I went out with Jairo and Jose (2) times while I was on vacation there and both trips were exceptional. The first time we went out with a group of people and based on the concerns some had about rough seas, they tailored the trip so that we still caught a number of Tuna, Mahi-Mahi, and had some Wahoo bites....

We had a great time aboard Driftwood I with Captain Jairo and his mate Sergio. Conditions were tough (other boats got skunked), but our crew worked hard. We landed three nice Black Tuna and a nice sized Wahoo (I have a blister on my reeling hand to prove it). After fishing, our catch was transported to the Driftwood Restaurant where... More

Booked a half day charter on 2/8/17 with Hats off Charters. Was not able to go out with them because they broke their downrigger on the morning trip. The captain puts on the Driftwood as a back up. What a great trip. In four hours of fishing we caught 2 blackfin tuna, mahi mahi, bonitos, and lost a nice Wahoo.... More

The crew of Jairo and Jose were excellent in finding the fish and answering our multitude of questions about the Island and local fishing. We ending up catching 4 tuna, a barracuda, and a shark. After the conclusion of the trip we decided to have the crew drop the fish off at the Driftwood Restaurant so they could prepare the... More

The guys on Princess Kate did an amazing job. Went on a half day trip with my wife and caught a sailfish and 6 mahi. Missed a couple more. Sherman and crew killed it, had a blast fishing with those guys. Will definitely go back again.

Jairo & Jose were our fishing guys. They were personable, fun, & upbeat. They cheered, high fived & exhibited lively attitudes. We caught tuna, barracuda, & mahi mahi. We were able to eat our own fish that we caught. The restaurant connection to the charter fishing was a nice touch. I personally hate the taste & smell of fish. I... More
