For our first trip we went 12 miles off shore and caught 26 fish... 17 large Dorados and 9 black tuna. Incredible fun. Sergio and Julio were there to... More

Contacted Sergio and arranged a four hour fishing charter for the following day. Met at the gas station, where he seemed disappointed that we weren't buying beer for the day. Asked for payment there so he could buy supplies in the gas station...proceeded to the docks only to discover that his taxi boat driver was nowhere to be found. Had... More

I reached out to Sergio to schedule a boat ride out to Playa Costa Blanca for a larger group. He mentioned that it's possible but it may be a little tight. We met the day prior to discuss and he said that he'll also try to catch some fish on the way there and back (which was a bonus) but... More

My goal was to catch a Roosterfish and Capt. Sergio & mate did not disappoint! We had a great time. They went above and beyond to make sure we catch fish. Great time, Great service, Great knowledge. Highly recommended! Looking to go back again and try some spearfishing with Extreme Nicaraguan Adventures.

We had a group of 4 and Sergio, the owner and guide was very communicative and helpful. He coordinated food for the trip and made sure we were all packed before we met up. Getting to his boat couldn't be easier - he picks you up! On the tour itself, he was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. If there was a... More

Sergio and Julio made my trip! My wife and I booked with Sergio after getting "skunked" by another charter (SJ Surf and Sport). Sergio and Julio are both avid Spearfishermen that gives them an advantage over the other guys. They know every rock and where certain species move according to the weather because they have dove their spots for years.... More

Had an excellent time. I had never fished before and I would definitely go again!! We caught the live bait before we started then went offshore and caught rooster fish, red snapper, needle fish, dorado, and some tuna fish!! Amazing. Sergio was very helpful and explained lots of different things. We even got the fish cooked for us at a... More

In his defense we did email Sergio late the night before because our original boat was already booked. But while we boarded to boat bait wasn't already caught and there was a hard time catching bait but we did eventually. We trolled out to a honey hole that Sergio is very knowledgable about and it did produce big roosters but... More

Went out with Sergio and his first mate Julio, both awesome guys. Met them at the local gas station to pick up supplies (beers and drinks) and headed out to the boat. Did some fishing on the way to their spot and my wife and I both caught huge rooster fish! Then we tried our hand at spearfishing, neither of... More

Sergio and Julio were the best!! From start to finish he provided A+ treatment from pickup at my hotel to knowledge about the island and customs and fishing techniques and even took us to his personal fishing grounds where we caught fish trolling and spearing. Also after our wonderful day out on the waters Sergio invited us back to his... More
