Costa Rica Fishing Charters

37' Hatteras

For amazing fishing trips out of Los Suenos Marina, a mid-sized option like this Hatteras offers a great mix of comfort and modern gear to make your Costa Rica fishing excursion a success. Book a full day and head offshore to target tuna, wahoo, mahi-mahi and marlin of the black, blue and striped variety. Or choose a half day to go after inshore catches such as roosterfish, grouper and snapper.

With over 20 years of professional angling in Costa Rica under his belt, Captain David Dobbins knows the waters of the Central Pacific better than most natives. The seasoned pro, who originally hails from Virginia Beach, is certified by the United States Coast Guard and sure to help you land the catches of your dreams. Over the past two decades, he’s earned a reputation for being one of the first out from the marina in the morning and the last to come in with fresh catches at the end of a fruitful day of fishing.

What can you expect from the boat that lies under the helm of Captain Dobbins? Power for one. New twin Cummins QSB 6.7 motors propel the 37-foot Hatteras, taking you to a comfortable cruising speed of 23 knots. You’d expect the diesel engines to be loud, smelly and given to belch out annoying smoke. But these QSB common-rail diesel motors run quiet and clean with EPA-rated Tier 3 emissions.

Cruise in Cool Comfort
 

Whether you’re sticking close to the coast for inshore fishing or heading out to open ocean, why not enjoy the trip in complete comfort? Relax in an air-conditioned cabin with a full bathroom and a galley with modern conveniences. Enjoy a snack that’s included with your charter, paired with a refreshing beverage. With on-the-spot fish cleaning and filleting at no extra cost, the skilled bilingual crew can even whip up some of the freshest sushi and ceviche you’ve ever tasted.

Fantastic Fishing With Great Gear
 

Having recently undergone a complete overhaul, the Hatteras sports some of the best gear you’ll find out of Los Suenos. Enjoy new Shimano TLD reels and modern electric reels for bottom fishing. They also have LPs for the dredge and a fighting chair for those dramatic battles between fisherman and feisty catch. From spinning rods and fly gear to the latest full range tackle, the boat is outfitted with every tool an angler could desire. Add in sonar, GPS, Furuno Radar and VHF Radio to almost guarantee a day of bountiful hauls.
