We came down for a wedding from California, and myself, my father, and father-in-law decided to take a day out with Don Chingon fishing Charters. We had an epic day the captain (Felipe) and his two deckhands were amazing! We caught so many fish, different species of fish and had a great time the whole trip. The experience was seamless from the start. I had reached out to Travis and he was exceptional with making sure everything was taken care of leading up to the trip. Explained to me in detail of how to best arrange getting to the marina and boat. In the first hour we hooked into a large white Marlin, from there on it was fish after fish. From Bonita, to amberjacks, wahoo, barracuda, grouper, and many more. The whole crew worked hard to get us on the fish and it definitely showed and payed off. We recommend taking a trip out if you ever have a chance with Don Chingon, and when we return to Cancun we will be sure to book another trip.

We had an amazing time fishing with Travis! He is originally from Texas before moving to Mexico so he speaks perfect English. He and his first mate Caesar knew the perfect spots to catch the big fish!

In our short four hour trip we went off shore (which I didn’t expect) and caught a huge Wahoo, black fin tuna, red snapper, along with trigger fish!! We caught way more then we were expecting and had so much fun!

Travis was great with communication. He kept in touch via IMessage and even let us move our fishing trip to another day that had better weather (less choppy). He was waiting for us on the dock when we arrived and was ready to go.

Travis and the mate filleted all the fish for us and gave it to the restaurant at the dock so we could eat our fresh fish for lunch. Travis and Caesar went out of their way to make sure we had an amazing experience. This fishing trip was definitely the highlight of our trip and we can’t wait to go out with Travis next time we are in Cancun!

Terrible is an understatement. First he rescheduled because the boat we booked had motor issues. Then that boat wasn't available so we moved days. The day of the trip, his ride service didn't show. After calling and texting multiple times he finally responded via text that the first vehicle had a flat and was sending a second. 10 minutes later he said that one wasn't coming either. I tried calling and he wouldn't answer, he would just text and send a location of the boat. At that point we realized this was not what we signed up for. I don't think he even owns a boat or is in Cancun. After further research, all of his stories on Instagram appear to be fake accounts. I requested my deposit back. Not surprisingly, I have never seen it.

Travis wasn’t our fishing guide he was our concierge to isla mujeres and Cancun. This man is knowledgeable on land and especially the waters around Cancun. We are definitely coming back, we nailed those fish on a short charter. Wanna give a thanks to Ceasar also, entertaining , knowledgeable and best civiche I’ve ever had. Keep killing it fellas

My wife and I had a great “first time experience” deep sea fishing with Don Chingon Charters. We were greeted promptly upon arrival by Ceasar, and hit the water immediately. After going out around 15 min, we started trolling for live bait(blue runner).

Ceasar and Travis took the time to ask for my help so I could participate in different aspects of their operation. From tugging on the line for bait and reeling them in, to showing me how to avoid a birds nest in our line.

The concept of using live bait is something I didn’t expect, simply because most charters will troll their lines in hopes of a bite. The fact that Don Chingon uses this technique is why 80% of their clients go home with a trophy.

Not even 5 minutes after we casted our lines and the fish started biting. I reeled in a monster King Mackerel at 53” and 39 lb. A new boat record!

My wife reeled in a few more fish and we had our trophies in less than 2 hours.

Travis is an awesome guide. He offered to take us to a crystal clear water beach so my wife and I could take a swim or a stroll while they prepared our lunch for us. Fresh ceviche made with a trigger fish we had caught less than an hour before. My compliments to the chef Cesar.

Afterwards, Travis gave us a little tour of his after hours office where he processes the fish that his client’s catch, while he helped me iron out the details so I could take my fish to the taxidermist.

These guys are a one stop shop. I didn’t catch the Marlin I wanted, but the charter was so much fun and such a pleasant experience, that I’m definitely coming back next year to ask Don Chingon Charters to help me grab my trophy
