COSTA RICA

Visit Costa Rica’s fishing paradise, a place full of billfish strikes and calm seas. The main sailfish season runs from January through April, but anglers catch marlin and sailfish here every month of the year. The most-exhilarating style of fishing is to pitch rigged dead ballyhoo to teased-up billfish in the prop wash. We’ll teach you the best techniques to get the bite right behind the boat.  We fish on the famous Maverick Sportfishing ‘Fly’ boats and accommodations are in the luxurious condos on the property at Los Suenos Resort & Marina. Limited to 16 anglers. Cost is $6200 per person and includes all meals, charter boats and tips, accommodations, airport transfers, and golf carts. Airfare is not included.


LADIES ONLY – COSTA RICA

Get ready for a Marlin University for Ladies only! This MU will pair female anglers with the top female professionals for the ultimate learning experience! Whether you’re looking to take your first-ever swing at a billfish or fine-tune your angling technique, these ladies are ready to help. We fish on the famous Maverick Sportfishing ‘Fly’ boats and accommodations are in the luxurious condos on the property at Los Suenos Resort & Marina. For ladies, taught by ladies! Limited to 16 anglers. Cost is $6200 per person and includes all meals, charter boats and tips, accommodations, airport transfers, and golf carts. Airfare is not included.


GUATEMALA

Guatemala’s huge numbers of different billfish make it impossible to pass up. Almost nowhere else in the world offers this many shots at billfish, and we make sure you’re there during the prime season. Guatemala’s prolific Pacific Coast is a perfect place to learn the bait-and-switch technique. We stay at the Casa Vieja Lodge and fish on their fleet of top notch fishing vessels. Limited to 16 anglers. Cost is $6000 per person and includes all meals, charter boats and tips, accommodations, and airport transfers. Airfare is not included.


AUSTRALIA

The section of the Great Barrier Reef from Cairns north to just past Lizard Island holds more 800-plus pound fish than any spot in the world. If you are serious about catching a marlin of significant size—more than 800 pounds—then you can’t beat the action on the GBR, even when the fishing is slow!


Our trip to Australia is epic big-game fishing! We fish for 5 days and sleep on our own mothership, the MV BELUGA. The mothership provides us with comfortable accommodations for 5 days and gives us the flexibility to move up and down the reef to chase the bite and still enjoy great accommodations and food. Limited to 10 anglers. Cost is $10,500 per person and includes all meals, charter boats and tips, mother ship accommodations and airport transfers. Airfare is not included.
