My husband and I are cruising on the Norwegian Star to the Mexican Riviera 4/30/05. Three Sport/Deep Sea fising excursions are offered throught the ship in: Acapulco, Ixtapa and Cabo. Has anyone out there done any of these excursions and what was your experience? Is this a good time of year for fish in these areas, etc.? My husband would like to do two of the trips so your suggestions would be most appreciated.
Hello Sharps, my husband is a big fisherman and he says Acapulco is great fishing this time of year, matter of fact all your ports are great fishing ports, and this is definatly sport fishing season. My husband also went through the cruise line excursion, he caught a 6ft. Dorado. Go for it and have a great time, just remember to take a camera to take a picture of your catch as they will not allow you to bring it back on the ship.
We have been on the Norwegian Star for that cruise and loved it. My husband has been fishing on different tours at CABO, Matzalan, Manzinillo (sp) and has never caught anything but has always had a fantastic time and enjoyed the company of the other passengers which he did not know at the start of the tour, but felt he had made some great friend and the end of them.
