Kayak Fishing

Book Now

Kayak Fishing is offshore fishing at its core. The kayak was originally created by the Eskimos for “fishing”.  A kayak is quiet, fast, lightweight, stable and seaworthy.  It just might be the safest and easiest way to get you off the beach and out to the fish.  Every strike is exciting in a kayak. 

You will fish the waters of the Gulf of Nicoya near Playa Agujas for 3 hours and hopefully hook into the catch of your dreams.  We only guarantee the fishing; the catching is up to you.  The water is warm and the scenery spectacular.

All equipment is provided and we regularly catch,  Bonita, Corvina,  Grouper, Mackerel, Jacks, Roosterfish and Snapper.

Tours at 8 a.m and 1:30 p.m

We provide: Great guides, all necessary equipment, bottled water, fruit, showers, and changing rooms.

Please bring - *Hat, sun block, water shoes, bathing suit, change of clothes and a towel for after. 

* Kayak Jaco will always have dry bags available.

About Kayak Jaco

About Kayak Jaco

Costa Rica Kayak Tours

Kayak Jaco was created by Neil Kahn and Yasmin Chollette Robinson in 1998. They are a husband and wife team with over 50 years of experience in the paddling business.

Their concern for your enjoyment and satisfaction will ensure a great outing.
Kayak Jaco has been an innovator and leader in the sea kayak paddle tourism industry. We are the only tour operator to use outrigger canoes in Costa Rica and we designed and built the canoes right here.

We are also the only tour operator to have a dedicated base of operations designed specifically for handling groups of sea kayak and outrigger canoe paddlers.
We also designed and build our own lightweight bamboo paddles which truly enhance our clients' experience and are extremely ecologically friendly.
Kayak Jaco is not just a business, it's the end result of a passion for providing ecologically sound "Fun on the Water" for our clients.

Outrigger Canoe and Snorkeling Tour

Book Now

Our 1\2 day outrigger canoe tour is unique to Costa Rica. We pioneered the use of outrigger canoes as a great way to take groups on the ocean way back in 1999.

Our outriggers (Hawaiian style canoes) are great equalizers of abilities. Your steersperson in the canoe takes care of controlling your direction and everyone gets to the most beautiful beaches around at the same time. The canoes are more efficient than kayaks and paddling is a little easier. You will glide past spectacular cliffs filled with frigate birds and pelicans and your guide will point out interesting landmarks.

We snorkel (when conditions permit) from the beach so we have lots of options if someone in the group is into monkey and bird watching or beachcombing.
*(snorkeling only when conditions permit)
