About Dream On Sport Fishing
We work hard at making your day on the water the best it can be. I encourage you to read all our reviews then call us. Our fishing trips are the best there are in Costa Rica! The Dream On is a luxurious fishing vessel that has twin 300 hp Caterpillar diesel engines, live bait well, tuna tubes, Penn International and Shimano professional grade tackle and tons more lures than any boat. We almost always catch fish! Our crew is bi-lingual in spanish and english and work hard to provide every client on every trip, a fantastic fishing experience. Full day rate for 1-6 people is $1300, half day rate for 1-6 people is $800. We can take a maximum of 6 people on the Dream On, a 10m (33ft) Blackfin cabin cruiser. We pick up our clients on the beach, usually in front of their hotel, using our small skiff. We will pick up clients anywhere from just north of the Playa Flamingo Marina Beach to the 4 Seasons on the tip of the Papagayo Peninsula. If you are staying south of Playa Flamingo, we can arrange transportation at a reasonable cost. EVERYTHING IS INCLUDED IN OUR FISHING TRIP except for the tip for the crew. We provide fresh made lunches, snacks, fresh fruits, and beverages. We can try to provide for any special request if given at least one day notice and if there is any added cost, we'll let you know beforehand. Pura Vida! Over the past 5 years, we have had only excellent and very good reviews and a year ago, one terrible review from a lady on 3 different medications, who apparently got very sea sick. Her friends paid to fish a full day and refused to return early, so she gave us a nasty review. Had I known she was over medicated, I would have insisted she not board the boat. Your comfort and safety are the number one priority!
