Common Questions Asked By Customers

What are the rainy months in Costa Rica?

The Rainy Season in Manuel Antonio, Quepos is from May to December. Much of the rain occurs in the afternoon and evening, with plenty of sunshine in the morning. There is also normally a period of a few weeks, sometime in mid to late July, when the rain abates and the weather resembles the “Dry Season”. August through November is hurricane season in the Atlantic, but the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica is protected from the severe wins of those storms. Quepos does get rain, from those hurricanes, and there are sometimes several days of clouds and rain from those tropical storms..

How does the rain affect the Fishing?

The Fishing is very good when it rains. After all, why would rain disturb fish? Duh. Moreover, fishing is one of the least affected outdoor activities available in Costa Rica. Most people find the comfort of a Luxury Yacht far preferable to trekking on the wet, slippery ground of the jungle. Both of our Luxury Fishing Yachts have spacious air conditioned Cabins, where you can stay cool and dry. That is a definite advantage over a small open boat. While the Yacht is trolling, you can find plenty of shelter up on the enclosed Flybridge, or inside the spacious cabin. The only time you might get wet is while you are actually reeling in that big fish. Some even find the cooling rain refreshing. Once you bring your fish aboard for a great photo, you can dry off and relax in the Main Salon, or one of the private Staterooms, as you come down from your adrenaline rush.

The most commonly caught Big Game Fish during the rainy season are: Pacific Sailfish, Dorado, and Marlin, Tuna

From where do our Luxury Fishing Yachts depart?

Our Fishing Vessels depart from the Quepos Marina. Our 42 ft Hatteras is located in Slip B-10 and our 36 ft Bertram is located in Slip D-4 in the new Marina Pez Vela, which is quickly developing into what many believe to be the Best Marina in Costa Rica.

What options are there for a couple or just a individual to get out at sea and fish for Big Game Species?

We have great news for all of you who are traveling alone, or as a couple. Reel In Luxury Sport Fishing specializes in Split Charters, or “Shared Boats” as they are commonly known.  A split charter creates a fantastic opportunity for those anglers whether novice or avid who just can’t afford to pay for a private charter.  Split Charters work few days in advanced, so we recommend contacting us when you Arrive to Costa Rica and let us know which date you have selected and we will try our best to accommodate your request to share the expense and the thrilling experience of “reeling in” Big Fish. It’s a great way to save money, and make new friends.

How does a Split Charter work?

Most avid fishermen come to Costa Rica in small groups of 5 or 6, in order to share the fun, and also to reduce the expense of chartering a boat. That is a benefit not normally available to an individual, or a couple, traveling alone.   A split charter groups a total of 3 couples, or 6 people, together to share the fun and expense. By joining with another 2 couples, you too can enjoy the benefit of sharing the fun and expense. If a Split Charter cannot be completed with the total of 6 people, you have the option of either sharing the expense with those who have requested a shared boat, or it is cancelled. The fishing fun is divided equally among the group, taking turns at “reeling in” their Big Trophy Fish. It’s great fun watching your new friends catch their Big Fish, and everyone seems to really enjoy taking photos and video of each other, sharing all of the exciting action.

How is the offshore fishing for small children? Are they able to “Reel In” A Big Fish?

With the help of our professional captains and first mates, on both of our Luxury Fishing Vessels, small children have no problem “Reeling In” a Trophy Fish.  Safety equipment such as life jackets are provided on board for both small children and adults.

Are all species “Catch and Release” or are we able to bring some home to prepare for dinner?

In Costa Rica, the offshore species such as Pacific Sailfish and Marlin must be “Catch and Release”.  However, the Dorado and Tuna you can bring back to your hotel or villa for a delicious dinner. There is nothing quite like Really Fresh Fish, which you have the satisfaction of knowing that you caught, yourself.

Do we need our passport to purchase the $15 fishing license?

You don’t need your passport to purchase the $15 fishing license.  All you need is to write your name and your nationality.  The fishing licenses are for the customers to keep during their charter, and are valid for an entire week.
