Caribsea Sportfishing

Caribsea Sportfishing is based in Quepos, which is considered to be Costa Rica’s fishing capital. The experienced and bilingual crew offers inshore and offshore adventures on these prolific waters, which they have been fishing their whole lives, and are sure to deliver a Costa Rica fishing experience like no other!

Caribsea is a 46-foot Guthrie Flybridge sportfisher built in North Carolina and outfitted with the latest equipment and technology to provide up to 8 guests with an amazing day on the water. With a 750HP Detroit engine, the vessel can reach a maximum cruising speed of 20 knots and get you to the fishing grounds in no time.

The boat comes fitted with modern Raymarine electronics, including an integrated GPS, depth recorder, and a radar. There is a tuna tower, a fighting chair, outriggers, downriggers, center rigger, tuna tubes, and a live bait tank all available to make your trip more productive.

The vessel’s main salon is air conditioned and comes fitted with isinglass curtains so that you don’t miss any of the fishing action outside, and the boat also includes a full marine head, shower, kitchen with fridge, two berths, and a stereo to provide further entertainment during the day.

Caribsea Sportfishing uses only the best quality Shimano fishing equipment and specializes in a wide variety of fishing techniques. Their flexible full day trips can take you inshore or offshore fishing targeting your choice of species such as Sailfish, Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Tuna and Wahoo offshore, or Roosterfish, Snapper, Grouper, and Snook inshore.

All trips include rods, reels and tackle, lures, live bait, fish cleaning and filleting, snacks, drinks and a delicious lunch.

No matter if you are fishing for the first time, or are a tournament angler, the Caribsea crew offer world-class sport fishing that is great for everyone!
