Get one step closer to seeing the whole world with Chimbo’s Adventures. Leave Manzanillo and the beach behind and discover the Pacific’s prolific fishing grounds. Crystal clear waters and monstrous, majestic fish await as you head up to 25 miles offshore. Boat owner, Carlos Padilla will be present on all trips and will answer your every need. A passionate fisherman, he’s also fluent in English, so communication won’t be a problem.

Head offshore aboard a 32’ custom-built offshore sport fishing boat. There’s plenty of covered and uncovered space for up to 10 guests on board, meaning sun junkies and those more averse to the heat can enjoy. You’ll be given a range of drinks, including beer and soft drinks, and there’s no need to hold back – there’s a toilet on board, too! Fitted with outriggers and a fighting chair, she’s also a serious fishing vessel that will give you the edge over the fish.

In the deep waters of the Pacific, you’ll go after a range of thrilling and delicious fish. These waters are known for their Blue Marlin population, and these leaping beasts will be worth the trip alone. Just wait until you get one on the end of your line, though. Then the real fun can begin. Get ready for the fight of your life to guide any of the Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, or Tuna, among other fish, to the boat.

You’ll discover a whole new world of marine life and fishing aboard with Chimbo’s Adventures. You can even get up close to the fish, and immerse yourself in their world as you put on the snorkeling gear and explore even more. At the end of the day, the crew will clean and prepare your catch for you to take back to shore, and they’ll even serve you up some ceviche, should you wish. The trip of a lifetime on the open ocean awaits.
