Great experience! Cant wait to do it again

This was one of the best fishing experience of my life! Our captain was very knowledgeable, and spoke excellent English. (Sadly I have forgotten his name). My Boyfriend had broken his back when he was a teenager and our captain was very accommodating riding the waves very smoothly. There was no hard crashing bumps and no back issues or pain we felt or experienced later. We caught blue and yellow fin tuna, and benito. Site seeing out on the Ocean was amazing we saw a whale, a bird riding on a turtle! dolphins (right by the boat) and my boyfriends swears he saw a marlin. The price is reasonable and I highly recommend Captain Pablo's Fishing Tours, I cant wait to go again!

excellent service with knowledgeable guides

We had a fantastic three days of fishing with Capt. Pablos. Our guide Williams was very skilled and knowledgeable as well as energetic and fun. He had a great sense of humor and spoke excellent english. He put forth all the extra effort needed to exemplify great service. The fishing was excellent! Williams searched harder and drove further than other guides to put us on the fish. 15 Dorado, a giant Wahoo, and more Bonita and Spanish Mackerel than we could ship home with us. Not to mention we saw lots of whales, sea turtles, dolphins, and jumping sting rays; to round out three great days on the water. On shore, the restaurant staff at Capt. Pablos was quick and efficient and very friendly . The food was excellent. They also kindly cooked some of our fresh catch. Paul and Patricia run a fun, laid back, and professional operation in Sayulita. They can accommodate anyone whether you want surf lessons, snorkeling, marine wildlife excursions, world class fishing, or a relaxed evening at a great restaurant. We will be returning next year. fish on! Ben and Katie

Best fishing in all of Sayulita

Big Paul and his captain William sent us out first thing in the morning. We spent about a half hour catching live bait, then out to catch some fish. William gave us an option of about 10-15 different fish to catch . We decided on red snapper and Bonita. We caught way more that we could eat. I must have caught 20 red snapper just my self we also caught 2 enormous Bonita and probably a 10 pound dorado. Aside from all the fish we caught captain William made it an awesome trip,he spoke good English and was quite the comedian. When we got back to shore we picked the fish we wanted to eat(gave the rest to William and his family) and Paul had them filleted and grilled to perfection when we came back at supper time. Best fish i have ever tasted! don't waste your time going anywhere else, Captain Pablo's is where its at!!!

Awesome Las Marietas Boat Adventure

Our group of 4 rented a boat for the afternoon and Willy took us to Las Marietas to snorkel and swim. The caves were super cool and the amazing beach that you get to by swimming through a rocky arch is a must-see. Willy was so accommodating the whole time, chasing down whales every time we saw a tail or blowhole in the distance. We even ended up seeing a baby and mom whale and dolphin all swimming together, and we rolled up right alongside them so we could watch the baby jump and the mom and dolphin swim along. It was crazy. At Las Marietas he maneuvered the boat into the little nooks on the side of the island, which was really cool. The waves were much bigger on the ride back to Sayulita and he expertly steered the boat through the choppy waters. We would definitely recommend renting a boat from Pablo for the afternoon and visiting Las Marietas.

Great guides, good fishing and good prices! Let Paul's take you out, catch the bait and get you into some good fishing! Lots of whales, turtles, tuna, jackfish and Dorado! Hearing the whales singing resonate through the boat was a true highlight! See you again one day Paul!!

Great Fishing Trip

The absolutely best business to deal with in Sayulita. You're laid back approach to any of their adventures put us at ease from the second we met you. From whale watching to renting boards was easy and a bargain! Pablo or Patricia... it doesn't matter they both treated me with respect and friendliness. Will definitely be back!

It's like fishing with friends

We were looking for a day of husband and wife Panga fishing while in Sayulita and contacted Captain Pablo. Fernando started us out with some fly fishing on a nearby reef then took us further out for several hours of great action with dorado and small Bonita. Our guide helped us prepare some of our catch for transport back home to Alaska, and Pablo threw in a used cooler to boot. These folks are used to helping people make their plan happen; just ask. We would join them again in a heartbeat. Thanks Pablo and Fernando.

Would definitely go fishing again with Capitan Pablo

Great day with Willy in a rough sea. Lost a (huge) Rooster fish after 20 minutes struggle. Came back with a Jack Fish and a Bonito. Very laid back and accommodating outfit.They make sure you enjoy your day at a reasonable price.

Doesn't get much better than this!

Three times out fly fishing and one trip with the family for sight seeing and snorkeling added up to a fantastic on water experience with Captain Pablo. Guides Willie and Fernando always managed to put this stubborn "fly fishing only" old guy on fish without fail. The best two guides operating out of Sayulita no question. How do I know this? Because guides working for other companies seemed to show up when we got in to fish. Very fairly priced, clean, safe boats and even lifejackets onboard, something seldom seen in Mexico. You won't be disappointed.
