we stayed at the Sunscape Dorado resort in Ixtapa for two weeks and my son spoke to Ben on the beach the first afternoon. He arranged a fishing trip and we were not disappointed. Ben looked after everything. Taxi to the dock at Zihuatanejo, boat and captain ready to go, liquid refreshments of your choice and lets go catch fish.... More

We had a great morning fishing, snorkeling, and then eating our catch at Las Gatas with Captain Max and his boat, Black Tuna. Max speaks very good English, and his price was competitive. It's an activity not to be missed!

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

Got 5 strikes and landed 3 Sails!! We released 2 fish but one really swallowed the bait and got deep-hooked... More
