American Owner/Captain John will make sure all your needs are met on this 32 foot Ocean Master boat aptly named Stress Reeliever. We fish for all species found in this area, but specialize in Pacific Sailfish and Marlin. We offer all the newest in technology and gear on the boat, and have a complete set of Penn International Reels to get your big fish to the boat! Our electronics include all high end Furuno components, and we have a 2010 Cummins Diesel pushing us out to where the fish are!

First of all, when it comes to correspondence, John is amazing at providing info for what you need and responds to emails quickly. When we arrived at the marina (4/22/17) there was a huge sailfishing tournament going on. People from all over the world were here to fish and they were reporting that the sailfish bite was incredibly slow. We... More

So glad you guys had fun. It was a slow week for sailfish, usually those dolphins you guys saw have YellowFin Tuna in them and that makes up for the slow sailfish bite, but it sounds like Alex was trying all the tricks with you and could only land the sail. Glad you had fun, and we always keep the... More

Booking with John via email is so easy. Don't hesitate to contact him. He responds quickly and will tell you anything you need to know. 1st day offshore with Junior and Pepe: Junior has a keen eye and a quick hand. It seemed as if we were a step ahead of the other boats when trying to get bait and... More

So glad you guys had fun, that big roosterfish and Marlin you guys caught should be up on facebook and instagram soon, I'm thinking the rooster will get about 1500 likes at least as that picture turned out AWESOME! Love to have you guys back out anytime at all! More

John met us at the dock both days to make sure we were prepared and got off to a good start. He is the kind of person you could easily call "friend"! We fished inshore with Antonio and David on day 1 then offshore with Alex on day 2. There is no doubt at all that the number one priority... More

It was about 4 months in advance before our trip when I started to contact Capt John (Owner of Quepos Fish Adventure) He promptly replied to EVERY single one of my email thoroughly, and never once lose his cool even with my 50 emails back & forth. That's top notch customer service for you right there. We were referred to... More

We went out on 4/5. We had a great trip. We were on the Stress Reliever II for a full day. I am a avid saltwater fisherman, and can tell you this crew is top notch. We were met on time, the crew asked what we were looking to catch. We were recommended to run about 1 1/2 hours to... More

What a fantastic day . Out of the dock 5 minutes earlier than scheduled to depart. We had rods in the water in 12 minutes. We visited several spots until we found the right one. We both caught beautiful rooster fish which was a first for both of us. Johnny was so helpful and obviously knew where to find some... More

Had an awesome day fishing with junior and Pepe. Caught 1 mahi, 1 huge sail, and 5 tuna! It was a great time and for the price you really can't beat it! Fishing was good,lunch was good, company was great to make arrangements with. Just an all around great experience.

We have fished multiple trips to Costa Rica and we know how fishing can be. We were met each at the pier each morning and were quickly on board. Day one offshore was slow, but Junior and Pepe worked their tails off trying to get us on fish. Day two was much better with us ending the day after catching... More
