We are the best!

When our boats leave the dock we have only one goal: “Get the Fish”!

Fuel cost, lost lures, respooling reels is just part of the game, and that’s why our captains do what it takes to give you the best possible chance of boating your target fish. Late August, September and October are in my opinion the best months for Monster Yellowfin Tuna. This time is considered the High Season for Fishing here in Puerto Vallarta. With the possibility of hooking into YF Tuna over 350 lbs. a real probability! Come and see why our company-owned boats with bilingual Captains & crews use the best equipment on the market: professionally known and tested names like Calstar rods, Shimano reels, Izorline, Penn, Fluorocarbon leaders, Aftco gaffs, along with too many lures to count. We have air conditioned boats, we’re fast and comfortable. Not common on Charter Boats!
