Fish Drake Bay
Escape the crowds, marinas and high priced fishing lodges and come fish with the #1 rated tour on Trip Advisor in beautiful Drake Bay. We are located 50 miles south of Manuel Antonio on the northern end of the world famous Corcovado National Park on the Osa peninsula. You won’t find any large hotels, condos or casinos here, just rainforest and wildlife. Because of our remote location, we have no fishing pressure here.
We have two boats to choose from to accommodate all budgets. The Reel Escape is a 35-foot luxury sportfishing yacht featuring air-conditioning, galley, salon and a full-size bathroom. The Reel Time is a 26-foot walk-around center console. She features a clean burning 250 hp Yamaha 4-stroke engine.
We have an incredibly beautiful and diverse fishery right in our backyard. The unspoiled shoreline, numerous river mouths and rocky outcroppings offer the inshore angler tons of places to cast for roosterfish, snapper, mackerel and jacks.
Just 12 miles from Drake is Caño Island with its massive reef system. The reef has great bottom fishing for big cubera snapper, grouper, amberjack and pompano. We also troll around the island for tuna, mahi and wahoo.
The offshore bite can be nothing short of amazing. Our crystal clear blue water holds big pelagic fish such as Pacific sailfish, blue and black marlin, big mahi and yellowfin tuna. As an added bonus, we often see mega-pods of spinner dolphins. The pods hold thousands of dolphins leaping and spinning. Both our boats feature Coast Guard-approved safety equipment, emergency beacons and satellite phone.
The captain of Fish Drake Bay is Willy Atencio who has over 20 years of professional experience and is considered one of the best captains in Costa Rica. Willy is a native of Drake Bay and has fished big game tournaments in the United States and Bahamas. He has fished in the Offshore World Championships for six consecutive years.
We welcome all clients on our boats, where our two full-time professional mates will take care of all your needs while on board. We offer both half-day and full-day trips. Full-day trips include a full homemade lunch by Willy’s wife, who is a professional chef.
Fish that you may want to keep will be expertly filleted and packed in ice. All the lodges and restaurants in the area will prepare your fresh catch. We practice catch and release for all billfish and roosterfish so future generations can enjoy this incredible sport.
