Captain Andrey is different from other captains I’ve fished with. He doesn’t sit in his ivory tower shouting instructions at his crew. He lets his crew drive and he baits up, changing tactics and trying his utmost to hook a fish. This guy is passionate about what he does and if you want to catch fish, then he will do everything he can to make sure you do. Despite catching 2 tuna and a sailfish as well as losing a marlin, he wanted to continue after the 9 hour session as the first 6 hours were fishless and the fish had just switched on.

I can’t recommend ETFishing any more highly. I’ve fished all over the world and have had some great guides, but none that wanted to catch as much as Andrey.

On another her day we would have filled the boat, but that’s fishing.

Thanks Andrey, see you next time I’m in Mexico

Captain and deckhand were knowledgable and helpful. They did everything to put fish on the boat. They stood by everything the ad said. His lovely wife was hospitable and a good cook. The captain barbequed the tuna it tasted awesome. My wife does not eat raw fish. They made italian sushimi and my wife loved it great trip worth the money

Never again!  If you envision a fishing adventure where you’re on a large boat with a rest room, and you stay relatively dry, and you catch fish…this is NOT IT!  First of all, the boat is small and only has a single motor.  It has no rest rooms (The girls were told if they needed to urinate, they would have to sit on the ladder step in the water near the engine while we were rocking back and forth). There was plenty of beer to drink but nobody wanted to drink because there was nowhere to use the rest room.  Secondly, we were entirely soaked within the first 10 minutes as you are seated in the bow of the boat as large waves of water drenched us.  Bring dry clothes to change into.  Third, we spent a great deal of time watching the captain and his mate untangle the fishing lines they crossed, only to wait even longer as they re-strung the fishing lines.  During this time, there are NO fishing lines in the water so we just sat there and watched them bicker back and forth. Six hours into this disaster, we caught a Bonito fish, which the captain released because he said he had something better for us to eat when we returned.  Although dinner was supposed to be included in the price, we returned to an empty kitchen and no mention of eating “something better,” or anything for that matter. If there were life vests on this boat, we didn’t see them and the captain never told us where we might find them.  Three years ago, I went deep sea fishing with Aqua World and it was awesome.  The Aqua World boat was large enough to accommodate 6 people plus the crew, and they were experienced fishermen. We caught 3 sailfish, 5 Tuna, and a Mako Shark. Not the case this time.  Total waste of money and time.  I learned my lesson.  I’m going back to Aqua World.

Thanks for, your great review, now I’ve got at list one single starred) yes sea was rocky, and you started with the lie that you booked a trip for 6 persons, but I don’t have option for 6, really you booked for 4 only, we went with no extra charge because you already came, I should refuse everybody to go and refund a deposit,  that was a mistake no to do it, of course you were uncomfortable.  Good to know for other customers that you asked to go back much more earlier, and refused to have a dinner also, I never have empty kitchen)  good luck next trip)

Andrey and Cesar were the best! They worked tirelessly to make sure our family had an excellent experience. We spent the entire day with them. After catching Bonitas, 2 Dorado, a black fin tuna and a 50 lb. Sail fish we were treated to a meal by Andrey and his wife. Cesar filleted our fish and they packaged them for us. We could not have asked for more.

Andrey was knowledgeable and determined. He wouldn’t stop until he got us a fish and he did. I caught a 6 ft. Sailfish and it was a fight. Great experience!

Andrey is also an amazing cook. He cleaned and grilled the sailfish for us along with chips, guac, rice, avocado and tomatoes. The best meal I had my entire trip in Cancun.

Andrey and is Mexican helper did all they could to ensure we had a catch this day, but unfortunately nothing was biting.. He offered to take us out again because we failed to get even one bite.  Which was nice,,,They both seemed to have a good understanding of the right places to fish.. nonethless we caught nothing.  Captain Andrey and his mate were not the most social guides…I had three teenage boys on the trip..they easily could have been more involved in the baiting process and letting the lines out.. but there was no interaction from the guides.. we just sat there and waited most of the day.. I had to initiate the conversation.  for an adult and serious fisherman this would have been fine trip, but for one wife and three teenage boys it was a bit of long wasted day.  prior to trip I received a variety of emails in prep for the trip. the last email included a link to the location with a pick of the beautiful home and private pier where we were to meet the captain.  When we arrived that morning the location was far from what appeared in the pic,  I would not let family out of car until I found a crew member.. the area was a bit sketchy to say the least..  I guess par for Mexico..

We cannot say enough good words about this fishing trip.  We were met on time by Andrey and his crew.  We were told that tuna and dorado were in season.  After a short run out we started trolling.  Within a half hour we caught the first fish.  My son caugh 2 dorado, his wife caught 1, my wife caught a bonito and I caught a blackfin tuna.
When we returned to shore the fish was expertly cleaned and then Andrey cooked dinner with the fresh fish.  The meal was wonderful and the end of a perfect day.  We will be back.

ET fishing gave me an experience of a life time. We were able to find the boat charter easily with the directions given to us from the captain. Once arriving to the dock, we set out to start on our trip. It didn’t take Andrey long to realize that the fishing and water conditions were not ideal and that the forecast for the following day would be optimal. He gave us the option to reschedule if we would like to fish the following day. When we returned the next day, the water was clear and the conditions were just right. Throughout the whole day, Andrey and Cesar consistently checked the lines and rebaited hooks to keep fresh bait in the water. Their diligent and hard work allowed us to have a successful day fishing, even resulting in a sailfish! I would recommend this charter service to anyone who is a beginner to an experienced fisherman. Great captain, great hospitality and a reliable, experienced crew! We will definitely be back.

This was my 7th fishing charter in Cancun and it was head and shoulders above all of the others. Andrey and Cesar are clearly passionate about fishing and intent upon doing their utmost for their guests. They are very friendly and constantly reviewing what’s happening and making changes to suit the situation. The boat is great (I much prefer centre consoles to cabin type boats), sure you’ll catch some spray if it chops up but who cares in this heat .

We had a successful trip catching a 60lb Wahoo that took 20 minutes to land, a couple of good sized Dorado which fought like hell, a Rainbow Runner and a couple of Bonito. Deep sea fishing is always a lottery, we got lucky in no small part due to Andrey and Cesar’s expertise and will to please.

I thoroughly recommend ET Fishing and will be back for another trip next year! Well done Andrey and Cesar, you deserve every success.

Thanks again,

Peter

Thanks for a great day on the water!  We were a group of six - 4 adults and 2 children - and we had a good experience.  We caught numerous Bonitos and everyone had a chance to reel in at least 2 or 3. The water was a bit rough but we made the best of it.  Overall it was a fun day and we plan to be back!

We had a great fishing trip experience with ET Fishing. We docked out mid-morning and headed for open waters with Andrey and his captain Cesar, both very experienced life long fishermen with the hopes of good times and a good catch, and the trip certainly surpassed our expectations in every level.
Soon after we got to deep sea, we started trolling and caught a beautiful 45+ pounds Mahi Mahi or “dorado”.  Mid-day we had a bit of rain and wind, but Cesar managed to glide us through it flawlessly and ended up catching two bonitos after that.
When we got back to shore the bbq was getting lit and Andrey grilled the Mahi Mahi to perfection for us. It was the most delicious thing I’ve eaten in a long time, and the fact that what we had caught a few hours earlier was now on our plates made it that more special and enjoyable. Sitting next to the ocean as we enjoyed our meal was the perfect ending to a great day.

10/10 would definitely recommended for novice and experienced fishermen alike. At the end of the day you are left with that feeling that you went out fishing and having fun with friends and that is exactly what we were looking for.

Can’t wait for the next fishing trip and also going to swim with the whale shark.

My wife and I do a lot of fishing including lakes, rivers, in- and off-shore, etc. That being said, this was one of our favorite trips. We checked out multiple sites and went for mahi, bonito, wahoo, tuna, grouper, snapper, trigger fish, and had a run in with a shark that got a bite out of a bonito. Andrey was very attentive and if we asked to move spots, change rigs, go for a different species, or even for more beer or a sandwich, he was ready and willing. The trip was a blast, but dinner made it even better. We love eating fish, but the grilled snapper, grouper, and sides that were prepared by Andrey’s wife were probably the best we’ve ever had. In conclusion, we highly recommend taking a trip with ET Fishing. They are a great group of people and fun to be around.

I recently went with ETfishing for deep sea fishing. I had an amazing time, the owner was very knowledgeable and friendly and accompanied us with the Captain on the boat. We went pretty far out where the large fish roam, we saw sharks and caught several large fish. We brought back the fish to their restaurant which has a beautiful ocean view and had the most amazing Tuna sashimi I have ever had, and a we grilled the rest of the fish. I liked that it was a smaller more intimate setting instead of a large tourist type outing. I would suggest ET Fishing to my friends and I will definitely be going with them again the next time I am in town.

Fishing on the boat in the Caribbean sea surpassed all my expectations! The final decision took us half an hour to make: after all, the waves were 1.8 meters high, it was windy and I’ve never come out into the open sea in such a boat. But my husband said that we should try in order not to regret later. And the decision was made!

A skilled captain of the boat and a fisherman Cesar made my agitated soul calm down after some minutes in the sea. On the way there a strong breeze pour over us and counter-waves drenched us with splashes. In general, any makeup and hairstyle are not needed here! My sunglasses also served as a protective mask against splashes and gave me the opportunity to observe what is happening with my eyes open.

Five rods mounted on board of the boat were hooked with exotic baits and small fishes. And then trolling begins: the boat keeps moving and the fish chooses what kind of bait to swallow. Andrey was helping us to drag out the catch. We were not the only fishermen here – there were other fishing charters and a flock of birds hunting for fish.

We spent about 6 hours in the sea, but it feels like not more than three. The time flew quickly. After the tour we had a gorgeous dinner prepared from the caught fish called «dorado». I have never eaten nothing more delicious in my life, moreover on the beach in January!

On my next vacations in Cancun I will definitely try swimming among whale sharks, snorkeling in the underwater sculpture park and maybe something else! Only with ETFishing – I trust them!

First off we didn’t catch 1 fish… I can’t really blame that on the crew, not necessarily there fault. What is there fault was a complete lack of communication and myself and my 2 sons never even touched a pole the whole day! The 3 of us sat and watched the capitan and first mate fish all day! What a bunch of crap. Why should I pay to watch people fish? Also not only did they do all the “fishing” they actually got there own fishing line tangled up in the propeller! I would not recommend to anyone. Maybe they planned to hold the poles until we got on the fish, but they should have told us that. Spend a little extra money and go to someone with more experience and people skills

Sorry Larry, but yes our customers are really holding the pole only with fish on, the other time rod holder is on duty. You can hardly find here a person more experienced than Cesar, he is doing this professionally all his life, like his father and grandfather were, at the same place. What was wrong with boat and equipment? Maybe you was not really interested in catch? Why were you spending all the time on the bow and didn’t even came to cockpit to see the lures, what we were doing to the bait and so on? By the way you are welcome to go for free the other day, because we really did not caught anything. It was the first time with us, so I decided to give all customers the second day for free in case of no catch.
