Calypso Charters is a family-owned company, based in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. The Captain and the crew are passionate and knowledgeable anglers, who know where the fish are hiding and how to find it. A day out with them will see you sailing to a remote beach, having a delicious lunch on the beach, and, of course, targeting the fish of your dreams!

You will be sailing aboard a 28-foot “Calypso II” boat, built by the Captain. It comes powered by twin 115 HP Yamaha engines and is equipped with navigational electronics, a multimedia system, an ice-box, and fluorocarbon leaders from 30lbs to 300lbs for the big game fish, as well as a fighting chair, Tuna tubes, outriggers, downriggers, centerriggers, and a live bait tank. What is more, there is a toilet on board.

You will be able to choose among a great variety of trips with Calypso II. Each trip can be customized to suit any angler’s needs. A four-hour trip will see you fishing the Bay, whilst the Get On & Get Off Fishing Trip is a perfect combination of fishing, snorkeling, and whale watching when in the season. If you choose a six-hour package, you will get a chance to take a morning dip in the waters of Los Acros, go fishing, and have lunch in Las Animas. A day out on Marietas Island will be a memorable experience for a group of friends or a family, while a 12-hour fishing trip is ideal for a couple of passionate anglers. Among your targeted species will be Wahoo, Yellowfin Tuna, Skipjack Tuna, Snook, Red Snapper, Sailfish, Blue Marlin, Roosterfish, King Mackerel, Mahi Mahi, Jack Crevalle, and Amberjack.

Your trip will include rods, reels, tackle, lures, drinks, fishing licenses, and live bait. Once caught, your fish will be cleaned and filleted for you by the crew.

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 Charlie and first mate Sam were friendly and made the trip, with lots of information and history of the area. We caught 3 jack crevalle and I lost another. They put us on fish, if I could cast better I would of caught more! They filleted the fish and we ate them at the restaurant. Delicious! Highly recommend calypso II.
