We booked a four-hour fishing and snorkeling excursion with Fishing with Ivan based on the reviews here at Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. Our crew consisted of Eddie and Tony, who were great. It took awhile to catch something but when we finally did, they were pretty good catches - two 15+ pound barracudas. The snorkeling reef they took... More

We had the pleasure of going out on the water with Chino and Pepe. These two guys were great and worked very well together. We caught a few barracuda's and one big mahi-mahi. When we got back to shore they fileted the fish and we had it cooked at the restaurant on the beach. It was great the restaurant did... More

First deep sea fishing trip & it was awesome. Our tour guides - Eddie & Tony were very nice & a lot of fun. We did the 4 hour deep sea fishing & snorkelling which was awesome! We were lucky enough to catch 2 barracudas and a mackerel, which we later enjoyed in a delicious 4 course meal. Would definitely... More

My husband and I with our 8 year old daughter booked a 4 hour trip with Ivans. Booked our holiday through Thomsons who recommend another company but the reviews weren't as good as Ivans. Glad we read trip advisor 1st as we weren't disappointed. Ivan's crew were great with our daughter and tried hard to ensure we all managed to... More

My family of four (2 adults, 2 children - ages 7 & 11) went fishing in late August. We were on the Mary Sue with Chino and Pepe. It was the highlight of the vacation! The boys had a great time and talk daily about all the fish that they caught. Chino and Pepe were very knowledgeable about the fish... More

Had a great time with the family. The crew was great and made sure you were happy! They didn't mind going over the 4 hours we booked and never asked for extra cash. We chartered the boat for an excellent price for 3 adults and 3 kids!

What a trip for 6 women from Chicago! I know the workers were a little leery when they first saw 6 girls get on the boat, little did they know what was in store with all of us. Pepe and Chino were the best captain and mate we ever could have asked for. Not even 10 minutes out of the... More

Great trip this morning for two Dads and teenage sons. The team are really helpful and informative when booking. Crew, boat, equipment and bait all good with plenty of soft drinks on board. No shortcuts, good long trip as advertised and a lovely Barracuda to top off the morning. Given cost of other activities in Playa I think this is... More
