We did a 4 hour fishing trip in the morning with Jairo and Jose. Our fist catch was a large Mahi and thence caught 5 tuna. It was my first fishing charter and it was my favorite excursion on the island. Thanks so much!

Did the 4 hour trip in the AM. Great value. The crew was great and we caught a 55 lb Wahoo and 2 Mahi. Water was a little rough but we made it through and my 22 year old son had a blast for sure!

Jairo and Greg were fantastic. They worked hard, knew where to fish, and we caught enough to feed our entire group more than we could all eat that night (the Driftwood restaurant, of course). All in all it was a great day and I highly...More
