Viking is a 25’ Mako custom sport fishing boat, powered by two new Mercury’s 150HP 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.

Manuel and Carlos were very nice. The boat was clean and they had an ice chest with drinks. My boyfriend caught two yellowtail jacks within the first 30 minutes. Both 35 or more pounds. We got out early and it seems we were one of the few boats that caught anything that day. My boyfriend was very happy with the fish and I was very happy napping on the bow of the boat. Thanks guys for a fun experience!

We went fishing on July 1.  It started raining, but that didn’t stop us catching our limit in the first 2 hours.  The captain and his crew worked very hard and were a lot of fun!!  After we got our limit, we were able to catch and release.  We saw a lot of dolphins our on our trip which was an extra bonus.  After we were done, they cleaned our fish and took us do a restaurant for them to cook.  It was awesome!!!  They joined us for lunch.  Next time we are in PV, we will definitely go fishing again with them.

My son and I had a great 4 hours fishing in the bay on the morning of February 7th with Captain Manuel Santana. He arranged to pick us up at the marina near our condo and while fishing was initially a little slow, before the morning was over we had both caught a fish with one being a large amberjack (yellowtail) . Captain Manuel fileted the fish and we went home with a large bag of yellowtail fillets that were delicious!
