I just went fishing in Feb 2017 with Captain Rick's charter... SO easy to book - Glenna in the office is fantastic! Drop her an e-mail or give her a call, and she'll let you know when charters are available to join as a single person. Set rates are $110 USD for half day (9am - 1pm) or $190 USD... More

Things are fine, people, boat, etc, just it's not a pictured fishing trip. We expected the boat the stop in the middle of the sea, at a calm spot, and we fish & chill there. Instead, it's "deep sea fishing" and the boat keep riding at its full speed, against waves, over and over again, throughout the journey. Our fault... More

back to the area for our annual vacation and first stop was booking another fishing trip with Captain Rick's. Quick and easily done with the friendly office staff in the marina. Had a half day morning trip on the Manetto, with Captain Lucho and mate Johnny. They are one of our favorite teams. We had a newbie with us this... More

We went on a 6 hour trip on February 9/17! Trolling for 4 hours then bottom fishing for 2. The crew was great as the fish weren't to hungry but worked hard and got us on some fish. The boat was the Reel Loco and Captain Antonio aND mate was Mariano

Let me start off by saying my wife and I are experienced with fishing and have done many fishing charters in a variety of locations. We booked a 4 hour fishing trip through our travel rep, which was to be shared with four other people. To start, we were picked up at our resort 40 minutes late, which the driver... More

I am not going to respond to all of your complaints, but I am sorry that you did not have the experience you wanted on your fishing trip. To defend the drivers, I will say that they work hard to get people here on time. If the first people are late or we are given incorrect information on where they... More

Booked this 4 hour trip through our hotel for my girlfriends 20th birthday. Very organised excursion, lovely mariner to sit at before tour was ready. Maximum of 6 people on boat so was quite a personal experience. Ended up catching barracuda, red snapper and yellow snapper. Had a right laugh with the crew. Drink was supplied by the company but...

Chartered a boat for 3 of us for $450 for 4 hours. Guess I should start from when we got picked up which was 10 minutes late and we showed up 10 minutes early just to be safe. By the time we got on the water it was 15 min after 9, lets remember that since we paid for 4... More

I am truly sorry that you had to wait an extra ten minutes for your transportation. We cannot control traffic and if the person on the van before you was late it causes a trickle down effect. Also, I am a little confused about no place to sit on the boat. You were on a boat rated for eight people... More

We booked a fishing/snorkling trip with our friends at Captain Ricks. Bob, Glenna, Javier and Pepe always treat us like family. In our trip we fished to and from a fabulous spot for snorkling that Captain Ricks directed us to. It was wonderful. As always the crew of the Big Fish kept us entertained all day.

I chartered My Obsession with my 9 year old son for his first ocean fishing trip. We hooked up within 15 minutes with a decent needle fish that we released. Right after that my son started to get sea sick and the first mate was very helpful with him. I asked to try bottom fishing and they immediately changed the... More
