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 fished with Capt. Johnny on one of the toughest days I have seen. I am a licensed 100T Captain and have been in the charter game for over 15 years. Capt. Johnny took us out on a day I would have cancelled and worked his tail off. He never stopped trying untill my Wife caught her 1st ever roosterfish.... More

From the very start John kept excellent communication and did everything he could to make our off shore trip an amazing experience, and it definitely was. We went out with capt. Junior and Pepe, they both worked hard to put us in the fish and this resulted in my first sailfish. Excellent crew, brilliant operation don't hesitate to go out... More

Not even close. First day of fishing, there was a light rain going on at 6am. It was over by 7, but he called at 6am so upset saying he did not for any reason want to get wet, and I promised him no rain. I did tell him it wasn't going to rain while we fished, and it didn't.... More

Spent three days, in mid-October, fishing for bill fish on the Stress Reliever II with Capt. Junior. We had a great time raising seven sails and boating five of them. The tackle was top notch, the crews experienced and personable. The boat was in great shape and big enough to handle some of the rough weather we encountered. It was... More

We fished offshore in October with Captain John and Mike. The weather was not the best with lots of rain and thunderstorms, but the crew made our day enjoyable and productive. We caught a nice sail and a yellow fin about 50 pounds. It is clear to me, and I have over 60 years of offshore fishing experience, that John... More

Overall the day was a success. Captain John put us on the fish, and Mike made sure we brought them on board. The only complaint I have, is how sore I was the next day from bringing in all those fish. This was a great trip and I highly recommend Quepos Fish Adventure Private Day Charters.

We had a great time fishing with Captain John and deckhand Mike. They both went the extra mail to make sure we had an unforgettable time. I can't wait to go back..

Second year in a row with Capt John and Mike...second year in a row we've eaten fresh fish for 3 hrs straight!!!! Did an all day trip out of Quepos. Started out very slow....we actually told Capt John we wouldn't get our feelings hurt if he headed in. That would've been a HUGE MISTAKE!!! He encouraged us to hang in... More

Had a group of 8 people, we went out on 2 boats. The captain immediately put us on a school of Tuna & we loaded up the boat! The other boat caught a big sail & then came to our location & they also filled the boat with Tuna. Couldn't wish for a better day fishing! Thanks John & Alex,... More

Went on a 1/2 day and a full day trip and the experience was life changing. Both captains were friendly, helping, and when I say they put us on the fish I mean that not a moment went by where we were not catching fish. I will definitely be back fishing with this company when we return to Costa Rica!
