Best Captain on These Waters!

We fished twice on the Bushwacker with Captain Skeet and his crew. It was a tough time fishing and most boats were coming back with few fish or none at all. He warned us but we... read more

We fished twice on the Bushwacker with Captain Skeet and his crew. It was a tough time fishing and most boats were coming back with few fish or none at all. He warned us but we wanted to fish anyway. :-) The first day was 6/12 and we fished 1/2 day inshore in the afternoon. For this outing, it was... More

Captain Skeet and his crew do not disappoint. We did a full day of fishing, caught 2 sailfish and a dorado. Absolutely beautiful boat and new, state of the art gear. Even during our trip out, Captain Skeet pointed out all kinds of dolphins and turtles. The crew had drinks, snacks and the fabulous lunch ready for us. Skeet took... More

We arrived on time for our full day of fishing. My girlfriend's Dad, brother-in-law and his son only spoke Spanish. My girlfriend's son and I only spoke English. Captain Lee Keidel was at the helm that day. Someone that Captian Skeet trusted with his first class boat. Captain Lee was outstanding! His knowledge and professionalism were second to none. He...

Great day on the water with Capt. Skeet and his crew! My 10 yr old son caught his first sailfish, couldn't ask for a better day. Beautiful boat, well kept and very comfortable. Hope to fish on the Bushwacker again soon!

This has to be the best fishing charter in Costa Rico. Superb boat that is spotless, great gear and a dedicated captain. Capt Skeet invests the time and energy to make sure you have a great charter. I will not fish with anyone else in CR.

During 2015 I was fortunate enough to fish a week in Quepos, a week at Los Suenos and four days in the Tamarindo area. Although all the Captains that I fished with were outstanding, Captain Skeet on the Bushwacker at Playa Flamingo was a level above anyone who I have ever fished with (including the U.S.A.). The 42 Bertram is... More

Captain Skeet is the Best. Best Boat, Best equipment, Best Crew. But most importantly he knows how to find the fish. I took my father in law out and wanted to put him on some fish. We had a very rare day catching 3 marlin, 2 sail fish, and a dorado(Mahi Mahi) Layne

I have fished all over and have never fished with a captain that is as serious as Skeet is about fishing. His operation is like a well oiled machine. I would recommend this trip to anyone who enjoys good fishing, great equipment, and a very personable skipper.

Booked an all day offshore trip with two families with children (11-16 YO). Boat leaves from Playa Flamingo (about 10 minutes from Westin Paradisus/30 minutes from Tamarindo/1 hour from Liberia) and is cleanest/nicest boat in the area. Capt Skeet is from Georgia USA and is organized, methodical, and 100% professional. Boat is 45' Bertram - runs great, cold AC in... More
