If you’re itching to explore the beautiful waters around Quepos, Costa Rica, Reel Therapy Charters is ready to take you out for a one-of-a-kind fishing expedition!

Discover the untouched beauty and exceptional fishing locations around Quepos, and try your hand at various fishing techniques like jigging, floating baits, trolling, deep sea fishing, popping, and more. There are several trips on offer.

You will be on the lookout for a plethora of species that abound in these waters, like Mahi-Mahi (know locally as Dorado), Roosterfish, Marlin, Sailfish, Tuna, and that’s just to name a few of the local favorites.

Your captain is familiar with all the tricks and the movement of the fish, and he’ll know exactly where to take you to put you on the best bite. He will be there to help you with everything, from presenting the lure to bringing your catch into the boat. For all his hard work, tips are appreciated.

You’ll be fishing aboard a 27’ custom-built boat that can comfortably carry up to 4 anglers. It comes powered with a 300 HP Suzuki engine, top-notch marine electronics and safety gear, a livewell, and a multimedia system.

Reel Therapy Charters will provide quality fishing gear by Penn, lures, and live bait (caught along the way). Snorkeling gear is available upon request for an additional fee. Kids 5 and older are also welcome to join the fun – the captain will make sure they have an amazing time and learn a lot about fishing and nature.

After you’ve come back to land with fish in tow, the crew will clean your catch. Drinks and snacks are also included in the price, and lunch is available on full day trips. You just need to book a trip, pick a comfy outfit, and bring your desire to catch fish!
