We’ve assembled a list of frequently asked questions to help you prepare for your trip. Please don’t hesitate to contact us to have your questions answered personally by a charter concierge.
When booking 30 days in advance a 50% deposit is due to confirm your reservation. We accept payment by check, wire transfer, and credit card. Please note that all credit card payments are subject to a 5% convenience fee. If your booking is made less than 30 days then full payment is due at the time of the reservation. In some cases cash may be accepted, please inquire.
If your boat has a mechanical issue, which does sometimes happen, we will do our best to find a comparable boat or reschedule you on the next open day. In some cases there may be a price difference in the replacement boat. If the client accepts the new boat they will be responsible for the rate difference. If there is a decrease in price we will refund the difference to the client. If a comparable boat is not available we will refund your money completely if no solutions are found.
On all boat charters the rate includes snacks, lunch, and beverages (water, soda, and beer). Crew gratuities and a fishing license are not included. You can purchase your fishing license on the dock the morning of your charter. A 7 day fishing license costs $15 payable in cash only. You can give the crew tip to the Captain.
Please be at the charter dock by 6:45 am to meet your crew and get your license. The boat will leave at 7:00 am and will return by 4 – 4:30 pm.
• Tourists must purchase travel insurance with a minimum coverage of $2,000 for the expense of extended lodging in the event of being quarantined, and coverage of medical expenses in cases of COVID-19 in Costa Rica for at least $50,000 USD.

The second local option is from Sagicor. A suggestion for an International travel insurance company is Travel Insured International.
