“Great Day, Great Crew, A Lot of Fish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2014

A great day with a great crew. They provided the best gear, fresh bait and a lot of knowledge. We trolled and bottom fished, they kept me on fish all day and I had a blast. Highly recommended for anyone wanting to fish the blue waters of Cancun.

“Sailfish in Cancun!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2014

My wife and I had a great time with Kianah's Sportfishing. The trip was well planned and they were quick to respond to any questions we had before we arrived in Cancun. We asked to troll the whole trip and it worked out well for us, we did the 3/4 day option. We caught a few Bonito relatively quickly, and then it was slow for a few hours. After a while we caught a Wahoo, and a couple of very large Amberjacks. When we were on our way back to the dock the captain got a radio call from some other boats that some sailfish were in the area. Even though we were getting close to finishing our allotted time they took off to where the sailfish were rumored to be. We arrived and could see them out in the distance. The crew was very fast in getting lines in the water and we got hooked up pretty quickly! After about a 20 minute fight we got the fish on board! We were given the option to keep it and have it mounted, but elected to get our picture and release it for another day. By the time we got back to the dock, the crew had let us fish for about another hour longer than what we had paid for and it paid off with a great catch! Everyone from the booking side to the crew was very friendly and professional. We definitely recommend fishing with Kianah's if you are planning on fishing while in Cancun.

“Great fishing trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

Went on a 6hr trip with Kianah's on 08/12/14 with my father-in-law, brother-in-law & nephew. We booked one of the smaller boats, but because it was out of service they let us go on their larger boat for the same price as the smaller boat. We decided to troll & bottom fish. Initially we went out near Isla Mujeres to catch some bait which took a little time, but not too much. Once we had that we headed for the bigger water. Unfortunately, that made my brother-in-law & nephew sea sick. We trolled for a while before hooking up, but finally found some tuna. We ended up just trolling because we were catching fish & it made the boat less rocky. We ended up catching 10 tuna between 12-20lbs. Fun trip for my father-in-law & me. Not so much for my brother-in-law & nephew. I advise taking an anti motion sickness medicine before going out.

“Wonderful day fishing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014 via mobile

I found this charter online and we decided to book with them. The captain and deck hands were super nice guys. We probably caught 20 fish on our trip. Everyone had a great time and we will book with them again. The 8 hour trip was perfect for us. They exceeded our expectations. We hoped for a sail fish, but they weren't biting. However we did catch amberjack, benito, grouper, and trigger fish. We will use this charter again!

“FANTASTIC Trip!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

Booked a 6 hour trip for my son and I. We do a lot of fishing on the Chesapeake bay, and have fished a lot. The Captain and 2 mates worked harder than any crew I've chartered with before to put us on fish. Dolphin (Mahi), Bonito, Triggerfish, Red Snapper and a Sailfish all in a short trip. AMAZING...

If / when I return to Cancun, KIANAH's sportfising will be on our trip! ABSOLUTELY recommended 110%!!!
