8 of us went out all day but the fishing was very slow. Caught 3 sailfish and nothing else. Long day, a lot of money. The staff tried and w ere very friendly and professional. It just wasn't our day. The boat itself excellent ,air conditioned, all geared up.
Bottom line , just bad luck but I would use these guys again

I booked two offshore trips with these guys while in Costa Rica for ten days. What an impressive operation. From my first contact with the owners son (Mandela?) to the First Mate (Roy) and the Captain (Oscar) I was impressed beyond expectations. We fished on a 42ft Hatteras and hooked up to approximately (14) sailfish on each trip. This is no fly by night operation, the boat is clean, the staff are professional, the food is excellent. For the price that we paid (under $325/per person including tip) it was more than we expected. For more proof go to youtube and search "Reel in Luxury" and see for yourself the fun and excitement that we enjoyed.

We had a lot of fun on this adventure. We went with the whole family - we had a blast, caught too much fish (like that's a problem!), then docked so we can snorkel for a bit with the gorgeous fishies.

Some people got motion sickness, some got too much sun so be sure to drink lots of fluids (provided), snack to keep your sugar levels up (also provided), wear sunblock, a hat and go indoors/to covered areas to temper the sun.

We caught and released three sailfish and raised three more. Captain Glen apologized for a slow day. Imagine apologizing for *only* catching three sailfish! This boat sets a high bar. My father, brother-in-law and I all had an absolutely terrific time. If three sails is just ok I can't wait to fish with Reel In again and see what hot action looks like!

A few notes. Lilian and Mandel were easy to communicate with over email. They made arrangements for pickup and drop off which happened like clockwork. The boat was rigged and ready for us when we arrived- no hanging around the dock. The fishing gear was in good shape and first mate Coco kept the cockpit organized and his clients comfortable. As the afternoon wore on and sun drove us into the air conditioned cabin, Capt. Glen and Coco remained focused on fishing, reacting as fast to a strike late in the afternoon as they did in the morning. That's a tight crew.

The cost of this kind of fishing is necessarily high but Reel In offers great value. I will definitely fish with them next time in CR.
