Great service; great experience.
We went fishing and whale watching with Captain Pablo on Jan 3 and had a great experience from start to finish. Patty was very responsive and helpful with planning information and our captains were also great out on the water. We saw multiple whales up close and had good luck catching a Mahi Mahi, numerous Spanish Mackerel and a big Jack fish. Back on land, their restaurant cooked us up the freshest ceviche and fish lunch you can have, and we had plenty left over for later that night. Overall, great experience and we’d definitely recommend and do it again. Thanks!

Friendly, Helpful, and Fun
I took my boys fishing with Captain Pablo's crew, and we had a great time. We caught fish, saw, dolphins, and enjoyed both rain and sun. The crew were helpful, professional, and kind. We also rented boogie boards from Captain Pablo, and they were willing to flexible with us about drop off and rental hours. I highly recommend Captain Pablo!

Great guides!
We hired Captain Pablo's for a snorkeling and fishing charter. We snorkeled a secluded reef then fished on the way home. The deckhands chummed the water with live bait. We caught five fish in an hour. The whole family enjoyed it. Highly recommended.

Caught 21 fish! What else can I say?!
We went out with two adults and four kids (9 -14) and let kids have all the fun catching. Caught a 22' beast ("jack" of some kind, can't remember) and then a bunch of Spanish Mackerel and blue runners. The crew made everything super easy and fun for the boys (and us). After we fished they filleted the fish for us while we snorkeled for a while. (We arranged this in advance. Let them know, they're happy to do it).
Later that night we made ceviche from two types of the fish and grilled one huge filet from the "jack" we caught. Amazing!
Book with Capitan Pablo while you're in Sayulita!

Great experiance, made our trip!
We cannot say enough good things about Patty and the team at Capitan Pablo's! Patty was extremely accommodating especially when my boyfriend woke up with a stomach bug the morning we were supposed to go on our fishing trip; she simply said we could go the following day and we are so happy we were able to go. Our captain was William who was extremely helpful and fun! We caught a lot of red snappers, some spanish mackerel's and plenty of trumpet and needle fish. It was our last day so we left a majority of the fish for the crew, but we enjoyed our last dinner of red snapper and fresh ceviche at home! We highly recommend a fishing trip with Capitan Pablos!

Wonderful time with Captain Pablo's Fishing Tours
My wife, son, sister in law and myself went on a fishing charter with Lalo and Willy. Had a wonderful time overall. After catching a few fish the others fell seasick and we headed back to shore. Lalo and Willy however were kind enough to bring me back out and we finished off the morning catching a couple of Bonitas and a bunch of Red Snappers. The assistants worked hard to help me keep catching fish. Brought the extended family to Captain Pablo's Restaurant to feast on our catch - had a wonderful meal and a great time. I would definitely fish once again with them.

Most noteworthy though are both Patty and Capt Pablo. Hands down the kindest most sincere folks we've meet in Sayulita. Aside from being very accommodating with booking a fishing trip, They were even willing to take a bit of time out of their day to show my family and I a potential investment property. I love the story of how they ended up in Sayulita, and I can truly see how in love they are with the town. Their hospitality is a big reason why we plan to return to Sayulita over and over again. We are definitely sold!

Great fishing trip
Our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 teens) had a great morning fishing with Captain Pablo's fishing tours. Fernando was our captain for the day and he knew the right spots to find fish. We caught 27 fish, 3 different kinds and had a great time. The red snapper was delicious!

So fun, great service, great fishing and snorkeling
I emailed these folks fairly last minute and had a boat reserved for myself and my four friends in less than a day for the next morning.
We met at the boat and immediately were greeted, they asked us what we wanted to do the most and we came up with a plan and were told what to expect. We also had a fairly tight timeline where we needed to get back and they said "no problem".
We were put maybe 20 minutes and my friend caught the first fish of the day, a beautiful - nice sized red snapper! We wanted to get going to snorkeling for the non-fishing folks - and we went to a good area near Punta de Mita where we had calm waters and did some excellent snorkeling.
We zipped back and threw a couple more lines in the water and explores the shoreline and enjoyed some zippy boating before arriving back right on time.
Throughout it all our guide, William, was awesome. He's grown up in these waters and had great info and a great instinct on where to be and when. Out first mate Lalo was fun, knowledgeable and friendly and we all conversed quite easily.
Highly recommended for the "mixed" group of fishers, non fishers and just sightseers.
Bring sunscreen and refreshments and have a great time!

Always a great trip.
Last week was my third trip with Captain Pablo's outfit. We stay in Puerto Vallarta and it is WELL worth the trip up to Sayulita to fish. About a 50 minute, 650 peso cab ride from Marina Vallarta or a 35 peso bus trip. I cab it up there to be sure I'm on time and then bus it back. I prefer to fly fish and Pablo's guides know what to do. This is certainly not flats fishing--probably there will be chumming and gaffing and a delicious fresh fish lunch involved. Last week fly fishing was not in the cards, but two Roosterfish (one 25 lb.) and numerous Toros up to 20 lb. made for a very fun day. A great adventure!
