This 38ft Topaz Express powered by twin Detroit turbo diesels is the best-known sportfishing charter boat out of Tamarindo. This superbly set-up boat is fully equipped with Penn International, Shimano and Accurate tackle, Furuno color depth sounder and Magellan GPS. Comfortably seating six/seven anglers in the shade, it features a large cockpit and cabin with a V-berth and a private head with shower. Captain Randy Wilson (with mates Eitel and Willy) has extensive fishing experience on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica since moving here in 1974. Randy is passionate about conservation; he pioneered catch-and-release in Costa Rica, and has developed techniques with lure/bait rigs to ensure billfish are not harmed. Lures or baits are rod-tipped so as to hook the fish in the mouth area, resulting in spectacular jumps from the uninjured fish, enabling hook retrieval and thus good survival prospects.
