Valeria I

It’s time to take the family on a brilliant day out in Mexico. Spend the day with the dedicated crew of Valeria I, who will do everything they can to make sure you have an incredible trip. At the helm is Captain Jorge, an English and Spanish speaking captain who is detail-oriented – let him know what you want from your day and he’ll do everything he can to make your dreams come true.

Whether you’re spending more time fishing or are just jumping aboard to get to the beaches, the boat you’ll be on is comfortable and has enough space for 11 anglers. When fishing, 3 anglers can fish at once, or 2 can fly fish instead if they bring their own fly fishing gear. There are 6 masks and fins on board for snorkeling, and one person can spearfish. There really is something for everyone!

The 30’ boat has a multimedia system so you can blast your tunes as you travel. There’s plenty of seating for a relaxed ride out and 2 fighting chairs to help you reel in the big fish.

Some of the species you can target include Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, Yellowfin Tuna, Jack Crevalle, and plenty more. For fish that can be kept, your captain can make ceviche on board for you. Alternatively, take your catch to a local restaurant and have it cooked there, accompanied with rice and vegetables, for a small cost.

Trips with Capt. Jorge are all about you! You can do a range of activities, from touring Yelapa town and visiting the Cascade Waterfalls, to snorkeling and light fishing. Your day, your choice.

If you choose to fish, the rods and reels are provided for you. You can choose to catch the live bait yourself or purchase it from one of the other local boats, which is an experience in itself. Both options are included in the price.

You should bring along drinks on all trips, as well as sunscreen, sunglasses, a hat, and a towel if getting into the water.

Book a trip today with Valeria I for an unforgettable and fun-filled day out that your whole group will love.
