Costa Rica Sportfishing – Golfito and Puerto Jimenez
Enjoy the sportfishing adventure of a lifetime with one of the world's most distinguished captains! Book a Costa Rica fishing vacation with Captain Bobby McGuinness through Cazador Marlin Adventures and FishCostaRica.
Captain Bobby McGuinness was twice chosen the world's top captain by the prestigious International Game Fish Association (IGFA). He collected the awards in 2006 and 2010.
He was also named one of the world's 50 top saltwater sportfishing captains by the influential Saltwater Sportsman magazine.
Cazador Marlin Adventures and FishCostaRica invite you and your friends to fish with Captain Bobby McGuinness on his 37-foot Cazador. The South Pacific region offers what many consider to be the best offshore/inshore sportfishing combination in the entire country. The offshore enthusiast can enjoy Marlin fishing in Costa Rica in spots that only Bobby knows about, and also go after Sailfish, Yellowfin Tuna, Wahoo and Dorado.
CAPTAIN BOBBY McGUINNESS GUARANTEES YOU A MARLIN!
If you book a two- or three-day overnighter between July 1 and November 15, Bobby McGuinness will guarantee you at least one solid Marlin hook-up. After that it's up to you to bring the fish successfully to the boat. This is a challenge that few captains would dare to offer, and too good a chance for anglers serious about catching a Marlin to pass up. Don't wait to call for more information.
For the inshore angler who craves lots of constant action, there are 12 Snapper species alone, including Red, Cubera, Rock and Dog-Tooth, plus huge Roosterfish, Grouper, Shark and Amberjack.
