My husband and I took our 3 grandkids (12-17) for their first deep sea fishing trip. We were able to reel in 1 dorado which made the trip for us. Demar and Debbie were very accommodating in taking a break from fishing and letting the kids snorkel. They were getting sea sick and this really helped with that. We would have preferred to fish longer but next time, kids stay on shore!! The father/son team crew were amazing. They worked their tail off. Will book this again.

Amazing experience with this crew, was blessed with a beautiful day and 5 catches. Captain Demar is extremely experienced and we felt great under his judgement. His wife Debbie made us the most wonderful sandwich lunch. Highly recommend this charter!!! Poverty sucks!!!

I planned on fishing at least two days while visiting Mexico and booked with Poverty sucks. Couldn’t be happier! The captain and crew were excellent and I was able to cross two new species off my list as well as a few more. Got a really nice white marlin and two big sails as well as a few dorado. I would absolutely recommend these guys. Expierieced and professional, they will put you on the fish.
I will absolutely be back again.

The captain and crew were the best. We book the 4 hour trip but wished we would have done the full day trip. We landed the biggest Barracuda I have ever seen and a nice sailfish.

Amazing experience. We booked a four hour fishing trip and it was worth every penny. The boat is big and comfortable. The captain and his crew were awesome. We caught and released a white marlin and a sail fish and kept 3 mahi mahi. They cleaned the mahi, we brought one filet back to the resort where they cooked it up for us, delicious!! The marina is in a gated community where we felt safe and the dolphin discovery cove is right there where you can watch the activities with little shops and restaurants nearby. Trip of a lifetime. Highly recommend.
