“Awesome Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014 via mobile

Mad marlin fishing made my Costa Rica experience. There's nothing like catching a sailfish, and the six of us caught 7 sailfish and 2 mahi mahi. The captain and first mate made sure we were comfortable with all the pineapple, watermelon, beer, soda, water we could possibly want. Can't wait to go back, and it will for sure be with Mad Marlin!

Excellent trip. All involved were very nice, we caught three sailfish and two dorado, the Captain and mate were first class. We highly recommend this boat and will use them again when we return.

“Always a Great time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

This is our 2nd trip with Mad Marlin Fishing in the last 3 years. We traveled the first week of April 2013. As always, we are completely impressed and satisfied with the group. Leeann is always super helpful with any suggestions or recommendations we need while on our vacation, and is always on the dock before leaving and when returning. We did a two day trip this year, and boated 3 sailfish and 3 dorado! The boat captain and the first mate worked their tails off to put us on fish and make our trip another memorable one, including having fresh dorado sushi on the boat! Deelish!!!! We plan on another outing with them next time we roll through Costa Rica!

“Sportfishing on the Mad Marlin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Just returned from a great sport fishing trip to Costa Rica. Glen (the captain) was great and Tio, the first mate worked tirelessly to make sure we had a successful and enjoyable outing. We caught three sailfish, mahi mahi, and wahoo on our offshore outing. The next day we tried our luck onshore and hooked some roosterfish. Tio makes the best sandwiches north of Antarctica. On the way back to Quepos, Tio expertly cleaned and fileted the fish for us and we later enjoyed the fresh fruits of our "labor". Very enjoyable experience and I'm already planning a return trip with friends. Can't wait to return.

“Mad Marlin Sportfishing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

I fished on the Mad Marlin 3 out of the 4 days that I was in Costa Rica and it was a great experience. We caught several sailfish, a wahoo, a mahi mahi, and some rooster fish. The captain (Glen) and first-mate (Tio) were awesome. They knew their stuff and also prepared some great meals for us on board.

For the fish that we could keep; Tio did an excellent job filleting the fish so that we could enjoy it at dinner. Man was it awesome to eat such fresh fish.

I would highly recommend this trip when in Costa Rica!!
