Biggest Mahi-Mahi I ever imagined to catch. I'd like to thanks captain Jason for this amazing tour with my family. If you are looking to do something more exciting than sightseeing, I'd recommend the Sportfishing+Snorkeling tour by Jason Tours.

Fishing in this area is an awesome experience. There are several guide services that you can hire. Sport fishing or trolling around the island off the coast, both a great time.

Fished with Martin and Pablo of Sea Kayak adventures with my son. They were very helpful and we enjoyed their two man kayak approach. Great value, very friendly and fun. Caught fish every day although missed a bunch of big ones but that's fishing.

Some people in our group decided to go fishing. During their trip, they saw dolphins, sea turtles and they even caught a 16 lb mahi mahi which we had for lunch and dinner. Fantastic!

I dont know where else in the world you can do deep sea fishing with a knowledgeable local for $35 a person. Not only that, but they will fillet and clean any fish you catch and send you on your way. A must do. Not...More
