We visited Huatulco for the first time in March 2020 and chose Pilo for our Sport fishing tour. Pilo picked us up promptly at 6:30 am just outside the gates of Dreams Resort and drove us to the Marina. There was Pilo and just of us in The Black Pearl, which was equipped with life jackets and a cooler of Aqua and cold Cerveza. We told Pilo that we really wanted to try to catch our first Sailfish. As we headed out (in the just risen sun) we saw turtles and several pods of dolphins. Pilo’s fishing equipment was top notch and he used bait that he buys fresh from the local fishermen to help support them so he could quickly & efficiently have the lines out in the water. (I’ve been sport fishing before elsewhere with a guide who had to first catch the bait before we could actually get to sport fishing). I was worried that it might be rough if we went out far enough to try for sailfish but the ocean was calm and neither of us felt any hint of sea sickness. Trolling around in the Black Pearl was a fun time to talk with Pilo. Before long we had a strike and Randy had a great fight pulling in his first ever sailfish. We were so excited and at this point we were totally satisfied with our trip because it was a lifelong dream to actually catch a sailfish. BUT before we knew it, we had another strike and I got the thrill of reeling in a powerful Sailfish too! We give full credit to Pilo for having the right boat and equipment and know how and location that allowed us to catch TWO SAILFISH BEFORE 10 am ! Gracias!

We visited Huatulco for the first time in March 2020 and heard that the fishing was outstanding. We were lucky that Pilo had a morning trip available. Pilo picked us up from our condo and we met up with Tony at the Marina to begin the day. Pilo is personable, easy to talk to and has a very positive attitude. The charter fishing boat was in excellent condition. We headed out to fish for the big ones and we caught 2 yellow fin tuna within the first hour. Next, we landed a beautiful Mahi Mahi. We also saw thousands of dolphin (different kinds) and about a dozen sea turtles on our trip. Pilo and Tony also spotted a sailfish that we tracked for a while...it was quite a chase and so fun. We enjoyed their company and they worked hard from the beginning to the end of the trip. Tony is an excellent first mate. My 10 year old son absolutely loves deep sea fishing and this was his favorite fishing trip we have taken (out of about 7 trips he's ever taken). My 13 year old daughter had a blast too and she normally is not a huge fan of deep sea fishing. My husband and I enjoyed the trip immensely and feel like we got super lucky to hook up with Pilo and Tony.. Pilo's sister has a restaurant on Santa Cruz Beach so Pilo took our catch over to her to cook for us....it was a delicious lunch! We will fish with them again on our next trip to Huatulco!

My husband and I were fortunate to have a private tour with Pilo and his friend, Jose, on our recent trip to Huatulco! We had a great day of snorkelling and exploring the remote bays of the Huatulco Nature Reserve which are only accessible by boat. We had the bays to ourselves! We also got to do some fishing, a first for both of us, and caught several fish including a black tuna! But the highlight was visiting a huge "pod" of dolphins - there seemed to be hundreds of them - and a a surprise visit by a humpback whale! Pilo and Jose are a wonderful team, very knowledgeable of the terrain, history and marine life of the area! We strongly recommend their service to anyone who wants a day on the ocean in this beautiful area of Mexico!

We arrived on a cruise ship and had a reservation with Pilo for just my husband and I on his smaller boat, The Black Pearl. He was waiting for us at the pier and we were away in minutes. He had drinks aboard for us and worked very hard all day to make our fishing trip very memorable and tailored to us. After catching some smaller fish, we decided to go out and try to catch a sailfish. We ended up in large pods of dolphins, jumping on all sides of the boat. It was a sight to see! We finally hooked a sailfish and I'm sad to report that after a couple of big jumps, he got off:( Pilo worked very hard to try and get another one on the line, but we finally decided to go in and catch smaller fish again. At one time, we had a fish on all four lines. We caught several bonita, chula and yellowtail, which gave my husband the biggest fight. We had a great day and I cannot say enough about how fun, kind and knowledgeable Pilo is. Of course, my husband was disappointed that the big one got away, but as Pilo says, "that's fishing." He is easy to contact and book and responds quickly to e-mails. We paid in cash at the end of the day.

We went fishing with Pilo and Jose and had an amazing time! We can’t say enough about him and Jose. They were welcoming, professional and very knowledgeable. The boat was clean and very spacious. We had four fish on the line, two sail fish fought tooth and nail, and one sailfish in the boat. We couldn’t have asked for a more exciting day! Also there was no shortage of beer for our thirsty group. Thank you guys! This was the highlight of our trip!
