Today I’d like to share our fishing excursion adventure. Oops, spoiler alert: If you are expecting amazing photos of giant Marlin, Sailfish or Rooster, be warned. We took our trip in the low season, the water was not blue enough and therefore our actual “fishing” was a little shy of the desired outcome. But it was a marvelous morning out on the waves, I got some great photos and my friends were able to enjoy the ocean off the coast of Manuel Antonio. Here are a few of my favorites from the day’s events. My friend, Jacques, had his heart set on a Rooster fish but it just wasn’t meant to be. We only reeled in one little Snapper which we ended up leaving behind. The trip was wonderful, however, and I would recommend the tour group to anyone. We used Lunatours out of Quepos. Check out their website at http://www.lunatours.net. There are several really awesome boat tours with different venues. Another time I will share our Catamaran tour with you. Awesome! Our boat Captain for this day was Junior and our mate was Alex. They were both hardworking, friendly and wonderfully accommodating. Fun was had by all.
Here they are, ready to hit the waves. Meet Jacques, Amber and Mikey, my good friends from Baton Rouge, LA
I had to try out the chair….just in case. 🙂
Meet our fishing Mate, Alex. We had a nice visit and he was great with the lines as well as keeping us supplied with fresh fruit, water, snacks and unlimited beer!

This became my favorite spot, great for photos and sunning..
One of my favorite shots
We fished close to the rocks in the hopes of finding Rooster fish. I loved the waves, the spray and the birds
I can never get enough of this view
This was my favorite shot of the day
READY? There’s something tugging on the line..
Well, it was no Rooster fish but it was a fish. 🙂
Turning my attention back to the spray and surf, we enjoyed the rest of our ride. The faint of tummy and hangover sufferers took a nap while I continued to snap away, reveling in the glory of the day.
Thanks, guys, maybe we’ll have better luck next time!
BTW, there is a huge fishing tournament out of Quepos in February with cash prizes and lots of boats. If you are an avid fisherman, this is a real opportunity to have a great time and catch some big fish. Check it out at http://www.queposbillfishcup.com
See you on the piers!
