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! Our crew is bi-lingual in Spanish and English and work hard to provide every client on every trip, a fantastic fishing experience. 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.

Playas del Coco, Costa Rica19 contributions14 helpful votes
Rick from Dream On Sport Fishing set us up a local boat, La Huida, for a half day of fishing out of Playas del Coco. Captain Nito and his first mate did a great job of handling everything for our novice fishermen group, my husband and I plus our elderly parents. Even though we came back with just some small fish (bonita and red snapper), we had a great time. When we returned, the local restaurant, Claudio and Glorias, prepared our catch for lunch. I plan to contact Rick and Captain Nito again for our next fishing expedition.

I have been a repeat customer of Dream On for the past 5 years - every time I visit Guanacaste. I have never seen a harder working crew than than the Dream Team. Captain Angel, first mate Mario and Angel's son, Brian (mate) are absolutely fantastic. They never disappoint - Brian is attentive with customer service and takes great pics and prepares excellent snacks. Mario is the best first mate I have ever seen - watching him work the lines is incredible to see. And Captain Angel knows the waters better than any captain I've ever fished with. Rick, the owner, is always very attentive, friendly, responsive and follows up to ensure we had a great day on the water. If you are planning on fishing with a professional and experienced crew in Guanacaste - Playas del Coco/Playa Panama/Flamingo/Tamarindo beaches this is the crew you want! They also prepare your catch to take back to your resort or a local restaurant to cook for you. 5 stars all the way, highly recommended!!!

This all day fishing charter was highlight of our vacation! This crew was awesome and took great care of our group. They did amazing job of getting us on the fish throughout the day. We caught Mahi, saw dolphins and sailfish. The boat is big, spacious and can really move fast through the water. The services onboard from fruit, drinks and lunch were top notch! We will be definitely booking the Dream On on our next trip!!!

Hi Charlton! It's so nice to get this review today, thank you! We have been experiencing a terrible red tide which has some people upset. It was here when you were fishing as well and we do our best to work around it but Mother Nature can make it difficult. I have been traveling and did not forget about your hat...I will send it Friday! Pura Vida, Rick

We finally were able to travel back to Costa Rica after 3 years and our trip always includes two bookings with the Dream On crew. Our first outing was on the Loretta and not only did we pull in several beautiful yellow fin tunas, we crossed paths with a super pod of spinner dolphins that entertained us for quite a while. Our second outing aboard Dream On was nothing short of spectacular!! Captain Angel and Super Mario hooked my husband up to a 330+ Blue Marlin! What a fight! This bucket list beauty was landed and released with the skill and knowledge of the professional and experienced crew. You will not find a more hard-working and friendly crew than the guys at Dream On. They will continue to be part of our holiday plans and we will always recommend them to anyone we know who travels to Costa Rica! Many thanks to Rick, Caprain Angel and Mario!!

Thank you Sue! It's so great to have all of our regular friends returning after all the restrictions we had over the last couple of years. Even though the familiarity of returning guests is awesome...the pressure is always there a little differently when the expectations are a higher than with new patrons! I'm so glad we were able to get you on a bunch of great fish! I hope it's not another 3 years before we see you again! Pura Vida! Rick

Two friends and I fished for three full days with Dream On Sportfishing. One day was on the 35 floot Cabo Express "Dream On" and the other two were on the 32 foot BlackFin "Loretta". Each day the captains were great and our deckhand Mario was fantastic. He's been doing this for nearly 20 years and he is a real pro! We managed to land a 140 pound sailfish, some snapper and grouper as well as tuna mackerel on the first two days as well as a couple of beautiful roosters! We had a few local restaurants (Father Rooster and Coconuts) prepare dinner with our catch and it was delicious!!!! But our last day was the best. We were out nearly 30 miles from Coco Beach trolling for billfish when the captain heard they were catching yellowfin tuna about 10 miles further out. Marion Brough in all our lines and we made a bee line to the spot... When we got there in was about 1,000 feet of water and there were thousands of spinner dolphin breaking the surface and feeding on baitfish, It was the most incredible thing in nature I have ever witnessed!!!!! We caught and landed two nice yellowfin before the bite was over. So the captain started trolling for billfish again. Then about 1:00 in 600 feet of water a giant blue marlin hit one of baits Mario had set out. He missed his first attempt but came back a second time and took the ballyhoo... and the fight was on!!!! This fish was very fast and powerful and jumped nearly 20 times.... at one point it seemed to walk across the water with its entire body exposed!!!!! Again, Mario and Captain Max worked in harmony and helped us fight the beast and finally bring it alongside the boat. Mario worked the fish up close and managed to grab hold of its bill and after much thrashing, he removed the hook and released the fish... Man, what an experience!!!! Bucket list item for sure!!!! Thanks for the great experience and memories!
