“Amazing experience!”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

I was on a yoga retreat in Puerto Escondido and dolphin watching was one of our adventures. Omar and his assistant Israel were absolutely amazing!!! Their passion and enthusiasm were contagious throughout the entire boat ride! I felt incredibly safe and loved hearing all of the fun facts that Omar provided about the turtles and dolphins! I strongly recommend that anyone going to Puerto should go on this adventure!!!!

We heard about Omar Sport fishing through Lonely Planet. We had a great time, Omar was a very interesting, enthusiastic and educating guide. We saw a lot of dolphins, some turtles and great scenery! We strongly recommend this!

“We had the best time...”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

Israel, Omar's assistant, was a fantastic guide for me and my husband. He really cared about our having a good time. He trolled successfully and hooked the sailfish without really taking the credit for it. My husband reeled it in and Israel got it up into the boat for the photo, then threw it back. I really appreciated that he didn't kill it and take it in to sell it, instead trying to preserve the sea life. Then, he found and followed a pod (?) of dolphins and let me get into the water and swim with them. We also saw many turtles in our outing, one with a seabird taking a rest on the shell of the tortuga. A great morning! Be sure to spend a few hours swimming and relaxing in Puerto Angelito afterwards. It's a real Mexican vacation spot. We enjoyed watching all of the families...busy because it was the week before Easter.
