Fish Tale II Comes Back Bigger & Better in Guanacaste

GUANACASTE, Costa Rica – Costa Rica-based fishing charter, Fish Tale II, is moving to Guanacaste, specifically to Playa Flamingo.

The US veteran-owned charter has made the move to help meet the demand from the influx of tourists coming to experience the fun of Guanacaste, which boasts many outdoor hobbies as well as a thriving nightlife. As well as being able to offer shorter wait times, docked at Playa Flamingo, the charter has recently fitted its vessel with new amenities and technology.

Relocation to Playa Flamingo

Fish Tale II previously was based in Quepos in the Puntarenas province of Costa Rica. Quepos is nationally recognized as one of the fishing capitals of the world, hosting world championships for competitive fishing for the last 7 years, with Fish Tale being one of the many competitors. As tourism shifts from Quepos to Northern Guanacaste, Fish Tale II is excited to take advantage of many beneficial factors of the move. These factors include shorter sailing time for offshore fishing and better nightlife for tourists.

After their move to Guanacaste, Fish Tale II invested in new gear, including fish finders, navionics, rocket launchers, and tuna tubes for fishermen hoping to get the most out of their trips fishing both in and offshore. They’ve also stocked the boat with new outriggers, teasers, lures, and down riggers. The boat has also been outfitted with new teak wood fighting and captain’s chairs, new interior, and upholstery for those prioritizing comfort as well as operability. 

Services and Accommodations

Fish Tale II mainly charters the popular Cabo Sportfisher and offers multi-day fishing/accommodations packages, including local hotel lodging with accommodations for larger groups. It can also arrange a full Costa Rican adventure travel and activity schedule, food, transportation, and excursions. These arranged activities are including but are not limited to rainforest canopy tours, skydiving, whale watching, whitewater rafting, ATV tours, kayaking, horseback riding, golf, snorkeling, scuba diving, sailing, sunbathing or hot springing. 

Options between in and offshore fishing are both viable. “If you want to fish for 6 hours, you can stay inshore and target Roosterfish, Grouper, Snapper, Wahoo, and Mahi Mahi. Alternatively, if you have a whole day to spend on the water, you can target Marlin, Sailfish, Tuna, Wahoo, Cubera Snapper, and Mahi Mahi,” a representative of Fish Tale II says. Fish Tale II accommodates groups with up-to-date technology and comfortable accommodations on a well-running 35-foot vessel powered by twin 325 HP CAT engines, with a maximum cruising speed of 22 knots, and a trolling speed of 17 knots that can accommodate 6 guests. They also boast qualified staff, with a captain and crew that hold decades of experience. Fish Tale II is also US Veteran Owned with an English-speaking crew, a salon with AC, a full galley/full bathroom, lounge, and queen bed. 

Owner Landon Dooley’s Perspective

“The guy that makes pots by hand may not be the richest man, but his heart is the art that when fired makes him succeed,” Landon Dooley, owner and operator of Fish Tale II says. “A poet and an architect have the same effects on people. One may live more lavishly, but who is the more successful person? The one with more money? I don’t necessarily think so.”

Landon Dooley, a US Veteran who served in the Iraq War, sees success on less black-and-white terms than other entrepreneurs might. Landon is focused on having a passion for what he does, and working through the struggle. “I have 6 different businesses that are currently successfully running. I have failed many times, but I look at them as contributing to overall success. They taught me things that I couldn’t have learned in any other way,” Landon says.

Fish Tale II is a Great Choice for Enthusiasts and Tourists

With the know-how of the crew, the resources and technology at their disposal, and their drive,  the vibrant waters of Playa Flamingo will help services shine with shorter sailing times out to the water, a staff determined to provide you the best trip, and a beautiful natural environment to explore.

With a large sportfishing vessel, a full crew, full amenities, and plans with all-inclusive service, Fish Tale II hopes for its clients and customers to create memories to last a lifetime when booking and trekking on a charter. With a 35-foot vessel and a full, English-speaking staff, Fish Tale II provides tourists with their resources, experience, and connections to help ensure an amazing trip they never forget.
