Bahia Rica – Conquistador II

Bahia Rica extends its amazing offer with another boat, specially rigged for offshore trips! The Conquistador II is ready for blue oceanic waters off the coast of Costa Rica. Powered by brand new twin 200 HP Mercury Sea Pros engines, you’ll get to where you need to go and you’ll get there smoothly.

The captain limited the capacity to only 4 guests, to make sure there’s more than enough room for everyone to fish in comfort. The boat is also equipped with tuna tubes so there’s live bait capacity as well.

Your main targets are Billfish, Mahi Mahi, and Tuna. The crew prefers trolling but always brings casting equipment in case you come across schools feeding on the surface. Even though the boat is perfect for offshore adventures, it also works very well inshore for chasing Rooster or Seabass. You’ll be comfy under the shade of the bimini top as you scour the waters and coast for signs of fish activity. You can be as active as you like or let the crew do most of the work.

Captain Thomas encourages catch and release policy for all species. You’re welcome to keep some fish, mostly the amount that’s enough for dinner. The crew will provide you with all necessary fishing equipment and bait. If you are a fly fisherman they can cater to that too but you have to bring your own equipment.

All trips come with lunch, snacks and cold beverages such as water, soda, and beer.

Bring your good luck charm and let’s get fishing!

    The offshore trip is the hunt for big fish 20-45 miles out in the open ocean. The ride out is from 1-2 hours depending on oceanic conditions and where the bite is. You are comfortably seated in the shade as the crew troll a spread of lures and dead baits for some of the ocean's fastest and most acrobatic fish. The scenery is great and there are good chances of seeing dolphins, whales, and turtles during the trip as well. Bring your camera and your good luck charm for the adventure of a lifetime!

    This is an inshore trip where we will go for inshore species such as roosterfish, jacks, smaller tunas, snappers, sea bass and whatever else presents itself. We fish the coastal water along rock structures and islands with the option of trolling in the open parts as well. This trip gives you a chance at more tide changes, which affects the fishing. A full day of fishing also means you can target alternative species that are farther away.

I am a marine biologist from the University of Norway with a Masters degree in Sharks. I have always loved fishing since I was young. We had a boat on the fjord and I would go out as much as possible. In fact, I was inspired by Hooper in "Jaws" to become a marine biologist. I just feel relaxed on the water and am fascinated by marine life. In 2006 I bought a boat and started charters on the Oslofjord. In 2007 I moved to Costa Rica and my wife and I started Bahia Rica Adventures. We now have 3 boats and run fishing tours as well as other water-based tours.
