Cpt. Brother’s Boat specializes in bay fishing in the beautiful Bahía de Banderas, as well as offshore trolling off the coast of Nuevo Vallarta. Captain Ramon Fonseca will take you on the adventure of a lifetime and put you on big game fish, no matter your level of experience. He’s been fishing these waters his entire life and knows all the best spots along the coast to give you an unforgettable experience.

Your journey will take place on a 28’ Nava center console, equipped with top-of-the-line electronics and fishing amenities. Her features include a flybridge, fighting chair, outriggers and downriggers, a wireless trolling motor, and a private toilet. She accommodates up to 8 guests and kids of all ages are welcome to join in on the action.

On 4 and 6-hour trips, you’ll be fishing the Bay of Flags (Bahía de Banderas) to target a plethora of species, including Roosterfish, Pacific Jack Crevalle, Cubera Snapper, Bonito, and more. On 8-hour trips, you’ll have the opportunity to go further offshore and troll for pelagics such as Blue Marlin, Sailfish, Swordfish, Mahi Mahi, and the list keeps going!

Capt. Ramon also offers snorkeling and fishing combo trips where you can do a bit of both. These trips are perfect for families with kids as they’ll have a chance to learn about the different species that congregate along the bottom of the ocean. Some exotic fish are present underneath these waters and make for perfect family photos if you have a GoPro.

State-of-the-art Shimano gear is provided on all trips and your fishing license is already included in the price. Your crew will offer to clean and fillet your fish and ingredients for ceviche are available along with your catch. Water and soda are provided on all trips, as well as beer on the 8-hour excursions.

Just pack some snacks, sunblock, a hat, and sunglasses and the rest will be taken care of. Book your trip today and let Cpt. Brother’s Boat take you on the adventure of a lifetime!
