We had so much fun as this was the first time deep sea fishing for many of us on our girls trip. We can not wait to go fishing with Julio again next year!! Fishing, catching and then getting to eat your catch fresh was a wonderful experience. And to top it off we saw whales and dolphins along the... More

I booked a fishing trip for Feb 2 with Julio online through Carol who set the time and place to meet him. "Ty Carol" My friends and I meet Julio at the pier at 7am and he suggested we buy a lunch and refreshments for the morning. At the end of the pier is a corner store which had some... More

We for three days with Julio. He and Thomas work hard to get you into fish. I spent a couple of days going for large game and managed to land one incredible sailfish. It was an exciting twenty minutes or more of action with lots of excitement when the big fish came up to the boat. I fished for small... More

I booked the trip via email with two other people and paid $100 down payment via Paypal. This was easy and they were accommodating for us. We set up to start at 8 instead of 7. Then we were to go off shore fishing first and if we did not catch anything we would go in shore. We went out... More

Julio was on time and super nice. Fishing was suppose to be slow, but Julio had us on the fish all day long. We caught needle fish and probably 20 to 25 bonita. My girlfriend caught her first fish. After we finish fishing we headed to Las Gatas beach and had a wonderful lunch by a beautiful beach. Great time,... More

We used Julio's boat for rooster fishing. Alejandro and Thomas were the crew. Unfortunately, the fish weren't biting the day we went. However, the crew tried hard and took us out to catch some Bonitas. After our trip, they dropped us off at play las gatas at Julio's mother's restaurant Olitias, and we had some great food and relaxing drinks.... More

I went fishing with Julio's Tours in Zihuatanejo, Mexico and it was a completely wonderful experience. The capatin and crew were polite, the boat was clean and in ship shape and the gear was completely modern. We caught lots of fish and had a fine meal afterwards.

This was our second trip to Zih and while the end of May is not the ideal time to go (hot), we had a great time! There was stormy weather off the coast that morning and we asked Julio if he thought it was heading our way (my Spanish is very poor), he said he thought it was and we... More

During our very first trip to Zihuatanejo a couple of weeks ago, my husband, two children (9 and 12) and I joined Julio and his first mate, Tomas, on a snorkeling and fishing combo for the day. We had a wonderful time. Carol and Gary, Americans who assist Julio with his clientele, helped us to book the excursion and provided... More

Our family of four signed up for the fishing/snorkel trip with Julio last week during our March Break. The best part of the experience was the pre-trip booking exchanges with Julio's volunteers. The day of the tour we easily found the meet up location but Julio was late. We then waited on the pier while he got drinks for the... More
