Our Charters & Rates

Drake Bay is located in one of the most beautiful, unspoiled places on earth, the southern Pacific coast of Costa Rica near Corcovado National Park. Because of its proximity to the famous Furuno Banks, Caño Island reef and numerous river mouths we offer our clients many fishing options with our sport fishing charter trips in Drake Bay, CR. The surrounding waters here are generally very calm, the water can even have a “glassy” appearance at times. Because of our location, our clients have a wide variety of species to choose from. Where and what we catch is also dependent on the season, weather patterns, tides and phase of the moon, but generally we offer four “types” of fishing opportunities.  It may be possible to do a “combination trip” on a full day charter. If you are staying on the southern end of the Osa Peninsula near Puerto Jimenez, Matapalo or Golfito, we have several captains we have partnered with. We can offer half day, full day and even overnight FAD trips for Marlin. The boats available range from 24-45 feet. Fish Drake Bay will handle the reservations and payment for your charter.

As you can see, this is not your “average fishing trip”. The key is to communicate with your captain about the type(s) of fishing you desire. Captain Willy will be able to guide you on what the best options for your trip are, given the conditions and season.
