Tour Overview:
We will pick you up at he the Paquera ferry landing or the agreed upon location at between 0600 and 0700. Depending on the bite we run to our desired starting point and set out the spread. Should we come across tuna we switch out the standard billfish spread to a tuna spread or break out the casting gear to try to catch one on top water. During the day, you will get to enjoy snacks, fresh fruit, lunch and beverages including beer. We are then back to the drop-off point at between 1630 and 1730.

Most of the fishing is done by trolling. It is common to run between 20-35 miles before we start fishing. Since we are centrally located we can fish both Cabo Blanco and south towards Quepos in the same areas the boats from Los Sueños. This all depends upon the reports from the previous days.
We use a mix of dead baits, dead baits combined with artificials and plain artificials in our spread. If live bait is available or we catch some offshore we also use this. We also run several teasers for the bait and switch technique which is a blast.

Water Type


Costa Rica sport fishing is something every angler should try. The fishing is full of surprises because we are located close to where the open ocean meets the Gulf of Nicoya. These currents are rich in baitfish, which in turn bring in the bigger gamefish. It is possible to catch every gamefish that swims in Costa Rican waters in these currents under the right conditions. Sharks that rip your fish off the hook, smaller fish eaten by bigger fish and crazy bites by unknown monster fish are some of the things we experience on our Costa Rica sport fishing tours. Choose your own fishing style. We cater to fishermen who enjoy casting, jigging, trolling or bait fishing. It is possible to fly fish as well but you should bring your own fly fishing gear as this is the only thing we do not supply. The continental shelf off the coast of Costa Rica is shallow, making it a short trip out to the deep, nutrient rich fishing areas, where some of the world’s most awesome fish reside. We mainly troll for sailfish, marlin, dorado and wahoo. If we come across a school of yellowfin tuna we bring out the casting gear and target them top water style.
