Capt, Adon Valdovinos & Francisco, were organized and ready to fish, these guys work hard to find fish. At the end of the day we caught 3 Sailfish, at one point we had 2 Sailfish on jumping all over the water.

Fished with el Capitan Santiago and first mate Adan on Saturday. Although the fishing (catching) was not stellar, the crews, equipment and boat are very nice. Quite windy with large waves and swells. We abandoned plans for the deep sea excursion for sailfish and other pelagic species, and instead came back closer to shore. Caught 2 bonita. Returned on Wednesday... More

We just returned from a trip to Ixtapa and had the great fortune of fishing with Captain Santiago twice. We didn't catch a lot of fish BUT i'd say quality is better than quantity. we did have a lot of excitement catching a 180 pound Blue Marlin on Friday. Santiago and Adan were terrific and if it hadn't been such... More

I host fishing groups every year and these Captains continually win our group tournaments. They are hard working, and fun to fish with. I have know and fished with them for 15 years and have never had a bad experience.

Fished with Santiago and "Frisco"(?). Met Adan prior to boarding. All great guys. Though we did not have a great fishing day, we did catch two mackerel and had a couple hits by sailfish. I wish we would have taken photos of the two fish we caught, but I think we were all pretty sure we would catch more. These... More

I have fished with Gitana Sport Fishing 7 times in the last calendar year (March 2015, December 2015, January & February 2016) and Santiago and Adan are by far my favorite charter fishing captains in Zihuatanejo! I have had good inshore and offshore action and they will put you on the fish that are biting. If you and your family... More

We fish another year with the number one sailfish tag and release Captain in the world, Santiago and his brother Adan. We fished both inshore and offshore and had a great time. We hooked five sailfish and landed three and also caught six awesome roosterfish. Both Santiago and Adan are very professional and know how to put you on the... More
