Costa Rica is near the top of almost everyone’s fishing bucket list, and the central coast near Quepos is the epicenter. Caribsea Sportfishing is one of the best charter operations operating out of Quepos and nearby Los Sueños Marina, and provides a variety of charters to tap into this world-class fishery.
The central Pacific coast of Costa Rica typically has flat calm seas and the offshore fishing is great year-round. In December – May period, the migration of Pacific sails converges on the area and offers anglers
the chance at double digit release days pretty much every day. During this time of year, Quepos also gets a lot of mahi, blue marlin, yellowfin tuna and the occasional wahoo. For marlin in specific, Quepos area gets a really good bite during the months of May – October when the meat fish show up in good numbers as well.
Caribsea offers both day trips for offshore and inshore fishing as well as overnight trips. 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.
For the ultimate adventure, overnight fishing trips aboard Caribsea offer the chance to visit more remote bodies of water and enjoy extended hours of fishing and the live-aboard feel. There is an abundance of dormant underwater volcanoes scattered between 70 – 150 miles offshore. Because of the change in water depth and the congregation of bait in these areas, they have proven a perfect place to deploy FADs (Fish Aggregating Devices), which can produce some of the most insane marlin fishing seen anywhere in the world.
Caribsea has a fleet to choose from including the flagship Caribsea, a meticulously maintained 46’ Guthrie Sportfish, Muy Caliente, a well equipped 31’ Bertram, and Sunny 1, a 32’ Maverick located in the beautiful Los Sueños Resort and Marina. All are captained by bilingual, experienced captains who are some of the best in the area. Take your pick and customize your own charter to take advantage of the amazing fishery in Costa Rica.
