The boat is in sad shape. It is not in the condition that the pictures show or the review of the boat. The ladder going to the bridge is falling off and is only held up by rope. The interior of the cabin is falling apart and there is no air conditioning like it says. We had 5 people on the boat and it was pretty much maxed out with the two crew members plus the captain. The girls went with us because it said that there was air conditioning but it did not work. This boat was a waste of money. We were out for 8 hours and only caught 5 barracudas and 4 Trigger fish between 3 of us fishing. So it was not a good day at all. I wasted the money on this boat and will never use them again. Learn from me don’t use this place.

i apologyze for your apreciation, we really try to keep theme in the best shape possible and we work very hard for it, is not that easy when you have all this boats working daily, but we really try.
about the fishing unfortunately we cant manage what youre going to catch… the crew works very hard to take you to the point and try to make you have a good time, im so sorry to hear that you have those feelings just because that was a bad day, it usually happens… im sorry that it happens to you.. the a/c is working and we have no more ropes on the ladder, i hope we can compensate you on your next visit!
thanks you for your comments that makes us improve our service!

We paid to go on the Sea Senora boat. We had been on that boat 3 times before. We were told on the morning of the trip that the Sea Senora was not available but they brought a different boat with a different crew. We paid for the 6 hour trip and we left the dock at 8:00 AM. We started fishing at 9:00 and caught about 10 bonita, bait fish, until 12;00 PM. then we went bottom fishing for “eating fish” like Snapper, tuna and grouper. at 12:50, the mate told us that the trip was over. So, for my 740 dollars, we got to fish for “real fish” for 50 minutes. Total rip off. the captain should not have spent to long having us catch bonita (which are unedible” and more time catching good fish. they were told we wanted to bottom fish for Snapper, grouper and tuna yet we spent most of the trip trolling for Bonita which the boat can use as bait at a later time. The boat was fine and the captain and crew were nice but they were concerned about getting back on time more than making sure we had a good time.

Had a great time.  I work as a mate in the summer.    So I know !!!  Could use some better equipment.  But.  It all worked. !!!!  And we caught fish. 
If you fish.  You know.  They call it fishing for a reason.  I think our trip went well!!!  Caught 5.  2 cow Mahi 1 bull. 1 wahoo. 1 white Marlin. 
Was a good day!
Use a fishing calendar when booking if you looking for a certain fish. 
Also summer months it rains a lot so your trip might get canceled

Boat: 1996 immaculate perfect layout for a 33. We did not run a/c so I cannot comment.  Head immaculate for 96 charter.  Capt Luis is a pro with Julio as finest first mate I’ve seen.  I recommend this for everyone, but this operation will impress those who own their own boats in other ports. Equip is beautifully maintained and no reused leader on board. 100lb test when need. Capt constantly calling in reset if bait gets a little worn or wonky.  Enjoyed Julio and felt like went to knot school. I would like to add that these are good, honest, smart, thoughtful men who genuinely want you to have whatever experience you are looking for.  It will be the best day of your vacation.  Daphne at the marina in booking is great. The management is not.  Kind of jerks no smiling. Chac chi management and higher uniformed people were not good. - the marina has no breakfast options and lunches are meager and no place to buy anything else and they seem surprised as every fisherman who walked in said where can I get muffin or anything.  Bring your own or buy 2 lunches for each person ans share granola bars with crew. .
Buy the photos the nice photographer took, grab a beer, a take your mahi mahi filets back to your hotel (Chac chi private drivers were good) and let Capt Luis and FM Julio be the best representatives of this entire outfit.

The only negative was the crew didn’t speak a ton of English so it was hard to interact and joke and learn. But they were very professional, hardworking, and knowledgeable about what the best plan of attack was.

Hey Guys
Thanks so much for the great fishing. The Big Bite Team really gave me 3 great days of fishing. The Mahai Mahai were really fighting good. Even through we ran out of bait on the second day early, it just showed how good we were on fish. The 82” sail fish we got on the second day was the highlight of the trip. What a great fight. What a great fish to catch and release. My Gopro on my hat really captured some really good fights to show off. below is the link in YouTube before the fish was returned into the water

I chartered a boat for my son, wife and myself with Cancun Charters at Marina Chac Chi. The fishing and the service were better than any of my previous 5 deep sea trips in Cancun. The captain and 1st mate were incredible, they worked non stop for 8 hours to catch fish. We had an amazing day! The catch included 10 tuna, 10 bonita, a 20 lb dog snapper, 25 red snapper, 12 trigger fish, a 44 inch barracuda, and an 80 inch SAILFISH!!! The name of the boat was Happy Ours, the captain was Jorge and the 1st mate was Crystal. I would highly recommend this company, this boat and crew to everyone interesting in a great day at sea

This was an absolutely great experience!  We booked the trip online.  Pickup and payment was seamless upon our arrival.  Captain and crew were not only spectacular as far as service goes, but they were amazing fisherman!  Boat fit our group of 6 comfortably.  6 hour fishing trip caught 12 fish, including a 7.5 ft sailfish.  At the end of the trip, the cook your catch was excellent.  Can’t wait to do it all again!!

The fishing experience was fantastic. The Captain, Pepe, and the deckhands Juan and Oliver were fantastic. The only issue we had was the unknown of what happened to our fish. We were under the impression the fish was being sent to be mounted, but come to find out, only the specs and no pictures. We have been working with Gray Taxidermy to resolve the issue, but the details should have been more clear when deciding whether to mount the catch or not.

Went fishing on Friday, July 24, 2015

My son, Henry, and I wanted to go deep sea fishing , we got a recommendation from the concierge at the Nizuc hotel and booked. It was a shared trip with 3 others, a young lad from the U.S. , an ex US navy engineer and a Mexican who worked in Cancun. All with varying levels of experience , the ex Naval engineer was super keen and had done it many times before, it was Henry and My first time.( but of course now we both talk about it like old hands) We draw straws to see the order of taking the rod once a strike had occurred, I was number 5 , Henry number 3.
We set off , after about an hour, out of sight of land about 18 miles out we put out the lures and went trawling , after a long 15 minutes they started to bite and soon we had all had at least two hauls, Mahi Mahi and Bonita, reeling them in from the bosuns chair each time. We saw some sail fish approach but unfortunately they didn’t bite. The crew were great knew what to do and when, were constantly preparing and cleaning , offering drinks and making sure we were well catered for.
Then we moved onto some deeper fishing, about 60 meters down looking for bigger fish and using some of our earlier catch for bait. It was obvious given the very large hooks, the wire tracers and the huge chunks of fish attached to them that this was not a meal for anything small.
The first few strikes were Snapper and Red snapper , the catch of the day a 60lbs Grouper.
Great day, really good company, fun to talk to others from different backgrounds and countries and everyone very happy. Importantly the crew made it easy, made us feel like experts and regardless of experience made it fun and exciting for everyone.
It was a good father and son bonding opportunity, worked really well.
We will definitely do this again and not hesitate to go back to the same boat given the chance.
P.s. I caught the Grouper!
