Owner description: Quepos Sailfishing Charters representing the best boats and crews here in Quepos for 12 years for those anglers seeking Both Marlin and Pacific Sailfish are the predominant offshore species with lots of opportunity for Dorado, Wahoo and Yellowfin Tuna are all plentiful in these waters. The offshore fishing is spectacular in the renownedly calm waters of Quepos and Manuel Antonio. Offshore charters usually run 18-23 miles offshore unless the bite is on out at the furuno which is about 31 miles. This is a great tour for families as it is a great day out on the water with the opportunity to see Sea Turtles, Whales and lots of Dolphin.

“memory for a lifetime”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

let me first thank the crew, manuel and joseph-they are AWESOME. the boat was immaculate throughout the trip. lunch preparation was great-but the piece de resistance was when joseph pulled out the wasabi, teriyaki sauce and a plate of chilled yellow tail sashimi tuna we had caught about one hour prior. this was hands down the best fishing experience i've had in 50 years of fishing. one of my sons boated his first sailfish, which made the entire trip unequaled. joseph coached him through he entire thing and manuel kept him spot on the fish. we will be back-next time with all 3 sons.

“Wyoming has amazing time in Manuel Antonio”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

Leanne set up a fantastic trip for the 5 of us from Wyoming. Everything about the Bali house was perfect, better than we could have hoped for. The house was located in the perfect spot for beach and restaurants as well as being absolutely beautiful. Our two fishing trips on the Mad Marlin were amazing. The fishing was slow but Memo and Michael did everything they could to get us on the fish, we did catch some snapper and grouper when the sail fish weren't biting. During our inshore trip James caught a nice 65lb Rooster and the rest of us missed our chances at several but it was a great trip. Memo and Michael took great care of us and I would recommend them to everyone. Sam did a great job of keeping us on schedule for our tours and making sure we had transportation for everything. He also checked in on us to make sure we didn't need anything and was great for just asking about the area. The ADR tour was a unforgettable experience that everyone should try. We had already decided to go back before we ever left Costa Rica and Leanne and Sam will be taking care of us again.

“mad marlin early may”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

Got lucky with a clear day during rainy season. 7 sailfish released. Nice jumps and tail walks. Mentioned to capt and first mate that we wanted some eating fish. On the way in got a radio call that dorado were in an area closeby. When we got there fish were jumping all over the place. We took 15 dorado in 30 minutes. They were biting line and bare hooks. We could have caught many more but we had nore than we could eat. Great day!
