Either fishing or a dolphin tour with Omar is highly recommended. Omar is highly knowledgeable about the local area, friendly, and has a great sense of humour. He and his co-worker Israel made sure we got plenty of photos on both the fishing trip and dolphin tour. They'll also let you know if seating or movement onboard needs to be adjusted for any reason to ensure safety. I felt very comfortable on Omar's boats and have had a number of other friends tell me the same. Well worth the price to have a great morning on the water.

This is the best ever trip 800 to 1000 spinner dolphins in full entertainment mode. Not to be missed. No one will ever believe what you have seen so take your video camera, Omar and his friends (this time Marco) go out of their way to make sure you have a fantastic trip.. And, they are just as excited as you are.

It is rare, extremely rare, to read reviews on tripadvisor that agree. So when you read about Omar and his consistently good reviews, one wonders why.

I have gone out with Omar a number of times over the past years and always have had good experiences. Sometimes no fish, but that is why the sport is called 'fishing' not 'catching' and still he trys so hard to make it work. So when other guides approach you on the beach with offers to go out, just mention you are booked with Omar and they always say something positive to say. They know he is the best.

This year my son was visiting and he wanted to go fishing. I set it up and when we got down to the boat, Omar suggested we not go out that day because it was going to blow and fishing was not great. He talked himself out of a days work. We left it to him to call when he thought it would be good. He did, we set up another day but again he called and said conditions were not good and he suggested we wait some more. So when he called and said conditions had improved, off we went this morning. We hit blue water and landed a 35 ib dorado, a 70 ib sailfish and a small tuna. And we got to see lots of dolphins and turtles. The whole meal deal

Great guy, excellent equipment and respected by his peers. If you want to go fishing or dolphin watching contact Omar (via email or cell).

Excellent experience, from fisherman who really knew what they were doing. They also encourage catch and release for the larger species which is very important these days, much better to get a photo and leave the beautiful creature in the ocean. We heard that many of the other fishing outfits will keep sailfish and marlin, indeed these species are commonly eaten by the locals. In a 4 hour morning trip we caught one skip-jack and 3 sailfish, two of them hooked at the same time, that's a big rush I can tell you. perfect day out. The conditions in peurto are excellent, and its great value compared with the rest of mexico i doubt you will be disappointed. Omar does charge around 500 pesos more than some of the cheaper charters but it is well worth it, and were offered to be picked up at out hotel. Its about £100 for 4 hours with a 4 person boat capacity ludicrously cheap.

We loved our dolphin watching with Omar, he really worked very hard and genuinely wanted everyone to have the best experience possible.
