Join us for some awesome Sportfishing in Quepos Costa with Big Eye Charters. We are recommended by many people from professional anglers to the family fishermen. Big Eye Charters is very popular among Sportfishing Charters in Costa Rica. All you have to do is ask around town at the local restaurants and everyone will recommend Big Eye Fishing Charters. With over 25 years of experience, you will get the best. We have an awesome team. Captain Franklin Araya Martinez is at the helm on the Big Eye II. Captain Franklin has been fishing out of Quepos for many years. Our team is first class and loves to be on the water fishing.

Full Day and 3/4 Day Trips

We usually have plenty of sailfish action offshore on the full day trips. It is also very common to catch tuna, mahi mahi and marlin. The full day charter is the best option for the serious anglers. Sailfish action is usually good on the 3/4 day trip with other fish occasionally.

1/2 Day Trips

We target the popular rosterfish on the half day trips. We sometimes catch snapper, mackerel and jacks on these trips. The key to catching rooster fish is finding good live bait. This takes time and patience but the reward can be great.

3 Day Trip

Depart Quepos and fish our way offshore to Drake Bay. Spend two nights at one of the lodges and enjoy one of the most beautiful locations on the Pacific. Fish the second day nearshore and then fish the third day offshore as we travel back to Quepos.

Full Day Offshore

Fish with the fly fishing expert. Captain Franklin has patience, experience and a passion for fly fishing. Watching a big sailfish take your fly and begin his dance is spectacular. We provide fly fishing tackle or you may bring your own.

1/2, 3/4, Full Day

Our captains and mates are family friendly. They speak Spanish and English. Your mate will assist you and your children as much or as little as you want. We have a fighting chair that is very helpful with fighting a big sailfish or marlin. We often see dolphins, sea turtles, frigate birds and sometimes whales. Experience family fishing and fun.


If you are are looking for a Manuel Antonio family fishing charter then you will actually be fishing out of Quepos. Quepos is only 3-4 miles down the mountain. Manuel Antonio is a beautiful town located along the mountainside with a spectacular view. This town is where you will find most tourists. There are plenty of restaurants, shops and entertainment found in this Costa Rica town. We are family friendly and welcome the first time anglers.
