Viking Fishing Charters – PV

Explore the deep offshore waters out of Puerto Vallarta with Viking Fishing Charters and have an adventure of a lifetime! Your Captain, Victor Manuel Santana Ceja has been fishing the abundant waters of Puerto Vallarta for more than 18 years. He prides himself on providing his guests with exciting and memorable fishing adventures.

You’ll enjoy your trip on the Viking, a 25’ Mako center console boat. It’s powered by two new Mercury 4 stroke engines, so 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 capacity of 4 anglers, making it ideal for a day out with a few friends.

Capt. Victor uses quality fishing equipment to make sure you have the best chance of getting that prized game fish on the boat. You’ll fish using 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, Mahi Mahi, Jack Crevalle, and Bonito, or troll far offshore for the likes of Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, Roosterfish, and other popular pelagics. After the trip, the captain will be happy to clean and bag your fish so you can take it home to the table for a taste.

Feel free to bring your kids if you want to make some new family memories in the blue waters. Drinks will be provided on board, just bring some food on longer trips so you can stay refreshed. Pack some sunscreen as well, and you’re all set!

All you have to do is book Viking Fishing Charters, and you’re on your way to your newest fishing adventure in Puerto Vallarta!
