Attraction details
Owner description: The KINGFISHER is 31 foot Palm Beach, with full electronics, tower and outriggers, offering ample shade and room for up to 5 anglers, it is set up for the serious fishermen as well as the novice angler. We have been sending home satisfied anglers year after year to the point that the majority of our business is now repeat customers, and word of mouth. We strive to take fishing to a more personal level. We encourage angler participation, and while at first (especially to the novice) it may seem difficult, given a good day it is hard not to catch the fever.

A great day on the ocean. Caught a sailfish, It was beautiful and exciting. All the crew were a lot of fun. Would do it again.

We had a great time with Captain Rick & Crew on the Kingfisher. We had a group of 6 venture along the Costa Rica coastline in a half-day fishing trip. Captain Rick was very warm and welcoming - picking us up on the beach and being both a tour guide and fishing guide. In addition to having beer, water, pineapple, and snacks waiting for us, he also had an iPod hookup. Our ride was smooth, and all 6 of us caught multiple fish - mackerel, red snapper, and bonito -- appropriate for our inland fishing adventure. After catching our fill, Rick took us out a deeper into the ocean to check for deep sea fish (which we didn't find), but we did see several dolphins as well as two sea turtles! All in all, it was a very relaxing and fun fishing adventure. Rick has been in the Samara area for 25+ years and can answer all questions. Though we only fished inland, he has also caught mahi-mahi, sailfish, and others!! Very highly recommended!

Rick is the owner and he personally took us out on the boat. Very nice and made sure that we had a great time. Then he took time out to meet us for dinner!!
It doesn't get more personalized than that...this is the best!

We have known for Rick for some time now and have sent several of our own clients to spend the day aboard Kingfisher. Every client returns with an ear to ear smile on their face and something for the grill! Stories shared at the dinner table comment on his professionalism and quality of his boat and tackle. Rick is an experienced Sport Fishing Captain who knows where to find the fish! Kingfisher offers the comfort and luxury that many boats in the area cannot compete with. Lunches are not brown bag by any means, rather gourmet style sandwiches, snacks and coolers are full! If you are looking for a great day out on the water, call Rick and let him offer you the best the area has to offer!!!!!
