Fishing Charter Fish Tale II Explodes Onto Guanacaste Tourist Scene

GUANACASTE, Costa Rica – A US veteran-owned inshore and offshore fishing charter service in Costa Rica, Fish Tale 2, has moved its operations to Playa Flamingo in hopes of meeting the rising tourist demand. As well as relocating from Quepos, the company has also outfitted vessels for charter with new amenities and fishing technology.

From Puntarenas to Guanacaste

Fish Tales 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 Tales being one of the many competitors. As tourism shifts from Quepos to Northern Guanacaste, Fish Tales 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 Tales 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 Amenities

Fish Tales 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 Tales II says.

Fish Tales 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 Tales II is also US Veteran Owned with an English-speaking crew, a salon with AC, a full galley/full bathroom, lounge, and queen bed.

Landon Dooley’s Story

Landon Dooley, a US veteran having served in the Iraq War, owns and operates Fish Tales II. While Landon strives for excellence, he also speaks on trial and error, and the importance of having a passion for what you do.

“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.”

While Landon has his attention spread across 6 different businesses, he isn’t distracted from his larger plans for Fish Tales II “I would like to see my company grow to 3 boats. I plan to build a few homes to be our lodging for all-inclusive tours soon. I would also like to open a bar/grill/bait/tackle shop on the beach in Portrero as well.”
