Super Panga Tres Estrellas

(131)
Just booked!

As Captain Gabriel Alcaraz likes to say, “Fishing is 50% luck and 50% passion.” His Super Panga Tres Estrellas has good luck. The only thing that’s missing is your passion!

The crew are all bilingual professionals who want to catch fish as much as you do. Capt. Gabriel has been mastering the waters of Puerto Vallarta for 2 decades. His professional repertoire includes the Banderas Bay and the productive fishing grounds offshore.

The local waters hold great numbers of fish all year long, although some species bite best during certain months. You will be able to get your hands on anything from Roosterfish, Jack Crevalle, Spanish Mackerel, Snapper, and Grouper to Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, Marlin, Wahoo, Tuna, and even Needlefish.

Your boat for the day will be a 27’ center console panga, built in 2011. She comes powered by twin 60 HP Yamaha engines and is outfitted with a fighting chair, snorkeling equipment, top-notch gear, and modern electronics along with tuna tubes and an icebox.

Land some of the world’s most sought-after pelagics with your fishing buddies or combine fishing and snorkeling if you plan a family outing. A day out with Super Panga Tres Estrellas is more than just fishing. The scenery is breathtaking, with birds and whales being regular visitors. The seabed is filled with sea urchins and starfish – which is especially exciting for those who want to take a dip in these prolific waters.

All trips come with the use of snorkeling equipment and fishing gear by Penn International and Shimano. You will also be provided with fluorocarbon leaders, bait, and lures, as well as licenses and a complimentary fish cleaning service. All you have to do is show up!
