Fintastic Fishing Puerto Vallarta

Fintastic Fishing Puerto Vallarta is one of the only boats where everyone can fish the whole time. It means that you can bring your friends, family, and colleagues to enjoy a fun and relaxing day on the water full of action and amazing catches.

All you have to do is hop onboard the “Stella Maris”, a recently restored 50’ Uniflite boat. She can comfortably accommodate up to 20 passengers. The Stella Maris comes powered by a 285 HP Detroit engine and is equipped with an array of professional equipment and top-notch electronics. She has a 3D fish finder, a Chirp Technology radar, a GPS, and a VHF radio. As well as that, the Stella Maris has two separate toilets for your maximum comfort on the water.

Fintastic Fishing Puerto Vallarta is a crew of professional anglers who will work hard to make sure you have a productive day on the water. The Mate will bait your hooks before you make your first cast and take care of your fish on ice when you’re done catching. You can taste it for dinner in a local restaurant later if you don’t release it.

Your day out will see you fishing the bay for anything from Snapper, Barracuda, Jack Crevalle, and Skipjack Tuna to Red Grouper, Seabass, Ladyfish, Triggerfish, Barracuda, and Spanish Mackerel. You will be bottom fishing, trolling, jigging, and drift fishing for whatever is in season and biting.

All trips come inclusive with rods, reels, tackle, and the licenses.
