A 6-hour trip will see you fishing and heading south to the beautiful beach of Las Animas, where you can go snorkeling and have lunch. The Captain’s personal favorite package is a nine-hour trip, which includes fishing, snorkeling, and a trip to Yelapa to have lunch on the beach, as well as whale watching when in the season. For those passionate anglers who want some bigger action, Calypso Fishing Charters offers a 10-hour trip up to 45 miles offshore and a 12-hour trip for two people up to 70 miles offshore. You will be able to target a variety of species, including Amberjack, Great Barracuda, Mahi Mahi, Jack Crevalle, King Mackerel, Blue Marlin, Roosterfish, Sailfish, Red Snapper, and Skipjack Tuna.

Captain Ariel Rosen and his crew use a lot of various fishing techniques which you will also be able to try, such as light and heavy tackle, bottom fishing, trolling, jigging, drift fishing, handline, spinning, popping, kite fishing, and spearfishing.

With Calypso Fishing Charters, you’ll have a fun day out on the beautiful waters of Nuevo Vallarta, visit a hidden beach, and chase the best fish.

I have been on a boat and on the water all of my life, but have only been in the charter business for 12 years . My passion comes from seeing a passenger on my boat with a big fat smile when they get that nice fish on board, and showing every body the beauty of banderas bay (my back yard) this for me makes me the happiest person alive !!!
