Mike’s Charters & Tours - Dora

Mike’s Charters & Tours is introducing the newest addition to the family: Dora. This exclusive speed fishing boat is powered up and rigged up, hot and ready to take you to the best fishing spots around Puerto Vallarta and beyond. Fishing from a variety of local ports, including Puerto Vallarta, Nuevo Vallarta, La Cruz de Huanacaxtle and Punta de Mita, the boat can pick you up and drop you off at whichever location suits you best.

Dora is a fast and comfortable 28 ft boat that can take up to four passengers. Better equipped than a super panga and faster than a conventional fishing yacht, this boat is perfect for speedy runs. Powered by twin Mercury engines and traveling at up to 24 knots, she is the ideal base for small groups who want to get the most out of their time on the water. Step inside the air conditioned cockpit and see for yourself just how enjoyable Mexico’s fishing can be.

Your fishing trip will take you to the best locations that can be reached in the amount of time you have. Shorter trips will usually take you fishing in the famous Banderas Bay, where you will be targeting the iconic Roosterfish, as well as Jack Crevalle, Spanish Mackerel, Mahi Mahi, and Skipjack Tuna. Take a longer trip, and you will be able to head out of the bay and into the open waters, where Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, and Yellowfin Tuna are all there for the catching. Armed with fresh live bait and the best Penn International fishing rods, and encouraged by a bilingual crew, you will be in the best possible position to catch them.

Mike’s Charters & Tours is one of the most well-established charter companies in Puerto Vallarta and Nuevo Vallarta. Fish with their experienced crew, and discover the outstanding variety of fish species waiting on your doorstep.
