Offshore fishing (commonly referred to as deep sea or open water fishing) in Costa Rica is one of the highlights of almost every Costa Rican vacation, most visitors come to Costa Rica simply for the Offshore fishing experience. After all Costa Rica "the rich coast" is not only rich with biodiversity on land, but the mixture of water temperature and currents make Costa Rica some of the best fishing in the world.
Offshore fishing requires a full day commitment as you travel 30 + miles off shore to cast out lines aiming to catch species such as the most wanted marlin and sailfish. All boats that we book for our clients are equipped with the best sonar, GPS and fishing equipment available. Captains and mates are experienced and mostly local Costa Ricans who were born here, and fishing runs in their veins. They know the hot spots and what is biting, and the journey will always be intriguing listening to their many stories of their greatest catches or the most recent fishing tournament.
The excitement really accelerates when a Marlin bites your line, this is when you prepare for the fight of a lifetime, and this is one fight that may last hours. Your mates on board and captain are professional fish fighters and they will ensure you get the picture that every fisherman dreams of having when visiting Costa Rica, a picture in the water with an exhausted Marlin in hand.
Species we catch offshore are Wahoo, Marlin, Amberjack, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Tuna
