Nauti Ventures

Costa Rica is known as one of the top billfishing destinations in the world, with magical Quepos being one of its fishing epicenters. If you’re looking to explore these bountiful waters with the help of the best of the best, Nauti Ventures should be at the top of your list. They are a skilled and knowledgeable crew with over 20 years of combined experience. Nauti Ventures offers half day, 3/4 day, and full day adventures with both inshore and offshore trips available. 

Join them aboard their newly remodeled 42’ Luhrs boat. This beauty combines the best of both worlds – the comfort of a luxurious yacht and top professional fishing gadgets. It features twin 430 HP Cummins engines, a flybridge, outriggers, tuna tubes, a fighting chair, a livewell, and an ice-box.

Just add a restroom with a shower, a kitchen, beds, air conditioning, and many other goodies on top of that, and get ready for the ultimate experience on the water. The boat can comfortably carry up to 10 anglers fishing at the same time.

Quepos waters are famous for all kinds of Marlin, as well as Tuna, Mahi, Wahoo, and Sailfish. Offshore trips usually take place 25 to 40 miles from the coast. In addition to the aforementioned deep-sea species, you’ll also get to target the likes of Roosterfish, Amberjack, and Snapper, depending on the fishing location and your preferences.

You’ll be supplied with top-tier fishing gear, mostly by Shimano, as well as live bait and lures. Fly fishing is also an option if you bring your own gear. Fishing licenses are easily purchased at the marina for only $16 per person per day. Just bring some sunscreen and sunglasses, and Nauti Ventures will take care of everything else.

Join them on the water and let them create your next favorite memory!
