We met Big Ben while staying at the Dorado Pacifico in Ixtapa, Mexico. I was talking to someone on the beach about fishing, and they suggested I talk with Big Ben. Big Ben is a very friendly and genuine person. I told him that I wanted to plan a snorkeling and fishing trip for two families (10 people). I said... More

Vamonos 3 .We chartered the Vamanos 3 on April 4th, 2017 after numerous attempts to obtain a boat with good reviews. It appeared that only this boat was available on short notice.

Booked fishing excursion with Ben on beach at Dorado Pacifico. He told us they'd pick us up at 6 am and we'd fish until 2 pm, that there would be drinks and lunch, and if there was time we could go snorkeling. Well, we saw a beautiful sunrise and dolphins. We didn't have much luck fishing, 1 sailfish that got... More

During a recent stay in Zihuatanejo I spent two days fishing on the Duquesa with mates Juan and Chi. This is a professional organisation. They were friendly and hard working. I was very happy to catch sail fish on both days and appreciated the fact that they encourage catch and release. This may be one of the higher prices charters... More
