We had a great time with our family! The crew was very friendly and took great care of everything. We're looking forward to our fresh caught mahi mahi tonight at Driftwood Restaurant. Thank you Marcelo, Jairo and Arjean! Hope to be back in October!

My husband and I booked a half day trip and had Anthony and Jose as our captain and mate. We caught several barracuda, amberjack and daulphin. They kept lines in the water and baited. The boat is fully equipped with a fighting chair, great gear, cooler for drinks(which they provided) Once back they cleaned our fish and took it to... More

My wife and I chartered an afternoon trip with Driftwood on 7/25/15 and had the pleasure of going out with Marcelo and Jairo. They were welcoming, made us comfortable, and answered all of our questions about fishing/the island, etc. The seas were slightly rough at times, and we both got a touch of sea sickness, but the guys were understanding...

As expected Marcelo and Jairo provided my wife and I with a perfect half day fishing trip. We caught two huge wahoo and a half dozen very tasty yellow fin tuna. If you don't know this, the Driftwood Restaurant comes down to the dock, picks up your fish and you are treated like royalty that evening at the restaurant being... More

We booked a half day morning fishing trip (four hours) to take our kids (ages 8 and 10) fishing and to get out on the water. The crew, Anthony and Jose, were very pleasant and friendly. The boat was very nice. They had a restroom on the boat and provided cold water and soft drinks. Unfortunately it was a little... More

We had a great time bringing home 3 Mahi-mahi, and one tuna. The biggest thrill was reeling in a 6ft sailfish which put up a good fight jumping out of the water several times before we brought it on board for a few pics and then we released it. Captain Antony and Jose were great hosts and made the trip... More

We booked a full day charter, and Marcelo and Jairo took good care of everything. We had a great haul including numerous tuna, wahoo, mahi mahi, barracuda and, best of all, one white marlin. You really could not ask for a better trip. Dinner at the Driftwood Restaurant later in the day was excellent and offered more that we could... More
