Awesome fishing trips

Go Fish Costa Rica Steve & Liisa did a wonderful job making all of our fishing arrangements. Great fishing trips with an awesome Capt Edwin and mate out of Flamingo Bay. We were targeting rooster fish and Edwin delivered in a big way. Highly recommend contacting Steve from Go Fish Costa Rica for your fishing trips arrangements.

We appreciate you trusting us with all your fishing plans while here. You sure kept us busy and that one Rooster you caught will for sure be going on our web page. Thanks again. Steve

marked quite a few things off our bucket list and we didn't have the pen. Thanks Steve and Liisa

I'm not sure if I can fit everything I want say in this tiny box, but I'll say some of the more important things. First I would love to thank Steve and Liisa Quinn for arranging this vacation for us. We could not have done this without you guys, because of these two we had someone waiting to pick us up from the airport when we arrived. We scheduled a couple of excursions but didn't want to schedule too many because we didn't want to seem rushed. However when we decided to go zip lining and take another ATV tour we just let Steve and Lisa know and they did all the work and let us know what time the car would be there to pick us up. We did the fishing trip the 2nd day with Carlos and his brother and nephew.( I don't want to spell their names wrong so I'm not even gonna attempt it lol) 3rd day we went on the ATV tour with Louise who was great. He took us to many beaches. 4th day was a full day but was really not that tiring, we went zip lining and then Louise took us on another ATV tour to go see a small secluded waterfall which I highly recommend everyone do if your gonna do the ATV tour. It's more off road so a lot more fun. Unfortunately the 5th day we had to wake up from our dream and come home to reality. GO FISH is the way to go. We'll definitely do it again only next time we will stay longer.

We are so glad you enjoyed your trip to Costa Rica and you definitely got a few things in during your short stay. We look forward to a return visit so you can see some more of this great country.

Costa Rica Vacation 2017

We had an awesome time! This was our first trip to CR and really enjoyed the culture, weather, and overall experience. Steve and Liisa were amazing hosts and there hands on approach to hospitality is unfortunately a thing of the past or will cost you a fortune...not with these guys! Hope everyone enjoys Go Fish CR as much as we did. Here a few pics from our trip!

Excellent Organization

I made arrangements with Go Fish Costa Rica to pick me and my son up at the JW Marriott and drive us 10 miles or so to Tamarindo. The taxi showed up right on time and took us to the beach where we met Steve who introduced us to the mate, Carlos of the Runaway who took us by tender to the boat and introduced us to his cousin Haber, the other mate, and his brother, Captain Haber. The boat fished very hard and tried multiple approaches but the big fish (marlin, sails, etc.) did not cooperate. Did catch several fish for dinner and several fun fish. Taxi met us at the beach for return to hotel. Crew was knowledgeable and friendly. Boat was well equipped. Enjoyed the day and would not hesitate to fish with these guys again.

Lowell S,
To bad the big guy's eluded you that day but at least you were able to catch some fish for dinner. Appreciate you taking the time to post this review and glad you and your son were able to have some good memories of your day on the water. I will be sure to pass on your comments to the Captain & Crew and thanks for letting us be part of you vacation.

BEST fishing adventure in Costa Rica!

Im a regular visitor to CR and fishing charters are the norm for me. Having been on some "dud" fishing trips with other charters, i stumbled into a fellow Canadian and his wife (Steve and Lisa)...they "hooked" me up with an incredible guide and we had THE best day EVER!...They were extremely helpful in leading us to other adventures as well, but i just HAD to see if the first fishing trip was a fluke - off we went for another charter (the last day of our trip)...absolutely NOT a fluke - we had an equally amazing day of fishing and fun. Thanks for the memories!! See ya in a few months!

Appreciate your repeat business and we are glad that the fish seem to cooperate when you come down. Thanks for the little gift you left us and Yes see ya soon. Steve & Liisa

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.

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.
