Calypso

The Calypso Super Panga is a 30ft center console with Twin 150 Mercury 4 stroke outboard engines. This gives us plenty of power and fuel capacity to target offshore pelagic fish such as Mahi Mahi, Rooster, Red Snapper, Sailfish, Wahoo, Tuna and Marlin. We support catch and release for all billfish.

Our boats are equipped with Avett, Shimano and Penn reels, 4 tuna tubes, 14 rod holders, TACO Outriggers, downrigger, GPS, Fishfinder, 2 fighting chairs, fish box to keep the fish fresh, ice cooler for drinks, comfortable, sunbathing area, iPod connector for music and marine VHF radio. Not to worry about sunny days, as we have lots of shade on board.

We are a local fishing business providing tours that include deep sea fishing, bottom fishing, inshore fishing, spear fishing, whale watching, snorkeling, Marietta islands tours. Our number one specialty tour is a day in Yelapa. This trip includes a little bit of everything - fishing, whale watching (seasonal) and snorkeling. On this excursion we allow up to 8 people. It is the perfect family day. All of our trips are private tours so you can personally chose what you would like to do. We love new adventures and showing you this beautiful bay!

Our experienced bilingual crew will make this an unforgettable experience.

    Marieta Islands are 20 miles out of Puerto Vallarta so its an adventure to get out there. On the way you spot mantas, whales, turtles, dolphins. When we get to the islands we can get off and visit the hidden beach, or as we used to know it- the Love Cave. Then we can get back on the boat and go around viewing the island. On the 2nd island we can get off and do some snorkeling; I bring everything to prepare a ceviche on board. We need fish so we can also do a bit of fishing behind the islands

    Inshore fishing - get in and out. Would you like to go out on a boat, see some of the natural beauty the bay has to offer you? This is the perfect trip, not too long, but long enough to get a feel of what this beautiful bay has to offer. The trip consists of five hours. We do a little snorkeling, whale watching and fishing (if so desired) or we can just fish for 5 hours. Sometimes I get so emotional I lose track of time and give you an extra hour. We can start from 7 am, 8am and 9 am..

I have been on a boat and on the water all of my life, but have only been in the charter business for 12 years . My passion comes from seeing a passenger on my boat with a big fat smile when they get that nice fish on board, and showing every body the beauty of banderas bay (my back yard) this for me makes me the happiest person alive !!!
