Surfandfishing Charters

Captain Juan Levy Ramirez invites you to join Surfandfishing Charters for a memorable offshore trip out of Puerto Escondido, Mexico. Juan has a lot of experience with big game fishing, having participated in a number of local tournaments with great success. He’ll do his best to make sure you get the fishing experience you’ve always wanted.

His boat is the Marissa II - a 26’ Super Panga that comes with a 140 HP Suzuki 4-stroke engine. There’s plenty of room on the vessel for up to four prospective anglers, so why not bring some friends along for the ride? You’ll also find a fighting chair onboard, as well as a pair of outriggers and a livewell for bait.

This part of Mexico makes for great deep sea fishing because you’ll be in deep waters pretty much as soon as you leave the dock. Some of the fish species you’ll be able to target here are Mahi Mahi, Jack Crevalle, Sailfish, Blue Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna, and so much more besides. Preserving Billfish is one thing that’s very important to Captain Juan, which is why Billfishing trips are catch and release only.

You’ll find that rods, reels, and terminal tackle are included in the price of the trip, along with complimentary drinks and snacks. Whatever you decide to keep will be cleaned and filleted after the trip for your convenience. All you need to do is pack a pair of sunglasses, some sunscreen, and get ready to hook ‘em.

Hello friends, fishing is my life is my job. I love fishing! I am the third generation of fishermen in Puerto Escondido, I followed the steps of my grandfather and father. I really liked seeing the big fish that my father fished like Marlin, Sailfish and Tuna. I wanted to be a captain like them someday and be able to entertain clients while at the same time earning a little money doing what I like. Locally, I have won 3 Marlin tournaments, 4 sailfish tournaments, and one Mahi Mahi tournament
