“only wish we'd gone out for longer!”
Reviewed 31 May 2013

I booked a trip for just my husband and i for his birthday. super easy to reserve with Fernando with minimal deposit, remainder paid in cash the day of. He arranges your transport, greets you at the dock, introduces you to the crew, stays while the captain talks about the plans, and is there when you return. the crew was awesome-- we went on a very windy day, huge waves, and i was worried about getting sea sick-- Roberto was a very cool captain, and put my mind at ease. The crew worked hard to get us some fish-- ended up with a big grouper, some smaller trigger fish, a few bonito. my only regret is that i didn't spend the extra $ to book a 6hr trip. the 4hr trip seemed to go by way to fast, and i would have loved to have spent more than one hour trolling, and one hour bottom fishing (it's about an hour out to the fishing grounds past the national park/coral reef). saw some sea turtles on the way-- overall, a great experience with a very professional crew.

“Highly recommended!”
Reviewed 30 April 2013

In Cancun for a wedding, I organized a guy's day out for 8 people that started with a 6 hour fishing trip with Fernando. Dealing with Fernando was a breeze - he responded promptly and gave us all the information we needed. We paid up front by Paypal which was the easiest thing for us and had absolutely no issue.

On the day in question, our driver arrived on time to pick us up from our resort (despite a screw up on our part). Once we set sail, Roberto and his crew worked tirelessly to make sure that everyone caught a fish. While the crew seemed disappointed we didn't come home with more it wasn't from lack of effort on their part. More to the point, nobody in our group was complaining. Quite the opposite, the talk of the week was how much fun everyone had. Our haul for the day was 1 red snapper, 1 tuna, 2 barricuda, 1 mackeral, 2 grouper, 1 red snapper and 3 trigger fish.

Lots of fun. I highly recommend it.

“Great trip”
Reviewed 5 April 2013

We took a trip on April 1 and it wasn't an "April fool" The crew works hard to get you on fish We landed 2 sail fish (and saw more after our bait) and a lot of tuna on our trip. Had a great time hats off to our captain Pepe and crew Cuko and Oliver. When you meet Daphney Aubry at the front desk you will feel great and everything she promised she followed through with. Use these guys they are honest a do a great job.

“Great Fishing Trip”
Reviewed 11 March 2013

Five of us (including one child) did a 6-hr fishing trip last week (March 5th), and the whole thing was great from start to finish.
Fernando replied promptly via email to all my questions, reserving the trip and putting down a deposit was simple through paypal. The communication was super all the way through, and the van picked us up at our hotel for the day's trip right on schedule.
We were on their 42-foot boat due to some maintenance being worked on the 38-foot boat we had reserved (larger boat provided at same price as the smaller boat as a result). Captain Roberto and the crew were terrific. They helped us as needed, but when we didn't, they sat back and let us fish. We caught a very nice Wahoo, a big Kingfish, and several barracuda trolling, as well as some small bonitas. Later we switched to bottom-fishing and brought in a great snapper and some small grouper, and a few other assorted small fish. You can tell when a captain is really trying to get you on fish, and when he is just going through the motions and hoping for the best - and I can say for certain that Roberto really cares about getting you on fish, both by the way he and the crew work, and in conversation with him. He loves fishing, and he loves helping you get the most out of your day, and the same can be said for his crew.
The crew cleaned the snapper we caught for us and we dropped it off at the restaurant where we having dinner that night on our way home and they cooked it for us, very tasty.
Everything was provided for - gear, bait, licenses, drinks, etc. Fernando was insistent that he has no hidden fees, and he means it - everything is included in the price he quotes you, which makes it very easy to just book your trip and know that everything is taken care of for you.
I very highly recommend this company, we could not be happier with our day on the water.

“AWESOME TRIP!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!”
Reviewed 21 February 2013

Us and another couple went out for a 6 hour fishing trip last week February 15th and it was a complete blast! First I would like to say that Fernando's communication during the whole booking process and right up until we went was great. We had a nice day on the sea. We caught some big Mackerel, grouper, red snapper, trigger fish, and some lizard fish. The captain and his deckhand were really great! They were very knowledgeable and they worked very hard to make sure we were catching fish all the time. They didn't have time to relax. They made sure we always had beer and if we were ready for another one. It was the best deep sea fishing trip I have ever been on and I think I can say the same for the rest of our group! I would highly recommend these guys!
