Bluefin Sportfishing - Bluefin I

Quepos, Puntarenas Province, C…
Quepos -PU, Costa Rica

Bluefin Sportfishing operates out of the legendary sportifishing town of Quepos, offering fishing trips to suit any schedule. Fish the river mouths and rocks for Roosterfish, Jacks, Snapper, and other inshore species or head offshore to do battle with big game pelagics like Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, and Yellowfin Tuna. One thing is for sure - whatever you do, it is going to be epic!

You will be spending the day fishing aboard the Bluefin I. This 26’ custom-built sportfishing boat was specifically designed to carry groups of four out to catch the fish of their dreams and features everything you will need to do just that. She comes equipped with GPS and fishfinder to get you on the best catch, outriggers to troll for fast-moving fish, and a fighting chair to give you an edge in hard-fought battles offshore.

You will be fitted out with a wide range of equipment to match the long list of species you can target on your trip. A choice of light and heavy tackle is combined with the option to troll, jig, and bottom fish, meaning no fish is safe from your hooks. To make things even better, a choice or fresh live bait or realistic lures will make them unable to stay away. Fly fishers are also more than welcome to bring their favorite tackle along.

The Bluefin team is one of the best in town and their captains have been honing their skills for decades to get where they are today. The crew will work tirelessly your whole trip to make sure you stay hooked up. They will clean and fillet all your catch for you at the end of the day, ready to take home and enjoy as you discuss the triumphs and near-misses of your exciting day at sea.

Bluefin Sportfishing is committed to sustainability, working in partnership with the Fort Lauderdale Billfish Foundation as well as local partners to preserve the fish stock both for future generations to enjoy.
