Yves and Bernadette Harlepp welcome you and guide you and keep you company in your fishing trip.
Our job is our passion, fishing. It has been this way for many years, 37 long years, first as professional fishermen and later in the sportsfighing area. The catch and release spirit little by little took more importance in our souls and our arrival to Costa Rica reinforced this way of life, the pleasure of watching sailfish, marlins, roosterfish and other species go back to the ocean. The on growing pressure of commercial fishing is affecting all oceans, but here at Golfito we work in an unison with our crews with the spirit of conservation of species for future generations. Here in Costa Rica we embrace this spirit and we nourish it, we do not endorse killing for pleasure, everyone from the new mate to the old captain, they all have respect for the fish.
Costa Rica with its conservation efforts, the total absence of army, the tranquil way of life was of our liking, there are no infectious disease and no mosquitos. We took residence in May 2005, but before anything else is the presence of Golfo Dulce, one of the only few tropical fiords, which fascinated us when we went fishing the first few times.
Thousands of bait fish make the gulf boil and make the predatory fish come to the entrance of the gulf to feast, blue, black, striped marlins and huge sailfish. Something else that called our attention right away from our professional fishing life was the absence of bad weather. This is a privilege site that Golfito has. What a pleasure to be able to fish in a calm ocean and to enjoy your passion, immerse in it without thinking about getting seasick.
we work with a french Agency but we are able to rent directly !

Grâce à un grand esprit de camaraderie , les capitaines des bateaux de pêche sportive n´hésitent pas à s'appeler par VHF dés qu'une concentration de poissons est repérée. Les équipages hors zone n'hésitent pas à remonter toutes les lignes et à faire route sur le point donné garantissant ainsi la journée de pêche.
Un grand "plus "non négligeable, tous les bateaux disposent en quantité suffisante de ballahous ; appât « friandise » incontesté des poissons de haute mer
