Good boat for fishing out of Herradura Bay

Last years we used some locals (trying to help out the little guy ) out of Herradura bay and got the $600 1/2 day tour of sucky fishing and crappy gear....the barely went off shore and didnt have any gear that was reliable. i have found this to be the case several time , even out of Los suenos Marina with some of thier high priced boats. Quepos only faired slightly better.

On March 4th, 2015 we had a great trip fishing with Capt. Bill Kieldsen on "the Sailfish" http://costaricasailfishbill.com/

11 Sails on a full day private charter trip, when other boats were reporting very low numbers. Great crew, and an awesome boat to fish off of. Let him know Ethan sent you his way!

Talk to Dave Embry at Costa Rica Dreams Sportfishing in the office on the dock at Los Suenos. They are the official charter company for the marina. Great boats, great gear and great results!

Ask if the captain have legal papers to work in our country…in case of any accident…no money if the captain has not legal papers to work in our country…play safe and play with the right people..legal people…!!
