I have been on the boat and on the water for almost all of my life, but have only been in the charter business for 9 years. My passion comes from seeing a passenger on my boat with that smile when they get that nice fish on board.

We started the day on February 20th at 8:00 at the Paradise Village pier near Nuevo Vallarta. Beautiful day seeing the Dolphins, Whales, doing some fishing, snorkeling and a wonderful lunch with the Yellow Tail that my wife caught at Las Animas. We couldn’t ask for a nicer day for This and my family had a wonderful time! The crew was great to be with and very knowledgeable about the whole Puerto Vallarta area! We only caught 1 fish but it was more than enough to feed all of us. I recommend this tour to anyone who wants to have a combination of fishing, snorkeling and beach side lunch!

We had a rough start with some miss communication on where to to meet.  Our confirmation said one location and the captain was told something different.  Nether the less, we had a good day.  All five of us caught one fish.  Not the big one, but enough to give us a great big platter at a local restaurant.  Would do it again in the fall when the big fish are biting.
