Yamaica lll (Vallarta Sportfishing)

Discover epic sportfishing in the Bay of Banderas and beyond! “Yamaica III” is docked in Puerto Vallarta, a paradise for pelagics and big inshore fish too. You’re in safe hands with a professional and fish obsessed crew that will cater to novice and seasoned anglers alike!

Your vessel for the day is a 36’ Luhrs express cruiser, ideal for 6 anglers. Depending on your targets, 2-4 can fish at the same time. She’s equipped with a private toilet, ample indoor and outdoor seating, and a flybridge for your ultimate enjoyment. Your fishing needs are taken care of too, thanks to the fighting chair, live well, downriggers, and tuna tubes.

If it’s offshore sportfishing you’re after, your targets certainly won’t disappoint. Mahi Mahi, Blue and Striped Marlin, Sailfish, and a variety of Tuna will all keep your lines tight. That said, staying closer to shore can be just as exciting. With Kingfish, Grouper, and massive Roosterfish all on offer you can squeeze a ton action into a few hours.

All of your rods, reels, and tackle are provided, as is snorkeling equipment for all 6 guests if requested. The crew is happy to clean and fillet any catch you choose to keep and they can even prepare it into a delicious, fresh ceviche for you to enjoy for lunch! They’ll also provide bottled water and ice but you’re free to bring any other drinks and snacks you’d like.

The crew works hard to make sure you hook beasts and if you’re happy with the service, tips are greatly appreciated. Bring your camera and get ready to make some everlasting memories in Puerto Vallarta with Yamaica III!
