Costa Rica’s angling scene is something that needs to be experienced to be believed. The country’s glassy blue waters are home to over 200 different IGFA records, with 22 for Billfish alone. The tropical rainforests inland give way to stunning beaches, which look out onto some truly productive hunting grounds. Hop aboard a Costa Rica fishing charter, and you could explore them all!
 
Some of the most sought-after inshore creatures live close to land in Costa Rica. On the Pacific coast, you’ll find Snook, Jacks, and the exotic Roosterfish, with Tarpon available in the Caribbean. Hit the reefs and a who’s who of dazzling fish awaits! On both sides of the country, you can go after Groupers and Snappers, with Barracuda and Mackerel available in the east.
 
However, the real prizes come offshore. Billfish is the name of the game for any serious angler in Costa Rica. While Blue Marlin can be caught on either side, the Pacific is where you’ll find Blue, Black, and Striped Marlin – along with Sailfish! Come and test your strength against these beasts, and you may even land yourself a tasty Tuna, Mahi Mahi, or Wahoo too. 
 
Inshore and reef fishing trips can last as little as four hours, giving beginners a great introduction to fishing. More experienced anglers can spend a full day on the water, and that’s required for offshore trips, where you can even spend multiple days at sea! Costa Rica fishing charters that suit all ages and abilities are available along both coasts, with Los Sueños, Jacó, and Quepos popular on the Pacific, and Limón on the Caribbean side.

 

Reglas & Regulaciones

Every angler on a Costa Rica fishing charter will need a valid fishing license, and you can get yours online from INCOPESCA. Other than that, the only important rule you should know is that all Billfish and Roosterfish must be released.

Enero

This is a great time to target Sailfish in the south of Costa Rica. Up north, rough seas and high winds can make getting offshore difficult. There are plenty of Snook and Roosterfish around, though.

Febrero

Comb the river mouths for monster Snook and Roosterfish. Offshore, calm seas and low rainfall make for amazing angling in the south, where double-digit Billfish releases are commonplace.

Marzo

March is a great time for loads of big game species. Tuna, Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi: they’re all waiting offshore. You may need a long run to reach the best spots in the north, though.

Abril

The Offshore World Championships kick off in Quepos, with teams competing from around the world in what has come to be known as “The Superbowl of Sportfishing”. Book early to get your spot!

Mayo

May is a month of change in Costa Rica. The wind drops off in the north, meaning much better Billfishing. In the East, this is a great time to try the amazing Tarpon fishing Costa Rica has to offer.

Junio

High humidity can sap your strength this time of year, making big game battles even tougher. That just means every catch is even more rewarding, though! Snook and Roosterfish are on fire inshore.

Julio

Launch out of Tamarindo or Playa Flamingo, and you could land Blue, Black, and Striped Marlin all in one day. That’s if the Sailfish don’t eat all your bait, as they’re around in force in July.

Agosto

If you somehow get bored of double-digit Sailfish hookups and record-breaking Snook, head to the local reefs to battle monster bottom fish. Cubera Snapper are as fierce as any sportfish!

Septiembre

Temperatures can hit 90 during the middle of the day, and heavy rains can kill the offshore bite. Fish inshore for Jacks, Roosterfish, and Snook instead, or hit the reefs for Snapper and Grouper.

Octubre

This is the wettest month of the year. Some captains take their own vacation in October, as the offshore bite is far from its best. It’s still miles better than most places are in their prime, though.

Noviembre

The rains ease off and both coasts enjoys consistently good fishing in November. Spend the day battling Marlin and Sailfish, and catch some tasty Tuna for dinner. It sure beats turkey!

Diciembre

If the thought of a white Christmas gets you down, head to Costa Rica’s beautiful coast to enjoy sunny skies, warm weather, and awesome angling. Nothing kick-starts seasonal cheer like epic Billfishing!

Jose told us that off shore fishing in this area at this time was not the best. At first trolling we did not catch much. But when we started drop shotting, it was one fish after another!

Feb. is not the best fishing month. Never the less we caught 3 nice mahi mahi .But just as exciting for the women aboard were the hundreds of dolphins & jumping stingrays , with many turtles & flying fish. All in all it was a great time.

Live bait for rooster is definitely the best, especially if you're looking for a big one ! Once done, move to popping and jigging around the rocks... soooo good !!

Remember that it's called "fishing" and not "catching" for a reason. Some days the fish just aren't there. Understand which months are best for the type of fish you're hoping to catch. If you've got specific questions, contact the respective charter contact for details. All of them seemed very willing to assist and answer any questions.

The trip was great. You start out by catching your bait (Which is how all charters are). Then stay close to shore a mile or 2 trolling with the live bait. The rooster fish were biting on the day we went out. Pound for pound they are the toughest fighting fish I've caught. There was plenty of food and cold drinks and the food taste great.

Went offshore for Mahi Mahi and Captain Oscar and he did not disappoint. We hooked a total of 5 Mahi and landed 3. The captain and mate filleted all of our fish to take home with us. I recommend Captain Oscar, he will put you on the fish for a fraction of what the big boats in Quepos charge you. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We had an AMAZING trip with Captain Jorge and Carlos! We caught several tuna and mahi, and they provided us with plenty of beer and some of the BEST pineapple we’ve ever eaten in the downtime. We saw dolphins that swam with the boat, sting rays jumping, and even a sea turtle. Everything was above and beyond and they really made our trip perfect. Thank you guys!!!

Captain Oscar and Eric were great to spend the day with. We didn’t put any fish in the boat but it wasn’t from not trying. Plenty of bites from Mahi Mahi, and Swordfish! Had one big Mahi Mahi on but broke the line. I would recommend Captain Oscar, he tried right till the end to get a fish in the boat! Might have actually went over our scheduled time. I will book again with him in the future.

Captian Noah and Darcy were very friendly. They both spoke English well enough to have good conversations. They were very experienced in fishing. They gave us options on trolling or bottom fishing. We chose trolling we the best experience we caught Mahi Mahi, and over a 200lb Marlin. The weather was perfect. Noah cleaned our Mahi Mahi for us. We would highly recommend them.

A totally first rate experience. We are a fishing family and I was looking for something for my sons 14th birthday. I did a lot of research and Sea Breeze came out as the best in Costa Rica. They certainly lived up to that reputation. Noah and Darcy were outstanding. They got us onto great fish and we had a brilliant day out. They work very well as a team and constantly looked after us. Highly recommended. Wonderful experience.
