My husband and I had a great time. Ivan and his crew Danny were wonderful. They were always attentive to our needs. My husband got seasick, not due to anything the crew did, but just one too many drinks the night before. He still enjoyed himself and was so happy when we caught a Mahi Mahi. We would definitely fish... More

Due to weather conditions, we were unable to take the fishing trip that we had originally planned. Prior to the cancellation, we were in constant contact with Vivian about the weather and ultimately made the decision to cancel our reservation completely due (didn't have any free days left). Vivian made a point of driving to our rental and returning our... More

Fishing with Ivan was an excellent experience. Mate Pepe and captain Bernard made it a great trip. Can't wait to return!

We went fishing with Ivan last week on our honeymoon. It was such a great experience, the mates did such a good job and we came in with a really big mahi. Ivan had a restaurant on the beach cook it up for us with some delicious ceviche as well. Overall the trip was wonderful and would recommend to anyone!

My wife and I spent a half day on our honeymoon fishing on 6/8/2015. We met Ivan on the beach and he introduced us to his two crewmates Ramone and Dani. Everyone was so friendly. We set off and did some jigging for Tuna for about 40 minutes or so. Ivan and Ramone showed us how to do it. We... More

This was my first deep sea fishing trip, and my boyfriends as well. I was completely unaware that you typically need to book a fishing charter at least a few weeks beforehand, and I contacted Vivian just 6 days before our trip to Playa del Carmen. All the other fishing companies were booked, but Vivian managed to squeeze us in... More

This was my first time deep sea fishing. I made my decision to book with the "Fishing with Ivan crew based on the solid reviews on tripadvisor. I will tell you that all the positive reviews were spot on. Just a couple e-mails to Vivian with a small deposit using "pay pal" and you are on your way to a... More

Went out with Bernardo ( the captain) and Pepe who are both very experienced fisherman. This is clear from the outset and both are like machines when it came to getting us out and fishing asap. First trip we got a sail fish, mahi mahi and a barracuda and as we went out early and came back at lunch time... More
