WHICH SITE IS RIGHT FOR ME?
In general, the further out into the Pacific Ocean you go, the bigger the fish are, the choppier the water gets, and the longer it takes to get the site. Fishing in Puerto Vallarta is much different than other destinations like Cozumel where you just troll right off the shore - you have to go to the fish. Below we'll give you our general recommendations for fishing in Puerto Vallarta.
For excellent specific recommendations and personal customer service, give us a call toll-free from the U.S. and Canada 24 hours a day at
and we'll help you decide what's right for you.

El Morro - Recommended for those who want the best deep sea fishing possible in 8 hours in Puerto Vallarta, run as a combo trip with the Marietas Islands.
