Soleil Sport Fishing

Soleil Sport Fishing offers year-round adventures out of Quepos, Costa Rica. If you’ve always wanted to feel the adrenaline rush you get when the fish bites your bait and starts pulling the line - this is it! With an experienced crew by your side, you’ll feel like a pro in no time. And when you realize how easy it is to book a trip with them, you’ll wonder why you even waited for so long.

Everything starts with a boat. The captain will meet you on a 28’ custom built boat that accommodates up to 5 guests. This reliable center console was built in 2019, so she features new navigational electronics and a 150 HP Yamaha engine. The boat features a live bait tank, a cooler, and snorkeling equipment, just in case you want to swim for a bit.

Fish whatever is in season. If you stay closer to the shore, you can go after Roosterfish, Snook, Jack Crevalle, Cubera Snapper, and Grouper. But if you’re ready for a true adventure, take a few hours more and sail offshore. This is where you get the opportunity to catch Marlin, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Sailfish, and many more.

What do you need to do to get ready? Just pick a trip and show up! The crew takes care of everything - your license, fishing equipment, food, drinks, and even catch cleaning. It’s never been that easy to get ready for the fishing trip of your life.

Soleil Sport Fishing is at your service, ready to start the engines!

I've been born and raised in the area, so fishing is in my blood. I've always loved the boats and dreamed of having my own one day. That wish finally came true in 2012, when I started my own charter business.
