In less than an hour’s ride from Puerto Vallarta, your adventure awaits. Operating out of Punta de Mita, Mexico, Marietas Sportfishing specializes in professionally guided fishing tours. Their trips are available year-round, so feel free to book your trip anytime. Captain Jose has been fishing his whole life. He learned from his father since he was a kid, so there’s no fishing spot in the area that he doesn’t know of.
An important part of Capt. Jose’s service is assisting guests who’ve never fished before. He’s there to show you the first steps and help you catch your first fish. The best part of the job for him is when a novice gets hooked on fishing, or when an experienced person catches a new fish species for the first time. It’s all about learning something new, getting better at something you know, and having fun while doing it!
You’ll meet the captain at the marina and aboard his 26’ Nava skiff. This vessel accommodates up to 5 guests and there’s enough room for everybody to fish at the same time. The boat has a live bait tank, an ice box, and features all necessary navigational and safety equipment. There’s also lots of room in the shade, so you don’t have to worry about getting sunburned.
Depending on the season, you could be reeling in Sailfish, Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Jack Crevalle, Roosterfish, Pompano, Snapper, and more. If big game fishing is your goal for the day, book a full day trip, as you’ll need more time to reach the depths that these ferocious species call home.
The captain will cover your fishing equipment and drinks for the day. He’ll also clean and fillet your catch but note that not all of the species can be kept. You only need to bring your food for the day and you’re ready to go.
Check out why anglers from all around the world are coming to this area, just for fishing! Marietas Sportfishing will make sure you leave their boat with a smile on your face and a few fresh fish fillets in the bag.
