American Owner/Captain John will make sure all your needs are met on this 32 foot Ocean Master boat aptly named Stress Reeliever. We fish for all species found in this area, but specialize in Pacific Sailfish and Marlin. We offer all the newest in technology and gear on the boat, and have a complete set of Penn International Reels to get your big fish to the boat! Our electronics include all high end Furuno components, and we have a 2010 Cummins Diesel pushing us out to where the fish are!

The second day offshore with John and Alex I boated 14 sailfish and they were incredible guys to fish with. The 3rd day with Miguel and Joshua... More

We were set up for three full days of fishing. The first day inshore with Johnny gave us plenty of action with tough fighting rooster fish. That was just a warm-up for the next two days offshore with plenty of sail fish action for the five of us. Captain Mike and the mate Jose were terrific. They provided everything that... More

I booked a ten day trip to Queops for six adults. The guys were set up to fish both in shore and off shore. I am sorry that I do not have the crew and boat names on the tip of my tongue but the guys were so impressed! All three caught rooster fish and all caught big sailfish. We... More

Let me start off by giving a little background, I fish weekly and have fished many places all over the world. I cannot say enough great things about Quepos Fish Adventure Charters. From the start, John was quick with email responses not only about fishing, but also gave us great information on cabs, money exchange, places to see, restaurants to... More

John Schuchert took care of us and was very responsive in making the arrangements. We had an awesome day on the water on the Costa Brava -- Alonso and the captain were awesome and helped us catch 10 sailfish. We had older kids and adults and all had a blast. We plan to come back and will definitely fish with... More

My wife and I just returned to Alabama last night from our Honeymoon to Costa Rica. Luckily we booked 3 days of fishing with John S. & the "Quepos Fish Adventure" team 6 months back.

I went to Costa Rica with a goal, to catch a rooster fish and these guys certainly delivered. I was fishing with Johnny and Christian onboard the No Limit as Johnnys usual boat had engine problems. The first day was exceptional we landed 5 nice roosters, a jack crevalle from so many bites I lost count. The second day we... More

I fish a lot w/ charters (roughly 12 days this past year) so I found it unusual when I was asked to pay before departure. First time ever. I thought....well that's strange but whatever. The guy told me it was so he could pay for fuel....which was already on the boat. Anyways....(I realized later it was because no one bothered... More

Dang. Sorry the fishing stunk, usually we do fish all day as fishing requires patience. This particular customer booked pretty last minute and I didn't have anything open so i called around and found him a boat to go out on as all of our stuff was booked, and then he came back in really early. The bite that particular... More

The problem came when we arrived at the dock the morning of the 11th of Feb. we were booked through John at Quepos Fish Adventure on the Thresher. However when we arrived John said he had a cancellation on his boat the Stress... More

These guys actually originally wrote me and asked to fish on my 32 foot Stress Reeliever 1 but since it was booked up, we offered them the Thresher.
