New Guanacaste Fishing Charter Fish Tale II is Coming to Playa Flamingo


GUANACASTE, Costa Rica – Fish Tale II, a US veteran-owned inshore and offshore fishing charter service in Costa Rica, has moved its operations to Guanacaste at Playa Flamingo in an effort to meet the area’s higher demand. As well as moving locations, the company has also resupplied and renovated vessels for charter, outfitting their charter boat with comfortable new seating areas and fishing technology. 

Fish Tale 2 Coming 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: People and Passion Over Profits

Fish Tale 2 is owned and operated by Landon Dooley, a US veteran that served in the Iraq War. While Landon is focused on improving Fish Tale II’s operations – along with his 5 other businesses – he’s happy to have found success in a sector of business that he has a true affinity for. 

In business, Landon’s assets are split well between sectors. His main business is construction, but he says he wants to focus more of his attention on businesses like Fish Tale II. “There’s my decorative Concrete business as well. I also have a roll-off dumpster business, an Ice Skating Rink in Angel Fire, New Mexico on my ranch here, and I have my campground- Enchanted Circle Campground. Eventually, I’d like to get entirely out of construction, and concrete and just focus on the fun stuff like this.”
