I have been on the boat and on the water for almost all of my life, but have only been in the charter business for 9 years. My passion comes from seeing a passenger on my boat with that smile when they get that nice fish on board.

Captain Ariel made great suggestions and help to explain every part of the trip the same day I booked it to confirm everything we wanted to do. Capt. Luis and our guide Eli made the trip perfect. Eli knew everyone involved with the island and we were the first to get into the hidden beach due to his freindship with the park rangers. Luis ran the boat perfectly even in the tricky spots that are narrow and shallow so we saw every piece of the island. After snorkeling and visiting multiple beaches we headed for the fish. We were greeted with fresh pineapple as we dried off.  Luis and Eli worked the boat and the lines together and put us on some Bonitas right away. They both watched the Water and the air for signs of fish and put us on them in 4 different locations.  As we traveled across the area we spotted many whales and dolphins. Luis always moving us towards whales or fish all afternoon. We picked all pulled in all the lines and headed in from a beautiful day. As we moved back toward Puerto Vallarta Luis spotted a large flock of birds and then dolphins and asked if we wanted to fish more as he was sure this sooot was full of more. Eli and Luis set all the reels again and we were into 2 jacks. We brought in 2 more and headed home.  Great guys amazing day !!!!

Crew was excellent.  We some Dolphins, and two whales.  The fishing was slow, but We did manage to get four smaller fish into the boat.

Great day on the water!  Boat was perfect for fishing - clean, seaworthy and well powered. Ariel was very knowledgable and accommodating. My 2 teenage kids and I have fished SoCal and Baja quite a bit but first time in PV. We met with Ariel and his deckhand Luis the day before and went over what kind of species we wanted to target and how far we were prepared to go. He told us that the Jack Crevalle bite was good inside the bay but suggested we head out early to the Marietas to see if we could find some exotics, knowing that we could always come back and load up on the Jacks later in the day. Good decision! Left the harbor at 6.30 and got to the Marietas at Sunrise. Magnificent! Like fishing in an aquarium. Filled the boat with Pompano, Snapper, Amberjack & Bonito while manta rays and whales surfaced all around us. Headed back inside the bay around 11 to target the Jack Crevalle. Found lots of boils under the birds and boated (& released!) 8 in total, all in the 30# class. Fantastic topwater action on light tackle with poppers and surface irons. My 2 kids were ecstatic!
Called it good around 2.30 - Put some tunes on the stereo, ate fresh Ceviche and drank cold Pacifico’s on the ride back - Epic day!
Muchas gracias to Ariel and his crew. We’ll be back for sure!
