Family Trip was perfect!

We did a family Thanksgiving trip to Tamarindo. Liisa was able to find us a big enough boat to accommodate us all. We did a 3/4 day trip and the kids all had a ball. Capt. and mate were very accommodating and worked very hard to make sure the kids all got to sit in the fighting chair and reel in a fish. The ones that were keepers were expertly cleaned and made for a nice family meal upon return.

Thanks for visiting us and most important Thanks So Much for the review. All the best to you & your family over the up and coming Holiday Season.

Great trip! We did a 3/4 day trip and scored the 150 lb blue marlin 15 minutes in! Courteous staff and lots of beer!

What a difference a day makes

After visiting Costa Rica in the past we set our sights on fishing. Having set things up with Steve & Lisa at Go Fish we set out on 2 full day off-shore charters, Day #1 skunked (but thats fishing) and totally made up for it on our 2nd day with 3 sailfish and a big Blue Marlin. The Captain and crew worked hard for us and would use this outfit again.

Thanks for taking the time to post a review. We are sorry that on your first day you got skunked and appreciate the fact you didn't blame us for that and mentioning that it is all a part of fishing (some people will blame us).
Some days are bad some are good but let the records show we do have more good days than bad, and we are very happy things were better for you on the 2nd day as it is always our goal to put people on the fish. Hopefully we will see you again next year,,,, "Tight Lines".

Dreams fulfilled

Being a land locked Midwest USA person from birth, the sporting magazine articles on ocean fishing were a thing of dreams. I decided to make these dreams a reality. In March 2015, I decided to take my sons down during their spring break from college. Steve and Liisa made it extremely easy to arrange all kinds of activities, boat charter, ATV, whitewater rafting, and zipline. All we had to do was ask, it happened. Fishing in March was ok, but I wanted to return some year in Aug/Sept.

So this year, Julie and I arranged to fly in Aug 30, charter fishing Sept 1. We had an awesome day fishing, catching mackerel, small tuna, a couple of sharks, a beautiful sailfish and a bull Mahi Mahi (Julie caught that). On the way in at the end of the day, we had another bull Dorado next to the boat, hook pulled free at the last minute. Carlos, first mate of the boat, asked if we wanted to continue fishing. I said no, I was fished out!

Steve and Liisa are the best, recommending them to all my friends.

Randy N
It was an absolute please to have first met you with your 2 sons (Nice young men) and again now with your wife Julie. You did have a great day on the water and that Dorado Julie caught was one of the biggest of the year. So glad we were able to hook you all up and that the outcome was awesome.
Hope to see you all back again soon.

Fun and fish filled vacation

We had an excellent time on our trip with Go Fish Costa Rica. Liisa and Steve took care of everything, making a point to be accessible and gracious hosts throughout the entire trip. The Outcast Crew were amazing, friendly, and very hospitable. A 60 pound tuna (only one of the weekend!); several Marlin, many sail fish, and a huge dinners worth of grouper; all just in two days on the boat! We'd go back in a heartbeat and would look forward to seeing the Hotel Tamarindo staff again too, best margaritas in town are at their bar!

Molly S
We will let the great staff at the Hotel we recommended know your thoughts, and are so glad the fish cooperated for your fishing days. See you back one day soon.
Steve & Liisa

Our trip was a fishing success with two sailfish and two blue marlins. Not to mention a 60# yellow fin tuna.

We bought the trip at a Ducks Unlimited auction. Liisa and Steve of Go Fish Costa Rica were extremely helpful in all aspects of our trip, including where to get our tuna cyrovaced and where to get a cooler for shipping. SWA didn't even ask what was in the cooler. Hotel Pasatiempo was clean and well appointed. The pool was a joy after a day of fishing. The fishing boat, "Outcast" was great for our two days of fishing. The Captain and First Mate made the fishing fun and easy. Nothing like freshly caught tuna sashimi. A great time was had by all.


Steve and Liisa run a heck of an organized, personalized, and hassle-free operation. The fishing was fantastic - over 2 days: 6 for 18 on sails, 1 for 1 on marlin, plus tuna and mahi-mahi. Great boat. Capt Hiener, and mates Hiener and Carlos worked as hard as any crew we've fished with. Fantastic ATV tour. To sum it up best from our fathers & sons fishing trip: they have our unqualified endorsement, they are there from the minute you arrive and when you leave, they encourage you to ask anything and do not hesitate to ask them about anything or any concerns, ( I suggest you go with their recommendations), - they really mean it when they say they are there for you! A great value with an experience that exceeds expectations. We'll be back!

Pelos B
"Wow" is right. We are so glad you enjoyed your time here and thanks so much for acknowledging all we do for our clients. It was really great to see a father & son trip go as it did and by the sounds of it some lasting memories were made. I know we will see you guy's back again one day and when you do be sure to look us up as we would love put another trip together for you all.

Great fishing trip

We spent 4 nights in Tamarindo with Go Fish. Steve and Liisa were very helpful from the start and spent considerable time making sure we had everything we needed once we arrived. The fishing boat and crew that they paired us with were excellent, and we also spent a great day on an ATV tour which they helped arrange. Overall a great experience and great hosts!

We really appreciate you taking the time to post this review and glad you had fun while visiting us here in Costa Rica.
Steve & Liisa
