5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

As with the other reviews of Rich Coast Fishing we had an absolute fabulous time. You don't need to bring anything besides sunglasses, sunscreen and a camera to take pictures of big fish. But for the most part I want to comment on the crew. The Captain, Jesus, and first mate, Mimo, were simply awesome. Initially I feared there would be a language barrier. Immediately I was relieved that they both spoke English very well. Their knowledge of the country and its history was very interesting and their fishing knowledge was second to none. They took the time to explain everything to the Gringos!! We fished for Mahi Mahi first, which was a good catch for supper that we shared with our friends on the shore. Then we moved into deeper waters for Sails and Marlin. We caught 7 sails but had no luck that day for Marlin. They take a lot of pride in taking care of and maintaining their boat. It had very nice facilities. We would love to make a return trip. Awesome!

Thanks for leaving a great review for Rich Coast Fishing Richard! You nailed it with the crew. These guys are the heart and soul of our little deep sea fishing outfit and are really what sets us apart from the other local outfits. They work hard and take pride in their abilities to get our guests on some monsters. I'm glad you were able to catch some dinner as well as some beautiful Sailfish. Hopefully on your next trip, Jesus and Mimo can find a Marlin for you! Take care and happy fishing!

“Amazing experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

I went fishing on February 7th, 2014 with Rich Coast Fishing and I will say that it was an amazing experience. We caught 9 Sailfish and 4 Tuna. The staff on the boat were extremely nice and helpful (English speaking) and the lunch they made was amazing (fried chicken, potatoes and mixed vegetables). Drinks were provided along with air conditioned cabin, restroom and couches. Overall this experience exceeded my expectations. Thanks Rich Coast Fishing for an unforgettable day on a World Class boat!

“Abundance of fun and beauty!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Costa Rica is an amazing place to visit, beautiful, and friendly people.
Rich Coast Fishing was a awesome experience for my family and I. The boat had all the amenities for the ultimate fishing experience. The crew was very helpful and quick to their feet.
I felt their expertise was at the top!
During our fishing trip we caught 4 sailfish, all over 100+. My husband reeled in a 300+ blue marlin. Wow, it was awesome!

“Awesome Time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

We have been fishing with Captain Jesus and First Mate Mimo many times and have had an awesome experience every time! The Makaira is a 44' Luhrs, is very roomy and comfortable. The cabin has everything that you need....air conditioning, full restroom, couches and beds should you want a little break. Jesus & Mimo speak English and love to fish as well as treating you to a wonderful fishing trip! Sails, Marlin, Mahi Mahi and a host of others. We have seen manta rays, turtles and LOTS of dolphins. The fishing trip also included snacks, lunch, beer and water to round out a wonderful day!!! We are looking forward to our next trip the end of July - taking our kids & grandkids!

Lilly,

Thanks for taking the time to leave us a nice review and we are glad that you had a successful fishing trip aboard the Makaira with Captain Jesus and First Mate Mimo! They are a great crew and really enjoy taking our guests deep sea fishing.

We look forward to hosting you and your family on your next fishing trip. There will be plenty of room for you all aboard the Makaira and I'm sure it will be a fun trip with lots of fish! Bigger, nicer, air-conditioned boats like the Makaira, make the time spent in transit so much more enjoyable for everyone and allow for resting out of the sun after a long fight with a Sailfish or Marlin!

When you decide to book your next trip, please let us know if you have any special needs or lunch suggestions for your grandchildren and we would be happy to accommodate. We love sharing our passion for the ocean and sportfishing with new generations and can't wait to see you again! Take Care and Happy Fishing!

“Rich Coast Fishing- Amazing deep sea fishing experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

I went on a deep sea fishing trip with them in Feb. 2013. It was my first time deep sea fishing, it went great and was better than I expected. When booking the boat, you deal with the actual American boat owner so there was no confusion there. Boat was very clean and a nice boat. The captain and first mate worked great together and knew what they were doing to get you on fish They were accommodating as well, if you needed anything on the boat they were there to help. Beer was cold, food was good, and the fishing was great! Over all experience was amazing and I will definitely go back again!! Call Kelly at 620-242-4708 w/ any questions.

Jeremy,

Thank you for the kind review and we are glad that you enjoyed your deep sea fishing experience with Rich Coast Fishing! We are very proud of our Captain and First Mate's ability to locate fish for our customers as well as take care of the their needs; whether it be locating some cold beverages or helping to reel in a 400lb Marlin!

We are trying to make our booking process as painless as possible, so having the owner answer when the phone rings seems to be the easiest option! Kelly always has his phone with him so feel free to call and set up your next fishing trip when you are ready. We are excited to have you back and look forward to fishing with you again! Take care and happy fishing!
