El Amofishingpvmex2

Puerto Vallarta is one of the world’s premier destinations for saltwater fishing, for good reason. You’ll have bluewater action a short ride away from the port! Captain Erick Chavarin will put you on top of the red-hot bite in these blue waters.

You’ll head out for this angling adventure on board his 29’ Bertram. Don’t let her size fool you, she’s a mean fishing machine, capable of holding 6 anglers plus the crew. There’s a flybridge, a set of outriggers, and more – all to give you an edge when you get a strike. The entire boat has shade so you can stay on the rod all day long.

Capt. Erick will take you into the bountiful Bay of Banderas for a wide range of species. Get ready to go after Marlin, Sailfish, Roosterfish, various Snappers and Groupers, and other species – all a short boat ride away.

Anglers looking to test their fishing skills and hook up a trophy can head out into offshore waters on longer trips. The 12-hour pelagic trip is your best bet at ticking off a monster catch off your bucket list. You’ll pursue Black and Blue Marlin, torpedo-sized Yellowfin Tuna, Sailfish, Wahoo, and other species approximately 45 miles away from the coast.

The charter will provide you with 10 bottles of water, a six-pack of beer, as well as ceviche and chips on all trips. You’re free to bring whatever else you want to eat and drink.

Live bait is prepared in advance and included in the price. The crew will clean and fillet your hard-fought catch once your trip is over, don’t forget to pack a cooler.

If you’ve never fished out of Puerto Vallarta before, this is the perfect opportunity. If you have, this is your chance to one-up your previous trip. Book a trip with Capt. Erick today and embark on an unforgettable fishing excursion!

"I am the third generation of a family of fishermen. How big is the sea that I love and the emotion of fishing the smallest fish to the largest. I know different places. Going fishing for me is a way of life more than a job. That satisfaction I like to share, and I invite you to enjoy the excitement of the world of fishing!" Captain Erick Chavarin has been fishing the local area for almost 10 years now – learning where the best bite is and the tricks of the local fish. He's an avid angler and has competed in, and won, many tournaments in Puerto Vallarta.
