    • Towel
    • Polarized Sunglasses
    • Rain Jacket
    • Sunblock
    • Camera
    • Hat or Visor for Sun Protection
    • Motion Sickness Pills (Take one night before your trip and one the morning of).
  • Is food provided?

    Food and drink are supplied by the crew. We supply Imperial beer, bottled water, sandwiches or a hot lunch, and snacks.

  • Do I need a fishing license?

    You will need to purchase an individual fishing license (sorry, Costa Rica Policy). They are available the morning of your fishing trip at the marina for $15 and are good for 8 days.

  • Can I keep the fish I catch?

    All billfish in Costa Rica are catch and release, but we gladly harvest enough meat fish for your dining needs here in Costa Rica. There are many restaurants that will gladly cook your catch for you. We will clean and bag your catch with us, and will supply ice for their transport.

  • Can I mount my trophy fish?

    We do all replica fish mounts through Grays Taxidermy. No need to kill the fish, just a detailed measurement and a replica mount is made that will last a lifetime!

    No room on the wall? We tag all of our billfish if possible, using grays fish tags. You name your fish and Grays Taxidermy lets you know when and where your fish is recaptured! This helps aid science and is always fun to see your fish reappear.
