Nuevo Vallarta Fishing – Flipper IV

Looking to spice up your next visit to Mexico? Nuevo Vallarta Fishing is here to do just that, with a variety of packages that can cater to any angler’s tastes!

The crew invites you to join them on board their 29’ Nava. She’s a center console, with a stable and dry ride and plenty of space to fish all around the deck. You can bring 5 of your fishing buddies with you, she can hold 6 anglers plus the crew.

Don’t be fooled by her length, she’s a compact waterborne predator. You can strap in a fighting chair to reel in that tough fighter or take a break under the T-top. There’s plenty of space in the livewell so you won’t run out of enticing baitfish on your trip.

You’ll go after a wide range of hard-fighting fish in the waters of Nuevo Vallarta. Shorter trips will put you inside the Bay of Banderas, one of the world’s most prolific fishing spots. Get ready to hook up Amberjack and Jack Crevalle, Roosterfish, Snappers, Groupers, and other species.

Further offshore, you’ll hunt for pelagic predators. Species like Sailfish, Blue and Striped Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna, Red Snapper, and others can all be targeted on 6-hour and 8-hour trips.

You can mix your fishing trip up with snorkeling. The crystal-clear waters are practically begging for a quick dip and the crew always carries snorkeling equipment on all trips.

We do Fishing trips and we add this boat to our fleet, but we been in business for 20 years,

Book a trip with Nuevo Vallarta Fishing today and cast off on a fishing adventure that you’ll remember for years to come!
