Captbrothersboat is currently unable to accept reservations on FishingBooker. But don't worry we've found some great alternatives for you nearby.

Captbrothersboat calls you to explore one of the world’s most beautiful bays. Home to Billfish as well as many stunning bottom fish just a stone’s throw from the glistening beaches, these waters have it all. Captain Ramon Fonseca invites you aboard to take part in unbeatable fishing, as well as the chance to see what goes on under the crystal clear waters by snorkeling. A native to the area, he knows everything there is about Banderas Bay.

Sail away aboard a beautiful 28’ Mapa center console. Her open design is ideal. Catch the ocean breeze to shield from the heat. There’s plenty of shade too, so you don’t need to worry about sunburn. If you want to catch a tan, there’s enough uncovered space to soak in the rays. With a fully functioning toilet on board, and an ice box to keep all your drinks and snacks cool, settle in for the day without a care in the world.

You’ll set off early in the morning to avoid the crowds and to get to the unspoiled fishing spots. The unsuspecting fish won’t have any idea! Head offshore and troll for magnificent Marlin and Sailfish, as well as delicious Mahi Mahi, or hit the reefs to bottom fish for stunning and tasty Grouper, Snapper, and many more. You can even try your hand at spearfishing – just let Capt. Ramon know what tickles your fancy.

When you return to shore, Capt. Ramon will clean and prepare your catch for you to take to a local restaurant to enjoy. Well, if you can handle it! You’ll be treated to a great lunch and several drinks, including beer, throughout the day. Everything is on board for a memorable occasion! Don’t forget to take advantage of the snorkeling gear aboard to make the most of your trip. Come and let Captbrothersboat show you the best of the Mexican Pacific.



About the Captain

Ramon Ernesto Fonseca Gutierrez
Nuevo Vallarta, Nayarit, Mexico
5 Customer Reviews
Member since May 2018
Captain Ramon learned to fish as soon he was old enough to hold a rod, with his father's passion being instilled into him at a young age. He says his whole family has always been full of keen anglers, and so it was only a natural step for him to follow in their footsteps. A captain for over 20 years, he's been running charters since 2014 and loves every minute of it. Every day is different, and he enjoys meeting new people on a daily basis.
