Pesca en Vallarta - El Jefe PV

Pesca en Vallarta welcomes you down to Banderas Bay and invites you aboard for a fishing trip that will test your strength, improve your skills, and quite possibly crown your fishing career! With anything from 4-hour stints to multi-day marathons available, you can find the perfect fishing charter, whatever that means to you.

You will spend your trip aboard “El Jefe,” a 38’ Silverton motor yacht with enough room for 8 anglers to fish and relax in comfort. The boat comes equipped with a full battery of marine electronics, as well as outriggers and a fighting chair to help bring in the biggest of the big game.

“El Jefe” is Spanish for “The Boss,” and you’ll certainly feel like a boss cruising aboard this stunning vessel. She features a spacious interior with comfortable cabins and a full bathroom and galley. Up on deck, her forward sun deck gives you tons of space to relax while several anglers battle the fish of a lifetime at the back.

You’re certainly in for some bucket list catches when you head out with Pesca en Vallarta. Even shorter trips can get you hooked on hard-fighting Roosterfish and Jack Crevalle. Head out on an extended day trip, and you can add Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, and Tuna to your list of target species.

Go all out on a multi-day trip, and you’ll be fishing waters most PV charter boats have never even been to. Two-day trips head 80 miles out to the canyons to battle monster Blue, Black, and Striped Marlin. Three-day charters go even farther, where anglers have reeled in Yellowfin Tuna over 230 lbs aboard El Jefe in the past.

Whatever you’re after, you can rely on a quality boat and a dedicated team which has been fishing the Banderas Bay for the last 2 decades. Everything you need for the fishing itself is ready and waiting - just bring your food and drinks and get ready for the adventure of a lifetime!
