    What to Expect
    You will have the most enjoyable and comfortable fishing tour. This full-day adventure begins with pickup at selected hotels. You will then head to the bay and board your charter. The captain, Angel Garcia, has been fishing the Costa Rican waters his entire life and has become one of the most well respected captains in the waters off Guanacaste. He is a third generation Captain on local waters and will be with you at all times sharing his valuable knowledge. 

    Other crew members will also accompany you on this tour including Mario who is one the the hardest working mates anywhere. From the moment you step aboard, he will ensure you have the best fishing experience ever. Your host, Rick was in the hospitality industry for many years and his commitment to customer service and guest satisfaction is second to none. 

    Once you catch a fish, your catch will be meticulously cared for, as it will cleaned, bagged it and iced down within minutes of you landing it. Moreover, the safety standards followed throughout the tour are top-notch. All crew is CPR and first-aid certified and the boats are inspected by the Coast Guard to make sure they meet all safety requirements

    Enjoy a full-day adventure on these waters which attract diverse species of large billfish, anglers in search of marlins. You may also catch local and migrating species such as the rooster fish, yellow-fin tuna, mahi-mahi, wahoo, amberjack, giant pacific dog snapper, among others. With your professional crew, you will learn the best sport fishing techniques and use the best quality equipment. 

    Your tour is all-inclusive so you will be able to enjoy snacks, unlimited beverages, a delicious lunch and use all equipment. The boat is spacious and comfortable with indoor/private restrooms and great areas to relax and enjoy. 

    Our eco-friendly approach and our commitment to protect the environment are also a priority. It is the protection of our waters that will ensure future generations can enjoy the same bounty we do. We recommend catch and release. Pricing is per boat with up to 6 passengers. Additional guests are $50 each, maximum 8.

    My husband and I just completed a full day trip on the Dream On while celebrating our Honeymoon. He did lots of research prior to our trip and with the number of raving reviews here we figured we couldn’t go wrong. The fishing was slow, but you can’t knock them for that. Hooked

    My apologies for your charter not being what you expected. Mario was unable to work yesterday and it seems the last minute replacement isn't up to snuff. I'm glad you had some action fishing. Thank you for taking the time to review us and if you're ever this way again I'd love to make it up to you.

    Did a full day fishing trip with the expert crew of the Dream On. The captain was able to spot a large yellowfin tuna feeding inside a pod of dolphins. The mate quickly changed the bait, and the captain circled back around and was able to hook me up with a 100+ pound yellowfin

    We booked an all day charter for off shore fishing. The boat picked us up at Riu palace and our 8 hour day started. We saw over 100 dolphins on our way to the fishing grounds. Wasn’t long before we hooked and landed a sailfish. Soon after we had a tuna followed by a 90 minute

    Dream On sport fishing was highly recommend to us and they did not disappoint. We booked a five hour inshore trip and took our children ( 11,8 and 5). Our captain was a Angel and he was amazing. He took us to where all the hot spots were and we caught 5 Mahi Mahi’s and 4 Tuna.
