Owner description: We work hard at making your day on the water the best it can be. I encourage you to read all our reviews then call us. Our fishing trips are the best there are in Costa Rica! The Dream On is a luxurious fishing vessel that has twin 300 hp Caterpillar diesel engines, live bait well, tuna tubes, Penn International and Shimano professional grade tackle and tons more lures than any boat. We almost always catch fish! Our crew is bi-lingual in spanish and english and work hard to provide every client on every trip, a fantastic fishing experience. Full day rate for 1-6 people is $1300, half day rate for 1-6 people is $800. We can take a maximum of 6 people on the Dream On, a 10m (33ft) Blackfin cabin cruiser. We pick up our clients on the beach, usually in front of their hotel, using our small skiff. We will pick up clients anywhere from just north of the Playa Flamingo Marina Beach to the 4 Seasons on the tip of the Papagayo Peninsula. If you are staying south of Playa Flamingo, we can arrange transportation at a reasonable cost. EVERYTHING IS INCLUDED IN OUR FISHING TRIP except for the tip for the crew. We provide fresh made lunches, snacks, fresh fruits, and beverages. We can try to provide for any special request if given at least one day notice and if there is any added cost, we'll let you know beforehand. Pura Vida! Over the past 5 years, we have had only excellent and very good reviews and a year ago, one terrible review from a lady on 3 different medications, who apparently got very sea sick. Her friends paid to fish a full day and refused to return early, so she gave us a nasty review. Had I known she was over medicated, I would have insisted she not board the boat. Your comfort and safety are the number one priority!

“Great Day for Fishing”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

What a wonderful trip we had, the boat was immaculate and very comfortable and had a good washroom. Our lunch was delicious, lots of snacks and cold drinks, even coffee. The weather was superb, but catching the 150 lb sailfish was the best. Thank you to the crew for a job well done.
Would definitely go again.

“THE BEST VACATION EVER!!!”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Dream was by far the BEST day of our vacation! In time in the morning. The owner and his crew could not have been more friendly and accommodating! And so knowledgeable. We caught a 70 pound red snapper afew beautiful anb bonitos. Lots of sea turtles swam around us. We were served breakfast, lunch and awesome snacks. When the day was over we met the owner for dinner at a restaurant and the made us a beautiful meal the red snPper and wahoo. Amazingly blessed that day!!!

We are always working hard to be the best there is when it comes to fishing in Costa RIca! Thank you for fishing with us and spending a relaxing day on the water of the Gulf of Papagayo. The fish is as fresh as it gets when you have it cooked for dinner that night. Looking forward to seeing you again soon in the land of Pura VIda!

“Excellent Fishing Trip”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

I have been on a few fishing trips in Costa Rica and Dream On Sport Fishing is by far the best choice. The boat is in excellent condition, very clean, and has ample room to lay down why you wait for your dream fish. The boat was well stocked with water, fruit drinks and of course beer. The first mate even cut up some fresh fruit and then made a sandwich lunch about half way through the trip. The captain and the first mate were extremely knowledgable, safe, and friendly. To cap it off, we landed 2 large rooster fish including one that was 60lbs.

Happy New Year!
