Chawin Fishing Sayulita & Ocean Sports

Come join Captain Chawin for a fun-filled day fishing our beautiful waters of Sayulita! Captain Chawin (Juan Luis) belongs to the 4th generation of a fishermen family & has over 30 years of experience fishing Sayulita, inshore and offshore waters. Having a guide with that much experience is always a plus, especially if you’re a novice angler or simply don’t have much experience fishing around Mexico. It is also a perfect opportunity to view the village and surrounding beaches from the Pacific.

Your fishing adventure starts on a 24 ft Nava Mexican ‘panga’ – a classic open-bow fishing boat built in 2022. Powered by an FT60 GEHDL Yamaha engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 35 knots, that can safely take up to 4 anglers. It’s equipped with a livewell to hold plenty of live bait for any style of fishing, which is usually caught during the trip and it is covered to protect you from the sun as well. All rods, reels, and tackle are included in the price, as well as the fishing license and gas.

Success is almost always guaranteed. Some of the more common fish are Dorado or Mahi-Mahi, Amberjack, Sailfish, Marlin, Tuna, Roosterfish, and Bonito. Your fish will be cleaned or filleted upon request at no extra charge.

You’ll have a safe and fun trip while Captain Chawin puts you on the fish! Join Chawin Fishing Sayulita & Ocean Sports!
