We booked Julio's tours to spend the day on the water looking for dolphins, whales and sea turtles. We spent three hours on the boat and saw dolphins and sea turtles. At the end they took us to Los Gatos beach and let us have...More

Perhaps because we only chose the snorkeling option, we did not have the 'wow' experience the others had who went for the combo tour that included fishing. I've snorkeled in Hawaii, Belize, the Philippines, and Costa Rica, and I must say, the place where Julio...More

Your review is unfair. Do you realize the day that you went fishing with Julio was the day that Zihuatanejo experienced a fog phenomenon? A phenomenon so rare that nobody has ever witnessed it before. The cold currents rolled in the middle of the day....More

Sometimes you strike out fishing and sometimes the weather doesn't cooperate. Don't miss out on what was a highlight of our trip because of one negative review. Julio and his family/crew are hard working, really good people who will treat you to a special day...More
