Before Mexico was one of the world’s best known vacation destinations, most of its stunning 9,000-kilometer coastline was dedicated to subsistence fishing and peppered with quaint, sleepy fishing villages. Puerto Vallarta is a prime example of how many of these sleepy fishing villages have since turned into vacation hot spots where subsistence fishing has moved aside to make room for fishing tournaments and sports fishing tours.
Puerto Vallarta Fishing Tours
Puerto Vallarta is a fisherman’s haven located on Banderas Bay, Mexico’s largest and most beautiful bay. Puerto Vallarta Fishing tours head out daily to take advantage of the warm waters which teem with over 500 species of fish. The region has 14 or so particular species which are highly sought after – these include Red Snapper, Dorado, Roosterfish and Giant Tuna Fish which frequent the waters all year round, tempting fishermen with their size and abundance. If you are lucky, you may even find Marlin or Sailfish in the waters off Puerto Vallarta; these fish really put the town on the map as a location of interest for sports fishermen of all nationalities.
Hotel Mousai’s Fishing Tours
Hotel Mousai has a great tour agency located on site with knowledgeable staff who can inform visitors of the spectacular fishing tours and other activities that are available when you stay in Puerto Vallarta. Imagine yourself chartering a 36 ft boat for a private fishing tour or sharing it with other likeminded people for a shared fishing tour. Each trip on this boat includes the services of an experienced bilingual captain, a GPS Fish Finder, live bait, hooks, and the use of top of the line fishing rods and equipment. A catch isn’t guaranteed, of course, but the teeming waters and experience captain helps!
Aside from Hotel Mousai’s on site agency, you will also find many other companies that offer sports fishing tours, such as Mike’s Fishing Charters and Tours, Master Baiter’s Sport Fishing and Tackle, and Charly’s Sailing and Sport Fishing. Just ask the concierge for more information.
