Sweet Gulf Book

Sweet Gulf

Crocodile Bay and Botanika are collaborating with Tom Olivo, Todd Staley, and others to produce a fine-art photography book featuring the uniqueness of the world’s most biodiverse fishing habitats on the planet - the Golfo Dulce on the Osa Peninsula in Southern Costa Rica.  The book will illustrate how the rainforest’s world-renowned biodiversity naturally extends into the Golfo Dulce and the surrounding Pacific Ocean. The combination of geology, climate, ocean proximity, landscape orientation and Marine Biology combine to create one of the greatest gamefish habitats on the planet.  

Sweet Gulf will be a photographic and fine art portfolio collection that will visually display the history of fishing in and around the Golfo Dulce, the unique biodiversity and wildlife inhabiting the Osa Peninsula, many of the prominent wildlife and marine conservation organizations actively engaged in preserving the Gulf, the “legacy influential people” involved in the fishing industry and angling information/tactics about the most sought-after gamefish. It will also contain compelling and humorous angling stories of epic battles that leave a lasting memory. 

The book will ideally be a “must have” resource for anyone visiting the Costa Rica to fish in the region but just as important – the book will offer broad appeal to anyone visiting the Osa and experiencing the combined wonders of the Rainforest and the Gulf itself.

The Dominant Offshore Species Featured Include:

      Marlin (Blue, Black and Striped), Pacific Sailfish, Yellowfin and Bigeye Tuna, Dorado (Mahi-Mahi), and Wahoo.
