Kevin is a great Captain and takes the time to answer any questions you have. I wanted to catch Marlin and he got me in the position for a successful trip. Bring plenty of sunscreen because it took 2.5 hours to get the 400-500 lb. Black Marlin I caught to the boat. Great trip, well worth it!! Kevin

My dad and I came to Costa Rica specifically to fish with captain Kevin. I fished with Kevin 6 years ago and he was very knowledgeable about the fishing grounds and the techniques of catching inshore and offshore fish. We did two offshore days and one "fish for food" inshore day and we had success on all trips with 100... More

After doing a few a few fishing trips in other countries we were really excited to try Costa Rica hoping for a dinner catch. Sadly we trolled for bait for what seemed an eternity and never snagged anything. We moved again and caught some really small fish and then tried for bigger fish, still nothing. In the end we wasted... More

We booked a half day trip with Captain Kevin Malone out of Uvita on a clear beautiful sunny day! Captain Malone was busy getting the boat ready for us upon our arrival, he provided water, beer, soda and some homemade macaroni salad (delicious) and hard boiled eggs! After about a 90 minute run or so we were ready to fish,... More

Kevin made our deep sea fishing charter one to remember. He is very quick to respond to questions before the trip and is an excellent fishing guide. We had a great day on the water with Kevin. Highly recommend booking a fishing trip with Kevin!

This was a very memorable day out, the fishing was first rate and we also saw a lot of wildlife - turtles, dolphins. Capt Kevin was everything we wanted from a skipper, a very competent fisherman and professional captain who let us get on with fishing and was on hand if we needed help. He was also very patient with... More

Captain Kevin was a great host and very professional for my first offshore fishing experience including my 75 year old Dad and 13 year old son. Caught our first sailfish and ready to return for more in the future! Highly recommended.

What a day! Under the expert guide of our Captain, Kevin, we had an exciting day on the water! We caught a huge black marlin and 2 sailfish! Kevin worked hard to make sure we were safe and able to get our fish to the boat for a photo. He was considerate and very skilled at his profession. We also... More
