Wasabi Fishing Team

Wasabi Fishing Team prides itself on offering the ultimate big game fishing experience in the beautiful warm waters around Costa Rica. Based out of Tamarindo, on Costa Rica’s Pacific coast, you’ll not only be fishing in some of the best waters found anywhere in the region, but you’ll also be surrounded by some of the most stunning nature and pristine beaches Central America has to offer.

The Wasabi is a 34’ Ocean Master sportfishing boat that was completely overhauled in 2012, and which offers ample space on board for 6 anglers.  She comes powered by twin 300 HP Yamaha outboards which can get you up to 30 knots, as you gently sail to sea.

The boat also comes equipped with GPS and fishfinder, as well as outriggers and downriggers to give your lines the best spread, and a fighting chair to help wrestle in those blue water beasts. It can be chartered for sightseeing, surfing at Witches Rock, and spearfishing or snorkeling. Just get in touch with your captain, and he’ll look after all your needs.

Captain William Ong and his skilled first mate know that to catch the best, you need to bring the best. They provide tournament-grade Penn International and Shimano gear, with a choice of light and heavy tackle and the option to set up for trolling, kite fishing, jigging, popping, or bottom fishing. They promise to work tirelessly, switching things up or heading to new spots if the lines stop twitching, and working with you the whole way to make sure you get exactly what you’re after.

Wasabi Fishing Team offers the complete package for your trip to Costa Rica, with luxury accommodation at Casa Wasabi an option too. This custom-built walled villa complex features every conceivable luxury, including a swimming pool, jacuzzi, and three spacious bedrooms. In addition to the main house there are also two stylish studio apartments and a pool house.

Get in touch and tailor your trip to your group, as you embark on the vacation of a lifetime!
