Fishing aboard the ‘Kingpin’.

Capt. Keidel and his professional crew are ready to put you on that fish of a lifetime, help you enjoy time with your friends, or make that family vacation a success. Simply put, our mission is to ensure that your time on the water is safe and productive, while utilizing sustainable fishing practices.

‘KINGPIN’ Sportfishing practices “responsible angling“. All billfish are catch and release, period. A release mount can be ordered if needed.

We also can arrange to have your catch prepared at one of our local fine restaurants in Tamarindo
