“Amazing day fishing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2015

We landed 5 sailfish! these guys are awesome, friendly, hardworking and knowledgeable, they provided food, drinks(water,soda & beer). Everyone in out group of 4 landed a sailfish + a lot of other smaller fish can't remember all the names of the smaller fish. These guys take pride in their job and boat someone was always asking if we wanted a drink or food and after every fish we landed if there was any mess one of them was sure to clean it.

“Best fishing trip ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2015

Nothing better than landing a sailfish right! Try doing it five times on one trip! These guys were awesome getting us right out where the sails were biting! Had two lines with sails on most of the time! It was a frenzy ! Then to top it all off, we stopped at another of their fishing holes to land grouper, red snapper, mackerel and lots of jacks! These guys know how to find fish! Can't say enough good things about them! When in Cancun, be sure to hook up with them if you want the best fishing trip ever!!

“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.
