HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! 😃 Had great communication with Roberto leading up to the trip. We fished jiggs and live bait. On this occasion the live bait was what worked. We caught 3 good size amber jacks. Well 2.5 really, as a shark ate half the 1st fish on the way up! Lol Roberto and his crew are really nice guys, who... More

What can I say, Roberto knows his stuff. If you are after amber/almaco jack on the jig in the Playa del Carmen area, look no further. My dad and I fished for three days with Roberto in September. Maybe not the hottest season, but plenty of action. Jacks, big cuda's, black grouper and to top it off a couple of... More

As I had done traditional deep sea fishing a few times I wanted to try "jigging" to experience something different. Roberto definitely knows what he is doing and you can tell he still has an amazing passion for the sport after doing it for so many years. We did catch one fish, but it got off the hook shortly after... More

This guy knows what he's doing. Within 20 minutes we hooked into a giant sailfish. Jigging mind you!

Fished with Roberto Navarro and his crew on July 19th. Have to say that him and his crew were first class and made the trip a lot of fun. Started the day at the docks in Puerto Aventura and was impressed with his honesty as prior to heading out, he made me aware that the conditions were less than perfect... More

Caught some great fish and enjoyed the day with family. Caught a 6 ft shark and took some back to resort and enjoyed with family.

Capt Roberto Navarro was amazing. If you like jigging then he is your guy. We were not there in peek season but we still had some great hits and landed a nice almaco jack and big jack crevalle. Something also cut me off once. Coming form florida it is quite an experience to be jigging in 350 ft about a... More

Fished July 1st 2014 . Roberto's boat was in for repairs so one of his local captain friends offered his boat so we wouldn't miss the fishing day. I took 2 greenhorn Jiggers, my son and a cousin. They enjoyed it very much. we caught 4 different species: blackfin tuna, almaco jack, spotted grouper and amberjack. great day on the... More

Roberto is fantastic! He put us on fish immediately. We had three lines and there were fish on all 3 as soon as they dropped. We've been on many other fishing trips and never had much luck. Our last fishing trip in Playa resulted in no fish. We trolled the entire time. With Roberto, my husband caught one huge tuna,... More

Had an opportunity to fish a couple days with Captain Roberto Novarro in Playa del Carmen this past week. Had a great time out on the water. Day 1 greeted us with a mixed bag - all jigging. Black fin tuna, almaco, amberjack, barracuda, and sharks. Got my personal best amberjack and cuda... The hot jig was the Hots drift-tune.... More
