“Sportfishing on 19 Feb. in Puerto Escondido”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

This was the second year that I have gone fishing with Omar. I have also dealt with two other boat captains. They are both very good and very professional. Omar is the best. He has a great understanding of fishing conditions, the weather and the water. He takes a very professional approach to his job and works very hard to meet the needs of his customers. He also speaks very good english which can be very helpful for clients that do not understand Spanish. For a fisherman, Omar is very positive about success, a good trait in a fishman.

When we went out fishing we saw dolphins, flying rays, etc. We were concentrating on fishing. We had a double hitter on Sailfish and we landed them both. We also had a double hitter on "Jacks". We did see three Sailfish jump out of the water early on in our trip, I think that was a good sign. Omar's crew handled the rods and lines like a profession. That and good boat handling was what allowed us a good chance to land both fish. I must say that the two fishermen. myself and Larry also did a good job.

I recommend Omar Sportsfishing to anyone that wants to have a great time on the water. I have been fishing long enough to know that you do not alway catch fish, with Omar you have the best chance. You will also have a very good time.

“Great trip, respectful of wildlife”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

Omar and his crew gave us a great tour of the area's wildlife (turtles, dolphins, rays, whales) for a very reasonable price (400 pesos). He was also respectful of all of the animals, never getting too close or making noises to disturb them or feeding them or anything like that. All around a great tour. We went in the early AM (7am) at his and our hotel manager's recommendation and were not disappointed.

“Omar's dolphin watching”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

Great trip. Hundred of Dolphins around the boat for ages. Mantas leaping as though on cue and two humpback whales close enough to count the barnacles on their tails. A great morning on the ocean.

“Great water guide!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

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.
