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!

Booked a 1/2 day near shore fishing trip through John. He was very accommodating on the booking and provided a detailed summary of needed information for fishing and some other recommendations for activities in Quepos. Unfortunately, our fishing outing was a bit disappointing. Attempted to catch sardines for bait during the first 1.5 hours with no luck. Used other bait... More

Half day trips are tricky. There is usually a really good bite, that lasts about 2 or 3 hours. Sometimes that bite is in the morning and sometimes that bite is in the afternoon. Sometimes when you go a half day you miss the bite. From December to April, sardines are the best bait to use inshore, for the rest... More

This was our first time chartering a fishing trip in Costa Rica. I contacted John in early January and booked our trip on The Cowboy for the end of January. We went on a full day offshore trip and it was incredible. Captain Gerry and First Mate Edwardo were very professional, courteous and very welcoming. The boat was spotless, bait... More

Had a great day fishing on January 25, 2017 landing two nice sailfish. The boat is very well maintained and the crew worked hard to create a superb fishing experience for us.

Quepos Fish Adventures is the best group of boats, captains, and first mates in Quepos/Manuel Antonio! We booked 2 full days of fishing - 1 inshore, and 1 offshore day. Both days we caught fish because we had amazing crews. Captain Junior and first mate Pepe were truly professional fisherman and put us on the Sailfish. We had an awesome... More

We fished with Quepos Fish Adventure January 25th, 2017 for a full-day in-shore with Capt. Johnny. Johnny took us around to catch bait and and on my first cast I landed a Rooster fish, which was what we came for. The view was beautiful from the boat getting to see the mountains and beaches from a different view. Charter supplied... More

These guys are great! No hassle whatsoever. I arranged the trip with John about a month before our arrival, and the day we spent on the water with Junior and Pepe was magical. Both spoke very good English. We landed two Sail, three Yellow Fin, and a 60 pound Dorado. We even ran into a school of feeding Porpoise that... More

Did my homework and found these guys were top quality guides/boats and by far provided the cheapest deals. John was excellent to deal with and provided lots of info which helped us with booking our whole 2 week tour of Costa Rica. Me and the other half booked a full day inshore and a full day offshore trip. First we... More

I had long dreamed of coming to Costa Rica for fishing, and finally, this week, my dream came true in a BIG way! I arranged with John back in September, and we decided that, with my budget as a solo traveler, and my personal interests, that I would go with Alex on the Mucho Fisho 2, and it was a... More
