Contender Sports Fishing II

Based out of beautiful Puerto Vallarta, Contender Sports Fishing has the open seas at its mercy. Running trips on the famous Bay of Banderas or up to 60 miles out into the Pacific, there’s no end to the fishing opportunities on offer. Captain and his crew have over 30 years of experience fishing these fruitful waters, so get ready for a productive day on board. They’ll do everything to help you relax and get the most out of your fishing experience.

This 30’ Nava center console has everything you need for a great day of fishing. Purpose-built, you’ll have a perfect vision of the clear blue waters, and plenty of room to steady as you reel in a big one. Whizz off to the deepest waters thanks to the twin 115 HP Mercury engines and sit back, relax, and take in the rays before springing into some serious fishing action. With a multimedia system on board, you can even blast out your favorite tunes.

Hit the reefs of the Bay of Banderas on 4 and 6-hour trips, or head further offshore on longer ones. Wherever you go, you’re in for a fishing extravaganza. Nearshore, Jack Crevalles, and Roosterfish will give you a run for your money as you try to reel ‘em in, while big game fish await offshore. From monstrous Marlin and stunning Sailfish to delicious Mahi Mahi and huge Tunas, you’re in for a fun day of battling it out with these beasts.

Take advantage of the snorkeling equipment on board to cool off. Swim with the tropical fish and see a whole new world around you. All the family is welcome, so settle in for an unforgettable day on the water! All the edible fish caught will be prepared on your way back to the marina so your big day can continue at a local restaurant. Contender Sports Fishing is calling your name, so come aboard and make the most of Mexico’s Pacific coast.

Please make sure that you only pay the captain at the dock.

Captain Ildefonso's passion for fishing is only matched by his passion for people. He sees fishing as a way to interact with different people, to enjoy together, and to make new friends. Having run charters since the mid-1980s, he knows exactly what makes a successful fishing trip, and says he'll never tire of seeing people smile as they reel in a big fish.
