We did a half day charter and it was non stop action the entire time. We caught two Yellowfin Tuna, a Wahoo, some Bonito for bait, Red Snapper and... More

I went fishing on the Reel Escape on Jan 24th. From the moment you are picked up to be taken to the boat, to the moment you get back the impression is that you are in the hands of pro's that love what they do. The boat is in like new condition, and the fishing equipment is top of the... More

I fished aboard the Reel Escape for two days in early November for the fourth time over the last four years. That fact alone should explain how much I enjoy fishing on the Reel Escape with Captain Willy and his amazing crew. The Reel Escape is a meticulously maintained Cabo with all the best equipment piloted by a Captain who... More

Great fishing; roosters, wahoo, tuna, grouper. Had a Black Marlin on for 10 minutes or so before he broke off, saw him at the boat; estimated to be approximately 500 pounds. You don't get a chance at many fish like that.

Willie and his crew were absolutely awesome. We spent 4 hours on the immaculate boat. The crew was friendly and knowledgeable. We each caught a tuna and other fish. Great time and we all highly recommend Reef Escape.

Went with my friend who is a passionate "Fischerfrau" from germany...We had the time of our life, the boat is so comfortable, my friend got out quite some big fish, while I prefered sunbathing and taking pictures :-) Excellent crew on board. Highly recomendable!

Captain Willy and the crew did an awesome job getting us on fish from start to finish! I've done a few 'Ocean Charters' with little to no results over the years so somewhat skeptical this time around. However, that quickly ended when Capt. Willy got us on to Rooster Fish right from the start and it never ended. We caught... More

Excellent captain and crew! It was our first time ever fishing at sea! The most immaculate clean boat ever. After catching each fish, the deck was cleaned immediately. Incredible! Fresh fruit, cold sodas, we were taking care of like kings. They offered us to take the fish back to the lodge, but we left the fish for them, which they... More

Back on board the Reel Escape for a full day fishing. May 2016, great fishing, great crew and great trip again. Will be back for a third time. Mackerel, Tuna and Wahoo. The freshest sashimi made on board by Alex, pictures attached. If you want to fish the south pacific in Costa Rica, Fish Drake Bay will not fail to... More
