After reviewing the charter companies on Tripadvisor, I chose Fernando and Charter Fishing Cancun and am so glad we did! To book the trip, I communicated with Fernando via email, and it was quite easy to book and ensure everything was set!
My boyfriend and I had the Aissa out for 6 hours and it was a complete blast!
Our transportation was arranged, and we arrived at the marina to meet with Fernando. He introduced us to our crew and then we were off! The crew suggested we sit up front in case dolphins are spotted, which was fabulous, but the trying to get to the back of the boat once we reached our destination was another matter haha! It was a little rocky out there.
The crew cast out for the live bait and then they bait the hooks and toss out to see what we can catch! Once a fish is hooked, we are given the rods to reel them in. They will remove the catch from the hook and re-bait and re-cast. For anyone who isn't a fisherman, this is really nice and easy. They also tell and show you how to reel in properly.
Drinks were a plenty on board. They supplied beer, soft drinks and lots of water.
We caught 2 tunas, 1 king mackerel and an amberjack. We had 3 sailfish. Yes, that's right, 3 sailfish!! One made it to the side of the boat before the line snapped and the other two were only 12 feet out before we lost them.
FYI, we compared the pricing to the ones at the resort, and Charter Fishing Cancun was cheaper. Definitely recommend Fernando and his crew!!!
