Pesca Artesanal Tarcoles

Come experience the fantastic fishing opportunities of Costa Rica’s Provincia de Puntarenas alongside Pesca Artesanal Tarcoles fishing charters. You’ll have the chance to cast your line in these rich waters as you soak up the sun. In fact, the only thing hotter than the weather here is the fishing opportunities!

Captain Carlos Adanis Robles is the man behind the helm of Pesca Artesanal Tarcoles. He’s a local, lifelong angler who grew up in one of Costa Rica’s fishing communities, so it’s safe to say he knows a thing or two about exploring these waters.

Now, he uses his lifetime of knowledge and experience to provide exciting adventures that’ll see you coming face to gills with a whole host of impressive fish. If you’re newer to angling, or are looking for a family-friendly adventure, you’ll be going after Mahi Mahi, local Corvina, and Snapper species.

Want to battle some hard-fighting fish? Spend more time out on the water with Capt. Carlos and he’ll take you to Isla Tortuga to target anything from Marlin, to Roosterfish, to giant Tuna species. Because these fish are seriously feisty, Capt. Carlos recommends that you have some angling experience under your belt before taking them on!

Each adventure takes place on board your captain’s 24’ saltwater fishing vessel. She’s custom-built to provide a safe and comfortable journey on these waters and is decked out with all the required safety and navigational gear. She can accommodate up to 6 guests, so bring along the whole family or your best angling buddies.

Capt. Carlos will make sure you’re decked out with all the fishing gear you need for an exciting day on the water. If you’d like to mix up your angling adventure, he can also bring along some snorkeling gear – just be sure to request this in advance. No fishing license is required, so all you need to do is hop aboard Pesca Artesanal Tarcoles for a sun-drenched angling adventure!

Captain Carlos has been fishing for as long as he can remember – it's a lifelong passion of his! He's local to this area and grew up in a fishing community, so it only seemed natural for him to start up his very own charter company. It's safe to say he knows a thing or two about where the hotspots and honey holes are located, as well as the best techniques to use to hook the fish that live here. His favorite part of the job is meeting customers, and introducing anglers from all over the world to Costa Rica's fantastic angling opportunities. Come aboard and discover them for yourself!
