The boat shown in the picture we booked was not the boat that we actually took

I emailed and included my location for pick up in the booking but was not picked up and was told I emailed too late

The crew requested that we come in almost 2 hours before the trip was scheduled to end. They knew before we went out that the trip was a waste of all our times

The crew was anything but friendly and mainly spoke Spanish and laughed throughout the trip.  I understand I am in Mexico so it’s not that big of a deal.  Just unprofessional

On March 14th when we sent you confirmation we offered to set up transportation for you and sent you an e-mail with contact information. 

On March 15th when you moved your reservation date, we again offered to set up transportation for you.

Then suddenly at 8:11, on Sunday night before your fishing trip the next morning, you sent an e-mail asking for transportation.  Sorry, our office closes at 7:00 and we did not receive your request.

You showed up about half an hour late.  An although it was not the fault of the crew, they kept you out the entire time to make up for the half hour. 

Fishing was slow yesterday.  I am sorry that you did not get the fish that you were looking for.

Lots of Bonito and trigger fish. We never managed to hook up with my target fish but I’ve never in my life had a crew try harder. Thanks for a memorable trip with my son.

Captain Santiago and first mate Anum were very professional. Anum is a very hard worker and had constant attention to the lines, bait, etc. We were very impressed with him. There were 4 of us, and we caught 1 white marlin, 1 wahoo and 4 mahi mahi. :)  Our trip was on May 24, 2016.

Thanks for posting the pictures.  It does look like you had a good day.

I will pass the compliments on to the crew.  They are the guys who made your charter a success!
