My wife and I wanted to pass along a big "Thanks" to Capt Jeff, Pedro, and the rest of the people on this board for recommending the fish/snorkle/beach bbq with Capt Bicho. Pedro, I don't know if you remember but we ran into you and Charlie at Fido's last Wednesday evening.

This was our second trip to San Pedro this year, and this was yet another great tour that we would highly recommend to others (we've previously done cave tubing, manatees, and snorkling at Hol Chan & Mexico Rocks). We split the boat with another couple we met at our resort, and went out last Monday. We all saw a lot of action, and had a wonderful day. We caught four different types of snapper, grouper, trigger fish, jack, 'cuda, and more. I'll go ahead and admit that the ladies out caught the guys on the boat - they must have had beginners luck! We snorkled Hol Chan/Shark Ray to conclude our day.

From an experience standpoint you can't beat it - some fishing, GREAT lunch (we found out Bicho used to be a cook), and snorkling in perhaps one of the best spots in the Caribbean. We dove down with Bicho's son for some conch, and later watched his son dive down to get a couple lobsters for lunch.

From a cost standpoint in our opinion this was the best dollar for dollar tour we've been on.

So if anyone is looking for a great experience and/or looking for a day trip but on a budget, this is certainly one worth doing.

For those of you interested in booking a day with Bicho check out fishingsanpedro.com.

I'll second Jamblu's enthusiastic review for Captain Bicho. My wife and I were the "other couple" that went and it was my wife's first time to go salt water fishing. Like Jamblu mentioned, the wives caught all the fish.

One thing I liked about the trip was if we parked in a spot and the fish weren't biting, Bicho was pretty quick to move on. No waiting around and he seemed to know his spots.
