If you’re looking for a new fishing destination to explore, then Manzanillo, Mexico is worth your consideration! Captain Luis Alberto Garcia of Princess Donají has spent a big part of his life fishing, which makes him a local expert on the subject.

The nearshore and offshore waters around Las Hadas are teeming with a wide array of species and most of them are both fun and challenging to catch. Capt. Luis offers half day and full day trips, and you can take your pick, depending on what you’d like to target and how much time you’ve got.

Roosterfish, Jack Crevalle, and Barracuda are the local favorites when you’re fishing in the nearshore waters. Head a bit further out, and you enter the playground of Marlin, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and Sailfish – all the ultimate prized catches.

Your fishing platform is an 18’ Bayline walkaround, outfitted with a 115 HP Yamaha engine and all the fishing gear you’ll need on your trip. Up to 4 people can fit comfortably on the boat. With a fighting chair, live bait well, and reliable electronics, the vessel is well-equipped for different fishing conditions.

You’ll have quality rods and reels to get your prey into the boat, so you don’t have to bring your own. When you’re ready to take a break, ask your guide for snorkeling equipment and jump in to discover just how beautiful the underwater life is.

The crew will provide licenses, drinks, and snacks, and they’ll also clean and fillet everything you decide to keep at the end of your expedition. If you’re happy with the service, tips are a good way to show your appreciation.

You’re welcome to come aboard with your family and kids, as long as the little ones are 6 and older, so that they can have fun on the water. Pack some food, sunscreen, and towels, and you’re ready to head out.

New fishing adventures with Princess Donají await!

I have always liked the sea and fishing, and now that I live near the water, I'm lucky enough that I can do what I love every day. Putting all levels of anglers on good fish is my passion and I like meeting new people and teaching them some of my favorite fishing tricks. The trips I run are customer-oriented, and the ultimate goal is for them to get off my boat happy.
