Perfect day! The crew was experienced, professional and so friendly. We were two families with 5 kids total and everyone had a great experience… especially the youngest one that had a million questions for the captain and crew. The boat was exceptionally clean; food was great; service outstanding.

I booked two offshore trips with these guys while in Costa Rica for ten days. What an impressive operation. From my first contact with the owners son (Mandela?) to the First Mate (Roy) and the Captain (Oscar) I was impressed beyond expectations. We fished on a 42ft Hatteras and hooked up to approximately (14) sailfish on each trip. This is no fly by night operation, the boat is clean, the staff are professional, the food is excellent. For the price that we paid (under $325/per person including tip) it was more than we expected. For more proof go to youtube and search "Reel in Luxury" and see for yourself the fun and excitement that we enjoyed.

These guys are THE BEST. We had an awesome time! They are very friendly and work SUPER hard to get fish and help you make sure you reel them in. We had a 9-year-old kiddo with us and she got sick halfway through - having an air-conditioned cabin was a lifesaver; she was able to take a nap and woke up refreshed and feeling great. We went on the 3/4 day excursion with Captain Michael and his crew and caught 4 dorados and 4 sailfish. After reeling in one of the sailfish, I was quickly aware of how tough it is --- these guys worked SO hard for us. We are very appreciative of them! Super fantastic experience -- if you are thinking about deep-sea fishing, choose these guys!

This boat is nothing close to luxury as advertised. It had no A/C and was very basic. The captain was not the friendliest however I must say the crew made up for that. Did a 3/4 day fishing and was offered 1 sandwich for lunch (ham&cheese) to my surprise as the website said it was a big lunch. The owner well he is a scam artist. We contacted him to rectify the issues and he didn’t even respond after several attempts we told him we will write a review and to my surprise he said go ahead. If you want luxury and a clean boat I suggest you keep as far from this boat as possible

Don’t ruin your vacation. Absolute disaster. We arrived on time (prior to 6:40 AM) for our charter Monday, only to sit around until 7:10 AM before the mate came to find us. As soon as he met us, he asked for the balance of our payment - for which I handed him the same credit card I booked with. I was then informed that it was cash only - which is clearly not what the email says (copy attached), and I was prepared to just pay the extra 13%. When we called Madel - he said he would “never tell me that” we could pay with a credit card - even though the crew had sent him a picture of his own email from my phone. I would have paid in cash - but the only ATM at the marina was out of cash (I had already tried just to have extra). We asked about PayPal with no response. Needless to say I was upset, as I was at the dock with my wife and 2 sons to fish - and they had no solution, and I could hear the captain (Michael) complaining about the “Gringos” and “plastico”. Mandel told me I was wrong, then told me to leave him alone when I told him he ruined our day. He subsequently sent me my deposit via PayPal - but for some reason couldn’t accept that for the balance.

Bottom line - STAY AWAY! We fished on the “Sportsman” the following day and had an absolutely great time. We booked them directly through the Marina.

There will always be problems in business. How you deal with them is the true sign of a quality organization. It was our last day in Quepos and we arrived at the docks for what I have been looking forward to for our entire trip deep sea fishing on a luxury boat - only to find out that the boat compressor was down and we would have no air, lights, microwave for food etc. (it was to be 98 that day). A disaster to be sure and I was upset to say the least; but the team at Reel In came to the plate and hit a home run. They offered to take us out the next day on their other larger boat and would handle any transportation or other needs we might have. Then to fill in our now vacant afternoon, they gave us a sunset snorkeling / dinner cruise with their other company, Sunset Cruises. I cannot praise the Reel In team enough. They went above and beyond all expectations to take care of us. Not to forget the exciting next day on the water with Oscar and his fantastic crew and although the fishing was slow by their standards, my wife and I did catch several sail fish and in the end had a wonderful day and great memories, thanks to the Reel In team....WE WILL BE BACK!!

Great fishing excursion. We caught 5 sailfish, one mahi mahi and hung out with a huge school of spinner dolphin. The sailfish are released and not brought on board. The Mahi was hooked, and immediately cleaned and packaged for us to take with but we left it with the crew. The boat was great and having the air conditioned cabin was why we chose this charter. It got really hot for us Northerners. Very well organized, fantastic and friendly fishermen, who happen to have cooked one of our favorite meals on board, well stocked with water, soda, beer. I would absolutely recommend Reel In.

Factor in a 20% gratuity - we didn't have quite that much as we weren't sure what the norm is, but those men worked very hard to make sure we had a successful trip.

This was a tip notch operation. So much more than I expected. Pick up and drop off from hotel was flawless. Lunch was great, hot cooked meal on a boat! And most importantly, the crew worked hard to make sure our day fishing was great. Spend the extra for the 36 ft with cabin if you have kids. Was a nice break to get out of the weather while waiting for the fish.

The trip is great for all. Good for individual to family. We fished in the estuary among the mangrove trees. The high tide came in at 1:00 PM and we bottom fished with live shrimp. We fished from about 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Pretty much anything in the ocean is in the estuary. Shark(2) red snapper(2), and others. No sea sick issue. Very different and unusual experience. As usual for our CR experience, good people involved in the trip

My son (16 years old) and I went out with these guys today and had a great time sailfish fishing off-shore. We had a captain and two mates--all of them were friendly and knowledgeable. We reeled in 10 monster sailfish and there were a few more that hopped off the line when reeling in. The boat was in great condition and the equipment was top-notch. Neither of us spoke Spanish but the crew was fluent enough in English to teach us some new knots and pass along a lot of knowledge of the area and local fishing.

To top it off the snacks and lunch were delicious. For lunch we had some of the best roasted chicken and mashed potatoes I've experienced in Costa Rica. Charter fishing isn't an inexpensive activity, so when you do commit, you want to have a good experience. These guys can provide a great day out on the water.
