About Your Trip

These FAD (Fish Aggregating Device) trips are specifically designed for the hardcore angler who thinks that they've done it all. Off of Costa Rica, there's an abundance of dormant underwater volcanoes scattered between 70–150 miles offshore. Because of the change in water depth and the abundance of bait in these areas, they've proven to be perfect places to deploy FADs. FADs are any underwater structure you deploy yourself—essentially allowing Captain Tyler to create his own personal reefs, mark them on his GPS, and then fish his own exclusive, offshore honey holes.

First Time Booking with Us?

We vet our guides to make sure they are the best of the best. We want guides who not only catch fish, but show you a great time on the water, keep you safe, and give you a memorable experience with your group.

Once you've paid your deposit at checkout, we'll send you a QR code (like a mobile boarding pass). Just show your guide your QR code on the day of the trip, they'll scan it, the remaining balance will transfer automatically, and you'll be all set to go fishing. Just make sure you bring a cash tip for the guide!

In the case of inclement weather, our guides will make the call and we'll work with you to reschedule your trip or issue a full refund. Your safety is our top concern.

Once you book the trip, we will connect you directly with the guide to go over any additional details. In the meantime, our location specialists are always available to answer your questions via email, text, chat, or call!
