My girlfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed a half day of fiishing with our guide, Bogdan, and our captain, Chepe. They picked us up in their boat from our hotel's beach at about six in the morning and took us out into the Gulf of Papagayo where we trolled for about three hours and caught three good-sized Mahi Mahi and one large Skipjack. I was surprised we caught so many fish as this time of year is considered the offseason but that's the beauty of fishing, you simply never know what you're going to catch no matter when and where you're fishing. After fishing for a few hours, we ate a lunch of fresh grilled Mahi and Bogdan's delicious homemade potato salad on a secluded beach. We had the opportunity to do a bit of snorkeling off of the beach, as well. At the end of the day, around 12:30p, we were dropped off on our hotel's beach and were very happy that we had chosen to hire Fishing Adventures and had Bogdan and Chepe as our guides for a incredible day on the water. I would highly recommend this company and look forward to using them again in the future.

We did the fishing tour -- they originally signed us up to share the 8-2 fishing with another couple, but when the other couple backed out, they offered to do a private tour for the same price from 8-12 with a captain and guide. That was awesome as they really didn't have to do that! They showed up on time and picked us up at the hotel beach. We caught a big mahi and a tuna, which they filleted for us on the boat, and several bonito which we threw back. We even stopped at a beach for snorkeling on the way back. We had a great time and would highly recommend them! We booked by email -- one thing to know is that their email communication style was a bit odd (repeated cut-pastes from google translate, I think) but the message got across so don't be spooked! They're a good company and great value.

Bogdan and his assistant picked us up at the Hilton Beach right on time. He had everything ready including snacks, a cooler full of drinks and live bait. We had scheduled the 6 hour trip and he made no promises regarding the quantity or quality of the days catch due to it being the off season. About an hour in we caught our only 20lb mahi. The boat had a cabin so there was a great spot to enjoy the views from the bow. We visited a beautiful beach only accessible by boat and bottom fished around the stunning shore. Overall is was a relaxing day.

We had an amazing time on our half day fishing trip with Fishing Adventures! Even better, was the option we had to take the fish back to our hotel (all prepared!) and eat them that night for dinner! Stopping at the island and seeing the howler monkeys and snorkel for an hour was an added bonus! Staff was courteous and friendly and pineapple snack on the way back to our beach was delicious!

We (my GF and I) did the "Special Tour" with Fishing Adventures on our last day in beautiful Costa Rica and we were NOT disappointed. The crew (Bogdan and Chepei) were AMAZING, knowledgable, friendly and extremely hardworking. The tour was a complete success, (not to mention VERY affordable) and we loved every second of our time on and off the water. Bogdan can cook a mean Mahi Mahi let me tell you.....Thank you so much Fishing Adventures (especially Bogdan and Chepei) for making our last day in CR a memorable one. We will MOST DEFINITELY BE BOOKING AGAIN with Fishing Adventures on our return trip to Costa Rica, I can't recommend this enough....these guys RULE!!!!!!!!!!
