“Yemaya has the BEST crew I have ever had anywhere. Nice boat!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2014

Fishing in Punta Cana definitely has its positive and negatives. My experience with the Yemaya was simply excellent!!! Crew worked very hard, always had 6 lines in the water(unless there was a fish on!), and spoke good English! Willie is a top notch fisherman!!! We toughed through 6'-8' w/ 10' seas with our children aboard and enjoyed a great day fishing. Willie and Cookie were great! We ended the trip with 19 Mahi-Mahi and a Barracuda(had a Blue Marlin
hit one of our Mahi-Mahi). Overall - well worth the money!!! Thanks again to Willie!!!

“Do not go on crazy gator fishing excursion”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2014

So bad, Hotel Beds, our tour desk at Majestic Elegance refunded $200 of the $300 charge incurred. Signed off on 1-3' waves....ended up 8' waves. 5 of the 9 people sick. Totally understand crew cannot control ocean conditions but perhaps they should not have taken the boat out.

Boat was filthy dirty, the sanitation conditions deplorable, no life vests or safety instructions provided.

Do not waste your time and money. More importantly, don't put your own safety or your children's safety at risk. If you really want to go deep sea fishing in Punta Cana find a more suitable alternative.

“Deep Sea Fishing off of Punta Cana”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2014

My first time deep sea fishing. Good and bad. I had never gotten sea sick before, but boy this time really did me in. We were on a 6 hour trip, leaving at 8AM. Seas were 12 foot or so, very rough, at least headed out for the first 2-3 hours. We trolled the whole time, and after about 3 hours started to head back in, no fish so far. On the way in though we got our first hit, a Mahi mahi that was very good size, some 50 pounds. Soon after that we hit a White Marlin,, also decent size, i will post the pictures.

The trip back was much calmer and i did not feel sick then. Our Guides, Emilio and Coca-Cola did a great job the whole time. I would do it again, but this time I am taking Dramamine!
