If you are considering a first time visit for Costa Rica sport fishing, then this page is definitely for you and aims to persuade you to try one of our fishing charters – we have several available in different regions. We want your visit to be memorable for all the right reasons because we know that you will be back for more.

Climate, Weather, and Places

With an idyllic tropical climate in place and lots of Pacific coastline stretching from Nicaragua in the north to Panama in the south, Costa Rica can justifiably claim to offer the finest deep sea fishing experience anywhere. The good news is that the season extends throughout the year, which means visitors can decide when to travel to our tropical paradise. Weather plays an important role too, although the Pacific coastal region is the driest part of Costa Rica. Peak season runs from November to April – please see our Costa Rica Fishing Calendar page.

Our Fishing Costa Rica Charters Focus On Three Main Pacific Regions:

• Nicoya Peninsula is bordering with Guanacaste in the North. Our bases are Samara and Nosara.
• The Central Pacific region, with Los Suenos and Jaco as our bases.
• The South Central area – you will find us at the lovely Quepos marina.

Go Catch Some Big Costa Rica Fish

Before we head out, we scan the latest Costa Rica Fishing Reports. When you choose one of our fishing charters, the crew will know exactly where to take you to maximize your Costa Rica fishing experience. You decide whether you want to catch the species typically found offshore, or those preferring the calmer inshore waters. The big boys are the hauntingly beautiful Pacific Sailfish and the incredible Marlin Family (Blue, Black, and Striped). Hook one of these and you will be “otherwise engaged” for quite a while, but no worries our crew are ready to assist. Wahoo, Dorado, Amberjack and lively Yellowfin Tuna will also want to test your angling skills out in the deep blue sea.

Inshore sport fishing in Costa Rica presents opportunities of a different kind, with Roosterfish, Snook, Mackerel, Snapper, Barracuda and Jack Cravalle being the main contenders for your bait before they give you a run for your money.

Here’s How Easy It Is To Book A Fishing Adventure:

• You decide where you would like to base yourself to enjoy your Costa Rica deep-sea fishing.
• You choose 2 (two) dates (this is to avoid disappointment if the first choice date is unavailable).
• You make your fishing charter inquiry through the Offshore Trips Booking Form. We check our Costa Rica Fishing Packages and find a suitable fishing charter boat with availability to match your preferred dates.

• We advise you of the availability, and you decide to go ahead with the booking and pay the charter rental costs.
• We confirm your booking, and now you can make your travel and accommodation arrangements (with our assistance if you like).
• You prepare for the time of your life fishing on your Costa Rica fishing vacation!

Costa Rica Fishing Formalities

Using a fishing charter service like the one run by Offshore Trips makes your fishing vacationing in Costa Rica much simpler. However, there are certain formalities attached. Fishing licenses are required ahead of your planned fishing excursion and this we can assist with once we have received the booking information. Arriving without a prior booking and expecting to find a fishing charter is a bit like waiting for an empty taxi on a busy day!
