  • We had a great time going out for a full day with Quepos Fishing, set up through Sam Merkin. The boat was in great shape and cleaner than ours at home. The crew we went out with - Jose and Fausto - were friendly and fun and knew exactly what they were doing. They made sure we got some good catches and had a good time and we were super comfortable spending the day with them. Great spot if you're looking to fish in Quepos!
  • Absolutely awesome experience! We booked the 38 ft Luhrs for a full day charter. The crew was very nice, very helpful and very professional from start to finish! Helping my wife and I land 4 huge sailfish within just a couple hours after missing a couple others and seeing at least 40-50 of them on the surface. The captain put the baits right over them but I guess only 4 of them were hungry today. Not the crews fault at all. We had a blast and will be back!! I contacted and booked through Sam. Very nice and very fast to respond! I highly recommend this company and this boat!!
  • Awesome trip with Jose and Kenneth aboard Fandango. Caught a Blue Marlin! Great boat. Professional crew. Priceless!
  • If you are looking to book a Fishing Trip in Quepos, I highly recommend Sam, at Queposfishing, I guarantee he will get you "hooked up". As my family was preparing for my latest trip to Costa Rica, we were lucky enough to contact Sam to book a charter aboard the "Monkey Shine". In addition to my book , having 11 total people in my party, he was also able to book my brother's family on the Moon Walker the same days. We do a lot of fishing, Ive taken many charter boats, but as my wife said yesterday this was the best day ever, the boat the Sam arranged was incredible. Attention to detail is critical when fishing, the mates never left anything to chance, diligently checking lines and ensuring all baits were not only in pristine shape but also set properly. Fishing, of course, is a lot of luck, but sometimes you make your own luck and the top notch Captain, Crew, Boat, Bait and Gear no doubt assisted in that luck, landing 6 sailfish while other boats had a slow grind that day. After dealing with the "other company's" Quepos boats that broke down while backing down on a marlin (at the start of the day 930am we had to have another boat come to our rescue), Captains that went swimming to untangle their prop from commercial fishing lines they ran over, and boats that bellowed out diesel fumes all day while we baked in the sun Sam booking us on the Monkey Shine was just what the doctor ordered. During the day, my wife turned to me and asked, "Where has this boat been all my life". If you are looking for a trip of a lifetime, do yourself a favor, contact Sam at queposfishing. If the "Monkey Shine" is available ask Sam to get you on that boat, they are phenomenal, if they are booked never fear Sam will get you to where the action is on another one of his boats.
  • My boyfriend, Larry Ray wanted me to help him do a review for an amazing guy in Quepos ,Costa Rica.
