Unfortunately did not catch anything this time - 7 lines out and lines did not get tangled up at any time, showing to be an excellent crew, who did their best. Worth to book again.

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!

We went fishing on July 1.  It started raining, but that didn’t stop us catching our limit in the first 2 hours.  The captain and his crew worked very hard and were a lot of fun!!  After we got our limit, we were able to catch and release.  We saw a lot of dolphins our on our trip which was an extra bonus.  After we were done, they cleaned our fish and took us do a restaurant for them to cook.  It was awesome!!!  They joined us for lunch.  Next time we are in PV, we will definitely go fishing again with them.

My son and I had a great 4 hours fishing in the bay on the morning of February 7th with Captain Manuel Santana. He arranged to pick us up at the marina near our condo and while fishing was initially a little slow, before the morning was over we had both caught a fish with one being a large amberjack (yellowtail) . Captain Manuel fileted the fish and we went home with a large bag of yellowtail fillets that were delicious!

The crew members we great and very knowledgeable about their trade! Manny and his brother have been finishing for many years and by his comment, 25 years!

It was just my brother and I that rented the whole boat and we ended up each getting a fish at the same time. Both mahi mahi fish that were cut into filet and packaged in our ice chest as soon as we docked. Money well spent!

It was a first time experience for us and a lot of watching and waiting, but that’s what we had motion sickness tablets for! I’m glad it wasn’t too hot, the water was blue and the crew members doing what they love and making a little money and food on the side!

If in PV, I would hit the deep sea with the Viking again!
