We had a fabulous morning of fishing and dolphin watching with Omar and his assistant, Israel. Both were very professional, knowledgable, accommodating and did everything to make the most of our experience. AND I caught 30 pound Dorado! Omar Sportsfishing gets my highest recommendation.

Recommended by our hotel manager, our guide, Israel, was friendly, enthusiastic, bilingual and gave us a thrilling, eco-friendly fishing trip / pilot whale spotting trip of a lifetime. My son and I both caught fish (which we threw back) and took some fantastic photos of the whales and sea turtles. Worth every peso.

Omar Ramirez has a well-earned exceptional reputation for sport fishing expeditions and for trips to see dolphins, turtles, flying fish, rays and whales. Two friends and we went on the latter type of trip. We have been on many dolphiin viewing expeditions in the past - Omar's captain (Juan) and his first mate (Ebert - sp??) took us out and gave us a once in a lifetime experience. Omar was out sport fishing and had located a HUGE school of dolphins. He radioed Juan and then guided us out to the dolphins, almost an hour's ride out into the Pacific Ocean. En route we saw sea turtles, flying fish and a couple of bottle nose dolphins. Once on site, the boat was surrounded by literally hundreds of spotted, spinner and white bellied dolphins. They were in a playful mood, and came close enough to the boat (which was circling at idle speed) to touch!! The spinners lived up to their name and put on a thrilling show, leaping out of the water and spinning so high and fast they seemed to defeat the law of gravity. In all, it was a total adrenalin rush to see these beautiful creatures both up close and personal, and putting on such an unexpectedly joyous performance. En route home, one of us got the chance to try sport fishing, as Juan had a sail fish hit his line. Totally exciting. Omar and his crew were the consumate professionals - Omar waited several days before he would let us go out, so that he could be sure we would have a good encounter with a large school of dolphins.
This trip is excellent value for the money and we would recommend it and Omar's company to anyone wanting this type of encounter with marine life.

Omar and Israel are amazing! They know their stuff, are super professional, very respectful of the animals, always friendly and upbeat, with endless enthusiasm - ever at 6.30am!!! We saw more dolphins than I ever imagined, four humpback whales, jellyfish and endless turtles, topped off by jumping rays. I would not hesitate to go on another trip with Omar and Israel - I felt completely safe (despite hating boats) and the knowledge of the local sea that they have is second to none, plus are extremely friendly. Totally faultless!!!!
