Calypso Charters – Calypso II

Spice up your vacation, and join Calypso Charters to explore the prolific fishing grounds out of Puerto Vallarta in Mexico! Captain Ariel Rosen grew up on these waters, so he’ll show you all the best places where you can reel in those bucket-list specimens.

You will be sailing aboard Calypso II, a 28’ center console boat built by the Captain. It’s powered by twin 115 HP Yamaha engines and is equipped with navigational electronics, so it’ll put you on the fish in no time. The boat can accommodate up to 4 anglers, and there’s a toilet on board for your convenience.

The crew will provide you with all the fishing equipment, and you’ll fish using live bait. There’s a fighting chair on board so you can reel in some of those monsters. The crew will be happy to clean and fillet your catch after the trip, so you can take it home for a taste, or to fill the freezer.

You will be able to choose among a great variety of trips, depending on where you want to go, and how much time you have. Each trip can be customized to suit any angler’s needs. There’s a lot of beautiful places you can explore here, so feel free to take a look and find the trip that speaks to you most.

A day out with Capt. Ariel will see you sailing to a remote beach, having a delicious lunch on the beach, and, of course, targeting the fish of your dreams! Among your targeted species will be Wahoo, Tuna, Snook, Snapper, Sailfish, Marlin, Roosterfish, King Mackerel, Mahi Mahi, Jack Crevalle, and Amberjack.

Come and have an unforgettable fishing adventure under the hot Mexican sun with Calypso Charters!

    This can be really cool because for 6 hours you have time to go to the middle of the bay. Sometimes there's a better quality of fishing. Remember this is one of the biggest bays in the world so you want to consider going out of the bay.

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!
