Three of us met up in Quepos to do a few days offshore and one day of inshore fishing. Boats and crews (we had different boats for offshore and inshore) were excellent and highly experienced. They worked hard to find fish, get them biting and then to the boat. Sam in the office did a good job of putting it all together and I highly recommend using him to help plan your trip to Quepos.

Diego took care of everything. Olando and the boat crew best ever. Four of us caught 5 Sail Fish, 1 Marlin and 4 Tuna in two days. Highest recommendation !!!!!!!!!!!!

We had a fantastic day of offshore fishing on the "Front Row". We hooked up on 9 sailfish and landed 7! The captain and both mates were very friendly, spoke English, and most importantly knew how to catch and land the fish. The booking agent Sam Merkin was great to deal with. We told him what we expected and he did his best to provide it for us. He gets a great big "thumbs up" from us. If you are looking to book a great fishing trip, feel confident in booking thru this company. We plan to go back again sometime and will definitely book thru Sam again.

Headed offshore on the 28 Bertram "Front Row" for a full day charter. I have a lot of offshore experience, so my expectations were fairly high. Boat was fully prepped with everything we needed (water, fruit, snacks, beer, sandwiches) and ready to go. Crew was very accommodating. The day started off a bit slow but by around noon the captain found us the fish and we had a monster day. Boated 6 sailfish and a huge blue marlin. The crew was VERY experienced and thanks to the excellent driving by the captain and leader work by the mate, we didn't lose 1 fish. The mate was able to hook the marlin using a pitch bait, no easy task. We were even able to get my girlfriend, who has no experience, to reel in a couple of sails with help from the crew who were again very accommodating. Sam is great to work with to book the trip and also knows the area well, providing great local recommendations. I highly recommend this outfit. Boats are all kept on the dock at the marina which makes boarding and departing easy (other companies keep their boats on moorings). Even if we hadn't had our luck, the crew never stopped working to find us the bite. Great day, amazing experience.

They gave me the trip I was looking for. I charter often and while in Costa Rica this year our two nieces were nearby and they enjoy fishing. So I contacted Samuel at Quepos Fishing. He listened to what I was looking for and had us arranged with the Wahoo for a 1/2 day inshore. Captain was excellent and after having us help catch sardines with rod & reel we were soon fishing. Caught several nice fish including jack crevelle, rooster fish and 20#+ snook!!! Also saw two whales, dolphins, schools of fish. Excellent trip
