My family of 5 chartered a private boat through Bernard and had a great experience. Bernard was very responsive and flexible while we were booking the trip. The captain, Diego, and his crew were very professional, fun and worked hard to be sure we caught fish during our trip (even when the fish were not biting much on this particular morning)! The boat was clean and spacious and we had a beautiful morning on the Bay of Bandaras. We will definitely book another charter when we come to PV in the spring!

Thank you very much for your great review. We work very hard to make sure everyone has a great time.

This was a very difficult morning in particular but we were able to get a mahi mahi on the line for you.

Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you back soon.

Delightfully uncrowded trip during COVID. Bernard was very responsive to our request for a kid friendly trip. Went out early to beat the heat, our captain Pablo stopped in the Marina for some small game action for our 7 year old son. Then we went on to catch 5 Dorado! Big smiles all around :) even got to eat our catch afterward- awesome experience!

We had such a great time! The captain and crew helped us land 3 mahi at once despite a major tangle from the fish jumping around once hooked up. It was incredible how quickly the crew reacted to help us land those fish. It was a super successful day and we had a ton of fun! Bringing home lots of tasty fish to enjoy from home! Thanks Bernard and crew for such a great time!

Thank you very much for your great review. We work very hard to make sure everyone has a great time.

It was a great day out on the water.

That triple strike did create a bit of a mess and that’s when the experience comes in so everyone could land their fish.

Overall 6 mahi mahi landed makes any day out on the water a great one!

Thanks again and we hope to see you back soon.

My son (10yo) and I spent half a day on the water with Bernard and his crew in a 28' Panga. We had a blast! Each of us caught a Mahi Mahi and my son got to reel in the skip jacks for bait. Bernard is a great guide and very friendly. The crew was very positive and helpful whenever we needed it.
The ride was beautiful and the boat was in fantastic shape. Obviously well cared for and everyone appeared to really know what they were doing.
I would recommend FINtastic to anyone!
