Viking Fishing Charters - PV

Los Peines
Puerto Vallarta JA, Mexico

Viking is a 25’ Mako custom sport fishing boat, powered by two new Mercury 4 stroke engines, so that you don’t have to waste time getting to where the fish are. The vessel is outfitted with tuna tubes and a live bait tank, and has a maximum capacity of 4 passengers. Viking sports a conventional array of navigational electronics, such as GPS, radio as well as a multimedia sound system for your enjoyment on board.

Captain Victor uses quality fishing equipment to make sure you have the best chance of getting that prized game fish on the boat. He utilizes Shimano reels and Callstar rods, as well as various other types of tackle, to accommodate a variety of fishing situations you might find yourself in. Depending on the duration of the trip, you’ll either fish inside the bay for Tuna, Dorado, Jacks, Bonitos and more, or troll far offshore for the likes of Billfish, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi and other popular pelagics.

Your Captain, Victor Manuel Santana Ceja, is a veteran angler coming from a family of fishermen. Victor has been fishing the abundant waters of Puerto Vallarta for more than 18 years, and is fluent in all types of fishing techniques, particularly trolling and live bait fishing, but also popping, jigging and more. He prides himself with providing his guests with an exciting and memorable fishing adventure, which many of Victor’s repeat customers will happily attest to.

Puerto Vallarta is considered one of the best deep sea fishing destinations in Mexico and beyond. A large variety of migratory pelagics frequent these waters, including Blue, Black and Striped Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, Dorado, Tuna, Roosterfish, Amberjack and many more. These famous hotspots are also responsible for a variety of IGFA records, and can accommodate all sorts of fishermen, regardless of your skill and experience level.
