What People Are Saying About Tuna (Yellowfin) Fishing in Costa Rica

"Great day, Massive tunas!"

Jorge Berrocal fished with Salt Hunt Charters on March 20, 2020

Went out on a full day looking for Tuna with Salt Hunt, needless to say they found them and I had the chance to take my personal best Yellow Fin Tuna. Will never forget that day! Highly recommend going out with these guys, they know the pacific ocean like the back of their hand! George

"Full day out on Papi Chulo"

Mitch Goodman fished with Papi Chulo Sportfishing on February 26, 2020

I’ve charted numerous boats in Costa Rica. I’ve had the most success on Papi Chulo. The captain is very knowledgeable of the local waters. I caught a 350 lb Marlin, many large Mahi’s, Tuna and sailfish. I’ve been out with them several times now and will continue. It’s a great deal and the captain and crew enjoy a good time.

"Good Eating Tonight"

Ron Bernard fished with Macho Sportfishing on February 11, 2020

Caught 6 Yellowfin Tuna today. Macho, Alex & Diego were great! Fun 1/2 day! Will do again next visit!

"Productive day!"

Michael Wiley fished with Talking Fish - 38’ Topaz Express on April 9, 2019

Capt Randy was very knowledgable and took us to the fish. Crew was helpful. We didn't get our Mahi or Snapper but caught plenty of Grouper and Tuna for dinner.

"Full Day Trip"

Jake Stuckey fished with Go Fish Costa Rica – 26' on December 31, 2018

We had a great trip with Capt. Dan’s crew. They were very knowledgeable and friendly to work with. We caught a good number of fish, including a monster 58 inch Tuna and a monster Mahi over 5 ft. My next fishing trip back to Costa Rica I will book with these guys for sure.
