Loretta 32′ Black Fin Sport Fisher

Loretta, the vessel formerly known as Dream On is a 32′ Black Fin Sport Fisher.  Legendary in the sport fishing world. It is noted for being one of the most sea worthy boats in its class, smoothing those short choppy conditions and making the chase to the fishing ground more enjoyable. The low and purposely aggressive profile and deep-V hull is designed to slice through the blue water with plenty of power to get you to the fish fast. She’s built for fishing in a utilitarian sense. This classic fishing beast accommodates up to seven guests (6 or fewer is better). Listed prices are for up to 4 guests. Additional guests are $50 per person.

About Fishing in Papagayo Gulf
Full days are 8 hours and can be fished inshore and/or offshore. A must in order to go after the marlin and sailfish.
On the 4 hour half day trip we stay inshore and look for any kind of action. We fish submerged rock formations for grouper, snapper, amberjack. There is also lots of surface action with jacks, mackerels, dorado, maybe wahoo and tuna: keeping everyone busy and catching fish for dinner.
You can keep your fish! **There is a strict catch and relase policy on billfish**
