“Fausto knows the island's waters likes the back of his hand”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2011

Fausto knows the island's waters likes the back of his hand. And he has got to be one of the sweetest men I've ever met. He was so helpful to me when i was first arrived on the island for a month's stay. I highly recommend you take a tour, any tour with this guy. If he can't take you out, because he's booked up - he will put you in touch with other good operators. He knows them all. Say hi to him from Michelle, the Aussie!

“Capitan Fausto knows how to catch fish!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2011

My husband and his friend went on an 8 hour fishing trip with Captain Fausto and Mahache Tours- it was around August 2, 2011 (? Not sure of the exact date- vacation brain!)

They very much enjoyed their day on the ocean- Fausto and his first mate did a great job. Unlike some operations, they really know what they are doing. Efficient and professional.

They caught a bunch of blackfin tuna and one bonita, a small sailfish (released, of course) and about 5 dorado/mahi mahi. They left most of the fish to Fausto but took some to the Brisas Grill where they cooked them up for us that night- it was delicious. Even the tuna, and we had heard blackfin was not great- but it was melt-in-your-mouth tender and delicious.

Fausto even e-mailed us photos a week later he had taken with his cell phone, the guys had both forgotten their cameras. This was much appreciated -great customer service!
