Get on board Calypso and enjoy your day out on the beautiful Mexican waters out of Puerto Vallarta! Captain Ariel Rosen has been fishing in the area since he was a kid, so he knows these waters like the back of his hand. He’ll make sure you have an amazing time.

The Calypso, his 30’ center console boat, is powered by twin 150 Mercury 4 stroke outboard engines. This gives it plenty of power to take you offshore in search of some monsters. Not to worry about sunny days, as there’s lots of shade on board. The boat can accommodate up to 4 anglers.

Capt. Ariel will have Avett, Shimano, and Penn fishing equipment ready for you. You’ll find tuna tubes, outriggers, downriggers, and 2 fighting chairs on board, so you’ll maximize your chances of reeling in those huge specimens! Take your catch back home to the table – the captain will be happy to clean and fillet the fish for you.

There’s a lot of trips you can choose from, depending on how much time you want to spend on the water, as well as which grounds you want to visit. The area is brimming with marine life, so there are opportunities for whale watching and snorkeling.

When it comes to fishing, there’s always something to target. You’ll try to reel in species like Mahi Mahi, Roosterfish, Snapper, Sailfish, Wahoo, Tuna, Marlin, Barracuda, Jack Crevalle, and King Mackerel. The crew supports catch and release when it comes to all Billfish.

The number one specialty tour on Calypso is a day in Yelapa. This trip includes a little bit of everything – fishing, whale watching, and snorkeling. Up to 8 people are welcome, so it’s the perfect family day. The crew loves new adventures and showing you this beautiful bay!

Join the experienced bilingual crew of Calypso, and have an unforgettable experience on these prolific Mexican waters!

    On this trip, you'll start by fishing all the way (trolling) to the snorkeling spot Los Arcos so you can catch your own food. When you get to Los Arcos you'll do some snorkeling, and then head to the beautiful beach of Las Animas. If you spot some whales you'll stop and say hi to them. Then you'll head to Las Animas for some great seafood: they have all kinds of meals but you really want to try the fish, lobster or oysters, breaded or on the shell. Get ready for an amazing adventure!

Captain Ariel has been on a boat and on the water all his life but has only been in the charter business for 12 years. His passion comes from seeing a passenger on his boat with a big fat smile when they got that nice fish on board and showing everybody the beauty of Banderas Bay – Captain Ariel's backyard. This makes him the happiest person alive!
