GUANACASTE, Costa Rica – Fish Tale II, an inshore and offshore fishing charter service in Costa Rica, recently made the move to Playa Flamingo in Guanacaste.

Meet Landon Dooley
Owned and operated by Landon Dooley, a US veteran having served in the Iraq War, Fish Tale II is one of his most impassioned ventures. While Landon strives for excellence, he also speaks on the importance of loving what you do. “The guy that makes pots by hand may not be the richest man, but his heart is the art that when fired makes him succeed,” Landon says. “A poet and an architect have the same effects on people. One may live more lavishly, but who is the more successful person?”
Landon Dooley’s main business is construction, but he runs 6 businesses total. Through his decorative concrete business, he has worked with such clients as Disney World, Six Flags, Top Golf, Jeep, Dodge, and multiple Zoos. “I also have a roll-off dumpster business, an Ice Skating Rink in New Mexico on my ranch here, and I have my campground, Enchanted Circle Campground,” he says of his other businesses. “We are #1 in NM three years in a row and ranked #4 in the country by Forbes.”
Fish Tale 2 Makes the Move to Playa Flamingo
Fish Tale II previously was based in Quepos in the Puntarenas province of Costa Rica. Quepos is nationally recognized as one of the fishing capitals of the world, hosting world championships for competitive fishing for the last 7 years, with Fish Tale being one of the many competitors. As tourism shifts from Quepos to Northern Guanacaste, Fish Tale II is excited to take advantage of many beneficial factors of the move. These factors include shorter sailing time for offshore fishing and better nightlife for tourists.
After their move to Guanacaste, Fish Tale II invested in new gear, including fish finders, Navionics, rocket launchers, and tuna tubes for fishermen hoping to get the most out of their trips fishing both in and offshore. They’ve also stocked the boat with new outriggers, teasers, lures, and down riggers. The boat has also been outfitted with new teak wood fighting and captain’s chairs, a new interior, and upholstery for those prioritizing comfort as well as operability.
Services and Accommodations
Fish Tale II mainly charters the popular Cabo Sportfisher and offers multi-day fishing/accommodations packages, including local hotel lodging with accommodations for larger groups. It can also arrange a full Costa Rican adventure travel and activity schedule, food, transportation, and excursions. These arranged activities are including but are not limited to rainforest canopy tours, skydiving, whale watching, whitewater rafting, ATV tours, kayaking, horseback riding, golf, snorkeling, scuba diving, sailing, sunbathing or hot springing.
Options between in and offshore fishing are both viable. “If you want to fish for 6 hours, you can stay inshore and target Roosterfish, Grouper, Snapper, Wahoo, and Mahi Mahi. Alternatively, if you have a whole day to spend on the water, you can target Marlin, Sailfish, Tuna, Wahoo, Cubera Snapper, and Mahi Mahi,” a representative of Fish Tale II says. Fish Tale II accommodates groups with up-to-date technology and comfortable accommodations on a well-running 35-foot vessel powered by twin 325 HP CAT engines, with a maximum cruising speed of 22 knots, and a trolling speed of 17 knots that can accommodate 6 guests. They also boast qualified staff, with a captain and crew that hold decades of experience. Fish Tale II is also US Veteran Owned with an English-speaking crew, a salon with AC, a full galley/full bathroom, lounge, and queen bed.
