Coastal & Deep-Sea

Fishing off the Osa is brilliant – a truly amazing experience that you’ll never forget.

The Osa is where you want to fish and Águila de Osa captains are who you want taking you out. We’ve been fishing these waters for more than 20 years, and over that time Águila’s captains have set four IGFA world fishing records. We’re passionate about this sport and even more passionate about making sure you have an exceptional Costa Rica fishing experience with us.

Where We Go and What We Chase?

Full Day:

On our full day charters, you’ll chase the runs of big Blue and Black Marlin, as well as Sailfish, which range from 20 to 60 miles out. On the way, we look for the huge schools of spinner Dolphin to find the big Yellow Fin tuna and Dorado (Mahi-mahi).

Half Day:

Our half-day charters are closer in, where you can troll around Caño Island for Wahoo, or jig on the rock mounts for Cubera Snappers, Amberjacks, and Grouper. There are also half-day 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 dolphins, sea turtles, rays, flying fish, and during seasonal migration —majestic humpback whales.

Our Philosophy

The Osa is our home and these waters are special to us all. With Caño Island is just 12 miles off Drake Bay, and to the south, the spectacular cobalt blue waters off 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 operations on the Osa to commit to catch and release using circle hooks. On the flip side, hand-off your catch to chef Dixon and you and your party will be feasting like King Neptune come dinnertime.
