We went out 04/03/2016 for a full day off shore . It was the best fishing trip on a charter boat that I have ever experienced. I have fished in the Pacific as well as the Gulf of Mexico, it was by far the most fun and the best crew. It is my new bill fishing destination. My wife normally... More

First mate Jason (?) and Captain Rocco, hardest working people we have met. We are a family of 5, kids 14, 13 and 6 who enjoy fishing. It was a blast watching our kids catch sailfish for the first time. Crew were very experienced and knowledgeable. It was an amazing fishing experience for all of us.

Pez Espada Sports fishing was a great experience. For someone who had never been sports fishing before, the crew on board made me feel like a professional. After arriving at the marina and finding the boat, we soon ventured out into the waters. The captain navigated us about 20 minutes out, where we proceeded to bait the lines with smaller... More

On February 6, 2015 I went out fishing with some friends on the Pez Espada in Quepos/Manuel Antonio Costa Rica. We did a variety of fishing. We started buy catching a few Groupers, Bunny fish, and Mango fish. Then we began trolling for sailfish. We caught 3 sailfish and a Bonita. On the way back to the Marina the Captain... More

We went with the Pez because the boat we usually ue was having mechanical problems. The Pez is a decent boat but expensive compared to the other boats in the area. We caught 8 fair sized Maui in the morning and trolled for sails in the afternoon with no fish. They used only dead ballyhoo for boat and made no... More

so sorry to hear that your charter did not meet your expatiations. We certainly cant guaranty that all of our clients will catch certain fish but our crew does have a great reputation, years of experience and most usually can get them on something. Boat size, engines, fuel cost, amenities, and pricing from the other charter companies are all taken... More

I took a trip with Pez Espada on March 31, 2014 with my dad and my boyfriend. We had such an amazing time! On the way out to sea, we saw dolphins and sea turtles; it was gorgeous!

We manage Villa Punto de Vista in Manuel Antonio and we wanted to be sure our clients were getting the best sport fishing experience possible. Pez Espada did not disappoint! The boat was very nice, the fighting chair and all equipment was well kept and the crew was EXCEPTIONALLY organized! We even hooked up on multiple sail fish at once... More
