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.

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.

As you know, I never caught a sailfish before and never could have done it without your help.  Thank you Santos and Captain Rocko for the great time on your boat and teaching us so much.  Christian and I ate the Mahi Mahi we caught for dinner and are trying the tuna tonight.  Christian also couldn’t believe what a great day and we both thank you.  Great day, great boat, great catch and you both were great.  Can’t wait to do it again.

My girlfriend and I went on a fishing trip in Quepos and Manuel Antonio. The crew was absolutely fantastic and made every effort to help us catch a maximum of fish of different varieties.
We had a great time, plenty of beers and snacks, a good rest, and a wonderful experience.
Every single time we fell asleep, we would wake up at the noise of the fishing rod….signaling a new catch. The crew gradually filleted the fish and we each brought home enough for the whole week. The crew was very well aware of where the good spots were.
In brief, we highly recommend this fantastic experience!!!

You guys will never be as good as the Brazilian fishing team, but you’re close!  We had a fantastic day on Pez Espada and enjoyed everything immensely.  I’ve never seen that many Dolphin and can’t imagine how big the school of tuna must have been for the Dolphin to feed on them all day.  We grilled the tuna and it was delicious.  Hope we can make it back next year.  Thanks again for a great day; couldn’t have been better.
