Background
My husband and I are passionate about being on the water, especially with scuba diving and deep sea fishing. Along with our scuba operation business, and after chartering several fishing boats for over 10 years, finally, back in 2003, we had the opportunity to have our own fishing boat. We started chartering occasionally, mainly because it is our family boat- we use it for ourselves at least 2 times per week- we love it and keep it clean, nice and fully equipped for our own enjoyment and therefore are very happy to be able to share it with our customers. The KayKib is a very nice clean and comfortable boat for families too!!

Booked a 6 hour trip for my son and I during our port of call in Cozumel with Captain Laura.  Although she was not the Captain for our trip, Walden, along with Rigo, and Moises worked very hard to put fish on the boat.  We had a tough start with building waves and winds which made the bite slow.  The crew worked hard making sure the baits stayed fresh, trying different colors, and techniques.  We caught some nice Mahi and a real nice Sailfish, but even if we had not, I would still recommend them because they know what they are doing and keep trying their best for the customer.  Looking forward to booking again for some Wahoo and Marlin!  Thanks for a great trip!

Weather was a little rough - seas 4-5. but the crew and captain worked hard to try and get us on some fish.  We did end up boating 3 small Dorados.  Would definitely book this charter again.

Had an outstanding time. Great day on the water. We did not find a lot of fish but it had nothing to do with the crew. They were continuioisly changing bate trying from in shore to further out. We did finally hook up with a decent barrocuda which was good. The captain stayed out longer than the booked time trying to catch more just couldn’t find Moore. This is my sixth trip out from st Martin to outer Banks and I was completely satisfied with the trip.

Great trip with our kids, friendly and helpful crew and beautiful catch (3 large fishes).
The only recommendation: please make it clear since the beginning that the crew are expecting a tip, and how much it should be (in % of the total price).
It came as a surprise to us at the end of the trip - we did not expect it. I don’t mind giving the crew a tip (they well deserve it), but we were unprepared. Thanks!

This trip was as advertised. Capt. Laura emailed within a few days of booking the trip and we talked on the phone and text as the fishing day got closer. She was on time, boat was clean and ready to fish(6 rods & reels). Capt. Walbert took us fishing along with first mate Jimmy and his helper. All were courteous and friendly. They worked hard (changing bait and location numerous times) to get us hooked up on a sailfish and marlin but were not successful. We did get mahi-mahi! They provided beverages, snacks and lunch. The ONLY reason they are not getting a perfect score is because of the slow fishing that day. I look forward to fishing with them again.

  I want to say it was a beautiful day of fishing even though it was slow, of course, any day is great on the water fishing. The fishing was slow but we did get 2 Barracudas and had a sail fish hooked only to have it come off. But the guy that was manning the rod at the time said it “had some shoulders on it” meaning his words “big”.
  I would recommend this Captain and crew in a heartbeat because they never gave up, always changing baits for the full day.
Thanks again for the great day of fishing.

I took a friend out first time deep sea fishing and he loved it. The crew made sure we caught fish and had plenty to eat and drink.

Highly recommend the 33’ Kay Kib from ocean tours. Captain Carlos and Rigo are top notch crew. Got us on fish right away. Due to bad weather, us land lovers requested the head back to shore early. This was an awesome adventure.

Hey I am in Mexico and on vacation, so one mahi-mahi is cool. I really wished we all caught one. It was good for me. I know you can’t control fish, but one on a 400$ trip is tough to take. Last year we caught 3. Tik tsk I am in Mexico and loving life. The capt. and our hand did a great job. Fresh fruit and great beer.
