I have been on the boat and on the water for almost all of my life, but have only been in the charter business for 9 years. My passion comes from seeing a passenger on my boat with that smile when they get that nice fish on board.

Exxelent from start to finish!
Communication before the trip was flawless.
Directions to the boat were dead on.
We were fishing in the bay with light tackle.
Ariel and Louis knew and were friendly with everyone we came across.
Ariel had a plan to locate and target fish.
We started off trolling and looking.
Within the first half hour we had small Bonita that were live lined.
Ariel and louis zeroed in on Red Snapper and Bonita.
We were using small artificial bait - cast and retrieve with gentle jigging.
Hook ups were often and super fun.landed a bunch of fish - Red Snapper - Bonita and a Jack Caravelle that took an hour to land on light tackle.
It is the trip you dream about - perfect!
The Calypso II has a wide variety of services and destinations. The integrity, value and comfort were all top notch.
If you want a safe fun way for the entire family to experience the genuine treasures of Mexico
Book with this outfit.
None of us will forget this trip.

Wrights had a great morning fishing with Captain Charlie and Sam. They got us on a fish right off the bat and continued to get us 2 more and a smaller fish.
The experience was well worth it. The only thing we had a problem with was paying at the end. They only take cash and the site did not mention that. But overall, great crew, great environment, and we had a great lunch made out of our fish after!

Originally booked four hour trip captain suggested six or an eight hour so we booked a six hour. Captain said we were limited to the bay on a four hour trip he said our prospects for catching better fish was outside the bay, but when we arrived the day of fishing we stayed in the bay and the fishing was quite slow.I assumed he knew where the best fishing was and he would take us there since I do not know the area.

Looking at youre crowed of people I suggested about fishing the coast line to get some nice eating fish and the stoping at las animas for. Some great seafood lunch you said yes that’s the reason we stayed close to the coast.  And by the way for 6 hrs we don’t go out side the bay but next time you come by you’re self I will personally take you out aging and get you into some nice fish my friend ok. Take care tight lines
