Crocodile Bay FishingThe Costa Rica salt-water fishing is world class with Bill Fishing in the Pacific Ocean for Sailfish, Striped, Blue and BLack Marlin, Dorado, Tuna and Wahoo. Fishing in the Golfo Dulce for Roosterfish, Cubera Snapper, Jack Crevalle, Bluefin Trevally, Sierra Mackerel, Tripletail, and Grouper is excellent throughout the year.

It is common to raise 10 to 15 Sailfish a day with a potential 50 on a spectacular day. Our variety of inshore and offshore catch-and-release sport fishing options include an English speaking crew that also understands fly fishing and light tackle fishing in these tropical waters.

Dorado†- Also known as Dolphinfish or Mahi Mahi, Dorado are more abundant from May through January when the rivers send floating logs and other debris into the ocean. Dorado can be caught throughout the year.

Marlin†- Marlin have been taken every month of the year. Large numbers ov Blues are taken in November and December. July and August record the largest Black Marlin. Blues are also taken during the prime Sailfish months.

Roosterfish†- Without a doubt, the Roosterfish is the most exciting inshore and surf fish available and are the main attraction to inshore fishermen. The 30 mile long Golfo Dulce and the volcanic shoreline structure hold fish all year long. 40 to 50 pounders are common.

Sailfish†- This area is renowned for both numbers and size of sailfish. They are abundant year round with the greatest numbers taken December through May.

Snook†- The all tackle world record Snook came from these waters in 1991. The amount of freshwater flowing in to the ocean provides both surf and estuary fishing for these difficult to catch fish. Although available year round, May through October is usually better.

Tuna†- The bigger Tuna are taken during the most productive runs of Dorado, but smaller Tuna (footballs) are to be had all year long.

Wahoo†- These fast and explosive fish are found year round in limited numbers.

Cubera Snapper†- This is the most popular of all the local Snappers, due to its size and sheer strength. Fish over 50 lbs. have been caught in the area, year round.

Other†- Big Eye, Trevally, Bluefin Trevally, Jack Crevalle, Tripletail, Barracuda, Sierra Mackerel, African Pompano, Corvina and Grouper are available throughout the year.

Crocodile Bay Lodge

One of the few upscale lodges in Costa Rica, facilities at Crocodile Bay Lodge include a first class resort adjacent to some of Costa Rica's most beautiful beaches. The Lodge is situated on 44 acres of tropical gardens located on the Golfo Dulce on the Osa Renninsula in Southwest Costa Rica. The "Osa" has been described by National Geographic as, "The most ecologically intense place on earth." In addition to the Conference Center which accommodates up to 80 people, the Lodge features 34 air-conditioned rooms, a swimming pool with swim-up bar, elevated hot tub and massage room.

Each guest room has two comfortable queen-size beds and a deck that overlooks the surrounding gardens. Our spacious and well-stocked bar is open from noon to 10 p.m. Domestic liquor and beer as well as your meals at the lodge are included in the package price. The dining room serves delicious meals including fresh-caught tuna and mahi-mahi along with tasty Costa Rican beef. Enjoy locally-grown coffee and fresh tropical fruit and juices with breakfast.

The Osa Peninsula is a lushly forested land jutting into the Pacific. Beneath the surface of the offshore waters which can run several thousand feet deep, is the Cocosa Ridge, that runs all the way to the Galapagos. The complex mix of shallow and deep waters attracts a wide variety of fish, all within a short boat ride from the lodge.

On shore, the rainforest is filled with howler monkeys, scarlet macaws, tropical birds and other animals. Much of the Osa is protected in Corcovado National Park. In addition to the on-site butterfly house, the lodge arranges a variety of adventure trips and ecotours every day which are a delight for anyone interested in tropical nature.
