Love Big Fish?

Then you are going to love fishing with us. Flamingo & Tamarindo has some of Costa Rica's wildest sport fishing!

You may only get the opportunity to catch the “big one” once in a lifetime. Captain Glen Cortes and first mate Manuel Perez will give you the best sport fishing experience of your life.

Fishing in Costa Rica is excellent all year long. We specialize in offshore bill fishing such as Marlin (Blue, Black, Stripe) Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Wahoo. We fish the Flamingo, Tamarindo, Conchal, and Potrero regions year round.

Fishing will vary with prevailing conditions, but here’s how it generally runs for the more popular species. Look for winds north of Cabo Vela from about December into mid-May. On the Pacific, it’s common to release several Sailfish and even a Marlin or two in a single day. There are also Dorado, Yellowfin Tuna, Wahoo, Roosterfish, a variety of Snapper, Grouper, Rainbow Runners, Mackerel and much more.


Our courteous, experienced crew will make your day of fishing one to remember.

If you are not an avid fisherman, you are not alone. Many anglers, young and old, have caught their first fish ever on our boat. Our Captain and crew will show you how to work our “state of the art" tackle and you will be coming home with dinner (or at least a great story) and hopefully some incredible pictures to ensure the memories last a lifetime!

Wow, what a fantastic day! Four of us went out on the Wetass II and it was amazing. Everyone caught fish and my son caught 2 Yellowfin Tuna which were cleaned and packed up for the best sushi that night. Captain Glen could not of been more knowledgeable, friendly and FUN!
