Really Big Fish

Imagine salt spray in the air and ocean as far as you can see.
All while you are reeling the big one in.
Rent the boat, meet the crew, and get fishing

About Dream Girl Sportfishing

Owners: Costa Rican Dreams, LLC. (Ruste & Sara Jane Via)

Victor Kiam made this phrase famous, "I loved it so much, I bought the company," but it adequately describes how Sara and I become owners of a charter boat in Costa Rica. The bill fishing here is nothing like what I had ever experienced. After years of trolling off the coast of Florida at 2k-2.5k per day and reeling in little other than some King Mackerel, catching in upwards of 10 sailfish per day in Costa Rica was simply amazing.

When the charter corporation, with the best crew I have EVER fished with, came up for sale, Sara and I decided to buy it.

The best time to bill fish (Sailfish, Blue Marlin, etc) is December-April but the bottom fishing (edible fish) is great year-around. We are moored at the beautiful Los Suenos Resort and Marina in Playa Herradura, Costa Rica. There is a beautiful Marriott Hotel within this resort that has everything one would need for an awesome stay. However, if more discrete accommodations are needed for those who are more famous or infamous than the rest of us, we have access to some of the most luxurious home and condos in Costa Rica.

Our boat is a custom built 38ft, 900hp charter vessel called the "Dream Girl" and is outfitted for some of the best bill fishing in the world. Contact us on our Facebook page to book a charter. You may also follow us on Instagram @dreamgirlsportfishingcostarica. We "book-up" faster than the hotel so contact us about possible dates before booking your sleeping accommodations.
