Aventuras Del Pristis–Bahia Ballena

If you’re looking for a serious offshore fishing adventure when on vacation, look no further than Aventuras Del Pristis. Based out of Uvita on Costa Rica’s Pacific coast, you’ll hit the productive fishing grounds within 20 minutes, being at one with nature on the ocean’s deep waters.

Captain Esteban Gomez will be your guide. A local with over 15 years of fishing experience, who could be better to take you out on the water? He’s passionate about all things marine-related and hopes to share his enthusiasm with you, getting you on the biggest fish and helping you fill the boat.

Speaking of the boat, you’ll be fishing aboard a 25’ custom-built center console. Spacious and sturdy, she’ll take you across the shallows and reefs to the deep waters with ease. There’s room for up to 6 people to make themselves comfortable, taking advantage of the captain’s spread of soft drinks, snacks, and even lunch on full day trips.

You’ll start your day by engaging in some light fishing for bait, before trolling a vast array of water. Sit back and enjoy the ride as you head out across the pristine seas to the deep blue waters, waiting for the bite of that prized, monster fish.

In the shallows, get your fill of some exotic, native creatures. Go after the impressive Roosterfish and Pompano, among many other dazzling creatures. But the real trophies will come in the deep. Get ready for the fight of a lifetime as you battle it out with Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, and even Marlin that will leap out of the water to escape your line. Prepare to be wowed as these monster creatures are sure to leave an impression.

At the end of the day, the crew will clean and fillet your catch, so head back to shore with a delicious treat ready to be cooked. There’s nothing left for you to do except make sure to bring your A-game and settle in for a thrilling adventure. Aventuras Del Pristis is waiting to take you away!
