trip description for Premier Quepos Billfishing in Quepos

Costa Rica is home to some of the world’s premier billfishing and the epicenter of Costa Rica’s fishery is the central Pacific town of Quepos. Located adjacent to Manuel Antonio National Park, Quepos is the ultimate destination for anglers in pursuit of all the species of Marlin as well as Sailfish, Dorado (Mahi Mahi) and Yellowfin Tuna. Captain Eric is your key to unlocking the renowned angling opportunities that can only be found off Quepos. Join Eric and his Crew aboard their 40-foot Luhrs, a vessel that's as spotless as she is battle-tested. This vessel is optimized for chasing down a once-in-a-lifetime Blue Marlin without sacrificing the comforts that you should expect from a top-tier angling operation. During the high season, from January through April, you can release numerous Sailfish on a single trip, going only 10 to 20 miles from the dock. From May to November, their clients have the chance to pursue the elusive Billfish Grand Slam: Blue Marlin, Black Marlin, Striped Marlin and Sailfish! Blue Marlin and Black Marlin can be found within 30 miles of the marina at places like the Furuno Bank. In addition to world-class billfish, Captain Eric gives his clients the opportunity to tangle with exciting and great-eating species like Yellowfin Tuna, Dorado, Wahoo, Grouper, Snappers and other species as well! Captain Eric will provide everything you need for your trips from all the fishing gear, bait, and tackle, to snacks, drinks (including BEER), and all the ice to keep everything cold. Don't forget your Costa Rica Fishing license, and we recommend bringing your sun protection (sunscreen, hats, polarized sunglasses, long-sleeved shirts). Rain gear is also a great idea. Please refrain from wearing any dark-soled shoes, as they tend to mark up the deck. Read More

If you're looking to stick around closer to shore on your Costa Rica saltwater adventure Owners Birgit & Christian and her outstanding Captain Yiyo are here to offer nearshore sport fishing trips out of the world-renowned Marina Pez Vela! Full-day 9-hour trips will always start at 7 am. While for half-day 5-hour trips you can choose between starting at 7 am or 12:30 pm depending on availability. Longer trips will give you more opportunities to catch fish but half-day trips can always get hot (action-packed) if you're not looking to spend the whole day out on the water. These half-day or full-day nearshore trips usually stay within 3 to 5 miles of shore and target Rooster Fish, Amberjack, Jack Crevalle, Bonitos, and Spanish Mackerel. You'll be aboard a 32 ft Luhrs open. She comes with a comfortable large shaded, airy seating area with a 360-degree view, a restroom with a real toilet, and a freshwater shower on deck.  Captain Yiyo and his crew meticulously maintain the boat and all their gear and will provide all the best fishing rods, reels, tackle, bait, and knowledge for your adventure. The team makes sure that the boat is stocked with snacks, fresh fruits, beverages including beer, and a light lunch for full-day trips (Half-Day trips will not supply lunch on board, but you're more than welcome to bring your own). You will need to purchase a Costa Rica Fishing License before you head aboard. They can be purchased online, or the team will guide you in purchasing the mandatory fishing license at the Marina. The license is slightly subject to change in price but usually costs 17$ per person and is valid for eight days. Captain Yiyo and the team will make sure you're well taken care of on this fantastic nearshore adventure! Read More

Quepos Inshore/Nearshore Fishing

There are few places on this planet with the marine diversity that the coastal fishing in Quepos offers. On top of that, you’re surrounded by jungle, beaches, and beautiful blue ocean in a truly exotic place. Quepos is not just an anglers paradise, it's an adventurers paradise.

Quepos is home of the roosterfish which is on many anglers bucketlist. Roosterfish get their name from their comb that extends above their head similar to a rooster. These fish get fairly large and are formidable fighters when hooked up. While trolling the nearshore waters you will also have the chance to catch small yellowfin tuna, mackerel, and kingfish. If fishing with bait and lures then you can find snook close to shore and snapper a little further out. All of these fish make for a great day of fishing and with jungle, beaches, and ocean all insight, it's hard to imagine a better place to wet a line.

Quepos Deep Sea Fishing

Offshore fishing from Quepos will give you the opportunity to target species including mahi-mahi, wahoo, and giant yellowfin tuna, but the most sough-after fish here is the billfish. It’s not uncommon to hook up to 15 sailfish in a day and the marlin are known to hit 700 pounds. This offshore fishery is top-notch for giant pelagic species and if you hook up to one, you're in for a long fight.
