Puerto Vallarta is more than just golden beaches and a handsome, rugged coastline. Get offshore with Tres Amores and discover the pristine waters of the Pacific and the dazzling fish that inhabit them. The reefs of the Bay of Banderas are home to some incredible bottom fish, while pelagic Billfish will be feeding in the deeper waters. Come aboard for the fishing experience of a lifetime.

The 36’ Sea Ray offshore sport fishing boat was built with maximum comfort in mind. Make the most of the tropical climate and tan up on deck, or cool off in the cabin – there’s something for everyone. She comes fitted with a toilet, so don’t worry about filling up on your own food and drinks which the captain will allow you to bring aboard. There’s space for groups of 8, with 4 fishing at any one time.

When it comes to fishing, she’s perfectly adept for all eventualities. Climb up to the flybridge to find the fishing grounds, while you’ll troll from the outriggers to cover a wide range of water. Lure the bite of some monster fish with live bait and settle into the fighting chair to do battle.

Along the reefs, you’ll bottom fish to catch the bite of beautiful Snappers, Jack Crevalle, Roosterfish, and Yellowtails. While offshore, you’re in for the fight of your life. Monstrous Marlin and stunning Sailfish will leave you breathless, while Tuna and Mahi Mahi will also put up an incredible fight to get off your line. Use all your strength to hook these beasts aboard, and head back to shore with something delicious for dinner.

The fishing is excellent year-round, and it doesn’t matter whether you head offshore or to the reefs – you’re always in for a treat. At the end of the day, the captain or first mate can even clean and fillet your catch for a tip, so you can head to a beachside restaurant and savor the fruits of your labor! Come aboard Tres Amores and make the most of your Mexican adventure.
