Calypso Charters is a family owned business. We have two boats: Calypso and Calypso 2.

The Calypso 2 is a 28 foot super panga. It is a beautiful boat with a head on board, music, iPod connector, Penn International, Shimano, Avette reels, livewell, outriggers, fluorocarbon leaders from 30lbs to 300lbs for the big game fish and powered by twin 90HP engines. The boat is equipped with the best and most professional fishing equipment.

We provide a variety of services from deep sea fishing, bottom fishing and inshore fishing to spearfishing trips, Yelapa tours, snorkeling and whale watching.

All of our services are private, so if you want to plan your own trip, we will do whatever you would like to do on the ocean in Puerto Vallarta.

Our best tours is to do it the “local way”. It’s an 8-hour trip. We do fishing, whale watching, snorkeling and Yelapa for the day. We stop in Yelapa after a great morning of fishing, whales and snorkeling and go visit the waterfalls of Yelapa, or we can have lunch first and then go visit the waterfall, depending on how hungry we are.

You will not be disappointed when you go out on the Calypso 2, we will do everything to make your day the perfect fishing experience!

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.

Ariel and his Captain Pepe were very professional and made our experience very worry free and pleasurable. We were able to catch a lot of fish and Ariel was an awesome, knowledgeable tour guide. Pepe was the hardest working Captain we’ve experienced and made our fishing as effortless as we wanted.  I highly recommend this booking. However, please know that even in the bay, this is fishing with trolling only. If your idea of bay fishing is using your own reel to catch fish you may want to put that request in ahead of time so Ariel may prepare alternate equipment. But if you are looking to kick back and be handed a rod/reel with a hooked fish this is the right place to go!!!!

The day started off with a little mix up about where to pick us up, but understandably it was a different location than normal, and the owner was trying to make our lives as easy as possible. Once the boat arrived, everything was first class. Tony and Luis welcomed us, apologized for the mix up, and got us on the water as soon as possible. Within 15 minutes of being on the boat, we had lines in the water, and less than 5 minutes later, we hit a school of Bonitos, and all 3 of us had each caught 3 fish before we headed to deeper water. Tony and Luis were pointing out things to look for, and landed us in the middle of a school of rays, a great visual experience, but we landed a really nice Jack Crevelle which was delicious. The fish continued to bite, as the chunks of the bait fish proved, but that was the end of the day, as our time was up, and we had to head back to shore. The 3 of us were very impressed with the care and cleanliness of the boat, the friendliness and desire of the captain and crew to help us catch something, and their intent to make sure that we were successful and had a good time. We will be back in PV next June for our wedding, and look forward to using the Calypso II again.
