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.

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.

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!

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.

Super fishing outing with Epi and Chuey. We fished a couple of different methods in different locations and after a slow start Epi located a school of skipjacks feeding close to the surface….lots of action ensued! To cap it off, Chuey made an outstanding ceviche on board. You don’t get much fresher than that! Very experienced, social, and knowledgeable captain and crew.

We started the day looking for Marlin but didn’t have any luck. So the captain changed things up and right away we hooked into a nice sized tuna. We ended the day with 3 nice tuna and had a few others on. The captain then fillet our fish to take home. Great day fishing with a great Captain. We are booking another trip with him this week for inshore fishing. Thank you the Jones’s

We visit Puerto Vallarta regularly and every trip I make sure I get out with "Super Mario". His knowledge of the water and ability to fish are only surpassed by his excellent English and great personality. You will not go wrong going out for either a full day or half day on the Burton II.

I had a great lifetime experience on this trip. I was able to pull in a 7 foot sail fish weighing approximately 100 pounds. It took about 30 minutes to finally pull in. The crew was super experienced and very accommodating. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone looking to check off a bucket list item.
