There you are standing in the stern of the Reel Escape sport fishing boat in Drake Bay, Costa Rica with rod and reel securely in your hands. Suddenly you get a hit and in a matter of seconds over 400 feet of line spools off your reel. It must be something big. You are thrilled even though you realize you... More

Could not have had a better experience fishing with Capt Willie and crew on the Reel Escape. I was a little worried our 9 year old would hate it but she loved it so much we went out for a second day. Willie started us catching live bait so she got to pull in a bunch of fish right off... More

We booked a half day in-shore fishing trip on the Reel Escape with Captain Willy. The day started with an on time pick up on the beach of our rental followed by an orientation to the Reel Escape. After that we jigged for bait fish and then moved to deeper water to try for rooster fish, groupers and others. The... More

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.
