Viking 1 Fishing Charters has tailored various packages to meet your specific angling needs and wishes. If you are new to fishing, stay close to the bay.

Target Blue, Black, and Striped Marlin, go after Amberjack and Yellowfin Tuna. Or if you feel like fishing is not enough, combine it with a snorkeling excursion. Try various aquatic opportunities in Puerto Vallarta and come back to shore with your ice-chest full of memories.

All trips come with a license, quality gear, tackle, lures, and bait. The crew will offer water and sodas, so you can feel free to bring your favorite food. As well as that, First Mate will clean and fillet your catch at the end of the adventure.
