The Yellowfin - Sportfishing

The Yellowfin - Sportfishing Charters will provide an action-packed day by taking you to some of the greatest fishing spots in Playa Flamingo, Costa Rica.

This magnificent region is located in Potrero Bay, and your Charter is based on a mile long sandy beach also known as White Beach. It is also an area with the most diverse ranges of tropical deep-sea fish species such as Mahi Mahi, Marlin, and Sailfish.

The Yellowfin is a 27’ custom built sportfishing boat, which was built in 2016, and is powered by a 115 HP Yamaha engine with a maximum cruising speed of 25 knots.

The boat has a GPS system and a VHF radio for contact with the Coast Guard, life jackets and fire extinguishers for safety, an icebox for your catch, and a toilet which is an absolute must if you are spending a day on the water with your family and children.

Spearfishing and snorkeling equipment is also available if you wish to do either activity, and the crew will be happy to teach you how to use them.
