“We fished with Capt'n Rick two day's on the Rhino Charger”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2012

We fished two days with Capt'n Rick and three of us landed our first Sailfish!! my 78 year old father and my 23 year old daughter also landed sailfish! We brought enough Mahi Mahi and tuna back to the hotel (Cala Luna) for a feast for the 14 we had at a family outing to Tamarindo! Capt Rick and his crew did a fantastic job!!! His knowlege of the area and fishing prowess were evident and the Boat was clean and orginized. we had a ball on the boat with family from 17 to 78!!! and came back for a second day!

“Rhino Charger and Captain Rick Provide Awesome Fishing Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2012

For the past three years we have chartered the Rhino Charger and Captain Rick for a day of awesome game fishing. Captain Rick and Victor his mate are extremely knowledgeable about Costa Rican sport fishing and do everything they can to make sure you have a very enjoyable day on the water . The Rhino Charger is a clean boat with an the excellent hull design makes for a comfortable ride. All three years we have hooked big game fish including Dorado, Sailfish, Striped Marlin and Blue Marlin. My wife with little sports fishing experience was able to land a 175lbs Striped marlin all on her own with coaching from Captain Rick. I would recommend Captain Rick and the Rhino Charger to anyone who wants to fish and have fun!

“A day surfing on the Rhino Charger”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2012

We spent the entire day with Captain Rick on the Rhino Charger surfing Ollie's Point. We left Tamarindo at 6am and the crew was there to meet us on time. We got on the boat and immediately noticed the cleanliness it even though is was a fishing boat. The boat is obviuosly run by a professional who knows about safety on the high seas. Our trip could not have been better unless the captain could improved the waves. The crew was friendly and very helpful. I would recommend the Rhino Charger and the crew to someone who wants to take a boat trip out on the the ocean even if they do not fish.

“WOW! Best day of fishing ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2011

Rick (owner/captian) and Victor (deck hand) made this trip the best sportfishing trip my wife and I have been on! The Rhino Charger is a very clean and comfortable fishing boat. We chartered the boat for the whole day and we got our moneys worth! less than 2 hours out of Tamarindo we hooked up with a Marlin (Victor estimated at over 400 lbs), after a brief 10 minute fight it broke the leader and off it went. So out went the gear again. Within a half hour we had another stike, this time it was a young Dorado, we released this one. After awhile we saw a log floating floating off in the distance and headed towards it. On the first pass we had a double hook up of a Darado and marlin. Dorado was around 50 lbs and the Marlin was around 300.. We had another 50+ lbs Dorado and a sailfish before the day was over. As I said it was a great day of fishing!
