“Steve got his Rooster fish from the Kayak!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2011

I always have to plan fishing for my husband and since we were in area thought Kayak fishing would be fun since was doing a charter later in MA. WOW glad we booked with Joe. besides the fact that Joe is a great guide and fun to be around, Steve got his goal of catching a rooster fish. Steven our 14 year old and i just paddled around, played on the beach and took pictures. Was a fun day and very reasonably priced as well. Highly recommend!

“Fun and great service, knowledge, expertise, and experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2010

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 there was plenty of great food at dinner and breakfast for everyone. He was alert to our needs and was always available and patient.

“best kayak tours on the osa, for fishing, mangrove tours and experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2009

we went out a few times with costa rica kayak fishing last spring and the service was great and the fishing was phenomenal! one member of the group caught a 20 pound dorado, and the guide pulled in roosters each time. snapper, snook and a variety of jacks are commonly caught inshore, nearly a stone's throw from the beach. offshore, boat supported tours are offered for those who wish to go for larger sportfish like tuna and marlin and "offshore" there is not very far out. the owner, is well connected in town and has been guiding in the area for many years. we also went out on a sunset mangrove tour, which was beautiful and not to be missed. their tackle was well maintained and you can drag bait or lures to your liking. in addition to the knowledge of local wildlife and sportfishing experience, the tours are very reasonably priced and the size of the groups that go out are small.

“Everything I wanted in a fishing trip and more.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2009

I decided to use Costa Rica Kayak Fishing Tours because I was attracted to the Golfo Dulce region. Joe Lindberg was a very knowledgeble guide that made everything easy, from gathering bait and helping set up my gear to knowing the best times and places to see local wildlife ( monkeys, dolphins, et.al.) which is what I wanted to do. Fishing was exciting as we pulled in a huge rooster fish! Mr. Lindberg also knew the town Puerto JImenez well and gave me great tips on places to stay and restaurants.
