Avoid this company because its focus is not your satisfaction as a guest. It is over priced 2x. I presented my complaints and the company didn't own to its responsabilities. They chartered a fishing boat that was not operated by them and the experience was terrible.

Hello Gonzresearch, I’m sorry to hear you did not have a good experience. Our aim is to ensure every angler that comes and fishes with us has a great time. As you mentioned, when our five boats are 100% booked we offer an alternative option of finding another charter boat (not owned by us) in order to provide options for... More

Hello Scott, Thank you so much for taking the time to submit a review summarizing your experience with our charter operation.

Contacted Rich to reserve a boat for us and even though their boats were all booked for the days we could fish, they worked really hard and found a boat for us.

I know their are no guarantees in fishing, but when you pay what we payed the least they could have done is bring one in however small. Not this time.

What a great way to take the whole family fishing for the day! We booked a trip on the HattaDreams boat. There were 14 of us and 4 under five years old. GREAT CREW!

Weather was perfect. Fishing was really good. Everyone was friendly as usual, always a good experiece at Los Suenos. Only negative this trip, one bath tub would not drain and no one came to fix it so everyone had to share 1 shower the whole trip. (7 people.)
