Top notch service was provided by Scooby and Eddy!! I can't wait to come back to PVR and fish with them again!! We went out to the "Rocks" and got into the Crevalle Jacks and had a blast.

Captain Cesar Perez and crew provided an excellent fishing adventure! Captain and crew were friendly and knowledgeable and the boat was meticulously maintained. I wish that I could have tipped them better! Do yourself a favor and book a minimum of a six hour trip. Any less and you're only short changing yourself.

1st trip to PV for Tuna was a huge success. A year later we decided to return and do an overnight trip so we could go further offshore and fish in areas that were less pressured by the day charters. The cost was gonna be substantially more but it was the only way to get further offshore where the local... More

Charter fishing trips are about the fish and and also about the experience. You are supposed to enjoy the trip as part of a vacation down in PV. The boat and crew of the superpanga are not at all engaging, don't work hard to catch fish, rather seem content to take you on a boat ride. The "toilets on every... More

There are only three places on the globe which have world class Black Marlin. Australia, Panama, Mexico. PV in October and November is second to none. I've made it a annual pilgrimage. Captain Steve Torres on "My Marlin" would be my first choice. He's the best live bait "slow troll" Marlin fisherman I've ever met. I just got off a... More

Great time on the My Marlin. Captain and first mate were top notch and ended up putting a nice blue on the boat.

Captain Scoobie and his first mate Toby, took us out on a 12 hour excursion on his 28' Super Panga and we had the time of our life!! We caught a 123" black Marlin, small shark, and Mahi Mahi. Not only was the fishing a great time, but the crew was a ton of fun! We would highly recommend this... More

We went out on the Animal House from Miami. We did an 8 hour excursion. We did get to the "blue water" grounds in search of the bigger fish, but nothing. The catch was not great, one needle fish and one coconut snapper. The deck hand worked hard to set up the poles and whatnot but in the end the... More

Arrived at dock and was not greeted by Captain Caesar until 15 minutes after our agreed meeting time. He did not introduce himself, not did he introduce his mate. Left docks quickly enough... told him we were not interested in trolling and this seemed to bother him. Had no gear to really do any fishing besides trolling. Luckily I brought... More

We did a 12 hour charter with Capt Victor and Ramon and had the best day. I told them I wanted to catch big fish and they worked really hard to make sure that happened. We landed a VERY nice tuna and really enjoyed our day on the boat. From the communication leading up to the trip to the crew... More
