If you’re ready to go sport fishing in Quepos, come aboard the Dia Tuanis. Captain Javier will be your guide, which allows you to benefit from more than 19 years of knowledge and experience.

Around here, fishing is popular for Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Black Marlin, Cubera Snapper, Roosterfish, Sailfish, and more with any luck. During the trip, you might be spinning, popping, trolling, jigging, or maybe something more specialized in this area. Fish caught during the trip are yours to take home, so long as they’re within the legal limit. The crew can even clean your catch for you. Have a cooler ready in the car!

Your fishing machine for the day is a 28’ Shamrock offshore sport fishing with space for 4 passengers. It has outriggers, a fighting chair, and all the essentials, plus a toilet on board for your convenience. Capt. Javier will provide rods and reels for you, as well as lures. Live bait is on offer, but you should ask the captain whether you’ll be catching it yourself.

Planning a family adventure? Kids are absolutely welcome! If you don’t have a child-sized life vest of your own, be sure to ask if there’s one on board. Remember to bring a hat, sunglasses, bottled water, and sunblock (non-spray). Drinks are included, free of charge. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, but avoid hard liquor and glass bottles. There will be light snacks available on board.

A First Mate will be there to make sure everything is running smoothly. Mates often work for tips, and it’s customary to offer them a 10–20% tip. You might need to get a local fishing license before the trip. This information is usually available online, or you can ask the captain. Some species may be off-limits or require a special tag, so make sure you know what to expect.

South Pacific Sportfishing Dia Tuanis will make it easy for you to go fishing in Quepos. So, how about booking that trip?

Capt. Javier runs trips out of Quepos aboard a 28’ Shamrock vessel. These waters are known for Mahi Mahi and Marlin and he will show you how to catch them, whether you're trolling or jigging. With extensive knowledge of the area, he has a trick or two up his sleeve, and the only way to learn is to join him out on the water!
