We were a little apprehensive about meeting unknown people on a boat in an unknown area. We even fudged up on our initial date and Ricky worked it out with us for a better day. Getting to the meeting spot in Puerto Adventuras was a little difficult but they did show up on time and in a nicer boat than... More

Hola! Thank you for sharing! We try to get the crews to be more involved with the clients and explain what we are doing and why. Some are a little shy and even when speaking Spanish. They feel embarrassed at times to not pronounce something correctly. We are pleased to hear that you caught Mahi Mahi and Sailfish. These are... More

Ricky offers to book for either the 16th or 17th:" looks like we are able to deliver either day" and I confirmed that only 16th will work as our crew has plans for the 17th. We arrive for pick up at Puerto Aventuras on the 16th...no... More

Well, there is quite a bit more to the story as a reader might imagine. We did receive a reservation from you on March 12 for two boats, six passengers each, for the same date, March 16th. I immediately started trying to contact you that very day (4 days before) to first ask if it was a mistake or if... More

My purchase was a 6 hour deep sea trip out of Puerto Aventuras on the vessel "La Paloma". It turned out to be a little more than 5 hours as the boat was a half hour late to the dock and returned 15 minutes early. The meeting point and time (8:00 am) was delivered to me via email when I... More

Hola Amigo, First, thank you for making your review; it is helpful especially when it is critical of a charter. If we don’t hear it from you (client) then I would just as soon not hear it until I know I am getting the clients view – crews tend to think highly of themselves. I wish you had contacted me...

Fish weren't biting, seas were rough. Which, of course, is not their fault, but full size boat for 6 passengers was very old and run down. The rods and reels didn't always work when we got fish on. They would quit cranking and the mates would just pull the line in with their hands. Would not go out again with... More

My wife and I had a great time fishing with Cozumel Charters. The crew was great! We highly recommend booking a fishing trip with them. Everything was a breeze from making an online reservation to arriving at the dock.The next time we return to the Riviera Maya will definitely book another trip.

My husband and I booked a small charter for just the two of us. We had an absolutely perfect day out on the ocean. We chose to troll and sport fish. We didn't catch anything too big, but we did catch some nice sized "smaller" fish (although they were the biggest fish I have ever caught) including grouper and barracuda.... More

Thank you "Rachael G" for that outstanding review. We are very pleased that you and your husband enjoyed your charter so much. Personally I thank you for mentioning your crew and that they were so attentive to you; ladies get special service. In the fall, the deep sea (trolling) slacks off some and for this we recommend selecting a deep... More
