Vallarta Fishing Machine–Seawolf II

Vallarta Fishing Machine offers a variety of exciting fishing opportunities in the famous waters of Puerto Vallarta. Explore the local bays in search of Roosterfish and Jack Crevalle. Hit the reefs to pull in tasty Snappers. Head offshore for Marlin, Sailfish, Tuna, and more. Whatever you do, you’ll be fishing with a local team who will stop at nothing to get you on a winner.

Spend the day aboard the “Seawolf II”. This 38’ Mediterranean Yachts boat has room for six anglers to fish at once and can host even more if fishing isn’t a priority. She has GPS and fishfinder to get you locked on the biggest catch and a fighting chair to bring your fish in once you find it. She also has a livewell and tuna tubes so your baits stay fresh, however big they are.

But this isn’t some stripped-back super panga. The Seawolf II features everything you would expect of a full-sized cruiser. Her air-conditioned interior boasts a full bathroom, galley, salon, and comfortable cabins. Her large flybridge offers masses of space to take in the view while her front deck makes for the perfect sunbathing spot. In short, she has it all.

Not that you’ll notice any of this once the fishing gets started. Longer trips will see you heading out of Banderas Bay to incredible bluewater battlegrounds like El Banco. These waters are home to Blue, Black, and Striped Marlin, Yellowfin and Albacore Tuna, and so much more. Even on half days, you’ll have plenty of Roosterfish and Jacks to keep you busy!

At the end of your trip, all your catch will be cleaned and filleted, and you can take away as much as you like. All tackle, bait, lures, and licenses are included, so all you need to do is show up and enjoy! Just pack your camera, sun protection, and any food and drink you want for the day, and get ready for some truly epic sportfishing!
