“Excellent Fishing Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

My family just got back from our charter and it was awesome! We caught a wahoo, 2 barracudas, 8 bonitas, a tuna and a blue jack; and all during a slower season. The wahoo and larger barracuda were both over 50 inches. We also lost two big fish when deep sea fishing, heartbreaking.

Fernando was awesome in returning emails and organizing everything. The captain and crew were what really impressed us. The team was CONSTANTLY working and they made it their mission to put us on the fish.

I give the whole experience a 5. My only downgrade was for value because we found a few trips which were about 100 bucks less. That being said, I would still use them again over the competition.

“Great time fishing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

We booked a charter fishing trip with Fernando. He gave us a 5 hour trip for the cost of a 4 hour. Very prompt returning emails and providing information. We changed our pickup location at Moon Palace the day before and it was no problem. The driver picked us up at Moon Palace and was waiting for us once we were back from fishing. We did not catch as many fish as we were hoping, but a bad day of fishing is still better that a good day at the office. Crew was working hard and did not give up. We did manage to catch 5 trigger fish. Very enjoyable day! We did all take Dramamine before the trip and no one got seasick. We were drowsy and took a few cat naps on the boat, but better than loosing breakfast. I would recommend booking private charter!

“Great day fishing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

A group of seven of us--four adults, one teen, two 11 year-olds--booked a four hour fishing cruise for December 27 while we were in Cancun for the holidays. Fernando answered all e-mails promptly with a full description of what the day would entail. We were picked up at our hotel exactly when promised, then driven to the marina where Fernando greeted our van and walked us to the Biro. Though we were seven people and he'd recommended the Aissa, he had the larger Biro available and we went out for the same price as the Aissa would have been. Payment was in US dollars (cash) as we were prepping to leave the dock. Captain Roberto and his crew were fantastic...very friendly and laid-back about the fact we had kids with us (though the kids had all been fishing before.) We caught three barracuda near the hotel zone lighthouse--one of which was 5 1/2 ft!--then went out further and caught a 48" wahoo, a triggerfish, and a beautiful mahi mahi. One of the kids did get seasick when we were further out and lost his breakfast over (and on) the side of the boat, but the crew was very laid back about it (in a good way) and simply tossed water on the mess to clean it up and offered suggestions to help the seasick person feel better. I've been on other fishing trips where the crew would make a huge deal out of someone accidentally spilling a drink or being sick, so this was great. The crew was all-around fantastic and treated all of us--kids included--with respect. They offered to stay out an extra hour at a prorated cost, given that we were catching fish, but with one person seasick we decided to go in at the four hour mark. Once we were back at the dock, Fernando greeted the boat and made a point of asking us how things went, how we found the crew, etc. I really appreciated that. Next time we're in Cancun, we're booking with Fernando again. It was a fantastic morning the whole family loved.

“Book private Charter and it was GREAT>”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

Booked private charter for my husbands birthday. The staff was great. We had 3 staff on board with us. We caught several fish and they were very nice the whole time. Perfect amount of bait, tons of beverages available. Nice fishing boat also. They made sure we were comfortable the whole time even though it poured rain for over half the trip. Thanks again.

“Great Deep Sea Fishing Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

Right from the first email, I was impressed with the information and the quick responses to our questions. This was our first time deep sea fishing, and we had a wonderful time. The crew was ready to depart right at the time we arrived. The crew was wonderful, friendly, fun and super personable. We booked the six hour trip, and caught twelve fish in all, 8 mahi mahi and 4 baracudas. The cooler was fully stocked with drinks including corona's, sodas and water. Super clean vessel and thank goodness, a bathroom on board! One tip, take gravol before you go if you are prone to sea sickness! The crew filleted one of the fish we wanted to take with us, and the rest we left behind. If you get the chance, take this fishing trip!
