I booked with Santiago after reading all of the excellent reviews. I also respect the fact that he practices catch and release for billfish. We started off ripping into a school of Bonita and then used several to troll for bills and sails. Unfortunately we got skunked but it was still a great trip. The Giatana has just been repainted...

Booked a day of fishing with Santiago over the net, his email returns and info where perfect. We stayed in Ixtapa for a week, therefore I had a window of three days to fit in a fish, and Santiago made it work. My Brother in-law and I met Santiago and his brother Adan at the wharf and with the picking... More

My wife and I had a great trim with Adan on 4/24/15. We took their boat with 2 engines. It was just my wife and I and it was very comfortable even if we would have had a larger group. We had gone out on 4/22 with another boat, 36' with twin inboard diesels that I thought would be more... More

Again, "Team Gitana" Santiago, Francisco and Adan out did themselves ! We very highly recommend Gitana sportfishing!! Very family orientated and their knowledge of fishing is incredible... Last year we caught 7 sailfish, and this year we caught 8 sails ! one was considered a long distance release, he got off after several jumps. ( it was a small one... More

A great day with Adan. Good fishing. Great boat and gear. Everything super professional and well done. If you want to fish with someone who cares deeply about the guest experience, loves to fish and has great respect for the fish book with Adan and Santiago. You will not be disappointed.

We hired Adan via his brother Santiago. On the water by 6:30 a.m. and watched the sun come up. Both Adan and his son hustled to get the poles ready and did their best to bring the fish to us. At one time we had three sailfish on the poles at once and a whale breeching in the distance. Amazing!!... More

On my second trip to Zihuatanejo, with my brother coming down to visit I thought we would celebrate my 61st birthday with some fishing. We set up the day with Captian Santiago and we were off at 6:30 am out of the bay. He gave a little chuckle when I told him I had never fished in the ocean and... More
