I met the captain's brother the day before on a river boat excursion, so that's how I found Encanto. I didn't see the other review beforehand, which is good as I likely would have cancelled. We all had a great time. My kids, ages 7 and 10, caught 5 fish each including mahi-mahi and tuna. I caught something at the end of the trip that we never saw, but the crew believed it was a tiger shark. I spent 20 minutes trying to reel it in, then one of the crew tried for 20 minutes, then another member of crew tried for 5 minutes and the line snapped. The crew was very friendly and my kids learned some Spanish. They served fresh fruit and chips during our half-day excursion (5.5 hours), and cooler was fully stocked with cold beverages, including beer. I didn't ask about life preservers, but I wasn't that concerned as they had noodles and lots of other boats were nearby. The girl who picked us up at our hotel was a wild driver who needs to get a bluetooth. The crew cleaned our fish on the back of boat (out of sight) and had it all in ziplock bags for us to take at the end of the trip.
