Wally Pacific Excursions

Wally Pacific Excursions welcomes you to Costa Rica, a country of breathtaking beaches and world-class fishing grounds. Whether you’re a novice or experienced angler, you’ll be amazed by the marine world this part of the Caribbean has to offer. Head out of Guanacaste with Captain Daniel Chacon and search the nearshore areas for some extremely tasty and nutritious fish.

Your adventure starts on a 27’ Apex center console that accommodates as many as 10 guests. It runs on a 250 HP Yamaha engine with a maximum cruising speed of 40 knots. Together with modern GPS, fishfinder, and radio systems it uses for navigation, the boat will take you to the fish fast and safely. The boat features a flybridge, shower, and ice-box, and its fishing gear includes spearfishing and snorkeling equipment, as well as downriggers. A first mate will also be present on board to make sure everything goes smoothly and that you have the best trip possible.

Guanacaste’s inshore and nearshore waters along with its reefs and wrecks allow for plenty of great catch. To name some of the species you’ll target, there’s Roosterfish, Wahoo, Sailfish, and Bonito. To catch them, you can bottom fish, troll, spin, pop, and spearfish. Feel free to bring kids along, they’re always welcome to join in. You can choose whether to keep or release your catch. Also, note that smoking is not allowed during the trip.

There’s no need to worry about the stuff you’ll need for your trip as Captain Daniel covers you with everything from fishing gear to licenses to food and drinks.
