Frequently Asked Questions: • Do I need a fishing License? - Yes, you will need to purchase an individual fishing license as required by Costa Rican Law. It will cost $15 for 1 month, or $26 for a year. You can buy one at the marina office in the morning of your charter, if you do not have one. The vessel fishing license does not cover the individual anglers. • What do I need to bring on a charter? - A positive attitude - Sun block, lip balm, Polarized sunglasses, hat, loose SPF rated clothing and a light rain jacket in green season - Comfortable shoes or sandals - non-marking soles please - Swimsuit - Towel - Camera - iPod - Copy of passport - Enough cash to tip the crew (20% is standard) and purchase fishing licenses if you do not already have one. - Any specialty food or beverage items - The central Pacific seas are among the calmest in the world, but if you are prone to motion sickness, you may take a pill such as Dramamine or Bonine, the night before • What should I wear? - I highly suggest bringing light colored, SPF (sun protection) rated clothing. The tropical sun here can be intense, and the proper gear can make your vacation much more enjoyable. - A lightweight hat, and long sleeve shirts really help. I find the “Quick dry” lycra type material clothes (like for sports) works much better than cotton. It drys quickly, and allows the breeze to blow through, providing a cooling effect like air conditioning compared to a sweat soaked cotton shirt. • What do charters include? - Full-day charters: lunches, fruit, snacks, soft drinks, beer and bottled water - Half-day charters: snacks only, soft drinks, beer and bottled water • Can we keep our fish? Does the crew sell fish? - Marlin, sailfish and roosterfish are on a catch and release basis only. - You may keep all meat fish you catch: tuna, dorado (mahi-mahi), wahoo, snapper and grouper. • Can I bring my own Tackle? - Yes, you are welcome to bring your own tackle.
