Unbelievable!

This is long winded but needs to be said.

Let me start by saying that 2 years ago my wife and I have been thinking about visiting Costa Rica along with another couple of longtime friends. We booked our own flights, found and made reservations at a well respected hotel and then went in search for a company that would handle our bucket list fishing charter.

We were directed to Go Fish Costa Rica from friends that previously used them and came highly recommended. On January 22/2020 we contacted them and had everything in place and we were ready for our trip of a lifetime. Go fish required a deposit to hold the reservation as did the hotel and airline had our tickets paid for all ready for our May, 10th arrival.

On March, 19th Costa Rica closed their borders because of the covid 19 pandemic and how did we know this? It was not the airline that notified us nor was it the hotel (all major companies) it was the little husband and wife fishing company that told us about this situation. They told us that because of the situation before us we could do a couple things, either postpone, or they would offer us a full refund which was $500.00 and could reschedule when things returned to normal.

We then contacted the hotel we booked with and asked them to refund our deposit because we were not sure when we could in fact return but to our amazement they said they could not but would offer a credit that could be used within 1 yr.

We also tried to get our money refunded from the airlines and again they wouldn't but offered us up a credit that also could be used within 1 yr. (We have since got this refund) but only after many frustrating phone calls and emails.

Now here we go, we contacted Go Fish and explained the situation and they (without hesitation) offered to send us our deposit back. But here is where it gets better, this small husband and wife operation did receive my deposit, I sent them the $500.00 but because of service fees and such they only received $468.00 I know this because I received notice of it. They offered and in fact sent me my $500.00 back into our account, we received $503.00 back into our account (more than our deposit) within 4 hrs from contacting them which means in order for me to get this amount back they must have had to send us back our $500.00 plus they paid all fees, Who does this? Not big airlines or high end hotels but a little small business owner in Costa Rica does.

We look forward to carrying on with our trip of a lifetime however we will not be using this particular airline (poor customer service) nor will we use this hotel that still has our deposit but we will definitely be using Go Fish Costa Rica and supporting small businesses whenever we can because they are the one's that really care.

Our experience with them was unbelievable and we haven't even used them yet but our gut feeling is to stay with them and whether we catch fish or not they will have our business for life.

Thanks for restoring our faith in people.

Tom Gallow....We really appreciate you taking the time to post this review and am sorry that others out there didn't treat you well on the refunds.My wife & I have always lived by the rule "Treat People The Way You Wish To Be Treated" and although this Covid -19 came as a big surprise to everyone we just automatically did what we thought was right for all our customers even though it did cost us money out of our own pockets to do so we know that by treating our clients fairly we will not only sleep well at night we will also have people looking us up when the time is right.I sure hope that you and the rest of your party are doing well, staying safe and are still planning on visiting us when this stuff passes because we are very much looking forward to getting to meet you all.Your Friends in Costa Rica.Steve & Liisa

Thank you again Steve &Liisa

We met Steve and Liisa in our first trip to Tamarindo and we haven't looked back. We travel to Tamarindo every year and look Steve and Liisa up to see what they are planning for us. They are very accommodating and have so much available for you. We highly recommend using Go Fish Costa Rica during your trip. They will set you up with any tour you would like and have lots of excursions you may like and not even know about. They are extremely knowledgeable and a call away if you have any questions always a quick response. Steve and Liisa arrive to make sure everything is in place and follow up after. Thinking of Tamarindo CR look them up you will not be disappointed. They run a great business and treat their clients and customers well. Wonderful hosts wonderful people, wonderful fishing, wonderful place, wonderful country.
Book your excursions with Steve & Liisa -Go Fish Costa Rica.
Pura Vida !

SCSemple.....We remember the first time you came here, we hit it off right away and as a result we have made friends for life. Thanks for posting the review as I know you are busy and when things settle we hope to see you back here in Costa Rica.Give our best to the gang.Steve & Liisa

THANK YOU

I wanted to write a little something about Steve and Liisa.
I have been in Costa Rica since February and I am one of the lucky ones who have gotten to know these two extraordinary people.
Not only do they give everyone who steps on to their boats an unforgettable experience, but they show true dedication to their community. They have been extremely uplifting throughout this entire shutdown, doing what they can to make people feel connected and loved. And with my family so far away, they welcomed me into theirs, from a distance of course, and have made my life a whole lot fuller.
A huge thank you for all you have done and continue to do. Get ready for a big hug when this social bubble bursts.

Mandy Alexis

Mandy.....It has been a pleasure to have gotten to know you, we never in a million years thought we would be in this position, none of us did, but we as a community have to stick together and it is our hope that we can all get back to some sort of normal soon and those wanting to get back to their homes & families can.Thanks for the kind words and look forward to that hug.Steve & Liisa

Wonderful experience

My husband and I took a vacation to Tamarindo, Costa Rica. We wanted to take a few tours while there, so we researched many tour operators and after being satisfied with what we heard from Liisa and Steve Quinn we decided to go with GO Fish Costa Rica. The REVIEWS were excellent on GO FISH which made a big difference also in our choice of business.
On our next return to beautiful Tamarindo, we will definitely use GO FISH , with Liisa and Steve as they are very accommodating and have so many other tours available.
They set us up with many activities deep sea fishing, zip lining and all terrain vehicles trips and accommodations.
Liisa and Steve are extremely knowledgeable and a call away if you have any questions at anytime, their response is very quick.
It took us some time to post our review as we are winter travellers and by the time we returned home to Canada 🇨🇦 like many others we now have extra time on our hands because of the Pandemic.

Thinking of a trip to Tamarindo, CR , and doing tours there is no better business to contact than
GO FISH COSTA RICA.

Marilyn P......Thanks so much for the review and we hope to see you back after this pandemic. Stay Safe!Steve & Liisa

Memorable vacation

My wife and I were planning a two week vacation to Tamarindo, Costa Rica. Being a seasoned traveller I researched all companies for excursions during our visit. I found Go Fish Costa Rica had great reviews and had them book all our excursions. I can honestly say they exceeded our expectations. Steve and Liisa were exceptional in responded in a very timely manner, booking excursions that we requested and constantly following up. Everything they said came to fruition. Our day of deep sea fishing was something we will never forget. Steve and Liisa arrived to make sure everything was to our satisfaction and after our day they followed up. Same thing happened with our all terrain vehicle tour and our road trip to the rain forest and volcano. We would highly recommend Steve and Liisa to anyone planning a trip to Tamarindo, Costa Rica

Jack M......We are so glad you all had a great time during your recent visit and cannot wait to host you both again when this Covid thing is over.Thanks so much for the recommendation and please take care of yourselves during these unprecedented times we are in.Steve & Liisa

Always Great!!

Although it seems like a lifetime ago, we fished with Go Fish in February 2020 for the 2nd time and just the same as the first we had an amazing time! There were 6 of us fishing and we can not say enough about the First Mate, I've never seen anyone work so hard to make sure that we caught fish! The added bonus of sea turtles and dolphins everywhere. The hospitality is always above and beyond! I can't thank Steve and Liisa enough for all of the help they provide to me, in helping to organize my trips to Costa Rica.

We will be back and we will come fishing again!

lots of love from Ontario

Sarah E......We love repeat clients and am so glad you had a great time out there Again. We appreciate your kind words and we really hope that you all are safe and sound during these trying times the world is now facing. We also hope that once this is all over we will get the opportunity to host you all again.Please give our best to the others and be safe.Steve & Liisa

Amazing fishing, Amazing organising!

Visited Tamarindo in February for a 2 week holiday with the family and my husband who is a very keen fisherman booked trips with Go Fish!
Even before we left the UK, the correspondence with Steve & Lisa regarding the fishing/boats was fantastic. They really listened to my husbands fishing requirements (types of fish and fishing he wanted to do) and made sure these were fulfilled. Even when the weather wasn't on his side, they contacted Olly and moved/shuffled his trips around to accommodate the weather and ensure he still got out on the water. Over the three trips Olly caught Rooster fish, numerous jacks and tuna Mackeral, and the jigging for Amberjack was insane!!

His offshore trip had to be abandoned due to bad weather but this was after the skipper attempted to get out - great skipper - and full refund was given for this.

If your going to Tamarindo and want to fish these are your people!

We will be back (when we are allowed!!) And will use Go Fish again!

Sam & Olly

Sam & Olly.....What an absolute pleasure it was to have met you all and so glad you had a great time fishing while here. Be sure to give everyone our best and keep in touch and be safe.Steve & Liisa

Best day ever!!

We had such an amazing day fishing for sailfish and marlin. Our guide and captain were top notch! I also had excellent communication from Liisa from the moment I emailed asking about trip information to her sending me pictures post fishing trip. We will definitely be back to Costa Rica and no trip would be complete without going fishing with them again!

Sheila M,,,,,Liisa and I are so glad you got to spend a great day on the water with AJ. All the best to you all and please when all this mayhem subsides be sure to come back and see us.Be safe.Liisa & Steve

Fishing trip!

Gary T,,,,,,We are so glad that you can chalk this up as one of your favorite parts of your trip. Please give our best to the ladies and be safe during these trying times.Steve & liisa

Bill fishing in Tamarindo....

Awesome trip, the accommodations were great, the boats and crews 1st rate.

Lunch on the boat was awesome all three days.

The town was nice and felt safe at all times. The monkeys were a bonus....

The fishing was fishing and as always it could have been better, LOL.

Will return for another try.......

Tom & Gang......Thanks for taking the time out to post this review and although the fishing was not the best for your 3 day trip we appreciate the fact that you understand "Fishing is Fishing". Give our best to the others and thanks for supporting the good folks in the D/U organization.Steve & Liisa
