Everything about the charter was excellent, the trip, being met on the beach at our hotel, capitan gerald, jessi and Steve. Lunch and snacks were great... More

We absolutely loved our deep sea fishing experience with this crew! They were so kind and friendly and worked very hard to make sure we all had a great time and caught some great fish! With several new fishers on board, we caught 2 Yellow Tuna, 2 Mahi mahi and a few other bait fish. I would suggest Capullo to... More

Had a great time. Booked a half day with Gerald and a full day with Manuel and Cheyenne. Had a great time both days. They are pros and can put you on the fish. We caught many. My highlight was a large rooster fish on the full day trip. My wife had a great time in the shade and even... More

My son in law arranged this trip and it was terrific. We did a half day on the rainbow runner and it was great. The day started out slow but Captain Gerald never gave up and before we headed back in we'd gotten two rooster-fish(son in law). And one Amberjack(me). Captain Gerald filleted the Amberjack and a local restaurant prepared... More

Booked a half day trip on the Boston Whaler with Captain Gerald on Sunday December 27. After leaving the beach, we headed South for about 30 minutes or so and after catching our bait fish, we landed 2 Rooster Fish and an Amberjack. Captain Gerald is a wealth of information. He answered all of our questions and share some great... More

My boyfriend booked a 3/4 day while we were traveling in Costa Rica together this past March. This was my first time fishing, but he's an avid fisherman, and I can tell you now that this fishing trip was one of the best parts of our vacation. Steve, the owner, met us on the beach before we took off and... More

It was a great full day charter (with friends). The fishing was below par. We caught one sailfish, and almost hooked another. The captain felt bad, so he took us to catch grouper, which we could catch anywhere. The best part was having food, drinks, beers and snacks part of the package.

We had a fabulous day of catching sailfish with Manuel and Cheyenne. We brought six sailfish into the boat for photos and released. We hooked another that got off and tried for many more. Lots of fun to watch the fish chase the bait. Great boat and crew. Lots of dolphins, turtles and birds to see on the trip. My... More

Booked Capullo for a half day trip May 8th. Did not catch one fish or get a bite. First time in my life getting skunked! Chartered boats in California, Florida and the Dominican and always caught fish. Being the worlds best fishing area, it was very disappointing. No complaints about the captain and crew, except no fish.

I decided to book this charter through Steve at Capullo due to the Capullo Sportfishing website and emails back and forth with Steve. Through the website is a detailed explanation on how to fill out your license application for us non Spanish speaking persons. Quite detailed and easy to follow. Steve met my wife and I at the beach the... More
