Trying to be honest, so here goes... We contacted Caesar weeks in advance asking questions about what to expect. I realize its called fishing and not catching, but when askingCaesar what they had been catching his reply was "dorado (mahi mahi). I thought perfect, when we arrived. I asked again, Caesar's reply this time...snapper. I asked about the dorado, he no no they are way too small we are only catching snapper. But I had already paid the deposit. Even worse, all we did was drive the boat out to where the locals were fishing. If I wanted to bottom fish, we never would have done it. They didn't even have live bait on board, the rods were way outdated, and I found myself doing all the work. I was baiting my own line, taking the fish off. What did I pay for?? Just overfall feeling of deceit. When asking other Fishing charters about what to expect they were honest. Replying that the fishing is off for this time of year, usually we are catching ..., but not right now. This didnt happen here. Really disappointed for the amount of money we paid.

Alex, Thank you for your honest review of your experience. Our fishing tours allow our guests a full immersion of the fishing experience- from baiting to catching filleting the fish. Of course, this is not mandatory you do it all, we just know that experienced fishermen enjoy this experience. You're always welcome at anytime to tell the captain or your tour guide you wish to have assistance.
Please be aware that the catch changes frequently depending on our weather, and season. If your reservation was weeks in advanced, at that time dorado may have been in season, while during the time of your fishing experience there may be other fish available for catching.
We are sorry to hear your experience was less than satisfactory and hope you can enjoy another fishing experience in Sayulita after the rainy season (typically after October). Gracias!
