Sportfishing in Costa Rica
Sportfishing in Costa Rica on the WaveDancer means you will be sailing aboard one of the most comfortable boats you will find in the country. It can sleep 6 in two staterooms and the air conditioned salon, which also has TV, VCR and stereo. Sportfishing in Costa Rica on WaveDancer works out of Quepos and Playa Hermosa (near Jaco) and Flamingo in the winter months
The Captain of the Wave dancer
In 1999, Captain Jesse Baletti made Costa Rica sportfishing news when he hooked the biggest blue marlin of the year — a 1,200 pound monster that fought for six and a half hours on 50-pound test. Hooked at 33 miles offshore, this monster marlin was released 12 miles from the Quepos dock. Sportfishing Costa Rica means catching dorado, snapper and snook that, unlike the Rooster, are great on a plate.
In 2004, he again made sportfishing Costa Rica headlines after landing one of the largest black marlins of the year, an estimated 1,467 pounds (see Black Marlin). And in 2005, he has been bringing in 10-12 sailfish a day
A Day of Deep Sea Angling
Your day of angling off Costa Rica on board the WaveDancer begins around 7:30 AM. A full day on the water sees you returning to the dock before sundown, depending on conditions (some days you fill up the ice boxes faster than on other days!). The dock is convenient to all local hotels, resorts and tourism services.
