Sábalo Costa Rica

Explore Barra del Colorado with Sábalo Charters who offer day fishing trips from San Jose! Captain Franco Alvarenga is an avid Tarpon angler who loves finding innovative ways of catching the Silver King. The crew will provide transport from the country’s capital city, so you don’t have to think about anything other than fishing for one of the most desirable game fish species.

Their small and stealthy flats boat has recently been restored. Fitted with very accurate fish finders and powered by a 150 HP Yamaha engine, the vessel will get you to the best fishing grounds in the blink of an eye. At 24’, the boat can comfortably accommodate up to 4 guests.

The crew is a group of people that describe themselves as ‘regular people who fish for fun and compete in Tarpon tournaments’. While they do indeed fish for the sheer enjoyment of it, they also take the sport extremely seriously.

They are so devoted to Tarpon fishing that they make their own lures. These lures are similar to artificial flies but used with conventional light tackle and spinning tackle rather than fly rods. This novel method has proven to be very successful. The team’s victories in Tarpon tournaments, as well as their strong record for getting guests to catch big Tarpon in a short period of time, speaks for the effectiveness of their approach.

Sábalo’s team is made up of local people who are passionate about catching Tarpon. They welcome all types of anglers on board and they can get beginners to land their first Tarpon in as little as ten minutes. For people who have never fished for Tarpon before, they recommend getting a full medical check before coming on board, as the sport can be very exciting and demanding.

Come and land that dream Tarpon specimen with Sábalo Costa Rica, and have an adventure of a lifetime!
