Fishing Charters in Puerto Vallarta
Fishermen will know what I’m talking about, the massive rush of adrenalin you get when something big takes the bait and line begins to scream of the spool. Everyone on board springs into action, winding in lines, the skipper throttles back the engines, you get strapped into the chair and that special moment when you pull back sharply on the rod setting the hook and finally feel the weight of the big fish below. If that is a sensation you know well or would like to experience, then a fishing charter in Puerto Vallarta is the perfect way to experience it.
The warm waters around Puerto Vallarta are teeming with fish, big black and blue marlin, yellowfin tuna,mahi-mahi, sailfish, grouper and snapper to name but a few.
