Captain Cesar Dumay's Fishing and Snorkelling in Sayulita - OUR EXPERIENCE AT YOUR SERVICE! 

Captain Cesar Plascencia, born and raised here in Sayulita to a fisherman's family, has spent more days in the local Sayulita waters than anyone else.  Coming from a family of fishermen, Captain Cesar has always earned his living from the sea and looks forward to welcoming you to his boat where everyone ALWAYS has a great time and luck catching fish!

  • Mahi Mahi (Dorado)
  • Red Snapper
  • Spanish Macarel
  • Jack Crevalle
  • Pampano
  • Tuna
  • Rooster Fish

The safety of Captain Cesar Dumay's Fishing and Snorkeling boat passengers and crew is Captain Cesar's number one concern.  That is why the boat carries a radio that is always in contact with family on shore, a GPS system, flares and lifejackets for everyone.  Though never having had an accident Dumay boat trips are totally prepared should the unexpected occur.

Captain Cesar Dumay's Fishing and Snorkeling boat has been completely designed for fishing and offers:

  • Swivel chairs
  • Live baitwell
  • Comfortable cushions
  • Canopy for shade
  • Plenty of seating

Captain Cesar and crew are very experienced and know where to find the fish.  We will go out the day before and catch all the baitfish so you don't have to wait in the morning when all you want is to go fishing.  You will see for yourself just how much all of us LOVE fishing.

All equipment is provided.  We use quality rods and reels with names like Penn and Shimano.  We have light and heavy tackle. We know what to use, when and where in order to make sure you catch fish.  You can be guaranteed that if fish are in the area, you will catch them in our boat. 

Snorkeling on Captain Cesar Dumay's Fishing and Snorkeling boat is a great experience for your group or family.  We can arrange for a fishing/snorkeling combination trip or devote the entire boat to snorkeling.  All equipment is provided (spearfishing too if you prefer).  We take trips to the Marieta Islands where the fish reserve provides outstanding opportunities to see large schools of beautiful tropical fish.  The jungle scenery from the boat during the trip is outstanding.


We really look forward to welcoming you to Sayulita and on our fishing boat, The Dumays.

Awesome Service with a Smile
Cesar gave us a deal for 6 of us to go fishing. He was fair with the price and was honest when we accidentally overpaid him. He is a warm hearted person. His son (I forget his name) made the trip fun and exciting by playing music and keeping it entertaining between each of us catching some mahi mahi. Despite myself getting sea sick, I still had a blast. Seeing each of our sons catch some big fish and the smiles on their faces made it all worth it. Thank you Cesar and may the Lord Bless your family.

Caught Nothing with No Discount :(
Cesar and his crew were very kind and he even matched a price from another fishing tour, taking $70usd off. Unfortunately we were out on the water for about 5 hours and caught nothing. I know you can’t always help where the fish are, but we were given no discount for not catching anything, not getting any advertised fresh ceviche and not getting anything to take home. I was really disappointed to have to spend so much money to have missed out on 80% of what I feel we were paying for.

Couldn’t have been better.
Our family chartered 2 boats. Both boats were clean, sturdy, seaworthy, and had Suzuki outboards. Cesar and his mate David were gregarious, patient, and competent. Went 16 miles to find fish and then it was game on. Double hookups, Mahi Mahi everywhere. Several of our party had not fished before but C and D walked them thru the process skillfully. Our boat landed 12, other boat 10. Captain and mate in second boat were also very good. Great trip, would definitely charter with Cesar again.

Great day on the water catching Mahi
The two of us went out on the water with Cesar's crew and had a great day catching Mahi Mahi. The whole day was entertaining as we saw some turtles, dolphins, and got to catch about 10 fish! The crew was nice, excited and seemed just happy to be out of the water having some fun and catching fish. Great time. We kept one of our fish and brought it to a local restaurant for lunch that Cesar recommended. They made us an incredible meal and topped off the whole experience.

Fun day fishing, snorkeling and seeing dolphins!
Booked a sport fishing trip with some snorkeling for a big group of 6, who were celebrating a birthday. All of us were new to ocean/sport fishing and I felt we had a great time for being total newbies. We started the first hour catching bait, then moved on to fishing! Each of us caught a fish: two jacks, a rooster, a needlenose, a skipjack and a grouper. Snorkeling was fun, and on our way to the snorkeling spot, we saw dolphins and the crew slowed down so we could see them jump and play. The crew cleaned our edible fish for us, and we took them home to the house we were renting and had some delicious meals with them! Totally would recommend.

Great Day On The Water
Spent the morning with Capt. Pato and Layo fishing for Mahi Mahi. We had a group of guys ranging in experience level and Capt. Pato set us up with a range of tackle to make it fun for everyone/challenging. Cesar was extremely responsive to email/WhatsApp. Would definitely book again.
