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.

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.

Of course, there are some PROs for shared charters. If you can organize it or find a partner that has enough traffic to pair different parties together.

The fishing charter that is right for you depends on your end goal while fishing and the overall budget you are willing to spend. As with most things in this world, the greater the reward, the greater the cost.

However, even a shared charter can be a ton of fun and if you are just looking to enjoy a day on the water, a private trip or shared trip is a great way to do that!!! #caribseasportfishing #sportfishing #flyfishing #sharedfishingcharter
