Papagayo Gulf Sport Fishing - North Pacific Tours is a fully licensed and insured fishing company ready to take you out for a full day or half day of fishing. Snorkeling and Surfing to Witches and Ollie's Point is also available. We offer a wide variety of fishing options in the Papagayo Gulf: inshore, offshore, coastal, bottom, casting, fly and spear fishing. If you are looking to save money or prefer not to fish alone, Lisa can arrange a split-charter with other fisherman/woman looking for the same. Captain Daniel has over 40 years of fishing experience and his mate Mauricio, fluent in English, has over 20 years. These guys love to fish and are fishing professionals. We now have a GoPro camera to film your fishing adventure in which Lisa can cut/edit your video to be posted on Youtube. Snorkeling can be included at the end of your fishing trip at no additional cost. This is a great tour for the entire family to explore the beautiful Pacific Ocean. Costa Rica sport fishing is known worldwide as one of the greatest sport fishing/surfing destination plus the weather is great almost all year round. For the intermediate and experienced surfer, trips to Witches Rock and Ollie's are offered with a guide. We look forward to hearing from you. Pura Vida!

Its great to read your review. It seems as though you and your father-in-law had a nice time out on the water together. The fishing license website has FINALLY been fixed after years of asking. Purchasing them on line is a much easier process. It seems as though we have been excelling at Bucket Lists check offs for many of... More

Awesome you are coming back to fish with us. Captain Daniel retired this summer and Mauricio is Captaining. We now have a new mate, David, and he is proving to be an exceptional fisherman. We look forward to having you out with us again and thank you for your review! BTW, that amberjack was incredible. More

Highly recommended if your thinking of chartering a boat in the area. Captain mauricio always had a plan B which is vital in fishing as things rarely go to plan first time, and his local knowledge was brilliant. They worked really hard to find us the roosters we wanted, we'll definitely be back to fish with them.

We fished with Mauricio and David three days and was very happy. We caught fish every day. They will work their tail off to catch you fish and work your tail off if you into casting. Even before we arrived Lisa was great to work with. She is very prompt and helpful. She recommended a big boat for snorkeling for... More

We did the half day fishing trip which was a great choice. Captain Mauricio and his Mate David are super friendly. They are very professional and familiar with the costal area. They know exactly where fish can be found. Besides the two mahi mahi (definitively the highlight) we caught several tunas. During our trip we also spotted dolphines, turtles and... More

Mauricio and David were awesome fishing guides for our honeymoon in Costa Rica. They literally had us catching fish all day while other boats were obviously not having as good of success. So glad I found these guys on trip advisor and booked our fishing trip with them and highly recommend it to anyone else visiting the area.

We want to thank TripAdvisor too because if it were'nt for them, we'd never would have had you on the boat! We appreciate your review and are glad you had an amazing day out with us. It is always great to be out on the boat when the fish cooperate! Thank you again for your review. Happy Holidays! More

The main activity for our trip to Costa Rica was fishing. Typically we go to Baja, but this year we decided to go to Costa Rica. After reading reviews for all the fishing operations in the area, we were left somewhat perplexed at who to choose. We almost decided to not book any fishing and just make arrangements once we...
