“From the moment we left the dock the crew really took care of us and went out of their way to make sure we had a great trip. The crew worked extremely hard to find the fish, and when they did, they were all over it – the fish didn’t stand a chance. The boat was excellent, very comfortable, and was equipped with everything we needed for a great fishing experience."
Peter Pobjoy
"Our offshore, overnight charter on Bongos was awesome. Captain Ben and second Cameron are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. There's never a guarantee offshore fishing, these guys never give up and make it happen. Very helpful with the kids too. Great boat, great people, great times! Bongos!"
John Batchelor
"I have been fishing with Bongos since 2008. I have fished on many charter boats in the U.S. and Mexico and Bongos is by far the best. They have expert professional captains, great deckhands, and all the best gear. Bongos is committed to providing their customers with a first class fishing experience. They are also very family friendly and spend time with children teaching them the basics of fishing and helping them land big ones. I recommend Bongos to everyone who wants a first class deep sea fishing experience, whether novice or advanced."
