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!

“Rockin' on the Dream On!”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

This was undoubtedly the best fishing trip I have ever been on! I'm a Floridian and do a LOT of fishing - have been on a lot of charter boats. The captain and mate were the best I have ever seen. Their knowledge of the waters and their expertise in working the lines were awesome. Yes, we were in a location known as some of the best fishing in the world, but captain Adelso and mate Errol made the magic happen! A great boat with very nice equipment - all top of the line Penns and Shimanos. I highly recommend this charter. Our tip was so good (6 sails, all between 150 - 200 pounds, and some Mahi) we booked them again a few days later.

We work hard for every group on every trip to make sure we do all we can to put the big ones (and some little ones) on board to make your trip one to remember.

Thanks for taking the time to give us an excellent review and we'll keep the lines tight and the tackle in top shape waiting for your return to paradise!

Thanks again and pura vida!

“Fish with the Pros in Costa Rica”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

This is a top-notch trip. I've fished all over the Carribean and in Mexico on the Pacific coast on many different boats. Adelso and Errol are the most knowledgeable and aggressive team that I've had the pleasure to work with...6 big Pacific sails on our first trip with them. Really nice boat, new tackle...all Penn International and Shimano TLD's...highly recommended!!

Hola Farley!

Thank you and the guys for fishing with us and taking the time to give us an excellent review!

We love hearing our well oiled team work hard for our clients and that their skills and our equipment are top notch!

Costa Rican waters are filled with a huge variety of gamefish and to catch 6 big sail fish and 1 nice mahi mahi on a 1 day charter is a great day fishing!

Thanks for fishing with us on 2 separate full day trips and we'll look forward to seeing you and the guys back in paradise soon!

Thank you and pura vida!

“Dream On / First Class”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

4 huge sailfish in 2 1/2 hours. The boat, equipment, & crew were first class in every way. I have fished the Atlantic & Gulf for 40 years & know there can be a tremendous difference in service from boat to boat. I would give the Dream On my highest rating! Craig Coleman Atlanta, GA

“Best fishing ever”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Starting with the on time for departure, they were ready to go at 6 am, the captain and his mate were very professional, and attend, they treated me with respect and knew where to go to catch the good legal fish. We caught a lot of fish that day, and the experience was with no comparison. I will definitely recommend this company if you are looking for a professional service. Oh I almost forgot, the food was great, lots to drink on the boat and fresh fruits for every body.

Hola Andy and thank you for taking the time to give us such an excellent review!! We can leave early (6AM from Playa Ocotal) when we know we have serious fishermen who'll be ready that early as well... Making the run north of Santa Rosa Park usually pays off with lots of fillets!!

This is the time of year when we have the best options, and glad to hear you caught 5 wahoo, 2 sailfish, 1 big rooster fish, 2 needlefish and 4 bonito for the full day!

We work hard on every trip to provide an excellent experience for everyone and the best feedback is when we hear we'll be recommended....thanks again and we'll look forward to having you back on board soon!

Gracias and pura vida,
