CaribSea–The Local Legend of Costa Rica

The original owner of Caribsea was none other than the legendary fly fisherman Harry Gray. When Harry originally purchased the boat he searched far and wide to find the perfect boat for fly fishing in Costa Rica and the 46’ Guthrie was his boat of choice. After 10 years of fishing, setting records and breaking world records on fly, Harry fell ill and passed away. After a year of sitting, Bob Baker a famous flats guide from the Florida Keys decided to purchase the boat and offer charter services to clients looking for the best fishing experience in Costa Rica.

For 15 years, Captain Bob had a successful charter operation in Costa Rica, but decided to sell the boat in 2015 as new priorities in life came to play. The new owners are from Florida (living in Costa Rica) and have been in the sport fishing business for years throughout Costa Rica and decided to keep the legacy going. Since then, the boat is doing what it was designed to do. Deliver world class fishing experiences to anglers looking to enjoy the prolific waters of Costa Rica.
