Great day with Roberto and Tomas. We combined a fishing trip with snorkelling, and then a shore lunch at Otilia's. Roberto speaks perfect english (he spent some time at school in Vancouver) and is very pleasant. We caught 5 black fin Tuna, which were prepared 4 different ways, which was plenty to eat for 4 of us.The day went really... More

We had a great time taking in the beauty of the Zihua Bay, then traveling south until we found the fish. We caught several fish, including 2 big yellow fin tuna's. Last year my Dad caught and landed a Sail Fish with Julio!! It was a beautiful and successful day of boating and fishing. Then he took us to Otilia's... More

For the last two years, a few people from our group have had the privilege to experience a guided tour with Julio. Both were wonderful tours with great sights (dolphins too!) and fish you were proud to take pictures of. We definitely enjoyed eating the catch as well. There are others offering guided tours but I would recommend Julio.

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

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.
