“Great Experience Kayaking and touring botanical gardens”
Reviewed 19 February 2012

If you want a great experience kayaking near Puerto Jimenez call Joe. We had an excellent time kayaking in the Mangroves and walking through a botanical garden-preserve with him. He is very knowledgeable about all the local flora and fauna and will go out of his way to know you are enjoying yourself. I would highly recommend his company especially for those who would love the thrill of reeling in a big fish from a kayak or seeking a quiet nature paddle on the Osa peninsula.

“Fantastic guide=Fantastic trip!”
Reviewed 31 January 2012

We were recommended to Joe Lynberg by sport fishing magazine as well as other guides who spoke of his talent as a fisherman and capability as a guide to any skill level angler. My mom caught her first fish from a kayak... A 50 pound rooster among many other fish we caught over 2 days of great fishing including snapper, cero mackerel and small tuna.
He is an Ocean Kayak pro staffer with well maintained and very stable kayaks. Joe will help you execute whatever techniques catch fish that day. We came home with some fresh fish and amazing fish stories of ones we caught, not lost. Save gas, ride a rooster fish!

“Steve got his Rooster fish from the Kayak!”
Reviewed 31 December 2011

I always have to plan fishing for my husband and since we were in area thought Kayak fishing would be fun since was doing a charter later in MA. WOW glad we booked with Joe. besides the fact that Joe is a great guide and fun to be around, Steve got his goal of catching a rooster fish. Steven our 14 year old and i just paddled around, played on the beach and took pictures. Was a fun day and very reasonably priced as well. Highly recommend!

“Fun and great service, knowledge, expertise, and experience”
Reviewed 18 August 2010

I led a 20 person two night, three day kayak around the Gulfo Dulce. We contracted Joe to rent his kayaks, provide boat support, to guide, cook, and entertain. He was great in every category. Joe knows the area and shared his knowledge and experience in a fun and engaging way. He is a professional chef, among other talents, and there was plenty of great food at dinner and breakfast for everyone. He was alert to our needs and was always available and patient.

“best kayak tours on the osa, for fishing, mangrove tours and experience.”
Reviewed 24 November 2009

we went out a few times with costa rica kayak fishing last spring and the service was great and the fishing was phenomenal! one member of the group caught a 20 pound dorado, and the guide pulled in roosters each time. snapper, snook and a variety of jacks are commonly caught inshore, nearly a stone's throw from the beach. offshore, boat supported tours are offered for those who wish to go for larger sportfish like tuna and marlin and "offshore" there is not very far out. the owner, is well connected in town and has been guiding in the area for many years. we also went out on a sunset mangrove tour, which was beautiful and not to be missed. their tackle was well maintained and you can drag bait or lures to your liking. in addition to the knowledge of local wildlife and sportfishing experience, the tours are very reasonably priced and the size of the groups that go out are small.
