The Eye

Cheyenne Rosales

Cheyenne Rosales

First Mate


Cheyenne Rosales is First Mate on the Capullo, and has been with us for over 18 years. Cheyenne is a natural fisherman, and handles his myriad of duties on deck with the dexterity that only years of experience can produce. No one has a better awareness of the minute to minute aspect of the Tamarind Costa Rica fishing arena. He has the best eyes in the business, and is practically always the first to spot a fish in the spread.


Roy and Louise

Roy and Louise



Roy and Louise have worked together for 25 years in various sectors from finance to customer hospitality.

Roy has been fishing since he was a boy learning his initial skills fly fishing on the rivers and lochs in Scotland. With the opportunity to live in Asia he was able to develop his sport fishing skills and his love of fishing continued. So much so that Roy and Louise moved to a remote island in Fiji to own a resort offering deep sea fishing and diving.  Always looking for a new adventure they have now settled in Costa Rica and take great pride in being able to offer Tamarindo deep sea fishing charters in one of the top fishing destinations in the world.


Roy’s goal is to make sure that each customer’s trip is a fun and enjoyable experience no matter what level of angler.

Louise will be your initial main point of contact and will always ensure that your requests are speedily dealt with. She can assist not only with the booking of the fishing charters but any other needs you may have from accommodation, transport and booking other local trips.

Roy and Louise are very customer orientated and will always go the extra mile to ensure you have a fantastic experience with Capullo Sportfishing whilst in Tamarindo.

If you have any questions about our services, fishing in the area, or if you’d like to request charter dates then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us via our contact page. We’d love to hear from you.
