Come as Clients, Leave as Friends!

Come experience Costa Rica Fishing and Fun  in the Papagayo Gulf. The Papagayo Gulf has some of the best sport fishing, surfing and snorkeling in Costa Rica. North Pacific Tours is located in one of the oldest fishing villages of Costa Rica, Playas del Coco, also known as “Coco Beach”.

The waters are home to some of the most sought after trophy fish every fisherman wishes to land – Marlin, Sail, Mahi Mahi aka Dorado, Rooster, Wahoo, Grouper, Snappers, Jacks and Tuna which you can read more on our Species of Fish page and see when they are running in the Papagayo Gulf.


Trips the Entire Family Can Enjoy

Our fishing charters on the Don Manuel include all tackle/ gear needed for your time out with us along with a cooler of drinks and fruit. Full days also include lunch and snacks. We recommend you bring sunscreen, comfortable light-weight clothes, sunglasses, camera, a hat and you’re good to go.

If you and your family or group would like to do a snorkeling tour and explore the coastline of Costa Rica, we offer a 4 hour tour which includes snorkel gear, bottled water, pineapple and your English speaking snorkel guide.

If you are traveling alone or with others who do not like to fish/surf/snorkel or perhaps looking for an economic alternative, a Shared Charter might be what you are looking for. Take a moment to view our calendar of other shares and if you’d like, we can add  your trip to the calendar.

North Pacific Tours takes a maximum of 4 to 5 anglers, 8 snorkelers and 5 surfers.  There are times we are unable to put you on the boat with others, but Lisa will do her best to get you out on the water.

We can never guarantee the fishing but we can guarantee our crew will work hard to get you on the fish.

Whether you are a pro-angler, first-time fisherman, or taking your family out for a snorkeling tour,

you will not be disappointed. Anytime out on the water with us is a good time!
