Nuevo Vallarta Fishing – Flipper III

Nuevo Vallarta Fishing is based on the west coast of Mexico, on the shore of the famous Bahia de Banderas Bay. Depending on what is most convenient for their customers, they can depart from either Puerto Vallarta or Nuevo Vallarta, both of which are within easy reach of a host of tourism facilities and are just minutes drive from the Licenciado Gustavo Diaz Ordaz International Airport. They offer bay fishing and offshore trips, as well as snorkeling trips and guided tours.

Their three Panga boats all measure between 26 and 28 ft and are powered by two 60 HP mercury engines. They are equipped with VHF radios. The boats can accommodate up to six anglers and they feature a live bait tank, a portable toilet, and an ice box. They are also equipped with outriggers and snorkeling equipment.

Nuevo Vallarta Fishing specializes in deep sea fishing, bottom fishing, light tackle fishing, and jigging, and they use Penn International tackle. They offer half day, three quarter day, and full day trips, and mainly fish for Jack Crevalle, Mackerel, Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, and Marlin, depending on the season and the conditions on the day.

All rods, reels and terminal tackle are included in the price, as is bait, lures, and ice. The local English speaking crew will also clean and fillet your catch for you at the end of the trip so you can enjoy a tasty meal at one of the many local restaurants.
