My wife and I had a great trim with Adan on 4/24/15. We took their boat with 2 engines. It was just my wife and I and it was very comfortable even if we would have had a larger group. We had gone out on 4/22 with another boat, 36' with twin inboard diesels that I thought would be more... More

Again, "Team Gitana" Santiago, Francisco and Adan out did themselves ! We very highly recommend Gitana sportfishing!! Very family orientated and their knowledge of fishing is incredible... Last year we caught 7 sailfish, and this year we caught 8 sails ! one was considered a long distance release, he got off after several jumps. ( it was a small one... More

A great day with Adan. Good fishing. Great boat and gear. Everything super professional and well done. If you want to fish with someone who cares deeply about the guest experience, loves to fish and has great respect for the fish book with Adan and Santiago. You will not be disappointed.

We hired Adan via his brother Santiago. On the water by 6:30 a.m. and watched the sun come up. Both Adan and his son hustled to get the poles ready and did their best to bring the fish to us. At one time we had three sailfish on the poles at once and a whale breeching in the distance. Amazing!!... More

On my second trip to Zihuatanejo, with my brother coming down to visit I thought we would celebrate my 61st birthday with some fishing. We set up the day with Captian Santiago and we were off at 6:30 am out of the bay. He gave a little chuckle when I told him I had never fished in the ocean and... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our fishing expedition with Alan. He knew exactly where to go and we had two bites within five minutes of the bait being set up. We landed two big sailfish which were released and a large Dorado we cooked up at his sisters restaurant. The boat was clean and the equipment top notch and... More

Amazing fishing trip. Friendly and fun! even if we didn't haul in 2 sailfish, and a dorado, it would have been a success. Great boat, and friendly people. We will be fishing with Santiago any time we are in the area, and have already told all our fishing buddies he is the man to see while in the area. Second... More

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
