If you want to add some true local flair to your Costa Rica experience, then come aboard The Brother Alex Tour charters in Jaco, and get ready to see how these fishermen reel ‘em in! Captain Alexis Lopez and his brother, Capt. Alexander, grew up here on the ocean, so it’s fair to say they know these waters like the backs of their own hands. Get ready to combine some incredible angling action with stunning scenery and plenty of relaxation!

Capt. Alexis has been fishing all of his life, and decided to turn this passion into a successful charter business over 12 years ago. Along with his brother, he wanted to use his wealth of knowledge to introduce guests from far and wide to this fantastic fishery. They offer trips exploring Costa Rica’s inshore and nearshore waters, with plenty of time for relaxing on the way!

Your comfort is a top priority to both captains, so get ready for a journey on board their truly impressive vessel. She’s a 30’ Costa Rica Mako center console, and can comfortably accommodate up to 5 guests. On board, you’ll find a private toilet, and a spacious deck that offers plenty of room for chilling out. She’s equipped with all of the latest navigational and safety gear, including life vests for little ones – so bring the whole family along!

You’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to the species on offer – no matter how far offshore you travel, you’ll have the chance to hook a wide variety of fish, including Red Snapper, different Grouper, Amberjack, Barracuda, and world-famous big game superstars such as Mahi Mahi and Blue Marlin. All this fishing is hungry work, so your trip also includes snacks and drinks. You can sip a beer as you troll or jig for the catch of a lifetime! Want to snorkel, too? Just let your captain know!

Your captains will make sure you’re decked out with top-quality Shimano rods and reels, as well as tackle, bait, and a fishing license. Come aboard The Brother Alex Tour and see how the locals do it!
