Mike’s Charters & Tours - Dora

Mike’s Charters & Tours is always focused on providing a tailored experience for their guests, and Dora is just one part of this big family. You can fish the best spots from a number of nearby ports, including Nuevo Vallarta, Puerto Vallarta, La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, as well as Punta de Mita. The crew will be happy to pick you up from whichever location is closest to you.

Dora is a 28’ offshore sportfishing boat that’s powered by a pair of 225 HP Mercury engines, with enough room for up to 4 prospective anglers. Her smaller size and quality engines result in her being faster than your standard fishing yacht, making her an ideal choice for smaller groups in general.

Mike’s Charters and Tours can offer you a diverse range of options, limited only by what you want to do on the water. If you’re looking for a shorter trip, you can explore Banderas Bay and target species like Roosterfish, Mahi Mahi, Skipjack Tuna, Jack Crevalle, and more besides. However, if you’re looking to give it your all on a longer trip, the crew can take you out into the open waters where you will be able to go after Marlin, Wahoo, Sailfish and Yellowfin Tuna, among others.

High-quality rods, reels, and tackle are included in the price of any given trip, and the crew will be happy to clean and fillet your catch once the trip is over. Come aboard and fish with an experienced, bilingual crew, who will do their best to take you on the trip of a lifetime.
