Quepos Fishing Split Charters
Are you looking to cut costs by sharing a Quepos Fishing charter boat? From time to time, we get asked whether guests can split a charter with someone else. We try our best to accommodate such requests so we can hopefully get everyone out fishing. Splitting a fishing boat charter in either Manuel Antonio or Quepos, Costa Rica can be hard work — it isn’t easy to find other people looking for your exact fishing dates, for both offshore and inshore.
Opportunities to Split a Quepos Fishing Charter
If you’re interested in splitting a charter, please fill out the form below. We’ll put your information in our Split Fishing Calendar Database, and if we find a match, we’ll notify you immediately by email or phone.
Payments for split charters are handled via PayPal, or through a 50% deposit on a Master Card or Visa credit card. Sorry, but this is required to secure the split, because most opportunities come in at the last minute. If we’re unable to find a split for your requested charter date, we’ll refund your deposit or find some way of working it out! If there is any way to get you out on these beautiful Costa Rican fishing waters, we try hard to make that happen for you!
If you have to cancel your side of the split, we refund your deposit in full with no questions asked if you cancel at least 14 days prior to departure (so we can still find another party to split the charter). Cancellations after this time are allowed, but the deposit is forfeited — this policy ensures one party can still enjoy their day of Quepos fishing, even if the other party can’t make it for some reason.
Split Charter Enquiry
Some anglers arrive in Costa Rica and find themselves looking for a fishing trip to share with others. Most avid anglers book the Costa Rica offshore or inshore fishing trips well in advance for their groups, giving themselves the best opportunity at the top Costa Rica fishing boat and crew. Some anglers find that they would like to try fishing for sailfish and marlin offshore or possibly fishing inshore for giant Roosterfish, Red Snapper or big Snook in the rivers close by. This can be a daunting task and there are advantages and disadvantages. Here is why;
- Firstly, finding a person or persons to go fishing with you on the exact date and also whether they wish to go inshore, offshore, full day, half day can make it frustrating and like playing match.com in the fishing industry. But if you are on a tight budget and don’t mind fishing with someone you don’t know then it can be a plus. What always seems to be a problem with split charter fishing is that, say you are now 4-6-8 anglers, the odds of each angler goes down. Big question everyone is thinking who gets the 1st fish? Say it a pretty good day out on the water raised 8 sailfish only hook 6 of them and then only land 4 out of the 6 what about the other anglers that didn’t get to catch a fish? For me, I want the best chance I can get.
- Secondly, for this reason, loading up a boat with lots of anglers is making my chances of catching my 1st Costa Rica sailfish or marlin go way down. Yes, it’s beautiful out on the water you see dolphins, whales, and giant sea turtles, but for me personally, it’s just an expensive boat ride. It can pay off for many of the anglers who choose to split a charter – many have had good luck but others, not so much. Probably the best way to increase your chances of catching a beautiful sailfish or marlin is to make sure you are on a top Quepos fishing charter boat with an experienced crew. Your chances increase many fold when you have the right boat with good up-to-date equipment and a bilingual crew who knows how to find and catch fish. If you are a last minute fisherman and have never been deep sea fishing before, we can still get you out on the water in Costa Rica for the fishing trip of a life time.
