Hi Bob and Mike Scott, Andy and I arrived safely home. Thanks for everything at Silver King Lodge and Thanks to Mike Murley for a first rate operation. The staff at Silver King is second to none. We have been in a lot of fishing camps and I have to say that Silver King ranks in our all-time best experiences.... More

Fantastic tarpon fishing with big fish, a great guide and a great lodging experience. The people at this lodge were very attentive and friendly, with 3 very nicely prepared meals every day. The lodge and rooms are very clean. After a long day of catching fish, I would come back to the lodge and have a cold, freshly made fruit... More

We are a group of experienced tarpon fishermen with historical expectations of boating 1-3+ tarpon per day. When looking for a new place this year we tried to evaluate past experiences (1) Boca Grande and FL Keys becoming more pressured and crowded (2) Spring FL weather unseasonably unreliable (3) Overall satisfaction with hookup/boated fish ratios disappointing. A number of factors... More

As usual I was not disappointed. This place is awesome. I caught a 130 pound Tarpon with a flyrod up in the river and two... More

The only comment I'll make about Epeddie's review is that our tarpon population doesn't migrate - the tarpon population in the Barra del Colorado; including our awesome 'yellowbelly' subspecies; are always present. Otherwise, we're glad Epeddie and friend had a great time! More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Silver King Lodge is a sport fishing lodge in the renown Barra del Colorado Wildlife Preserve / eco-park some 140 miles north of San Jose, located near the mouth of the Rio del Colorado - focusing on the Atlantic tarpon, a fantastic game fish known for spectacular leaps and its hard-fighting nature. We also offer opportunities to fish for a wide variety of fresh-water, salt-water inshore, and salt-water off-shore fish - including tuna. The Silver King Lodge features 12 double-occupancy rooms, all air conditioned - with free satellite internet / WiFi; satellite TV and a plethora of amenities that includes our outdoor pool, hot tub, sauna, massages, bar with inclusive local liquors, local beer and house wines - as well as a culinary staff that will make sure you are ready to bring in that 175 lb tarpon! All meals are included. And you can pack light for the jungle - our housekeeping staff provides free, same-day laundry service! Our renown guides are ready with our provided rods and tackle aboard our own ocean-capable boats - equipped with marine radios and fish finders - to take you to where the fish are... Because that's why you came! We include arrival car service at Juan Santamaria International Airport in San Jose, then either charter air service (a short 35 minute flight) or car / boat transportation (about 5 scenic hours) to and from the lodge and airport transportation back to Juan Santamaria International Airport in San Jose. We can also arrange hotel lodging in San Jose. ... more   less
