Viking Fishing Charters - NV

Paseo De Los Cocoteros
Nuevo Vallarta NA, Mexico

Viking Fishing Charters is located on the waters of Mexico in Nuevo Vallarta. The 25 ft Mako boat can comfortably take up to 4 persons, provide them with lures, live bait, Shimano TLD and Tiagra rods and reels, refreshing drinks, and good mood.

The boat’s navigation consists of a fishfinder, Humminbird GPS, and Icom VHF Radio for an optimal fishing experience. The excellent CPR-trained crew makes sure every trip on the boat is not only fun but also perfectly safe: life jackets and a toilet are provided.

Choose between fishing inshore, targeting, Jack Crevalle, Roosterfish, Red Snapper, and Cubera Snapper, or go offshore to score Mahi Mahi, Blue Marlin, Sailfish, and many more… or just go snorkeling. The Mako has a fighting chair, Tuna tubes, outriggers and downriggers for a more comfortable fishing, so what’s more to wish for?

Whether you are a pro, a beginner, or travelling with your kids -  Viking Fishing Charters has a trip to suit your needs. Fanatical anglers would not want to pass up the chance to go to Cleofás and Marieta islands for very big fish: the boat leaves the land early in the morning and sails the waters offshore for an unforgettable experience. Families and friends could even watch whales and dolphins (not to be confused with Dolphin Fish).

Catch the fish of your lifetime and remember – no bananas on board!

Had a great morning fishing with Captain Manuel.  No big fish but lots of action… perfect trip for my 4 year old son and I.  I would fish with Viking charters again.

My wife got see sick on the way out there, so we didn’t get to fish. We were on the boat for 3 hours,  it still charged for the whole day. The boat and gear seemed great.

Although we didn’t catch this time it wasn’t through any lack of effort on the part of the captain Manuel who made every effort to put us on fish, going above and beyond.
Would certainly recommend and will book again next time we are in Vallarta.
Tight Lines!!
