Want to site see, kayak, dolphin watch, surf, horseback ride, take rainforest, mangrove or orchid garden tours? All of this and more is available for those seeking additional activities.

Cory has been a fisherman all his life. Growing up in Bermuda gave him the taste for saltwater and his love and respect for the ocean. After returning to Canada at age eleven, Cory continued his Love of fishing in the rivers and lakes surrounding Winnipeg. He later moved to Calgary and the Bow River where he began fly fishing. After attaining a diploma in Engineering Drafting and Design, he opted for an office in the outdoors. Cory began his career as a professional guide at Scott Lake Lodge, where he has been working summers since 1993. In 2002, he started guiding out of Puerto Jimenez, Costa Rica, where he fell in love with the country, the Golfo Dulce, and the fishing. Although he likes catching them all, inshore and off, the Roosterfish became my favorite target. Through the years Cory has concentrated more on larger Roosters, becoming proficient at catching trophy size of 40-75lbs. In 2007 we started Tropic Fins Adventures.
