We were scheduled to have the charter service’s transportation to pick us up at our hotel... More

We went for a half day fishing tour with my father, brothers and kids. We fish a single one piece (a very good one, let´s be fair on this) but the crew was uncourtious and rude, the captain was talking to other boats saying he don´t want to fish Dorados... sounds strange as we pay for fishing! They ask for... More

Our pick up was prompt and quick to the charter place. We will not hesitate to go again next time we are in Punta Cana. I will say that it... More

Had a lot of fun on this charter. Caught 13 mahi mahi, a barracuda, and a yellow finned tuna. Brought my 6 year old son and he had a blast.

Not sure what happened between the first three reviews of this place (which I based my selection of this outfitter on), and the nightmare experience we had. We were told, and it was in writing, that the maximum capacity of the boat of was fishermen and 2 spectators, or 7 altogether. Our boat had 12 people, 10 of whom were... More

Wonderful day on the water. Caught 1 blue dolphin, 2 dorado (mai mai) and 1 barracuda. Captain and the deck hand were very attentive to your needs. I will be going back and fishing again with VIP or 1st Class Fishing Linda Fonda Lake Charles, Louidsiana
