Chuck's Tours

Prepare to be amazed with Chuck’s Tours. Based out of western Mexico’s Nayarit province, you’ll speed across the famous Bay of Banderas out into the Pacific to some of the ocean’s remotest spots. All alone with the crashing waves to soothe you, you’ll have no cares in the world. Get your fish on and, when you thought it couldn’t get any better, battle it out with a monster fish.

Captain Chuck Medina knows these waters like the back of his hand. An avid angler since childhood, he decided to make his dreams a reality by becoming a charter guide in, what he calls, the best place in the world. He knows just what it takes to reel in the biggest fish out there and can’t wait to show you how it’s done.

Step aboard his 29’ Nava offshore sportfishing boat and let the magic begin. Powered by twin 115 HP Mercury engines, you’ll speed off to the sweets spots at staggering speeds of up to 44 knots. The captain will prepare you some breakfast and a traditional Mexican lunch, along with ceviche and shrimp. Sit back and enjoy the stunning waters as you devour a delicious treat on board.

She’s also a serious fishing vessel. Head up to 30 miles offshore and explore some seriously deep waters and make use of the outriggers as you troll. Battle it out with a monstrous Marlin and splendid Sailfish. Like nothing you’ve seen before, these majestic Billfish will leave you lost for words. Go after Tuna and Mahi Mahi to take home something tasty for dinner, and you won’t be disappointed.

On your way back to shore, you’ll have the chance to put on snorkeling gear and get to know the incredible underwater world beneath you. When you get back, Capt. Chuck will clean and prepare your catch, or you can donate it to a local children’s home. This trip has whatever you want, and you just know that, with Chuck’s Tours, you’re in for a thrilling day

Capt. Chuck is a true outdoorsman. He loves nature and just being outside in the fresh air. Where better to do that than on the water with the sea breeze cooling you off. An avid angler since childhood, he decided to start running charters in 2014, making the most of the stunning waters off Mexico's west coast.
