Captain Rick Charters arranged the transportation from our resort to the dock. The driver was there when we arrived in the lobby and the ride went well. We were quickly shown to our boat but it was not the 35’ Obsession like we booked. It was a 2 foot bigger boat that seemed a bit old but was clean and in good shape. The crew of 3 was friendly and greeted us warmly. We were out and fishing quickly. It was a bit of a tough day all in all. There were some bigger swells and waves as the wind really picked up while we were out. We did catch a few fish though. 1 small Bonita Tuna, 1 average Bonita Tuna, 1 average Barracuda, and then one 7 foot long Bullshark! That was a fun fight. The crew worked hard and jumped to the poles that instant a fish was on. All in all it was a good trip and we enjoyed our time on the water. It’s fishing, so no guarantees and some days you catch a bunch and other days you don’t.

Glad you had a good time and thanks for the compliments to the crew. 

The day you went was a little rough for kids, but most of the time, kids do just fine.

Would not recommend this boat or company.  I’ve been fishing a lot in Mexico and this was most definitely the worst time ever.  Rusty hooks.  Captain and crew not talkative.  No fish. Toilet on boat didn’t work properly and filled up with piss.

I am sorry you got sick on the boat and had to come back early.  Maybe that is coloring your opinion just a little. 

That is not the most talkative crew, but they know there stuff and how to maintain a boat and catch fish.  After they dropped you off they went back out and got a nice bonita.
