PV Marine Tours offer quality and memorable fishing and leisure charters from Puerto Vallarta. Whether you want to spend a day cruising between white sandy beaches or head offshore for some serious game fishing, they have a package that will suit the needs of you and your group.

The “Off Dutty” is a 27 ft Stamas powered by two Yamaha 225 HP engines and equipped with a VHF Radio. The boat comes fully rigged for an amazing fishing experience with GPS, snorkeling equipment, live bait tank, fishfinder, outriggers, fighting chair, Tuna tubes, and a live bait tank, as well as rods and reels. The boat has room for up to eight passengers, although offshore game fishing trips are limited to five to ensure that everyone on the trip has the best possible experience. Fully equipped with a cabin, clean enclosed toilet, professional equipment and safety equipment, this is a great vessel both for relaxing and for sportfishing. With plenty of shade on board, you don’t even need to worry about hot sunny days. Everything is taken care of to ensure you have the best experience!

Choose between a half day fishing trip in the deep Bahia de Banderas Bay for Jack Crevalle, Mackerel and Bonitos, or travel offshore for a full day fishing for Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, Tuna, and more, depending on the season and conditions. Otherwise, combine light fishing with snorkeling and beach hopping. Whichever option you choose, the English-speaking captain and crew will make sure you get the most out of your time on the water.

Captain Ignacio “Nacho” Meza is a professional and expert captain with 25 years of experience and local knowledge at his command.
