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!

We were supposed to do a split charter but the other group didn't commit so Capt. John gave us a super deal to go without them. We have done many charters and you can tell when the captain and mate know what they are doing. They were solid professionals who know how to treat the customers. They put us on... More

Best money I have ever spent ! My family of 5 went out all day offshore fishing . We caught 4 sailfish and really enjoyed our day. Kids first deep sea fishing and they caught sailfish. It's going to be hard to ever top that ! Plenty of soda, water, and beer to keep everyone happy. Great sandwiches and chips... More

We paid $350 for a half day fishing excursion for 5 people. The captain was excellent and tried his hardest to get fish. The boat was modern and food and drinks were included. I haven't been on a better fishing charter. You will ne so hapy you picked this company.

I read all the reviews and see that John and his crew catch lots of fish. I'm from Florida and have two boats and fish all the time. I'm usually very wary of charters because of the business aspect of the industry. So I booked a half day inshore charter hoping to catch rooster fish and maybe some snook. I... More

When somebody asks for snook, the only bait they will eat are sardines and sardines can only be caught during the day and do not live overnight in live wells. The snook season is from December to April, but for some reason we did get a rush of snook in June. We are still seeing snook, but not on every... More

Fished with John last week. 1st class operation. They catch fish. Very easy to work with and excellent communication when booking the trip. The crew on the boat did an excellent job. We caught some nice fish, sailfish, yellow fin tuna in particular. John and the mate Miguel fished hard the whole time. I wouldn't hesitate to book again and... More

Had an amazing day with John and Mike. Caught a Sailfish and had a 200lb Marlin on the line. Then the last hour and a half, we went and caught some Grouper and Tuna for dinner. Can't wait to come back.

I fished 5 days with Johnny. During that time we caught several rooster fish with the largest near 20 lbs. I lost one over 25lbs. We also caught the delicious snappers--nearly 20 overall. I consider the trip to have been highly successful!! Johnny is a great captain and guide.

Had a great trip with Johnny. Caught a bunch of snook and a few jacks. Boat was clean, gear was good, and Johnny knew where the fish were. Will be going back for sure!

We fished inshore with Capt Johnny on the Mucho Fisho 1 last month on a half day afternoon. We had an absolute blast! I work in the saltwater fishing industry in the US and was extremely happy with our experience with Quepos Fishing Adventures! Capt Johnny was extremely personable and spoke very good English! We caught Spanish mackerel, houndfish, massive... More
