    I’ve always wanted to catch a tarpon on the fly. It’s been on my bucket list for years, so when we planned our trip to Cancun, I look for an opportunity after booking the trip I was obviously excited to get the chance to fill one of the things on my bucket list, however, when I didn’t plan on, was getting very sick, just a few hours before Orlando, my guide was picking me up. As bad as I felt, I went and waited in the lobby for him to arrive. He had to go through a lot of trouble to get through security, but when I met him, he was all smiles. As we rode through the city to his boat I didn’t say a word, because I felt so ill, and after loading the boat and headed out under the water, it was only a matter of moments before he put me on fish, in my weakened state, I could barely throw the fly. However, he kept pointing out fish after fish, and after a few times resting, I finally filled that bucket list. Orlando was so patient with me and very generous. Not only was he an excellent guide he was a very, very good guy. I hope one day I can go back and fish with him again when I feel better Orlando worked very hard to get me on fish , and if I felt better, I’m sure I would’ve caught several more. We did catch more than that one but because I was so sick I laid in the bottom of the boat mostly. It wouldn’t have mattered if we didn’t catch fish I think I would’ve enjoyed spending the time on the water with Orlando. he genuinely wants you to catch fish. In my second state, he couldn’t tell how excited I was but I could sure tell how excited he was. Thanks again Orlando!! Tight lines!!!

    We had a great experience with Captain Miguel and crew on the Christine 1. Prompt departure with all the gear ready to go. We caught bait fish to start and then tried our luck for larger species. At one point there were 4 of our group members reeling in a catch! Water, soda and beer were included. There was a bathroom available and a nice covered area to stay out of the sun. Captain Travis was also prompt in communications prior to the trip to confirm details and provide instructions for our outing. I would highly recommend and hope to return for another trip in the future for a trophy catch!

    The trip was amazing. They don’t lie when they say you don’t come in unless you catch a fish. I took my 8 year old. We trolled deep see for 5 hrs had 2 separate 100 to 150lb sailfish attacking the bait. Unfortunately no hook set but no worries. Travis and the guys took us closer inshore for an hour on the way back and my son reeled in 2 big triggerfish 2 yellow snapper a barracuda and an amberjack. So finishing stony with 6 fish and seeing the two sailfish chasing the bait was awesome. Not to mention your catching live bait pretty much the whole time.

    I highly recommend Orlando. The communication before the trip was great and he went the extra miles (literally) to pick me and drop me off at my hotel so I didn't have to mess around with early morning taxi or Uber. Fishing was tough but we got some baby tarpon on fly and when conditions weren't suitable for fly rod we switches to spinning rod and caught more. Also got to see some remote backwater and the resident crocodiles. Made you think twice before putting hand in water to retrieve a snagged fly!

    FIVE STARS AMAZING! I booked my first every deep sea fishing guide for myself and two other fishing experts so the pressure was on and I had no idea what I was doing. Luckily Captain Experience was so easy, the selection was great, the signup process through to the day of instructions and QR code was a breeze. We had the most amazing time! I got the impression we received special treatment from the crew by booking through Caption Experience. I will 100% use this service again, no stress and a guaranteed great time. Thank you all so much for all your help, it was a fantastic day I wont soon forget. Can't wait to book another trip!

    The trip itself with my guides was more than I could have hoped for. Not only were they extremely helpful, put us on fish, and instructed well, but they even took pictures for us, gave us a history of the Tulum Ruins and gave us a little snorkeling adventure with stingrays and sea turtles. This entire part was a 5/5 stars. The disappointing part 1/5 stars was the whole reason I booked through Capt. Experiences. According to the booking through this website the total trip was supposed to be $650. I paid "$97" through the website for a deposit. That came out to $130 on my credit card. When I showed up, I still had to pay the full "$650.00" in order to go on the trip, thinking that deposit was more of a holding fee like a deposit on a rental car. Nope, that was also added to the price, now I'm at $750 for this trip. The QR code that was supplied to me to pay the rest. The gentleman at the desk said he doesn't need that. I explained the deposit situation and he insisted his price was correct. Cool, way to vet the companies Capt. Experiences. Now for the Icing on the cake. When I went to the actual company webpage for Mexidivers the same trip costs $550! So, you have guarantied that I will never use this service again and let others know of my experience of being ripped off, from a company that says they find the best which would include not getting ripped off. I get paying more as paying more, you're cost being $650, I was ok with that, even though $100 for your service was a bit steep, but hey, you guaranty the companies are vetted and only the best. That should be worth something. But, Oh wait, I still got ripped off. Never again. Total waste of time and money.

    If I could give more stars a would. Ramon and Diego were amazing and I would love to go back we caught six barracuda and almost had an El Dorado but I lost it right at the end.

    This was our first ever fishing trip and we had an amazing time. Captain Eddy made sure all our needs were met, and the crew Julio and Jose were so encouraging and enthusiastic. We caught several fish right away and were able to enjoy fresh tuna sashimi that the crew prepared from what we caught. We went further out and had the awesome experience of catching a striper marlin! We saw whales and also fed seals right off of the boat. The Big Papi crew made our experience truly unforgettable and we can’t wait to go back and do it again!

    Out of the dozens of sportfishing trips I've taken in my life, this one stands out as the best I've ever been on. The trip that Orlando designed for my dad and I was the true definition of backcountry fishing. Orlando offers less intense trips than the one we went on, so let me tell you, if you aren't prepared to be hours away from cell service and even farther from the closest road, tell Orlando to design a more suitable trip for you. Orlando speaks enough English to communicate the basic fishing and directional concepts, so a decent understanding of conversational Spanish will serve you very well here, especially on the more adventurous trips. Orlando picked us up from the hotel zone in Cancún and took us north on dirt roads towards Isla Blanca, about 45 mins to an hour outside of Cancún. We loaded up in his panga and took off further north towards the numerous mangrove-covered cays that spot the area. Orlando navigated us through sandbars and mangrove canopies to warm up in an open lagoon area, and we instantly got on the baby tarpon bite. I had some good eats and runs but was unable to land anything, which was completely my fault. My dad isn't much of a fly angler so Orlando rigged him up on a spinning rig and he had minor success (again, his fault, not the guide's). After we were nice and amped up, Orlando ran us further north another hour and a half at least, and this is where the real fun began. We enjoyed some delicious turkey, cheddar and jalapeño sandwiches Orlando brought on the way. Once we arrived to our next spot, we navigated through a seemingly endless maze of mangrove canopies which opened up to small ponds where we had more shots at tarpon. You must be very accurate with a fly to be successful here (I wasn't), but it was incredible nonetheless. The ability of Orlando to navigate through these mangrove-canopied channels in his panga, sometimes only a couple feet wide, was unreal. He knows this area like the back of his hand. As the Yucatán sun beat down on us, we opted to head in. Orlando was just as glad to stay out, but we were gassed. We kept cruising through the mangrove forests and got to experience first hand the incredible biodiversity of that environment. Highlight of the trip: on the return, Orlando pointed out a structure arising from the jungle on the mainland, and my adventure senses started tingling. He parked up on the beach, and we embarked into the jungle like conquistadors. The structure we came upon was Boca Iglesia, the first church built in Central America in the early 1500's. The closest road to Boca Iglesia is hours by boat, and days by jungle. This archeological site is completely abandoned, and exploring it was truly a once in a lifetime experience. If you're looking for a true "on the edge" adventure, then look no further. If you have a satellite phone, or a GPS tracker, I would bring either (or both) if you want to go on the same trip we went on. It was by far the most rigorous and off-the-beaten-path fishing trips I've been on. Nothing else comes close. This is not a trip you want to go with just any guide, but I trusted Orlando the entire time, and cannot wait to go with him again.

    Highly recommend Blue Sky Cabo charter. Everything was explained very well by the owner in an email before the trip (where to go, what to bring) and ended up catching a trophy Mahi! Had the fish cooked fresh at Alexander’s 4 different ways at the marina afterwards. Capt. Julio and Jorge have been fishing these waters for over 20 years and are very knowledgeable. We will be booking again very soon for marlin season. Thank you again!

    Another great Captain Experiences trip in the books! While the seasonal timing wasn't the best, Blue Sky Cabo was top notch as always and very up front about catch expectations. The crew worked tirelessly to put us on some fish and succeeded in getting us in some Dorado. This was a family trip aimed at exposing fishing newbies to the experience and spending time together on the water. Success all around! As the saying goes, "There is no such thing as a bad fishing day". Huge shoutout to Blue Sky Cabo and their impeccable crew, equipment, and service. This was my second trip with Blue Sky, and I will definitely be back!!!

    These guys are awesome! You wont find a more professional operation in Tulum. They picked us up from our hotel, made sure we were prepped with sunscreen and everything else we needed to get out there, and had water, soda, and beer on board in pre-stocked coolers for us. Each boat had a captain and a mate who worked hard together to put us on the fish, and between the 3 boats our group took out we caught a bunch of mahi and the biggest barracuda Ive ever seen. -Attison from Captain Experiences

    Captain Francisco was ON FIRE 🔥 He brought such a positive energy to our trip. We got zero fish on another boat our first day out, and Francisco guaranteed us fish. We saw dolphins and whales. Not a moment was wasted. He knew where to find the catch of the season. He connected us with a wonderful local man who cleaned, filleted, packed, and froze our fish for the trip home. I trust him. Very professional and took care of our transport in the morning and the fishing license.

    Where do I begin…AMAZING! From the moment we boarded it was 5 star. Captain David was a true pro and the guides were talented, friendly, and made the whole experience next level. I’ll never forget my day with Blue Sky Cabo! Shark ✔️ Marlin ✔️ & we got to meet a sea lion. Not to forget the countless dolphins putting on a show and a breathtaking whale breach. Exceptional. Highly recommended.

    Captain Casey was very professional and knowledgeable. His 2 crew were very experienced, and his boat is a fishing machine. On our full day charter we experienced bad weather and had to cut the trip short. A minor leak in a tranny hose kept us from traveling at full speed on our return to the marina, so it took a little longer than expected. Casey offered us a free half day trip the following day, which i thought was a very professional way to handle this. Based on our short time in Cabo we couldnt take him up on this, so he reduced my fee to a half day charter. Again a very professional way to handle this. We didnt catch the fish we hoped for, but i have no issues with booking with Casey on my next trip to Cabo.

    Having fished all over North America, I can say without a doubt that this was the easiest & most successful fishing venture I've ever been on! The awesome staff at Captain Experiences helped me understand which charter out of Cabo would be best for my group, and Captain Raul & his team led by Captain Pepe over delivered! We caught plenty of fish including some massive yellowtails, spent the sunrise watching enormous whales breach the surface, and wrapped up the day with some fresh sashimi from our catch. We had first-time fishers and lifelong anglers on the boat and everyone left in fantastic spirits! Looking forward to doing it all again on our next trip to Cabo!

    Our group of four had a blast! We caught three large Mahi Mahi and the guys were nice enough to fillet them for us to take home. After fishing, we stopped for a snorkel break where we swam with sting rays and sea turtles. I recommend these guys to anyone looking for a quality, affordable fishing trip out of the heart of Tulum! I wish I had more time in Tulum to use them for other outings.
