26′ Panga Jaco

Capt. Dan Ross Jaco, Costa Rica Incorporated Licensed Insured

Come explore the world class fishing opportunities off the coast of Jaco, Costa Rica aboard our 26’ center console charter boat! The Nazaria is perfectly equipped for inshore, nearshore, and offshore fishing charters. So, you tell us which fish you’d like to catch, and we’ll take you to where you need to go!

Charter boat Nazaria is docked a stone’s throw away from the Los Suenos Resort and Marina, right next to Herradura Bay. She receives regular maintenance and was newly restored in 2015. She’s equipped with outriggers, downriggers, live bait well, VHF radio, fish finder, sound system, and GPS. She has all licenses, permits, and insurance required to fish a maximum of 4 anglers. You’ll also find a marine head (toilet) on the Nazaria.

If you’re looking for an inshore fishing charter, we have you covered! Roosterfish, Grouper, Red Snapper, and Mangrove Snapper are caught in abundance 365 days a year. Snook and White Seabass are also caught frequently during their peak seasons. If you’re wanting to venture further off the coast of Jaco, Costa Rica to take advantage of the world-renowned billfish fishery, we recommend reserving our full day 8hr fishing package. This allows us time to travel up to 25 miles off the coast in hunt of the coveted pelagic predators such as: Sailfish, Blue Marlin, Striped Marlin, Black Marlin, 40+lb Bull Mahi Mahi (aka Dorado, Dolphin), Wahoo, and Yellowfin Tuna. All billfish are strictly catch and release, but you’ll be able to bring home your Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and Yellowfin Tuna fillets!

You’ll be led by Captain Jose and a crew of highly experienced locals. They’re great with first time anglers, kids, seasoned vets, you name it! If you’re wanting to experience charter fishing at its finest, we’re the crew for you. Captain Jose has been fishing the Herradura Bay his entire life and has become intimately familiar with the migration patterns and feeding habits of the local gamefish. He’ll effortlessly put you on one of the most productive fishing trips you’ve ever been on! Your trip cost for the day includes: A first mate, use of our finest tackle, fresh/live bait, lures, and we’ll clean and fillet all of your catches at no additional cost.

The offshore fishing grounds off the coast of Jaco, Costa Rica are also consistent 365 days a year. Dolphin (Mahi Mahi), Yellowfin Tuna, Sailfish, and Wahoo are experience their peak seasons from January-Decemeber… That’s right, every month produces incredibly high catch rates for these pelagic gamefish! If you’re wanting to catch one of Costa Rica’s 3 native species of Marlin (Striped Marlin, Blue Marlin, Black Marlin), the best months to fish for them are October, November, and December. Another great window to target Marlin is from April-May.

You didn’t travel to Jaco, Costa Rica just to hear about how great the fishing is, you came to experience it first-hand! You’ll be greeted on the docks with eager smiles as we look forward to helping you catch a variety of Jaco’s most popular game fish.
