Juan Carlos and Jonathan took us on an unforgettable day of fishing, snorkeling and visiting beaches in the Marieta Islands. We left the beach below Garcia Rentals in Yelapa in the dark at 7 am and cruised out to the fishing grounds between Las Islas Marietas and El Morro, trolling as the sun came up and woke up the fish. My son caught a large Pargo Coconaco and was all smiles. Later, I pulled in a Bonito that provided us with the best ever ceviche lunch. On the way over to the islands, my daughter pulled in another Pargo. We split the fish with our guides and came home with three huge fillets to make fish tacos for the rest of the week. At the islands we checked in with the National Park rangers and then swam to a beautiful beach with caves and natural arches, snorkeled along rocky cliffs seeing thousands of beautiful tropical fish, and then visited the Cueva de Amor beach accessed by swimming through a long tunnel arch to an amazing sandy beach encircled by cliffs. Juan Carlos were funny and warm, great with my teenage kids, and amazing navigators, fishermen, and generous hosts. We'd recommend these guys to anyone. Luis was unavailable at the last minute due to the passing away of his aunt, but our trip was unforgettable.

Had a beautiful day fishing with Luis and Jonathon! Anything and everything you could hope for! They picked us up right on time, boat was spotless and just wait for the ceviche it was so great! You can tell that Jonathan is skilled with a filet knife! Well be back again for sure and whatever you need Luis can arrange for. It was great to hear about life in Yelapa and to experience this very special place they call home.

We visited Yelapa and Captain Luis's boat trip was the highlight of our trip. We sent out on a whale-watching trip and surprised by so much more. Luis skillfully navigated the boat alongside several dolphin pods where we could watch them play and race alongside the boat. We were even able to see a baby dolphin swimming and playing with their mom. Luis's experience of the local area and ocean was abundantly clear as we also saw several wales and a school of manta rays. I would highly recommend taking a trip with Luis to explore the coast.

Absolutely the best tours in the area!! Captain Luis Garcia and Jonathan are very professional, very knowledgeable and provide excellent service for a great price. They are excellent fishermen but also provide the best tours of the area. They are so friendly and helpful. Best service I’ve had in Mexico! I have had the most amazing trips with this company and have always been extremely happy with everything they arrange for me and my family! I would highly recommend their service. Well worth every penny!!!!

We spent a beautiful day with Luis and Jonathan today.I lost count of the fish we caught! 8 hours on the water went very quickly especially when there was so much action. Whales,flying fish,dolphins and a swimming trip through caves to a secret beach.What more could you ask for? Totally recommend Luis and and Jonathan. They return emails and keep you in the loop.
