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!

My wife and I had a great time off-shore on the No Limit with Eduardo and Jose, catching two really nice sails. John was super accomodative and easy to coordinate booking. I intend to fish with them again next time I'm in Quepos.

We were there last week and fished three-days. The dorado (mahi mahi) and tuna bite is really hot right now. We also went 4/5 with sailfish and got a blue marlin. Rained a little at night, but most of the days were sunny.
