Puerto Vallarta Calypso Fishing

Puerto Vallarta Calypso Fishing invites you to complete your Mexican fishing bucket list. This family-owned company has gained a reputation hardly anyone can beat. Whichever aquatic desire you have, the captain will make it happen. Each day out is an exciting opportunity to not only catch a lot of fish, but also have fun with your family and friends. Imagine this: just as you are ready to cast a line, you spot a whale passing by!

If catching big fish with light tackle sounds appealing, the 28’ center console is your ticket to the best Puerto Vallarta trip. The boat’s twin 15 HP Yamaha engines will power you to the best fishing grounds in no time. The vessel is fully rigged with Furuno navigational electronics, fighting chair Tuna tubes, and many other professional facilities. This fishing machine was truly built with comfort in mind!

Explore the bay, test the waters for Roosterfish, Jack Crevalle, Skipjack, and Mahi-Mahi. Go a bit further for some Sailfish action. Fish the waters around the Marieta Island for Snapper, Pompano. Grouper, Blue and Black Marlin Amberjack, Jack Crevalle, Wahoo, and who knows what else. Or head up to 40 miles out and “go deep”!

Fishing with Captain Ariel is so good, you will want to go back immediately after you return to the shore. If fishing is not your main priority, combine it with snorkeling, have lunch at the beach, explore the remote parts of Las Animas and Yelapa. The choice is yours!

The trips are all-inclusive. You will be provided with license, quality gear, tackle, bait, and the complimentary fish cleaning and filleting service.

I have been on a boat and on the water all of my life, but have only been in the charter business for 12 years . My passion comes from seeing a passenger on my boat with a big fat smile when they get that nice fish on board, and showing every body the beauty of banderas bay (my back yard) this for me makes me the happiest person alive !!!
