JP Sportfishing Tours - Sea Lady

JP Sportfishing Tours has been operating in Quepos since 1993, heading out in search of great fish aboard their two great boats, the Sea Lady and the Wild Lady. They offer a choice of trips and departure times to suit any schedule and promise incredible fishing on all their charters.

Quepos is famous for its sportfishing, with monster billfish cruising the deep and exotic hunters patrolling the shallows. These guys offer you the best of both worlds, with the option to stay inshore, fishing the bays and river mouths for Roosterfish and Jacks or to head up to 40 miles offshore in search of massive Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, and more.

Whether you’re after high stakes on the high seas or big battles in shallow waters, the Sea Lady is the perfect boat for the job. This 34’ Crusader sportfisher is as at home in the bay as it is in the blue and comes equipped to dominate both. She also makes for a comfortable ride, with space for six guests and a cruising speed of over 20 knots to get you to the best waters.

The Sea Lady is armed with a battery of marine electronics to lock onto the captain’s top spots and seek out the biggest fish once you’re there. Her outriggers will spread your lines far and wide, rigged with bait fresh from the livewell, or even from her tuna tubes. These will tempt in some serious monsters, so luckily she’s got a fighting chair, too.

JP Sportfishing Tours have an option for everyone. Half day trips are great for families or friends who don’t fancy going offshore. On full day trips, you can battle a real who’s who of big game pelagics. Fancy the ultimate fishing adventure? Book in for a three-day Economy Package. Fly in on your own private plane to spend three full days fishing and four nights staying in a comfortable local hotel.

Whatever you do, you will be fishing with a company which has been guiding groups to their dream fish for almost a quarter of a century. They are the name you can trust to build your perfect fishing trip.
