Mike’s Fishing Charters–Isabella II

Mike’s Fishing Charters & Tours has a whole fleet of vessels for you to choose from, and we’re sure you’ll be able to find one that fits you like a glove. The crew can pick you up from a number of different ports, such as Nuevo Vallarta, Puerto Vallarta, La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, and Punta de Mita. Different packages include everything from quick four-hour trips up to multi-day offshore adventures, so feel free to take your pick.

You will be fishing on the Isabella II, one of the fleet’s more luxurious boats. She is a 42’ Hatteras cruiser that’s powered by a pair of 285 HP Detroit engines and includes amenities such as an air-conditioned interior, a full bathroom, and comfortable cabins. While she can take up to 15 people without a problem, it’s generally recommended that no more than 8 anglers come aboard, especially if you’re going on a longer trip.

If you’re looking for a short but sweet experience, the crew will take you inshore to fish for tasty specimens such as Cubera Snapper and Roosterfish. Those looking for something longer and more engaging should check out the longer offshore trips because if you’re looking for three days of intense billfishing, the captain is more than glad to provide.

Any given trip will include a wide selection of quality tackle, as well as complimentary fish cleaning after the trip. The crew is bilingual and very professional and will make sure you get the absolute most out of your trip. Don’t forget your sunglasses and hop aboard for an adventure you’re not likely to forget anytime soon.
