The Dragin Fly was launched as an addition to the fleet of 43 foot Maverick Yachts, fishing out of Los Sueños Marina, Costa Rica. Our sister boats, the SPANISH FLY, the SEA FLY and GEOUX FLY have set a standard for excellence in customer service and satisfaction which we strive to exceed.
Typical catches include sailfish, sailfish and more sailfish, marlin, tuna and dolphin (also known as mahi mahi).
The Dragin Fly is outfitted with Shimano rods and reels for light tackle inshore fishing to the biggest marlin or tuna. The Dragin Fly cruises at 25 knots and has two air conditioners which cool the very comfortable salon, galley and cabin. Drinks and several courses of snacks are provided throughout the morning. Lunch, handmade sandwiches or hot burritos and fresh fruit, is also served during full day charters.
You will also be fishing for different types of Marlin, Dorado (Mahi-Mahi), different types of Tuna and Wahoo. All the fish have specific season when the bite is better, except sailfish, the bite is ALWAYS good
The DRAGIN FLY is now taking charters for Sea Mount Fishing!

James, Captain of the Dragin Fly : James grew up fishing for tarpon on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica and worked at a lodge there until 1993. He then moved to Golfito Sailfish Rancho, which was one of the first lodges targeting billfish on the Pacific Coast. Over the past 5 years, James has been a captain in Quepos. During the off season, he perfected his English while working as a mate on a charter boat in Marthas Vineyard. James is married and has four daughters and a son.
Alberto, First Mate : Alberto first started working with the public as a bartender, so hell make sure that you always have a cold drink. He is also incredible at hooking billfish and hooked the first billfish caught on the Dragin Fly, a 350 pound blue marlin. Before working with the Dragin Fly, Alberto was a captain in Quepos. He is married (sorry ladies) with two kids.
Marcos, Second MateMarcos is married and a proud father to a beautiful boy. We are happy to have him.
