Dive into the heart of the ocean with Tamarindo Fishing

Tamarindo, Costa Rica, fishing is the number one tourist activity for travelers visiting northwestern Costa Rica. The Tamarindo region lies along the beautiful Pacific Ocean, with plentiful deep-water fishing grounds just off the coast of Tamarindo. Sportfishing in Tamarindo means fishing in waters rich in natural marine resources, such as all the billfish species, dorado, and many tuna species.

When not fishing the deep waters where the pelagic species run, you can move to Tamarindo’s shallower waters and cash in on the plentiful bottom-fishing species. Bottom fishing in Tamarindo means you have a high chance of hooking into a colorful roosterfish or a giant cubera snapper.

Sailfish Catch in Tamarindo

Tamarindo Deep Sea Fishing

Deep-sea fishing in Tamarindo means exactly that. Tamarindo deep sea fishing means you will likely be fishing in 1200-2000 fathoms of water. This is where the term pelagic fishing originates in that the fish in these waters are always on the move throughout the deepwater column down to around 500 fathoms in search of prey.

Big blue marlinsailfish, dorado, wahoo, tuna, and other offshore or deep-sea species are readily available while fishing in Tamarindo. To fish, these deep waters mean a run to the continental shelf, which is about a 45-minute run offshore of Tamarindo. Although Tamarindo deep sea fishing and fishing in these deep blue waters sound exciting, anglers do not always need to run 45 minutes offshore to catch large billfish. Giant blue marlin, tuna, and all the so-called “offshore species” can many times be caught just a few miles off the beach. That is one of the many reasons Tamarindo fishing is so great: because of the abundant big game fishing inshore and offshore.

Tamarindo Sport Fishing

The northwest corner of Costa Rica is best known for the top sportfishing in Tamarindo. This part of Costa Rica attracts a special breed of angler. Anglers venture to this part of the world because of stories of 1000-pound and up blue marlin. Stories and tales of 12-hour-long fights with monster fish that would rather die during the fight than be brought to the boat. It is usually the angler looking for that blood-pumping adrenaline rush that they get when they land a trophy billfish that comes for Tamarindo sport fishing. The good news about Tamarindo sport fishing is that you don’t have to be a seasoned or experienced angler to participate.

A Tamarindo charter captain and crew are here to help with tips and techniques to help even the most inexperienced angler. So even though catching a big marlin or giant tuna sounds like something only a pro angler could do, it’s not. Tamarindo sportfishing is the perfect activity for anybody: a few buddies, a couple of honeymooners, or even the entire family. Just remember your Costa Rica fishing Captain will help you with everything you need so you will feel right at home on the fishing boat.
