Papagayo Gulf Sport Fishing - North Pacific Tours is a fully licensed and insured fishing company ready to take you out for a full day or half day of fishing. Snorkeling and Surfing to Witches and Ollie's Point is also available. We offer a wide variety of fishing options in the Papagayo Gulf: inshore, offshore, coastal, bottom, casting, fly and spear fishing. If you are looking to save money or prefer not to fish alone, Lisa can arrange a split-charter with other fisherman/woman looking for the same. Captain Daniel has over 40 years of fishing experience and his mate Mauricio, fluent in English, has over 20 years. These guys love to fish and are fishing professionals. We now have a GoPro camera to film your fishing adventure in which Lisa can cut/edit your video to be posted on Youtube. Snorkeling can be included at the end of your fishing trip at no additional cost. This is a great tour for the entire family to explore the beautiful Pacific Ocean. Costa Rica sport fishing is known worldwide as one of the greatest sport fishing/surfing destination plus the weather is great almost all year round. For the intermediate and experienced surfer, trips to Witches Rock and Ollie's are offered with a guide. We look forward to hearing from you. Pura Vida!

Had a greay 6 hour excursion wiyh Moe and David. No roosters in the boat but it wasn't from lack of trying. Picky fish! We did catch 4 types of tuna, bonita and mackerel. It was a great day fishing.

Maurcio, his mate David and Lisa are a great team. It was seamless to understand the types of trips and book our charter through Lisa.

Thank you for your review! In my previous life before Costa Rica, I started out as a secretary and then moved on into marketing. My background has been the stepping stone to creating North Pacific Tours and with Mauricio's knowledge of the Papagayo Gulf and having always worked on the water, we are a win win team! More

Had an excellent experience with captain Mauricio and his mate David. They were extremely courteous and informative. Made my first rooster fishing experience a memorable once. I would highly recommend chartering them. They're honest and know where the fish are.

Great trip! Both Mauricio and David worked extremely hard to put us on fish all day long.

Highly recommended if your thinking of chartering a boat in the area. Captain mauricio always had a plan B which is vital in fishing as things rarely go to plan first time, and his local knowledge was brilliant. They worked really hard to find us the roosters we wanted, we'll definitely be back to fish with them.
