Last year I fished the bay and got skunked. It is definitely worth the extra time and money to fish the blue water.

Pangas are great for 2 on in-shore, close-in fishing. If you're after bigger game fish, charter a bigger, faster (yes more expensive) boat.

Not the season for Mahi or Tuna, but was great season for Marlin, lots of them out on the water, not the biggest, but fantastic eating when they are smaller. I would recommend it!

Pick the right boat. Someone who will work hard to got you to the fish. We've had other experiences where it seemed the captain didn't care if we caught anything and didn't want to waste any gas. And sunscreen, do not underestimate the need for sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat.

This month should be start of marlin, sailfish etc. But not this year, some unusual weather patterns and the sea not yet cooled down meant fishing was hard work, with no sign of either.

Time of year means a lot in the species you can target. Make sure to do research, only booking your trip after you know what species you want to go after. As far as the smaller species like Jack's they are very close to the marina and also a lot of fun to go after if the big fish aren't in the area.

We didn't go too far out to sea, but was still able to catch a couple 10-15lb Jacks. We caught one small Spanish Mackerel, but was told they were small at the moment.

Even though we didn't catch anything the trip was still great, we trolled to Los Arcos and snorkelled, and then continued trolling to Amimas beach where we stopped shortly for a break. We saw whales and dolphins, turtles, and mantas from the boat. The captain and mate, David and Eric, were very friendly, the boat was clean and comfortable. Glad we went!

Although we didn’t catch that BIG fish we still had an awesome day with a very attentive crew. They even agreed to pick us up from La Cruz the marina closer to where we are staying.(for and extra cost of course) Totally recommend them if you want to get that deep sea fishing experience.

I would highly recommend Capt. Mario on the Burton III. We started off a little slow and Mario was determined to find us some fish. By the end of the day, we had caught 10 fish total, 6 different species, including a rare Ono (Wahoo). Can't wait to go back out on the Burton III.

My husband hurt his back and we had to reschedule. Epi was great at allowing us to do that. Our crew was Mani and Lalo. We had some rough seas but they were able to get us into fish. We caught 1 skipjack and 3 Mahi Mahi. Only negative was the boat description says 2 120hp motors, but they are 60. We had some equipment problems but they brought plenty of extras.

Capt Mario is absolutely amazing at what he does. His skill and vision kept us on fish for hours. Best trip that I've had down in PV. I would recommend his services if you looking for a great time out on the water. His 1st mate Alex is outstanding just like Capt Mario. This crew deserves 5 star +++ rating. They will be my go to every time I'm back down in PV. I could not have asked for better day. Thank you Capt Mario!

My brother and I have been fishing with these guys on and off for 15 years. Never been skunked yet. Caught one sizable mahi mahi and 16 skipjack. The owner remembered I like cigars so when I showed up he had one ready for me. Halfway through the charter the guys on the boat made us ceviche which was delicious. We had a great time and these guys were determined. I would recommend them any day of the week

We had a great time fishing with Mario and Juan. Four of us went for 1/2 a day and caught five Mahi Mahi, when one wouldn’t take the trolling lines they would cast out and catch them. So much fun to real in. The men then went for a full day for Marlin fishing, although they didn’t catch one they were very happy with catching tuna, Mahi-mahi and a crevalle jack. We will be sure to book our next fishing adventure with Mario next time we are in Puerto Vallarta. Thank you for the memories.

we booked a 6 hour trip with Mario . Mario and crew were top notch, they knew where to go to keep the day entertaining. we caught multiple varieties and lost a swordfish. Mario did everything he could to make sure we had a great day. We couldn’t be happier with how our day went, only disappointment was that i didn’t book earlier in the week so i could go twice with them.

This trip was for my boyfriend's birthday, as he had never been deep sea fishing. Unfortunately, he became quite sea sick - though he assured me he would be fine. Epi was great and was constantly trying remedies to make Eric feel better. We (I) still caught several skipjack tuna!
