We met Julio right on time, and he sent us out with guide Tomas and his young assistant. The fishing was slow, but we did get four small tuna. We pulled over to snorkel in a small cove just before lunch, and it was fun. My daughter really enjoyed it, and the equipment was in good condition. It was WONDERFUL... More

Went out with my family on the fishing/snorkelling tour and I'm going to have to agree with the other poor reviews. Julio and his crew mate made no attempts to interact or converse with us, and when we tried to strike up a conversation we received very little in response. We had one bite(on the lines) the entire time, though... More

Great day with Roberto and Tomas. We combined a fishing trip with snorkelling, and then a shore lunch at Otilia's. Roberto speaks perfect english (he spent some time at school in Vancouver) and is very pleasant. We caught 5 black fin Tuna, which were prepared 4 different ways, which was plenty to eat for 4 of us.The day went really... More

We had a great time taking in the beauty of the Zihua Bay, then traveling south until we found the fish. We caught several fish, including 2 big yellow fin tuna's. Last year my Dad caught and landed a Sail Fish with Julio!! It was a beautiful and successful day of boating and fishing. Then he took us to Otilia's... More

For the last two years, a few people from our group have had the privilege to experience a guided tour with Julio. Both were wonderful tours with great sights (dolphins too!) and fish you were proud to take pictures of. We definitely enjoyed eating the catch as well. There are others offering guided tours but I would recommend Julio.

We had so much fun as this was the first time deep sea fishing for many of us on our girls trip. We can not wait to go fishing with Julio again next year!! Fishing, catching and then getting to eat your catch fresh was a wonderful experience. And to top it off we saw whales and dolphins along the... More

We for three days with Julio. He and Thomas work hard to get you into fish. I spent a couple of days going for large game and managed to land one incredible sailfish. It was an exciting twenty minutes or more of action with lots of excitement when the big fish came up to the boat. I fished for small... More

I booked the trip via email with two other people and paid $100 down payment via Paypal. This was easy and they were accommodating for us. We set up to start at 8 instead of 7. Then we were to go off shore fishing first and if we did not catch anything we would go in shore. We went out... More
