Located along the coast
of Banderas Bay, Puerto Vallarta is one of the finest
sport fishing destinations in the world. Different types
of fish abound at different times of the year, including
Black, Blue and Striped Marlin, Dorado, Sailfish, Red
Snapper, Wahoo, Billfish and Tuna, among others.
Puerto Vallarta holds its annual International Sailfish & Marlin
Tournament (since 1956), bringing in fishermen from
all over the world aiming to catch 1000-lb marlins or
800-lb tunas. We offer the most competitive rates with
the finest fleet in town, boasting of an experienced
bilingual crew and the best customer service. Do not
miss out on a great catch with our discounted prices
and remember: we fish because we love it!
Q: I'M ON A CRUISE SHIP - WILL
YOU PICK ME UP AT THE PIER? A: No, the cruise ships have contracts with certain
companies who pay big money to be able to pick up at
the pier - that's why the cruise excursions are so much
more expensive. To get to the fishing marina, just take
a taxi from the pier about five to ten minutes. Taxis
are all lined up waiting for you at the pier. Q: WILL I GET SEASICK? A: We always recommend taking a seasickness supplement
like Bonine or 24 hour Dramamine an hour before departure.
If you do this, and don't drink too much the night before,
you should be fine. Q: WHERE IS THE BEST FISHING LOCATED? A: The biggest fish are normally found at The
Banks and Corbetena. However, we also get very good
catches at Punta Mita (Marietas Islands) and El Morro.
The fish inside the bay are generally smaller, so we
recommend people head outside the bay. Q: WHAT IS THE BEST TIME TO FISH FOR...? A: Check out our Fishing Calendar for seasons.
