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

The Fishing: Quepos, Costa Rica is the crowned jewel of this sportifishing paradise, and is well known for its flat, calm sea conditions (especially during the December-April high season) and its incredible number of billfish. Anglers arrive from all over the world as Quepos is one of the only fisheries in the world home to Blue Marlin, Black Marlin, White Marlin, and Sailfish. In addition to the billfish scene, anglers flock to Quepos for the action-packed inshore fishery and a chance to catch the coveted Roosterfish and voracious Cubera Snapper.
