My husband and I along with 2 friends booked a boat for the day. Booking with Vivian was so easy!!!! Leo and Bernie were a fantastic crew and really made the day extraordinary. Fisherman have a superstition about bananas on a fishing vessel which we didn't realize when we brought bananas as snacks on the boat. If there are bananas... More

My buddy and I went on a 4 hour charter with Ivan, Pepe, and Daniel on 1/21/15. I lined the trip up all online with Vivian 3 weeks prior to going on our trip. Read a lot of other good reviews and decided to go with Ivan and the crew. The reviews didn't disappoint. All of the crew spoke very... More

Went as a group of 4 on the Papa Kees. Setting up the trip with Vivian could not have been easier. I was shocked at how quickly she responded to our emails. Ivan and his crew were standing by at the beach ready to go when we arrived. Ivan gave us the option of doing whatever we wanted for the... More

I am soooooo late in writing this review that I am ashamed of myself. I unfortunately delayed booking Ivan personally but Vivian hooked me up with another boat and crew. We had a great time, all 3 of us caught a Mahi Mahi, saw schools of flying fish and had a great tour of the area. Next time in 2016... More

We had a great day on the boat with Ivan, fishing was tough but we caught a barracuda. My wife was feeling a bit rough but loved it when we pulled in at the secluded beach and started snorkelling. Vivian who dealt with all communication was a pleasure to deal with and responded so quickly! Ivan and the Crew worked... More

Are family did the half day fishing half day snorkeling. What an adventure! We went out on the Mary Sue with Captain Pedro and deckhand Leo over the Christmas vacation. These guys definitely no what they are doing! We caught three fish in all, two mahi and a king fish. I posted a picture of my son Daniels monster Mahi!!... More

i have done deep sea fishing multiple times on the Pacific side and assumed I would get more of the same on the Gulf side. After reading Trip Advisor reviews I settled on Fishing with Ivan. I sent an email and Vivian responded within 2 hours. I wanted a boat for 6 hours for just my husband and I since... More

My wife and I went fishing with friends. The captain and crew where great. We caught 2 king fish and had a great time. I'd highly recommend Ivans.

I fished four days, three different boats. I have commented on them all. All provided an excellent day in different ways. All more or less fished the same – deep water ( 350-400 ft deep) speed jigging for amberjack. Using spinning reels with 65 lb braid (cuts hands if not paying attention). And some trolling to give sore muscles a... More

My family fished and snorkeled with Ivan and his crew over the Thanksgiving weekend 2014. We had our two young children with us, ages 10 and 9. I could go on and on about the whole fantastic experience, but what meant most to me was the consideration and attention Ivan and his crew showed the kids. I've fished with many,... More
