Been lots of schools of Yellow Fin Tuna out there lately, and around the Tuna we are usually seeing sailfish and Marlin. We hooked up 5 Marlin this week between Junior and John W, have seen Yellow Fin Tuna on I believe every trip, and then a few sails a day as well! Weather has been really nice, terrible night rains that clear out at 5-7am and then pretty fishing days and pretty calm oceans. Great fishing here in Quepos Costa Rica!

Offshore lately has been a super mixed bag, hard to tell what we will get into! Today, John W released an awesome black Marlin, a sailfish and then had some other nice bites. The rest of the week, we have seen nice big schools of Yellow Fin Tuna, some Waho, and there are usually some sailfish always around. John W also had a day last week with a double Marlin Hookup, it's been tons of fun! Weather during the day has been great, with some hard night rains clearing out usually around an hour before we leave. Been nice because it has been washing out logs and trees into the ocean, and they have been holding some nice offshore bait! Great offshore fishing and great weather here fishing in Quepos Costa Rica!

Offshore fishing has been an awesome variety of fish lately! We just finished our mostly sailfish season that runs from January to April. During those months we see lots of sailfish, but 95 percent of the fish we catch are sailfish. Starting around early May and running through December, we'll still see the some sailfish every trip, but we also get into Wahoo, Yellow Fin Tuna and Dorado! Been some great fishing variety and nice days out there so far this May! Great Quepos Costa Rica Fishing!

Mike on our Stress Reeliever 1 had an awesome first day of the IGFA's biggest tournament, the Offshore World Championship. There were 74 boats participating in the tournament, which are the best from all of Costa Rica. Mike released the first sailfish of the tournamnet and held 4th place until late afternoon. Mike ended the first day of the tournament with 9 sails released and we're looking forward to a few more good days of fishing! Another couple of cool pictures I just received are from our friends from the Red Tuna fishing shirt club. They decided to jump in the water for pictures with their sails. And then the bottom shot is an awesome trip we had out with a father and daughter this month, catching her first Pacific Sailfish! Great month of April fishing here in Quepos Costa Rica.

March 2016 ended up being an amazing month out there for sailfish with John W and Alex on the Stress Reeliever 2 releasing 409 sailfish! Today was pretty good as well, John W had the day off and Alex took the boat are released 10 sails and had a few more that came off. Weather has been pretty good as well, lots of sun and mostly calm oceans, been some great times out there offshore!

John W has been on the hottest week of the year, today the Stress Reeliever 2 went out and released 26 sails in one day and had several more hooked up. Weather has been perfect this week, a nice breeze to keep us cool, but no waves at all, and usually non stop sailfish action. Great fishing days out here in Quepos Costa Rica!
August to November
Starting to see some big Marlin, and hopefully this year will be as good as last year. Last year we had tons of nice marlin from August to October, and we also saw lots of sailfish and Dorado. There is also a reef on the way out that has really heated up and we should have the chance on most offshore trips to nail the snapper, grouper and tilefish. Lots of action and plenty of food fish every trip! Inshore, we are also seeing more snapper and I think that should be consistent. Roosterfish are going to be bigger during these months, it will take a little more work to find them, but I don't think we will have any full day trips where we don't get into at least a few. Weather should be good during the day, some good rain at night, and usually the ocean is flat out here. Great fishing here in Quepos Costa Rica!

Thinking about doing something tropical but don't know where to start? I'd love to get everything setup for you! I have stayed at almost every hotel here, I know which ones you will like and which ones are prettier on their webpages :) Let me handle all the details like hotel reservations and transport, so you can focus on just relaxing. Also, Costa Rica is by far the most stable and safe place in Latin America. With us guiding your trip, you will see all the awesome things this amazing and safe country has to offer. As if the awesome beach just 5 minutes from the dock isn't enough reason to fall in love with Costa Rica, you could always visit other parts of this small but amazing country as well. You could check out Volcano Arenal, which is very active and has multiple hot water resorts at the base, or MonteVerde, a cloud forest with zip lines, the best ATV trips on Earth, and massive suspension bridges. Closer to Quepos, there are amazing White Water Rafting tours, and horseback trails, waterfalls and more! Even if you can't fish, I love to answer any questions you have at all about the country. I have been to just about everywhere there is to go here, and I'd love to share what I loved. But a bit of warning, after my first trip here, I was hooked, so be careful or we just might become neighbors :)
Giving you the best fishing experience for your dollar, providing a top notch experience at both inshore and offshore fishing sportfishing in Costa Rica. Directly serving the Manuel Antonio and Quepos area of Puntarenas, Costa Rica. 45 minutes south of Herradura, Los Suenos and Jaco, 30 minutes north of Dominical, or a 30 minute flight from San Jose. Our main focus is sportfishing for large billfish including Sailfish, Black Marlin, Blue Marlin, and Striped Marlin. Other fish we like to go after are Dorado, (aka dolphin, Mahi Mahi) yellowfin tuna, amberjack, snapper, and rooster fish (inshore).
Costa Rica is one of the premier places in the world not only to fish but to vacation. Boasting Several different climate types from cloud forests, volcanoes, and many tropical beaches, there is something for everyone here. On the Pacific side, there are an abundance of Marlin and Sailfish. On the Atlantic side there are tons of Tarpon. We are located and focus on the Marlin Sportfishing on the Pacific side of the country.
Quepos is one of the premier fishing spots in Costa Rica. Located in the dead center of the Pacific coast, it gives us access to fish various fishing grounds, including the same fishing grounds fished by Los Suenos and Dominical. Also protected by two large peninsulas, The water in front of Quepos is also the calmest water in Costa Rica, with wave heights rarely measuring over 3 feet. Great for first time fisherman, or fisherman who don't like to go home with bruises:)
Quepos has a pretty nice charter fleet. There are about 35 charter boats that are fishing in Quepos, about half of those are well maintained with good captains. If you are looking for a smaller or bigger boat, I am friends with almost everybody here and I can give you my discounted "agency" price on any charter boat fishing in Quepos. That price is usually similar to the price I offer the public on personal charter boat (for a simliar sized boat).
Quepos is the town that is located next to Manuel Antonio park and beaches, which are the most sought after beaches in Cosat Rica. Low currents, clear water, great fishing, and cliff dwelling-ocean view hotels make this an unforgettable place to stay. Hotel prices are on par or lower than most average American hotels, but with a much nicer views!
Costa Rica doesn't have fishing seasons and limits like the US, but that doesn't mean we can kill everything we hook. We release all billfish unless they come in dead (1 per year), that includes releasing both sailfish and Marlin.We are allowed to keep other gamefish though, and finding either a Mahi, Yellow Fin Tuna, Amberjack or Snapper for dinner is almost always a possibility.
Unlike most websites in Google, we are not a booking agency. John S owns all four of our boats, so you are communicating directly with the owner of the company, not someone upselling a friends boat to make a quick buck. Even if you don't book here, always book directly with the boat owner to get the best prices.
