Puerto Vallarta Charters

Head out to the deep waters of the Pacific aboard a renovated boat with Puerto Vallarta Charters. Whether you’re looking for a fun day out with the family or want to catch a trophy-sized Marlin, they’ve got you covered.

Captain Toyo has been fishing these waters for over a decade. In addition to knowing all the best fishing spots, he’s very personable. With his excellent command of English, he’s happy to help you out with whatever you need. Ask him anything and he’s sure to have the answer!

The 26’ Super Panga center console was restored to her former glory in 2018. There’s plenty of space for up to 6 guests on board, but the crew may limit the number of people for some longer trips. Make yourself at home on the spacious deck that comes fitted with a toilet. Bring your own drinks and snacks and make the most of your time aboard.

If you’re looking to give the kids a good time, then you’ll head to some prime snorkeling spots and beaches. Discover the magical world underwater and teach the kids a thing or two along with having fun. They’ll pick up fishing quite quick as you go after some of the smaller fish in the Bay of Banderas.

When it comes to the fishing, you’re in for a treat. The boat comes equipped with outriggers and a fighting chair to give you the edge over the fish when trolling. Troll the open waters for some monster fish, or bottom fish the reefs for colorful Snappers, Groupers, Jacks, and many more. Hit the deep waters, and you’re in for a serious fight against monsters such as Marlin, Sailfish, Tuna, and Mahi Mahi.

You’d better be prepared for a serious workout. Thankfully, the captain will provide plenty of beer or soft drinks so you can keep cool. At the end of the day, the crew will even clean and fillet your catch and they can take you to a beachside restaurant to have it cooked up.

Nothing but the best will do for Puerto Vallarta Charters. Come aboard and discover the best fishing and best service in these rich waters!
