Quepos Fishing – MoonWalker

Quepos Fishing operates a fleet of awesome vessels out of the prestigious Marina Pez Vela. They offer a wide variety of trips targeting an even richer range of species. Climb aboard the MoonWalker for four, six, or eight hours, fishing inshore or offshore for the awesome fish which made the town famous.

Stay in the shallows, fishing the bays and for a range of table and game fish. Hard-fighting Roosterfish and Jack Crevalle will give you plenty of action, while tasty Snapper will send you packing with some delicious dinner at the end of the day.

Fancy getting your hooks into something bigger? Head out to the high seas to target the biggest of them all! Blue and Black Marlin, Pacific Sailfish, Yellowfin Tuna, Wahoo, and Mahi Mahi all patrol the blue waters offshore, offering some of the best big game sportfishing on the whole planet – there’s a reason the IGFA World Championships keep getting held here!

The MoonWalker is the perfect boat for all of this. At 33’ long, she can carry six guests with ease while still not sacrificing speed like a larger cruiser would. She cruises at 24 knots, carrying you to the very best waters in style and safety, with plenty of little luxuries and a literal boatload of awesome fishing equipment.

The boat features the latest electronics and navigational equipment to get you fishing in the right place, outriggers for the best spread possible, and tuna tubes to help lure in the biggest fish around. Once hooked, you can strap yourself into the MoonWalker’s fighting chair and get ready for the fight of a lifetime.

All Quepos Fishing trips come with food and drinks for everyone on board, and everything you will need for a great day’s fishing. Just bring your license (buy one online or at the dock), your camera, and plenty of energy, because you are in for some seriously good fishing.
