Fishing Are Us – Lucky 1

Offering a wide variety of fishing trips, Fishing Are Us can cater to you whatever your Puerto Vallarta fishing dreams and expectations. Not only will they help you catch fish, but they will also give you the opportunity to take in the beautiful surroundings and take a trip you’ll never forget.

Fishing aboard the Lucky 1, you will be able to explore the many fishing and relaxational options available in this part of Mexico’s Pacific coastline. While this boat can take up to 8 passengers, it is most comfortable for groups of 2 to 4 people fishing at the same time.

It allows small groups to live their fishing dreams without breaking the bank. The smaller price does not mean lower quality – the boat features a bathroom, a shade canopy, seating, and a 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.

A 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 packages offered by the crew include ice-cold beers and waters, fishing licenses, and gear, bait, and high-quality lures.

Hop aboard Lucky 1 and explore some of the most beautiful waters around with Fishing Are Us!
