What’s Shaking @ Marina Pez Vela – April 2024

The HEAT IS ON here at Marina Pez Vela in April. More than just a reference to one of the warmest months here in paradise at the end of the traditional dry season, the temps here at MPV are on high as this is another action packed time for us at the Marina. April includes the Marina Pez Vela open and the Offshore World Championship.

Marina Pez Vela Open: April 13

The Marina Pez Vela Open is going to be a one day shoot out with an entirely new format this year. The Tournament is an important warm up event for the Offshore World Championship, which start with their kickoff event the next day, but is also a chance for locals or visiting anglers to compete and share in these fun one day events. This year’s MPV Open brings the best of competitive fishing and fun fishing together with two entry divisions, including one for IGFA (International Game Fishing Association) rules which require that each angler hook and release their own billfish, and another division for a relaxed meat fish division which allows for hook and pass angling for those with a bit less experience. Don’t miss out on your chance to be a part of this amazing kickoff event!

Offshore World Championships: April 14-April 19

The Super Bowl of sports fishing returns to Costa Rica again this April and will be bringing together the World’s Best Anglers to compete for the coveted World Championship title. Unlike most tournaments here in Costa Rica and around the world, the OWC requires that teams have won a prequalifying tournament to participate, and anglers fish all days on a rotation of Costa Rican flagged vessels. This tournament is an important support for a local charter fleet and brings a global spotlight on the nation’s world class Sportfishing waters, our conservation efforts and hospitality . There is no better time to come to the Marina and watch the international teams with their daily weigh ins, national flags and team spirit and 4 days of the world’s most competitive fishing. These anglers compete by international rules, don’t have the luxury of their own boats, captains and crews and are on a new boat each day to insure parity and a focus on angler skills. Come out and support all the international teams, but moreover Costa Rica and Marina Pez Vela as the host of this global celebration and competition.
