Super professional crew that works really hard to keep the lines tight I’m sure not everyone is always successful but I was amazed at how many large sail fish we caught the crew didn’t lose any. Great lunch clean boat super organized. And most important of all the air conditioner was awesome for a family event you got to be able to duck inside and cool down occasionally. You can find newer more expensive boats in the harbor but it’s not worth the extra money this is the one to get. Thank you!!!!! Six adults three children all day charter mid February 9 SF bunch of ground fish.

Talk about a great trip!!! We wanted a sailfish and a big mahi. We had lines in the water by 8 am and by 8:05 my son had a huge sailfish on. A little while later we had a 60” mahi. Added a few dozen smaller mahi too. Mission accomplished. Food was amazing with tons of snacks and drinks and a fabulous lunch meal. Pepe and Jorge were a blast to hang out with and we’re a real treat for the whole family.

My Wife and I visited Quepos a second time, this time on our honeymoon. Both times we did an offshore fishing excursion. The first fishing trip in 2019 was also with Carribsea and was such a fantastic experience, we decided to re-book them for our most recent trip. Just like before, the boat was great, the crew was amazing and the fishing was some of the best we have ever had only short of our last trip with them. We started out on Tuna and everytime we got a fish on the boat, another one would hook up. We took in the biggest Tuna I personally have ever caught. We spent some time bottom fishing just to rest our arms a bit before trolling out for sailfish. Even though it isn't really the best time of year for fishing, we still were able to hook up a sail. We would highly recommed Carribsea, both boats and both crews are well worth it if you plan on fishing.

We spent the day fishing on "Sunny 1 ". A small boat but we caught fish and had a good day non the less. The Captain was friendly and accommodating. We tipped 35% of the Charter fee to the first and 2nd mates. Unfortunately the first mate, William was brutish and dismissive and since while fishing, we actually spend most of our time on deck with the first/second mates, it was a bit off putting. In addition, the first mate filmed ( with the boats camera) our catch and overall high points of the excursion. He assured us that he would send us the link to obtain the pictures and never did as promised. Next day I visited the doc and left word requesting that he forward us the link and still no reply from William or the Captain. Our pictures' of the day, apparently gone now! This boat is a little less expensive that most but I would consider looking at another charter. It would be money well spent.

Captain Brian and the Mates, William and Marlow are great! We caught Blue Marlin, Striped Marlin, Yellow Fin Tuna, and three Sailfish at the same time. Everyone works hard to make sure it is an exciting fishing experience. They provide drinks, adult beverages, and a very tasty lunch! We booked four days with the Sunny 1 Team and are already talking about planning a trip to come back and fish with them again.

Fishing with the Sunny 1 has been far beyond anything we ever expected! Captain Brian, mates William and Marlow are off the chain fisherman and are a hard working crew determined to ensure your fishing experience is above and beyond all your expectations. Two Marlins, three sails and a beautiful yellowfin tuna on our first trip. Second trip was two crazy large Bull Mahi, a blue marlin and a sailfish. We are already planning our next trip! Much thanks and appreciation to the crew of the SUNNY ONE!

We had a great full day trip about 35 miles off shore with Captain Jorge and Pepe on Muy Caliente. They were more than helpful and knew right where to fish. My husband reeled in a 103 inch sailfish (which we released) and a second one also, which was a bit smaller. We also caught numerous mahi mahi and tuna, which we took back to our villa to share! They also took us to a spot where there were over 100 porpoises jumping and swimming all over. I’m not sure who loved that more…our 11 year old or me! It topped off the perfect day. We have another trip booked with the same crew in a couple of days!

The whole experience was amazing ! Captain Brian and the mates William and Marlo went above and beyond to make our fishing trip on the Sunny 1 a perfect day . We caught two bull Dorado , one huge sail fish and a big blue marlin . We saw any least a thousand spinner dolphin. If you are staying at Los Suenos resort in Costa Rica you should book a day on the Sunny 1 !!

Cpt. Brian and crew were awesome! Within the first 45 minutes or so we hooked onto a very nice sailfish. We got into some yellowfin tuna and hooked onto 4, landed 3 (my bad, not the crew🤦🏽‍♀️). As if that wasn’t enough we landed a great Mahi-mahi!
Had a great day and wouldn’t hesitate to go with these guys again! As a matter of fact, we are, tomorrow! Hopefully, my arms will hold out! Lunch was fabulous!! Big thanks to Capt. Brian, William(Willy) and Marvin! See you in the morning!!

Had a great time aboard the Caribsea. Fishing was a little slow, but the captain and crew did everything they could to get us on some fish. We ended up with one blue marlin and one mahi mahi. Highly recommended!
