Most boats are not at docks. You will take a water taxi so your feet will get wet. Make sure you have water shoes or are willing to go barefoot on a rocky beach.

Find a local captain. Bring some big poppers and top lures. White feather jigs are also good.

Not the best time of year to catch fish, but the charters out of Quepos give you the best chance of catching them. The port was very well kept, clean, and professional. A great experience.

Use Gitana! Tell them you're a novice and ask to practice proper use of the reel beforehand. It is a bit of an art to keep a large fish in the hook.

Temper your expectations and listen to your crew. We had an idea of what we wanted - we communicated that and were open to being agile on the bite.

Try shoreline first because it is more accessible and there are plenty of fish. DEEP SEA: At least 2 persons, spend the dollars for a larger boat, try to avoid turist season.

I'd definitely recommend fishing out of Sierpe - it's totally different that fishing out of a large marina... Super cool experience. You get to see the Sierpe River and experience great fishing conditions in a very nice area of Costa Rica.

Go for a full day if you want to catch multiple fish. Don't get too worked up over the little things, they work hard for you. Enjoy the experience come what may Pura Vida.

The weather tends to be nice in early May. Low chances of rain, especially during the mornings. It's not usually too windy, so not very choppy. There's mahi to be had at this time of the year, though they tend to be on the smaller size. You can go chase yellow-tail, but it might be too far offshore for a half-day trip, so if yellow-tail is your target I'd go for a full-day trip. Bring lots of sunscreen and sun protection (long sleeve shirt, hat, sunglasses)

Make sure your captain has bait lined up before you arrive. It's gonna take time to fish for the big stuff and there is Nooo reason to pay to bait fish.

We had a great experience on our four-hour trip. The owner (Gary) was very informative and professional. The boat and equipment were all in good condition. Not much action on the day we went but I was able to catch a pretty hefty amber jack. I definitely will be using them again.

We had a great day on the water! The crew is amazing! I wanted to do slow jigging and the captain made his best to bring me to some good spots and the fish were there! We caught some nice groupers and mackerel tuna They cleaned all the fish and gave us the filet well packed and also prepared some fresh sashimi on the way back!

Been to many Costa Rica fishing trips. Many boats many captains. This one is top by far. We got there late and weather was bad. Told the captain what me and may daughters wanted to catch and boom. We will be eating tuna and mahi for weeks. The crew was amazing. The service was great and they know how to find the fish. Was amazing to see them work as a team. Not all crews do that. Super highly recommend

The trip was great overall - Captain Gabriel and Douglas were knowledgeable and helpful. It was my first time fishing and Douglas explained how to do it correctly and they both helped my boyfriend catch a Roosterfish! Although it was stormy, we tried it and did relatively well all things considered. Would recommend again!

Fishing with Capt. Luis and crew mate was excellent. Even in this low season, good varied catch, and was lucky to also see and get close to migrating Humpbacks. Could not have asked for more. Luxurious? No. Great fishing and great, knowledgeable helpful crew? Yup.

Captain Jose is a great host and very knowledgeable fisherman, he’s goes out his way to make sure everyone enjoys the trip. He put on the biggest Mahi I’ve ever caught, even though the fish was slow this time of year we had a great time and experience, can’t wait to come back during the summer months and try again. Thanks Larry & Cris

Captain Pedro and his amazing team worked hard and fished hard all day to make our experience the best it could be. I consider myself an experienced angler and learned new techniques. The Captain Andy crew David and Christian were so much fun to fish with. I highly recommend them and will be fishing with them again when I come back in January

Sierpe-Fishing was an awesome fishing charter. Going into the ocean from the river was a unique experience. We caught 5 tuna’s, 2 wahoo’s, and 1 barracuda. We also got to see several whales while fishing around Cano Island. Thank you Pablo for the great experience. Would definitely recommend this charter..

Amazing trip with all 4 of us catching. Whole crew was incredibly nice, helpful, and Pedro was in contact with us before we even arrived to CR, asking what fish we wanted and all the details of the trip. They keep the boat very clean and organized at all times. Everything they do is very much all about what you want to do. Will definitely book with them again in our future of coming back to CR!!!
