we (three adults and a 3 year old) have been deepsea fishing with Omar and Osso.
it was a great morning and we directly grilled the caught tuna fish after returning to the beach. Omar and Osso were very friendly and explained us all the specials and the stories about their region and deepsea fishing in general!
also for the 3 year old, it was absoluteley no problem to get out there for approx. six hrs. we all had fun and felt very comfortable with the boatteam!
muchas gracias (para el tortuga foto)

Three of us travelled around Mexico for a month and we all agree that our day trip with Omar in Escondido was our best day out. We were collected from our hotel on time and brought out fishing in Omar's boat. Aswell as being very well organised, Omar's knowledge of the area and the fish are second to none. We caught 16 mahi mahi and 1 sailfish. Other boats only caught one mahi mahi the same morning. He also gave us the opportunity to swim and get our pictures taken with turtles which was brilliant. When we returned to the shoreline Omar brought us to a nearby restaurant which cooked one of the mahi mahi which was delicious. Overall I would recommend Omar's fishing trips in the highest regard. A great day out! Thanks Omar!

An early morning start saw us out to sea with Omar and his crew

Our first day out didn't yield a result but a fine time was had, seeing plenty of turtles, dolphins bird life. We enjoyed our time out with Omar and his crew and decided to try our luck the next day.

Omar is extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic, his crew are super efficient and on that second day boy did we reel them in!!!

Hotel pick ups, morning coffee, fishing and catching, sitting under the palapas eating your catch of the day accompanied by Coronas, spectacular scenery, wildlife and the high speed launching of the boat onto the sand all make for fantastic Holiday memories!!!

This is a must for anyone visiting Puerto Escondido

We had an awesome time when we went fishing with Omar. The first day we went we caught a couple of dorado's (mahi mahi) and an amazing sailfish! The trip was so good we decided to go again two days later this time taking our girlfriends along to see the loads and loads of dolphins we saw on the first trip. This time we caught more dorado's and even a couple of skipjacks (small tuna)!

I would definitely recommend going fishing with Omar!
