The target species for the FADs fishing Costa Rica is blue marlin. There is a lot of bi-catch there as well like sailfish, mahi mahi, tons of small tuna and the occasional black or stripe marlin.

There is no season for this type of trip. Since these FADs hold bait year-round, we have found that you can have a great FADs fishing Costa Rica trip any time of the year. With that said, more fish are caught and reported during the months of April – November. However, a primary reason why this is, revolves around our tournament season and the peak sail fish season during December – March.

Your typical FAD trip requires a departure from the marina late afternoon between 3pm – 6pm. This makes it nice for anglers looking to arrive in Costa Rica and head direct to the boat to start fishing. Once aboard the boat, you will start your journey chugging to the FAD/Seamounts. This trip will take between 7 hours and 12 hours depending on the FAD your crew decides to head to first. During this travel time, you get to enjoy the company of your crew, a great dinner and some shut eye (That is if you can control the excitement and actually get any sleep). Around 4:30am, you will be woke up by the smell of fresh coffee and the crews feet hustling around on the deck. Once the light is bright enough that you can see the fishing spread, you start fishing. Typically this is around 5-5:30am. From there, you will have breakfast, lunch and fish until dark and then have dinner. If you booked the two night one day fishing trip, you will start your trip chugging back to the marina with an arrival the next morning around 5:00am – 8:00am.

As of now, we offer 3 night and a 4 night overnight FADS trip.
