home work and read what is fishing all about so you can have a better experience next time you go fishing some place else.

“Great fishing, nice boat and crew”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2015

We went out twice in two different boats, both of them were in great shape with plenty of shade on deck. The crew was awesome.. really friendly and easy to get along with. Keep what you'd like and you can even have sashimi right on the boat if you're up for it. Lots of wildlife to see and lots of fish to catch.

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2015 via mobile

It was our first experience with boos adventures. We found them through all the great reviews we read on trip advisor. Booked it as a birthday gift for my boyfriend. Everything we read about is the absolute truth.Christian Boos and Walter made it a lifetime memory for us. Thank you both!
My boyfriend can't wait to get back on the plane and take his friends on the trip. We will definitely be back surfing and then fishing with Christian. See you soon!
