Where We Go and What We Chase?

Full Day:

On our full day offshore charters, you’ll chase the runs of big Blue and Black Marlin, as well as Sailfish, which range from 20 to 40 miles out. On the way, we look for the huge schools of spinners Dolphin to find the big Yellow Fin Tuna and Dorado (Mahi-Mahi).

Half Day:

Our half-day or full day inshore charters are closer in, where you can troll around Caño Island for Wahoo, or jig on the rock mounts for Cubera SnappersAmberjacks, and Grouper. There are also half-days charters for in-shore trolling, casting surface plugs or live bait for Roosterfish, Sierra or Spanish Mackerel, and Snapper.

So, whether half-day or full-day, you’ll often be in the company of several different species dolphins, sea turtles, rays, flying fish, and during seasonal migrations – majestic humpback whales.

Our Philosophy

The Osa is our home and these waters are special to us all. With Caño Island just 12 nautical miles off Drake Bay and to the south, the spectacular cobalt blue waters of the coast of Corcovado National Park, there is relatively little fishing pressure in these areas, and we’re keen to keep it that way.

Our philosophy is simple-eat what you catch or let it go.

We are the first charter operation on the Osa to commit to catch and release using circle hooks. On the flip side, hand-off your catch to Koco and his team and you and your party will be feasting like King Neptune come dinnertime.
