Quepos Fishing FAQ
Are the prices listed per person?
No, the prices shown are for the boat no matter how many people you bring out to have an awesome day catching fish! The only thing not included in the trip price is the tip and fishing license. The fishing licenses are 15 dollars for a one week license, and are sold by the dock in the mornings before the trip. Sometimes the people who sell the licenses don’t show up, and in that case you won’t need to buy a license.
Why are you so much cheaper than similar boats in Quepos?
Lots of reasons. First and foremost, we charge less because we love to fish and when we charge less we get to go more often. Another reason is this is an owner run boat and website so you aren’t paying any agenciy fees you pay when book from other websites. Why pay 20% more to go through an agency? Also, Owner John W spent lots of money rebuilding our boats using corecell, carbon fiber, and special fiberglass weaves to make boats that weigh half of what our competitors boat weigh. Lighter boats burn around half the fuel, so we can charge less than our competitors, and still buy more fishing gear! We also rebuild our motors long before they need it, and not worn out motors burn less fuel. If you want to go with a crew who is just as excited about fishing (or maybe even more excited) as you are, then you have found the right boat!
What is included in the prices?
Included in the price is the boat with Captain and Mate (Mate is there just to help you fish),lunch, fresh fruits, cold drinks (Imperial beer-soda–tea-water), bait, and an unforgettable time!
Are the waters rough offshore?
From November to April the waters offshore are comparable to a small lake. From April to October, they get a little more choppy, but usually not too bad.
What electronics do you have on the boat?
All the boats have new VHF radios which are always in range of the marina, Furuno GPS Chartplotters with Costa Rican Maps, and high end Furuno Sonars. All the electronics are in new working condition.
What is the best time of the year to fish?
