This was the best fishing trip EVER! We caught 6 Mahi Mahi, had a swordfish on the line and along the way saw dolphins, sea turtles and a wahle!!!! It was an amazing trip and the crew was perfect. Highly recommend it, even withoug fishing experience as super helpful and explaining everything.

We have used El Jefe boats four times with memorable results. Two very successful fishing days catching 6 Sailfish, 3 Mahi, and 1 Bonito. The captain and the crew are very professional and hard working. Trying very seriously to make the day a success. And they do. One day of family adventure with snorkeling, waver running, paddle board and a great lunch in a beautiful peaceful beach. Special day snorkeling in the solitude of the Murciélago Islands at the end of the Santa Rosa National Park. All with a Pura Vida attitude. Highly recommend El Jefe for all sea adventures.

Did a private charter on 7/22/2021 with Jeffrey as our captain! Omgosh what a blast we had cruising the bay, seeing Monkey Head, cruising the mangroves where we saw a baby crocodile. Jeffrey took us everywhere and we enjoyed snacks and cervezas - would highly recommend!!
