Tuna Fish Sportfishing Reviews

I´d say it was a big success. Romario was awesome to fish with. He treated us well. We caught a beautiful Sailfish around 110lbs, lost a black Marlin around 250lbs, and hooked a nice Mahi . Once we got our to fishing grounds, it was definitely too rough for kids…but they got through it. They had a nice mattress for the kids to rest, when the waves were rocking. I wouln´t take my kids that far out again…just adults. Aside from sea sickness. It was a wonderful day. Boat was nice and clean. Food and drinks were great. Romario & Max put us on fish. Thank you!

We took the Freedom II boat out for fishing and a BBQ. It was so much more than we expected. We caught black tuna and groupers, but even more amazing was the beach and BBQ. We had a private beach and a home cooked BBQ. These guys made us feel like friends/family. Awesome experience.

The Crew was wonderful. Friendly and accommodating. We saw Humpback Whales, turtles, porpoises, dolphins, flying fish on the way out to the fishing grounds! Caught 6 Mahi Mahi and 2 Yellowfin plus had a 10 minute fight with a Marlin but lost that battle :). Lunch and snacks were great plus we got to have a quick swim in a private bay and a tour of the shoreline on the way home. Highly recommend !

Booked a full day offshore trip February 6th on the Tuna Fish boat and had an awesome adventure. We caught 7 big bull mahi-mahi and in addition to the fishing we saw humpback whales, numerous giant sea turtles, hundreds of dolphins, and thousands of jumping Devil Rays. The captain and 1st mate were great! We had such a blast that we booked another half day inshore trip 2 days later with them and caught bonitos and a bunch of small red snapper. These guys worked to put us on the fish and it paid off!!!

Had a nice fishing trip with Max and Jose. Jose worked very hard continually changing bates to give us the best chance to catch fish. We caught 3 Mahi Mahi and had numerous other hits. We also had a Sailfish hit a bate but lost him. Highlight of the trip was when my 12 year old Grandson had a Marlin on that Jose thought was over 200 pounds. We also saw Whales and numerous Dolphins. Max and Jose recommended taking our catch to the Monkey Bar for they to cook for us which we did. Highly recommend !! Great experience!
