Based out of Puerto Jiménez, PEZ KOI is your ticket to a memorable time on the water.

Capt. José will do his best to make sure you have a fun day full of fishing. He specializes in bottom fishing, trolling, jigging, popping, and spinning, all to get you on that bite. This involves 6 to 8-hour trips, mainly fishing for Dolphin, Roosterfish, Tuna, Amberjack, Grouper, and Jack, depending on the season and conditions on the day.

The price of your trip includes all the rods, reels, and terminal tackle you’ll need for a productive day on the water. Don’t forget to buy a fishing license before the trip!

The catch you keep will be shared with the crew following the trip. Please get in touch with the captain if you have any questions.

The price of your trip also includes complimentary snacks, drinks, but you’re welcome to bring your own. Please let the captain know if you have any questions or special requests.

Children are welcome aboard so you’re good to get the young ones started early.

Jose has over 15 years of experience fishing the local waters. Two years ago he decided to turn his hobby into a profession and start guiding trips and showing guests how beautiful and rewarding of an experience the local fishing grounds can provide. Jose speaks very basic English, but when he has English-speaking customers he hires a guide that speaks English fluently. The favorite part of his job is seeing customers get the fish they’ve been targeting for a long time.
