Fished late Feb - just the start of sailfishing season.
Booked the 8 hr trip - any shorter makes it tough to reach the sailfish grounds and that's what we were there for.
We caught multiple sails and we lost a few too. Caught hundreds of pounds of amberjack on the way back in and my wife even got a large red snapper our chef at our resort prepared for us that night!
Saw a lot of other boats around but few people in the chairs. We routinely had 2 sails on at a time. At one time, we had 5 jacks on and the capt had one from the flying bridge!
The crew is on the quiet side - friendly but language is an issue for long conversations. They speak enough English and we enough Spanish to get ideas across.
Food is sandwiches and snacks, plenty of water, beer, and soda.
Tackle is modern and well-maintained, professional grade.
Advice - use Scoplamine if you're not used to offshore fishing. The seas were constantly changing from glassy to 4-5 ft swells while we were out.
But go with these guys - they really know their stuff!

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.

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!!

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.
