We have been deep sea fishing before on previous vacations but this was by far the best fishing yet! Capt. Santiago was great about emailing me back before we got to Zihuatanejo to schedule the trip and answer all of my questions. His boat is very nice and the equipment is top notch. He is very friendly and speaks very... More

For the past number of years while visiting Zihuatanejo we always look forward to our fishing trips with Captain Santiago and his brother Adan. They are very attentive and make the whole experience a fantastic time. We always catch a variety of fish and of course that always includes sailfish. Our last trip in January 2014 we caught 11 sailfish... More

Not going to throw a lot of bouquets here. Chago and Adan are simply the best. Never less than his best for all the many many trips of sport fishing in Zihuatanejo. They have both created memories for me and my family that will be cherished forever. Santiago and his family have embraced us as we have embraced them. We... More

Santiago is an awesome person and an excellent fisherman and conservationist. I look forward to fishing with him again in the future. I fished with Santiago aboard the Gitana the day after we arrived and it was obvious to me very quickly that I had chosen a good Captian... we caught a total of 3 sailfish, two came at the... More

19 sailfish in 3 days!!! Santiago did a great job both with fishing and more importantly with the whole experience. Best fishing charter we've done - anywhere. Santiago, Adan and Francisco worked their tails off. Bait was kept fresh, constantly tweaking the setups - really maximized our experience. All while taking good care of the sailfish we caught - only... More

My sons ages 11 and 8 and I went fishing with Santiago and his brother Adan on 12/29. It was our first morning ever in Zihua and we did not really know what to expect. Santiago had communicated with me via email and told me when and where to show up. He was waiting for us at the pier in... More

I read the reviews and admit I may have had too high of expectations (Also fed by Santiago directly when emailing to get the trip setup) Which is why I am compelled to write this review. I understand that deep sea fishing is expensive and there are no guarantees. This outfit is one of the most expensive available. I thought... More
