Pez Espada Sportfishing

Pez Espada Sportfishing operates one of the most popular boats in Quepos. Based out of the famous Marina Pez Vela, they run a professional service that allows anglers of all ages to get a taste of Cosa Rica’s world famous sportfishing opportunities.

If you are looking for a comfortable boat with a crew that caters to both vacationers and tournament fishermen, you don’t need to look any further than the Pez Espada. This 33 ft tournament-rigged vessel is packed with up to date equipment, including a comprehensive 2016 Raymarine electronics packet. Powered by twin Cummins engines, it travels quickly to the offshore fishing grounds, and you are sure to enjoy the ride aboard the boat’s spacious flybridge or on the comfortable seating in the cockpit. There is a full head (bathroom) on board for your convenience.

The Pez Espada is famous in the local area for consistently bringing in the big fish. Loaded with quality Penn and Shimano gear, it is the perfect base for sportfishing. Whether you want to target Roosterfish inshore or travel further out in search of Quepos’ most famous sportfishing target - the Sailfish - the experienced crew will help you hook the fish you are looking for.  Beverages, fruit and lunch are included on offshore trips.

Children are welcome on board. Bring them along and try bottom fishing for beautiful and fun species such as Triggerfish or trolling for Cero Mackerel, or take them on a whale watching excursion.

If you want to extend your offshore fishing experience, check out Pez Espada’s sister ship Rock n’ Roll, which offers exciting FAD fishing excursions for the really big ones!

I started fishing as a child with my father and went every day I could. I worked on commercial fishing boats for five years and then became a First Mate. It was always my dream to be a Captain. I love my life and the experiences I have on a daily basis.
