Fishing Are Us - Lucky 1

Fishing Are Us operate a fleet of amazing vessels around the Banderas Bay and beyond, targeting the area’s top species, and taking you to some truly awe-inspiring sites. Fish for Mahi Mahi, Marlin, Sailfish, and Tuna offshore, or stay in the sheltered bay to snorkel and swim while still targeting amazing reef species.

Fishing not your main priority? Then head to the stunning Los Arcos to snorkel and swim among an area of outstanding natural beauty, or stop at Las Animas for the ultimate beach getaway. No matter where you go, you can rest assured there isn’t a more experienced or professional crew around. You are in safe hands with Fishing Are Us.

Whether you are fishing, snorkeling, swimming, or simply doing very little, the Lucky 1 is the perfect vessel to do it from. The 28’ Super Panga center console comes equipped with a fighting chair, outriggers, livewell and Tuna tubes to keep even the most serious sportfisher happy.

She isn’t just about the fishing, though. The vessel also has plenty of comfortable deck space, as well well as a head for extra comfort on longer days out. On each trip, you will be provided with a selection of cold drinks, and you can have your catch served up as ceviche for the freshest meal imaginable.

So whether you are snorkeling around colorful reefs, chasing monster Marlin offshore, or just lying back with a beer on a secluded beach, you will know you have come to the right place when you book with Fishing Are Us.
