My husband and I with our 8 year old daughter booked a 4 hour trip with Ivans. Booked our holiday through Thomsons who recommend another company but the reviews weren't as good as Ivans. Glad we read trip advisor 1st as we weren't disappointed. Ivan's crew were great with our daughter and tried hard to ensure we all managed to catch something. We weren't so lucky on the rods so they patiently took us to different areas where we used a line, much more successfully.
Even down to booking, we wanted to ensure the weather would be calm and they were accommodating offering us certain mornings and easy booking. Great email communication.
Fab company, highly recommended.

My family of four (2 adults, 2 children - ages 7 & 11) went fishing in late August. We were on the Mary Sue with Chino and Pepe. It was the highlight of the vacation! The boys had a great time and talk daily about all the fish that they caught. Chino and Pepe were very knowledgeable about the fish in the area and our kids learned a lot in the 4 hours were on the boat! We will definitely book another fishing trip when we return to Playa next year. Thank you for a fun morning and the memories we made as a family!!

My girlfriend and I stayed in Playa Del Carmen last week and reserved a fishing tour online with Ivan a few months in advanced. This worked out better than expected! Crew was great,very nice and knowledgeable about the area. I would Definitely recommend booking your tour with Ivan.

This was awesome crew. Three hours into the trip we still had not caught anything so they decided to bottom fish and the captain caught a couple of small fish I got a little nausea so we headed back and Pepe kept baiting the lines and trying to catch something for us them it happened the crew went into high gear and caught appx a 40 lb Wahoo Fish. The crew was so excited they said it was rare to catch this type of fish and that some will come to just fish for that type of fish and never catch one. We were excited too! Our thanks to the crew who never stopped trying to catch us a fish and then to pull out a beauty and rarity like this was even better! We then went and they cooked our fish for us it was the best fish I've ever eaten! The crew was all around awesome The captain and Pepe were excellent guides!!! I had a great 50th Birthday at sea!!

Had a great time with the family. The crew was great and made sure you were happy! They didn't mind going over the 4 hours we booked and never asked for extra cash. We chartered the boat for an excellent price for 3 adults and 3 kids!
