Azul Profundo Sportfishing

Azul Profundo Sportfishing charters invite you to fish and explore the beautiful waters of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. With over 15 years of fishing experience, Captain Arrow is extremely knowledgeable about how it’s done, from offshore to inshore fishing.

The captain has fished in a variety of tournaments, ranging from Cabo, Mazatlan, Acapulco, Manzanillo, and Cancun, all the way Vallarta. Captain Arrow and his crew will provide you and your group with the highest quality personal and professional service.

You’ll be fishing aboard his 28’ Navaboats center console equipped with two outboard Mercury FourStroke engines, 115 HP each. The boat is also rigged with top of the line fishing gear, tuna tubes, fishfinder, bathroom and Bluetooth stereo. 

On these deep sea fishing trips ranging from 4, 6, 8, to 12 hours, you’re most likely to bring in Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Amberjack, Tuna, and Rooster Fish. You’ll be able to fish with live bait, lures, jigs, downriggers, and even kites!

The captain will supply you with the best Black Bart lures, Shimano reels, monofilament Spectra and Brown lines, along with top-notch Seeker rods. Live bait will be waiting for you on the boat before the trip. Snorkeling equipment is also available, just let the captain know in advance so he could prepare the right sizes.

Fish cleaning can be arranged at the end of your trip, free of charge. The captain can also organize food and drink packages at an additional fee. You’re always welcome to bring your own food as well.

Kids older than five are also welcome – the captain loves teaching them about fishing. So don’t forget to join Azul Profundo Sportfishing on your next fishing trip or family adventure when you’re down in Puerto Vallarta. They’ll make sure you have a blast on your next fishing expedition!
