We had used Viking Fishing Charters last year and we had a fantastic experience with both Carlos and Manuel so we knew we would use them again this year.  We caught the same fish as we did last year (Yellow tailed jacks) and 1 bonita.  We were hoping to catch something huge like a sailfish but as they say, it’s called fishing, not catching!  We still had a great time and Carlos was great at switching things up.  He did a wonderful job cleaning our fish for us and he dropped us right off at the beach in front of our resort.  Would definitely recommend :)

I will say this - that no one and I mean NO ONE was catching fish the day we went out.  Captain Mike tried very hard to find us some fish and all of the fishing boats were in touch with each other and having a similiar experience.  What would I say - another day another time.  Captain Mike and his crew are awesome - just disappointed that it was not a good fishing day.  But it was a beautiful boat ride.

Manuel and Carlos were very nice. The boat was clean and they had an ice chest with drinks. My boyfriend caught two yellowtail jacks within the first 30 minutes. Both 35 or more pounds. We got out early and it seems we were one of the few boats that caught anything that day. My boyfriend was very happy with the fish and I was very happy napping on the bow of the boat. Thanks guys for a fun experience!
