Fishing Are Us - Lucky 1

Offering a wide variety of fishing trips ranging from half day fishing, snorkeling, and beach hopping expeditions to full-blown twelve hour offshore game fishing adventures, Fishing Are Us can cater to you, whatever your Puerto Vallarta fishing dreams and expectations. Not only will they help you catch fish, they will also give you the opportunity to bond with the beautiful surroundings and take a trip that will never be forgotten.

Fishing aboard the Lucky 1, you will be able to explore the multiple fishing and relaxational options available on this part of Mexico’s Pacific coastline, on a budget. This boat allows small groups to live their fishing dreams without breaking the bank. The smaller price does not mean a lower quality, however: the boat features a bathroom, an extendable shade canopy, seating, and a Bluetooth stereo, as well as all the appropriate navigational and safety equipment. On top of that, its wide bow cuts through chop with ease, giving you a comfortable ride for a boat of its size.

While this boat can take up to eight passengers, it is most comfortable for groups of two to four people.

The large number of exciting sport fish that inhabit the waters around Puerto Vallarta all year round means that during your trip, you could be catching anything from Blue, Black, and Striped Marlin to Roosterfish or Snapper. Let the friendly, experienced crew know what your goals are for the day, and they will do all they can to meet, and exceed, your expectations.

All of the packages offered by Fishing Are Us are inclusive of ice cold beers and waters, fishing licences, and gear, bait, and high quality lures.
