About Your Trip

Captain Eric is your Key to unlock the renowned angling opportunities that can only be found off Quepos. Join Eric and his Crew aboard their 40-foot Luhrs for a half day adventure to stay a little closer to shore but still have the opportunity to catch some big bill fish! Though you can be limited as to how far offshore you can go on a half day trip, during the high season, from January through April, it is still possible to release sailfish on a half day trip in slick-calm weather conditions only 10 to 35 miles from the dock. If Sails are not in the cards, other fiesty and delicious pelagics abound Costa Rica's nearshore and close offshore waters like Mahi Mahi and Wahoo. Great Reef fishing is also a popular choice on these half day adventures to catch Groupers, Snappers, and other bottom dwelling denizens.
