What a great day fishing! We were on the Happy Face boat with Captain Ernesto and First Mate Eden. They worked so hard to help us catch a ton fish! We continually caught Black Fin Tuna, Red Snappers (HUGE), barracudas, trigger fish, Bonitas, and a sailfish. I would highly recommend these guys! Get good directions to the location - can... More

We went deep sea fishing on the Big Bite fishing charter. The captain Miguel and the first mate Jose were top notch. We started catching fish immediately after the lines were put out, catching some Bonita and a 25lb tuna and the topper a 90" sailfish. It was an awesome day. Steve, Wisconsin

We caught 5 red snapper 1 trigger fish 5 barracuda 1 big Grouper 1 tuna fairly big not as big as I hoped and countless Bait fish. After... More

We had a great fishing trip. Juan Carlos picked us up on time--courteous and friendly. We arrived at the boat and met with Fernando and met the crew---Capitan, Melvin, and Chivo. They asked us what we wanted to fish for and told them we wanted to eat our catch. Bro-in-law's first fishing trip was beyond expectations! He caught a good-looking... More

I've been on many deep sea fishing charters and this was excellent. We were picked up from our hotel perfectly as planned and were on the water right after arriving. We did the 6 hour trip on the 42 foot boat and it was worth every penny. The crew never sat down and worked very hard. It was a group... More

My husband and I went fishing - really without expectations. We fish a lot in the rivers of the Western US and catch a lot of 10" trout. When we went out with Big Game Fishing in Cancun, after we got out into open water we began catching 12-14" fish and the guide, Charlie, wouldn't let me take my picture... More

Booked with them due to the great reviews and lower cost than the places recommended by hotel. Fernando was our initial contact and he spoke great English and made sure everything was arranged for us. They arrived on time, and had the boat stocked with water, beer, and soda. We booked the four hour trip and they gave us an... More

Totally disgusted with our recent charter with Fernando! WARNING! This is not a guided fishing trip, this is flat out a commercial fishing boat that goes out everyday to catch their fish to bring to market, and bringing customers with to watch them as just an added bonus. The crew catches all the fish and than after they wear the... More

Dear user, we apologize for the bad experience, but also I want to say thanks for giving us a great opportunity to send a message and clarify things to a part of the fishing community that visit Cancun and that often is not attended as they want (and deserve): The very experienced fishermen. If you read the reviews of most... More

Personally I had a tough experience being out on the open water. I have never been sea sick before, however with the rough seas I did not get to enjoy the fishing so much. The friends I was with had a great time. Staff on the boat were friendly and very nice. We went for 6 hours. If I was... More
