About This Boat

Welcome to Costa Rica's Premier Sportfishing Charter

Costa Rica is home to some of the best sport fishing in the world. The Central Pacific zone of Costa Rica is renowned for their Sailfish and Marlin fishery, which include the Pacific Sailfish, Black Marlin, Pacific Blue Marlin and Striped Marlin.

In addition Costa Rica offers an abundance of Dorado, Wahoo and Yellowfin Tuna up to 250 pounds.

We offer the most renowned sport fishing charter boat in the Central Pacific zone of Costa Rica: the Sailfish 35' Bertram.

Our sport fishing charter boat is located in the Los Suenos Marina, which is part of the beautiful Los Suenos Resort that includes the Marriott hotel. The Resort is located in the Central Pacific town of Herradura bay (near Jaco beach) which is 1 ½ hours from the Juan Santamaria San Jose Airport.

We also live in Herradura and are able to ensure a great experience from greeting you dockside on your arrival, to your bitter-sweet departure at the end of a successful day of sport fishing on the Central Pacific of Costa Rica.

It is our goal and commitment to ensure that both the experienced anglers and first time fisherman have an experience to remember for a lifetime.

As any angler knows, all of the boats, equipment and fishing the most fertile waters will not get the job done without knowledgeable crew.

Captain Bill is well versed in conventional fishing techniques of trolling, bait and switch and the rapidly growing sport of fly fishing.

Captain Bill Kieldsen grew up in northern Indiana where he enjoyed fishing with a fly rod.

After graduating from Purdue University, where he played basketball and was a member of PHI DELTA THETA fraternity, he joined IBM for two years, acquiring the knowledge to run his charter business in a very professional manner.

Bill's background in biology and his use of scientific methods, combined with his lifetime of experience fishing in tournaments and fishing recreationally all over the world enable him to produce fish when others cannot.

Having once made the transition from fresh to saltwater fishing himself, Bill is adept at teaching the new techniques necessary for a saltwater novice.

With 35 years of world experience, Bill looks forward to showing you where the big fish are.
