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!

Captain Johnny had us on a 50-inch, 40lb+ roosterfish within an hour of leaving the dock. It just got better from there, with some nice grouper to finish the trip and fill the frying pan. Great day for me and my son, would definitely go back!

I did a full day inshore with Capt. John. The bite was slow for everyone else fishing inshore, and Capt. John stuck it out and kept me on fish. One of the many reasons I came down here was to catch a roosterfish and thanks to John's hardwork and persistence it happened. From start to finish the entire operation was... More

First off, with any fishing tour it's hit or miss. My wife and I were on our honeymoon and decided we wanted to deep sea fish. John, the owner, set us up with the best rate you can find around! On top of that he helped with transportation accommodations at a way cheaper price than I was getting quoted for... More

It's fishing - some days you hit them and some days you don't. We happened to go out on a quiet day. We had two boats with 9 people between them, but only caught three sailfish between them. Our boat was with Mike and his brother, and they were good but we had been hoping for more. One thing we... More

Sorry for the slow day out there, usually we can get into some sailfish in the morning and then spend some time on the reef. The sailfish weren't cooperating the day you guys went out there, but Mike stayed on the sail fishing grounds until you guys could catch some billfish and that's why there wasn't as much reef time....

We booked a full day trip on the Stress Reliever II with Captain John and Alex. It was a great day on the water. We were a group of five and everyone was able to bring in Sailfish with the great instruction and help. We managed to bring in 13 Sailfish for the day which I'm told is amazing for... More

Capt, John and Alex were great. They asked us what I wanted to catch the most and we came up with a plan for the day. The price was right and my wife and I had the time of our lives. We caught 4 huge sailsfish and a tuna which was delicious. They suggested more than one restaraunt to prepare... More

we have gone out with these guys on multiple occasions in multiple seasons with different captains. Same results every time. Solid fishing numbers with crews that are eager to please. I highly recommend them. Jay from Casa de Ventanas, Ojochal, Costa Rica

My wife and I spent our last day in Costa Rica by fishing with Quepos Fish Adventures. We had an awesome experience as I was able to catch my first sailfish and a nice red snapper for supper! Our guide Johnny did an excellent job manning the boat, handing all of the rods, and making us comfortable. I would definitely... More

I have spent way too many days on the water searching for my first respectable Rooster fish and continued to come up empty handed and always finding that I "should have been there yesterday". I spent a few days in Quepos last week fishing and again, no Rooster. As I spent my final day looking over the ocean with a... More

Great service. First day out swells made my youngest son sea sick and we had to return after only an hour on the water. John invited us back the next day at no extra charge and we had a great day drop fishing for snapper and grouper, caught tons of fish. Great customer service!
