We had a 12:30 charter with Edy on 4/22/14. Edy met us at the beach right down the street from Phantom Divers. He was on time, and ready to go. We were offered sodas, water, beer, and a light box lunch. This boat trolls just outside the "drop-off" on the PDC shoreline, and a 4 hour trips takes you Puerto... More

The captain was very knowledgable but we did not catch any fish. There had been a lunar eclipse recently which was partially to blame according to the crew. The captain ended up going closer to land to chunk fish. Caught a couple of small fish but nothing noteworthy. That's what fishing is all about however, sometimes you catch one and... More

Captain Edy was an amazing guide. He took us out and treated me and my girlfriend with care and worked hard to find us fish. We started looking for the big fish but based on the time of year they were not biting. I wanted to catch something so he took us to a honey hole where we were able... More

We had a great time on the boat with Edy. We did a 4 hour trip for fishing and snorkeling. While we didn't catch any fish, it wasn't for lack of trying on Edy's part. We tried several locations and he wanted to stay out beyond our original four hours to try to get us something, but no luck. He... More

I would say that edy is one of THE best fishermen in Playa del Carmen. My husband and I have known Edy and his family for over 20 years. My husband refuses to fish with anyone else. Not only is he knowledgebable-he is a fun, honest and runsa clean safe boat. He is especially good with kids and one thing... More

My son and I booked last minute and Capt Edy was a great find! Within 5 Minutes of leaving the beach my son Koye was hooked up with a nice Barracuda!! Biggest fish he's caught to date! We saw some big sea turtles (tortuga's) and was a great sea fishing experience. I would highly recommend Capt Edy and will book... More

Edy works hard for you, and makes sure to find the fish! He gives you a truly great experience, and makes you feel like you are part... More

I would like to thank Captain Edy and his mate for providing an enjoyable fishing trip in spite of an extremely rainy day. We were forced to cut the trip an hour short due to weather but still managed to boat four ladyfish and a three foot barracuda. We also had a much larger barracuda right up to the boat... More

We booked our trip online before we left for Mexico. We arrived early at the dive shop and Edy was there ready for us. We set off and was not dissapointed with the results. Edy and his crew work extremely hard and once the fish is hooked you are handed the rod. Edy and his crew are great bunch and... More
