A friend and I had a full day reserved aboard the Las Brisas. We met Tom ahead of time and were really excited about the trip.

The trip ended up meeting and exceeding all our expectations!! It was one of those trips that will never be forgotten! The fishing was great and the crew was just as memorable. It was a great trip and the crew were like friends of ours just minutes into the trip.

I've been on many other charter boats in various countries and this was probably the most enjoyable trip that I've ever been a part of. Highly recommended!

My family and I spent 10 days recently in Costa Rica. Three of those days we very eventful, thanks to Captain Tom! He hooked the family up for a trip on the catamaran snorkeling adventure, zip lining, and fishing on the Las Brisas, We had a wonderful time!
Captain Tom was full of stories about the area, as well as helpful hints on the places to hit on our visit. He was very personable and super good at not only entertaining us, but our three children. Our 1/2 day of fishing was very successful, catching a record fish, several others, and a yellow tail tuna, that we got to taste right off the boat! Who gets to do that! Not only that, but Captain Tom invited us back to his house, were he cooked up the fish, and made us lunch! What a day and trip to remember!
Thank you for everything,
Julie, Bryan, Chloe, Bryce and Bailee

Half day charter with 3 guys. Capt Tom picked us up at our house and drove us to the marina. His dog was sick (hope it's better after the trip to San Jose!) so Alex and Manuel (did I remember that correctly?) took us out. Spotted some dolphins on the ride out of the harbor, which was bonus.

We boated 11 fish total, including 7 Dorado. Would have liked to have had a bit more action, but that's fishing.

During lulls the mate offered us drinks, fresh fruits and other snacks. He was very attentive to keep us from getting bored, which was appreciated.

Would have liked to have gone out with Tom so we could have heard more stories, but am sympathetic to having a sick dog.

Would gladly recommend Las Brisas to anyone in the Playa Flamingo area.

Myself and a group of family and friends had the pleasure of a day with Cap. Tom aboard the Las Brisas fishing boat. While powering out to his favorite spots, Tom, a raconteur extraordinaire, entertained us with amusing,sometimes hilarious tales of life in Costa Rica. Besides entertainment, we were treated to a history and geography lesson.....he is one very knowledgeable sea captain. On our trip out to the fishing hole, we were lucky enough to see an abundance of marine life......dolphins swimming alongside, rays performance acrobatics, and huge turtles just doing their thing...fabulous for us city slickers. The main event was equally special. Tom and his mate,Pat, headed us right into a large school of Dorado. We landed a number of those and had a fight with a sailfish, which, my fault, we didn't get to the boat. Tom and Pat made the entire fishing part of the day excellent. Then does anything taste quite so good as a fish caught mere hours before it is eaten. We invited our captain and crew to join us for dinner and the fish was cleaned expertly by Pat. So with a glass of Imperial and a fabulous sunset, the perfect end to a perfect day. I say fishing with Cap. Tom is a blast and a treat for people of all ages.

It is the great fishing when you are with the great captain.
We have tried and enjoyed both a 1/2 day and a full day trips on different visits. Day trip was more fun for our family.
Thanks Tom!
