Canek del Pacífico – Bonita

Be a part of some of the best experiences Puerto Vallarta has to offer with Canek del Pacífico. Explore a range of thrilling fishing grounds in some pristine waters, from the Bay of Banderas out to El Corbeteña. With over 40 years of combined fishing experience and award-winning championships, Captain Louis is the perfect guide for first-time anglers, serious sport fishermen, and deep sea experts.

Head out aboard the “Bonita.” A 28’ Nava center console, she’s adept at exploring all kinds of waters. Let the twin 115 HP Yamaha V4 engines whisk you off to the deepest waters where you’ll make use of the boat’s top fishing equipment. You’ll fill the livewell with fresh bait, before making use of the outriggers to troll and catch the bite of some monster fish.

Discover the Bay of Banderas and its stunning reefs as you look back at the pristine coastline just a few miles away. Head out first thing and watch the sunrise behind the towering mountains, before getting your fish on. Go after dazzling Roosterfish, Snappers, Bonito, Mahi Mahi, and Jacks, and you’ll even get the chance to get in the water and swim with them. Just get in touch with the captain to bring the snorkeling gear aboard.

On longer trips, you’ll head out to some of the Pacific’s greatest offshore fishing spots. Explore El Corbeteña, and go after some monster fish. Get ready for the fight of your life as you try to reel in enormous, strong, and tough-fighting Marlin, Sailfish, Tuna, and Mahi Mahi. You won’t forget this in a hurry as you head back to shore with a great tale to tell.

During the trip, take advantage of the fresh fruit and free water on offer, but feel free to bring along any other drinks and snacks you’d like. At the end of the day, the crew will clean and prepare any of your catch that you’d like to take back to shore. Everything you could want out of a fishing trip awaits with Canek del Pacífico.
