I tried to set up a day of fishing with Fati, but received no response once I was in Mexico. At home we emailed back and forth, but I could never get much information. When I got to Mexico it just stopped.

Booked this as a Christmas gift for my husband. Ricardo was easy to work with via email before I left home and after we arrived in San Jose. Our captain was great, knowledgeable and helped us catch some mackerel and a large yellowfin tuna. We had a great day and a good lunch in the marina afterwards.

We just came back from Cabo and had a great time. We spent a day fishing on the Hook and Real. The captin/crew were great people and knew where to go to catch the fish. Caught 10 large Yellow Fin Tuna.

My boyfriend, our daughter, and I went fishing on the Reel & Hooked boat. The price was far more cheaper than anything that I researched and the captain and his first mate, or deckhand (sorry not familiar with fishing terminology) were very accommodating and nice. Within, I kid you not, 40 seconds of throwing in the first line we caught... More

Had a good captain and boat but it was a dead day for fishing, had 1 marlin hit, but was gone in 60 seconds. Dull hooks! Took us to catch a couple small Roosterfish and consolation.

Easy to get a charter boat for 4-5 people, good crew and all was done without issue. Only 1 Marlin but the fishing was a little slow.. If it was catching it would be easy

I chartered the Fati 2; their largest available boat. About 24 foot open console , "bare bones serious fishing boat". Our catch, one 160 lb. striped marlin. The maneuverability of this boat allowed for targeting several marlin seen in the area and adjusting speed and bait better than most of the larger charted boats. No frills, but an experienced captain... More

I filled out an online form to make a reservation with Fati based on all the great reviews on Trip Advisor. I gave all my contact information and never heard a word from them. We were very disappointed considering how well that had been rated. Next time, we will try someone else.

Great time spent on the water with Fati. We were on the Fati II which was just the right size for the two of us. We caught Dorado and Wahoo plus saw lots of whales. Could not ask for a better day on the water

We spent 6 hours fishing the sea of Cortez , It was a little slow but we did manage one, the bonus was a 1/2 hour whale watching ,the guilde Choco got us so close the whales spray actually reached our boat. AWESOME day.
