Caribsea Sportfishing Trips

Quepos offshore fishing is what fishing in Costa Rica is all about! The offshore World Championship has been held out of Quepos since 2012 for a reason. Catch and release records are consistently broken year after year which means theirs always a chance your next adventure could yield the same result! So if you’re into big game fish, give it a shot with Captain Tyler aboard his 46' Guthrie! With the fertile currents of the Pacific Ocean passing right along the coast of Costa Rica, you'll be in the thick of what many would say is the best sail fishing grounds anywhere in the world! Offshore fishing is great year-round in Costa Rica. In December – May period, the migration of Pacific sails is concentrated in the central pacific region of Costa Rica and offers anglers the chance at double digit release days pretty much any time in that frame window. During this time of year, Queos also gets a lot of Mahi Mahi, Blue Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna and the occasional Wahoo. For Marlin specifically, Quepos area gets a really good bite during the months of May – October. This time is when the meat fish (Mahi, Wahoo & Tuna) show up in good numbers as well. No matter what species you choose to target, Captain Tyler and his team are always excited to accomodate your goals. Their 46' Guthrie Sportfishing yacht can truly do it all. She is the last wood hull boat Guthrie ever built and is one of the best fish raising boats anywhere. She is powered by a Detroit 8V92 and cruises at 20 knots. She comes with an air conditioned cabin, full head, kitchen, two staterooms and is perfect fish-raising platform for the central pacific of Costa Rica. This boat was originally brought to Costa Rica by the Legendary Fly Fisherman Harry Gray and designed specifically for fishing the fertile Pacific waters right off Costa Rica. It features full Garmin and Raymarine electronics, Rupp Outriggers, Tuna Tubes, Live Well and pull double dredges. Captain Tyler and his crew will outfit you with the best equipment: Shimano TLD 30 and 50 class conventional along with Penn 50 and 80 class conventional and lighter tackle spinning equipment as well.

These FAD (Fish Aggregating Device) trips are specifically designed for the hardcore angler who thinks that they've done it all. Off of Costa Rica, there's an abundance of dormant underwater volcanoes scattered between 70–150 miles offshore. Because of the change in water depth and the abundance of bait in these areas, they've proven to be perfect places to deploy FADs. FADs are any underwater structure you deploy yourself—essentially allowing Captain Tyler to create his own personal reefs, mark them on his GPS, and then fish his own exclusive, offshore honey holes. For this experience, an overnight trip is absolutely worth it. Captain Tyler offers 1-night to 4-night FAD trips and can accommodate up to 4 anglers on each. All trips start on the evening of the first day, involve an overnight motor offshore, and then fishing from 5: AM to sundown; that's 12 hours of fishing on a 36-hour trip, 24 hours of fishing on a 60-hour trip, and 36 hours of fishing on a 84-hour trip. Finally, you'll travel back to Quepos overnight and be on the dock in time for breakfast. Whether you choose a 2-night trip or a 4-night trip, you'll be taken care of aboard Captain Tyler's 46′ Guthrie built in North Carolina. This boat was originally brought to Costa Rica by the legendary fly fisherman Harry Gray, but it was designed specifically for fishing the fertile Pacific waters right off Costa Rica. She is the last wood hull boat Guthrie ever built, and is one of the best fish-raising boats anywhere. She's got a fully air-conditioned cabin, full bathroom, kitchen, two staterooms, and is the perfect fish raising platform for the central pacific of Costa Rica. She features full Garmin and Raymarine electronics, Rupp Outriggers, Tuna Tubes, Live Well and pull double dredges. She is powered by a Detroit 8V92 and cruises at 20 knots. Tyler will provide all the best equipment: Shimano TLD 30 and 50 class conventional reels along with Penn 50 and 80 class conventional and spinning equipment. He also offers fly fishing equipment as well if that peaks your interest: He uses Billy Pate reels and Sage Rods. If you want to have the closest thing to a guaranteed Marlin catch, this is your trip. A trip like this is not for the faint of heart, but if you are willing to spend the time getting to these rich waters, the rewards are incredible, and Captain Tyler and his 46' Guthrie are here to make sure your Quepos FAD trip will one-up any fishing adventure you've ever been on!
