This was the most fun fishing trip that I have ever been on. There were six of us and we still each got to take a turn at bringing in the sail fish. Totally worth the cost.

We are 2 middle aged women who wanted a great day of fishing and we had an amazing day not just great :) We left Zihuatanejo peer at 7 AM hoping to catch a Roosterfish or two even though the odds were not in our favor with water temperatures. Our fishing trip was to be 6 hours and I think... More

We had a great day fishing on the Gran Jefe II. Owner Abel Cortez was easy to deal with setting up the day and Capt Enrique, with the crew, Irving and Alberto put us on some nice fish that day. Got 5 strikes and landed 3 Sails!! We released 2 fish but one really swallowed the bait and got deep-hooked... More

We went deep sea fishing when we were in Ixtapa over Christmas break. The boat left Zihuatanejo dock around 6:30am and were out there for about 4.5 hours. We caught 2 sailfish weighing about 80 pounds each!!! We even took a small piece back to the hotel to have for supper later that night and was excellent! If you love... More

This is the second time we have gone fishing with Ben's boats. Both times we have caught fish (5 in total). Captain Jose did a great job finding us fish. He was constantly checking the lines and changing the types of lures and baits for the fishing conditions. We were the only boat that day to land fish. Also we... More

We chartered a fishing boat with Big Ben's crew. Big Ben was pleasant and we just knew he could be trusted from the minute he met us on the beach; to the day after when he met us to ask how our day was. We caught a mahi mahi and 2 tuna fish. We had a sailfish on but sadly... More

We hooked on to a few sailfish and had a blast out on the water. Leo is very good at speaking english, very funny guy and a pleasure to fish with. He will help teach you... More

We fished two days with the crew and even though fishing was not good the crew worked very very hard changing baits and lures and trying anything possible to catch fish.We hooked a sail and landed a Dorado and jack.Juan spoke perfect English and did anything to make us comfortable.I would recommend them to anyone fishing Zihuatanejo.
