The full day offshore fishing charters depart no later than 7:30 from the Quepos Dock.  The return time can vary between 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.   Charter will include food, water, beer, soda, ice tea, fruits, and snacks.  The boat will be equipped with fishing and navigational equipment.  The all day offshore fishing tour will give you the most time on the water than any charter, thus giving you the best chances of having a productive day of fishing.   Everyone above the age of 16 must purchase a fishing license which has a cost of $15 and can be bought in the Quepos Marina on the day of the fishing trip.

 

The bate used to fish offshore is called ballyhoo.  Trolling is done to make the ballyhoo look as though it is alive and thus attract the offshore species.  During an offshore charter you can experience both a morning bite or the afternoon bite, so patience is a very important factor while deep sea fishing.  Our boats are fast, secure and fully equipped for the deep sea fishing which will help you to achieve your goal of reeling in a big game fish.

Your heart will race, as adrenaline rushes through your veins, the first time a big sailfish, marlin or dorado takes the bait. The crew scrambles to get all of the other lines out of the water, as your First Mate hands you the rod, which now sports a fighting fish, at the other end of the line.

Our all day fishing excursions include a delicious, full course hot lunch, prepared in our galley. We pride ourselves in our cuisine, and our clients rave about the food.

We like to say; “There are no ham and cheese sandwiches served aboard our Luxury Yachts.

Speaking of food, an occasional plate of fresh raw Mahi-Mahi is a special treat, and the all day Offshore trips provide the best opportunity to catch some. The crew will fillet the dorado, affording you a chance to taste the freshest sashimi you’ve ever eaten.

We always try to keep a good supply of wasabi and soy sauce aboard, just for sushi lovers.

This thrilling experience will be one, you’ll long remember and leave you yearning to return to this world famous paradise for big game fishing.

What to do with the fish you catch?

This is one of the most common questions we receive from our customers.  The species that you are allowed to bring back from an offshore fishing charter are Mahi-Mahi and Yellow Fin Tuna.  However, the Mahi-Mahi and Yellow Fin Tuna must reach a certain weight and length which will determine as to whether or not you can bring it back. Please take into consideration that Costa Rica has specific rules and regulations which are intended to protect the species that live in these waters.  The first mate on our boats are trained to fillet the fish for you and place it in a Zip Blog bag with ice, so that the fish will keep fresh.   Afterwards, you can choose to visit one of the  many seafood restaurants in the Manuel Antonio area.  If you are staying in a Villa or Hotel, you may tell the chef how you want your fish to be prepared.
