Papagayo Charter Information

We offer a variety of charter packages to meet the needs of all anglers. Specialty trips are available and we encourage you to get in touch to learn more about the versatility of our vessel and fishing techniques. For the most part – a full day charter is your best bet for catching a variety of species and targeting big game.

Full Day Charters 8 hours – $899

Our 8 hours full-day charters allow us to travel farther and fish longer. On this full-day charter we can venture out up to 20 miles off into the north or south of the Gulf of Papagayo, to produce plentiful and large fish such as: roosterfish, marlin, wahoo or sailfish.

Half-Day Charters 4 hours – $599

Our 4 hour half-day charters allow us to fish for varied species, and allow us to fish at the middle of the Gulf of Papagayo and inshore fishing. Typical half-day charters run from 7:30 am-12:30 pm or 1pm-5pm*

All Charters can accommodate up to 5 passengers maximum.

All Charters include:

Tackle, Dead Bait, fresh fruits, snacks, soft drinks, a lot of beers, natural juices bottles, water bottles and lunch (only full day fishing) and Ice. We catch our live bait on the way out. If you would like to have your live bait on the boat, we can arrange for various bait boats to provide it for an additional fee.
