Costa Rica Saltwater Big Game Fishing
COSTA RICA offers some of the best offshore, big game saltwater sportfishing in the world. Get ready for the ultimate test in landing any of the species we catch which are the mighty Blue, Black and Striped Marlins averaging 300-400 lbs. and occasionally running up to 800 lbs., Pacific Sailfish averaging 100 lbs. each, Yellowfin Tuna from 30-130 lbs., Dolphinfish (Dorado/Mahi Mahi) ranging from 15-75 lbs., as well as Big Eye Tuna and Wahoo!
Inshore, around the rocks, you’ll experience hooking Black Marlin, Sailfish, Grouper, Snapper (Giant Cubera Snapper weighing up to 85 lbs. or the 4 or 5 smaller species including Red Snapper). Everyone loves tackling the infamous Roosterfish, a variety of Jacks (including the HUGE Amberjacks up to 125 lbs.), multiple species of Shark, Pargo Snapper, and Rainbow Runners up to 25 lbs. There is a plethora of fish in these waters!
ALL TACKLE IS INCLUDED, with everything you need to reel in the “big boys”, but feel free to bring your favorite equipment such as medium action spinning gear to assist in bait casting, etc. A packing list can be provided for your convenience upon booking and is very similar to our Amazon Peacock Bass Adventures. Laundry services are provided at the resorts for a fee. Both resorts have drinkable water and no electrical converters are neccessary.
We offer calm-water fishing within the winter and summer months, steering clear of the rain and those northern winds that tend to blow, which is most often in September, October, and November.
