What anglers said about Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) Fishing in Puerto Vallarta

Mahi season starts in July and Marlin season starts around September. We didn’t go out very far so didn’t catch anything too crazy but was still so fun. If it’s your first time and you wanna catch some crazy stuff- go deeper and during the fish season months you want to catch.

Gabriel told us that the best time to fish for the large trophy sized game fish is October through January. If your trip revolves around catching these, I'd reach out to Gabriel directly to see how things are going that particular year and have him help you plan your trip. For our family, we were just happy reeling in fish and Gabriel made sure we got to do plenty of that while also fishing for the big ones which are pretty hard to find in June.

The water is warming and not as blue in the bay. It may be better getting out of the bay on a 3/4 or full day.

This was a great introduction to Puerto Vallarta fishing. We were out the perfect amount of time and our boat was outfitted perfectly for our family. The Captain pulled out the awning and that was wonderful for relaxing out of the sun. We didn't catch many fish but the other boats the Captain checked in with that were fishing the bay were having a slow day as well. That's to be expected with fishing. Overall, a great day out in the bay!

The waters are a little cooler in April so the mahi mahi and dorados are further offshore. However there are still plenty of great fish to catch in the bay!

Don’t be afraid to ask to fish for a certain type of fish if you’re after something specific. Our captain was super flexible and would put us wherever and whatever we wanted to do. We wanted to pull in some fish with a good fight but not keep them, so he found us crevalle jacks to hook into. We had our two kids with us that wanted to see a lot marine life, so he found us sea turtles and manta rays, and took us to the most beautiful spot to snorkel. Just an amazing day out on the water!

Nicest Captain and crew. They set it up to be successful, 6 lines trolling various baits and depths. We booked a 4 hour trip.

I never have been sea sick before, but even in what seemed pretty calm water I got a little sick. Maybe the tequila the night before had something to do with it, lol. Next time I would take the anti-nausea medicine before hand. Just expect to have a good time and catch fish.

Plan on an adventure over a fishing trip and you will not be disappointed with this 8 hour trip. Lots of action closer in but, mostly smaller fish. For bigger game fish you should book a longer trip and go out further…

Having a boat with cover was essential for the heat. It was helpful to be able to move around if the water made you queasy. I would suggest to pick a boat that allows more friends than are actually planning on boarding. I also needed a bathroom nearby the day we chose to go fishing, and it was really helpful that there happened to be one on board. Definitely made the trip easier.
