Our group included multiple fathers and their young sons. They had an amazing experience with the captain and his first mate! They were safe, had fun, and caught multiple types of fish! We were even able to take our fish back to a local restaurant to enjoy it for our group dinner! I can't wait to go back and go... More

Our family of 4 had a great experience with Danny and Valentine! We were out for 5 hours and these guys were great. Boat was clean and comfortable. Will definitely use them again when in Puerto Aventuras!

This was my first deep sea fishing trip. Booked the 31' Puffin. Capt Rogue and Mate Frank were very friendly. Frank worked his butt off to make our experience great. We caught 2 blue Marlins, 65-70 lbs. and 75-80 lbs. Thanks for making our trip fun.

We had a terrible experience with captain ricks fishing charter. We chartered a 46 foot boat with 6 teenagers and 5 dads. As soon as we got on the boat we knew it was going to be a bad experience because the captain and his mate were not friendly or welcoming. As we got into the water I asked basic... More

This is an established business that has lost the meaning of customer care and customer service. We discussed our "family experience" with their office immediately upon our return and followed up with descriptive emails explaining the numerous deficiencies with their equipment and staff. The only reply we received was a lengthy explanation telling us how great their operation was and... More

Captain Santiago, 1st Mate Nahun and Eddie are top notch! First day we battled for two hours and landed a blue marlin! We had such a good trip we decided as soon as we docked to book a second. The second trip resulted in two sailfish in the boat and two others hooked! Several other fish were landed, but the... More

Booked a 31 footer for a full day private charter for my girlfriend and myself to catch some billfish. Due to repairs on our designated vessel Glenna upgraded us to the 38 foot Marlin Magic which was a lot more boat than we needed but as it came with Captain "Macho" Pol and the ever hard-working and charming mate Reyes...

Fishing was very slow for the first 2 hours, but it was a very hot afternoon with lightening in the air. That could have been a factor. Capt Lula and Pinky worked hard and Pinky was working and checking the baits the whole time. I was starting to worry we may get skunked when we had a sailfish on the... More

Booked a trip with 4 other men and my 6 year old son. My son was great on the boat, but thought they could have been nicer. They would get themselves water and not offer anyone any, not offer my son to come up and check out the boat, drive etc like other charters have done. Wish we would have... More
