Caribsea, Quepos sportfishing charter offers world class inshore, offshore and overnight fishing trips to the most fertile fishing grounds of Costa Rica. Whether you are new to the sport, a weekend worrier or tournament angler, you are sure to have a great day on the water.

Quepos is located in the central pacific of Costa Rica and this area of Costa Rica offers excellent sport fishing year round. We typically have flat calm seas and great year round weather. Average run time to the fishing grounds is 45 minutes to 1.5 hours unlike other parts of the world where it takes hours and sometimes days to get to the fishing action.

Offshore, inshore, seamounts… what’s the best option?

For the best fishing experience we only offer private charters. Deciding on inshore, offshore or overnight, depends on the type of species you want to target and the overall experience you are looking to have. Any trip can include bottom fishing, trolling, or a combination of both. Bottom or inshore fishing allows you to target species like roosterfish, grouper, red snapper, amberjack, and cubera snapper. Offshore or overnight trips allow you to target are pelagic species like blue marlin, black marlin, sailfish, yellowfin tuna, dorado and wahoo.
