Would you like to experience great fishing that is perfect for the family as well? A short 20-minute run takes you to deep waters, where an abundance of fish awaits you.
The Flamingo Sport fishing seasons parallel those of other Guanacaste sportfishing destinations. All types of fish can be caught 365 days a year, but as elsewhere in the country, the Costa Rica fishing calendar in the Flamingo area has its peak times.
We practice catch and release on all billfish and use circle hooks (easy retrieval) to conserve the big game fish of the Pacific.
We have a variety of boats with features, equipment and sizes that will make your fishing experience unforgettable.
Our captains are experienced. On board you will enjoy beverages and snacks during tour.
So, are you looking for an enjoyable deep sea fishing experience where the world comes to fish?, then sportfishing in Playa Flamingo is what you have been looking for.
In just one hour by boat, you will get the most productive fishing places in the area for deep water fishing species.
We catch and release sailfish, black, blue and striped marlin and keep for dinner Mahi Mahi and yellowfin tuna.
Flamingo fishing can be dicey in January-March
A piece of advice: between January and the end of March, the Papagayo winds sweep across the Flamingo area. Flamingo is a less-sheltered bay than is Tamarindo to the south, and during the above period Flamingo fishing captains will not venture offshore when the winds are up. Even some inshore charters might be cancelled. A lot of the Flamingo fishing captains take their boats down to Carillo/Guanamar or Nosara to escape the winds.
So, we recommend that if you already have your stay booked in the Flamingo area between January and end of March, but are dead set on fishing offshore but haven’t yet booked your charter, an option might be Tamarindo. It’s only a 35-minute drive. Your Costa Rica offshore sport fishing charter out of Tamarindo is a lot less likely to be confined to an inshore trip than will your Flamingo fishing charter.
