A great morning fishing !
Sep 2019 • Friends
We enjoyed a really good morning fishing with Jacko and Joao.

We were joined by a family of 4 from Germany so we had good banter as England v Germany fishing competition. Sadly England lost the fishing but we had good banter in doing so !

Will be back next year !

Fantastic experience, excellent captain!
Aug 2019 • Friends
Myself and 3 friends went with Jacko and his first mate bottom fishing one afternoon from Lagos Marina and caught a good haul of mackerel, red snapper and a few scorpion fish. We had a few beers and a good laugh with the rest of the guests. We immediately booked shark fishing for the following day with Jacko.

Early the next morning we arrived at the Marina to head out shark fishing, and we managed to hook 3 sharks! We are all novice fishermen but both Jacko and his mate were very calm and patient with us - a fantastic experience which I will definitely recommend regardless of your fishing expertise, we even had a close encounter with a pod of common dolphin!

Very reasonably priced, not to be missed!

Super shark day
May 2019 • Friends
This was the second time I have ventured out with Jacko and we maintained our 100% catch rate in some style. Landing 4 blue sharks two of which were around 6ft. Jacko always provides a warm welcome and his experience on the water is pretty much unrivalled. The conditions we faced were less than ideal so to catch at all was good going. I’ve seen a few reviews on here critiquing the crews “hands on approach”, I’ve also seen the jaws and power of a blue shark on balance I’m more than happy to take Jacko’s support when available! Would recommend pescamar without hesitation and I’ll be going back.

They Stole My Fish
Jan 2019 • Couples
Like many of the other reviewers commented Captain Jocko and his assistant Joao are very experienced fisherman. They took us to a spot and we caught a lot of fish. Joao was very patient and really helped us with our fishing technique. And, unlike an earlier review, even though someone had cancelled, they honored our reservation and took us out as scheduled. Instead, they brought along a friend to fish. Where the story turns sad is that they took the fish that I caught and gave me the fish that there friend had caught. My fish was pretty spectacular and about 2-3 kg larger. Even though we left them most of the fish we had caught, they felt the need to steal our fish. (See the pictures). When we arrived home and found they had given us the other fish we were so hurt that they would do something like that. If they would do something that unethical what else are they capable of. I would not recommend this boat captain. I hope you can find someone with more honesty.

Fishing Trip
Aug 2018 • Family
What an amazing day out!!!!! This is a perfect activity for novice fishers and the kids had a fabulous time. It was very easy for all of us to pluck out 7+ fish each and the four hours went very quickly as we were all busy baiting up, catching and taking pictures of our amazing fish! The Pescamar guys were great with the kids and very patient whilst we repeatedly tangled our lines!

A couple of things to note, you need to take all your own drinks/food but if you are going out for four hours who wouldn’t?!! They need some ID for the fishing licenses so remember to take this with you.

Great fun !
Jul 2018 • Family
Took my 10 year old daughter with me for deep bottom fishing. We coughed many many mackerels and even a big octopus!
The owner supported my daughter a lot and we were both very happy when we arrived back in the harbour.

I am even thinking of a full day for blue marlin fishing.

Strongly recommend Pescamar Big Game Fishing !!

Bottom Fishing Small Fish
Jul 2017 • Family
This is a nice size boat and just a bit cramped in the cabin if all 8 spots are taken and you all aren't friends. We signed up for the bottom fishing. A good price for a little fishing. The spot is just a short ride from the harbor. I knew the fish would be small but they were all under size. Even the one that was big enough to keep would not have fed a person for dinner. The captain and mate did work hard trying to keep folks baited up. I'd give them 4 stars. This trip is great for kids or folks who have never fished. But if you know what you are doing you'd best go for big game.

Great fun, plenty of fish.
Jun 2017 • Friends
This is the second time I've been on a trip with pescamar in 2 years. Jaco and Joao who run the boat are good at what they do. They have good local knowledge and the boat has sonar so they can find the best spots for the prevailing weather conditions. This trip we did bottom fishing at two locations after the first proved poor fishing, the second location was great and managed to fish out a couple of decent bream and some big mackerel to take home for dinner. The boat has all proper safety features as well as a fridge for food/drinks. A really fun half day.

Excellent captain and first mate
May 2017 • Family
My son and I went on the afternoon bottom fishing trip with Captain Jacko and his mate. Both were very welcoming and took great care of us. I booked via email and phone and Jacko was very responsive. I would definitely recommend this boat to anyone looking to fish while in Lagos or the nearby area.
