Review of: Full-Day Deep-Sea Fishing in Puerto Vallarta
We had a great time with Captain Pete, Luis, and Ramon. These guys really know their stuff and they make you feel very welcome. The scheduling was super easy (we did the full day option), reasonably priced and the customer service was excellent. Lunch was provided for us, of… read more course we caught a bunch of fish, and then Ramon made us ceviche with the fresh fish right there on the boat. We saw tons of dolphins and whales – they were so close! Just overall a great day. We will definitely be back to fish on this boat.

Great crew, rough day on the water
During February of 2019 at a fundraising event for the orphanage Corazon de Nina, I won a 6 hour fishing trip with Captain Pete. Although the trip was to be utilized in the next 6 months, after speaking to Capt. Pete and explaining I would like to use it during the following… read more Christmas with my two sons he readily extended the deadline.
One December 21st the three of us went fishing on the Dos Amigos. Wanting to try for big fish we purchased an additional 2 hours and went well into the ocean. The conditions were extremely “choppy”. Now, I don’t get sea sick, but that day I was lying in the forward cabin most of the day. The crew worked their “butts” off and both my sons caught fish. One mahi mahi and one jack went into the box. If you want to fish, or just take a long leisure boat ride with the family, Capt. Pete is the guy to talk to. As he told me, “I’m from Texas, and I won’t give you any BS”, and he didn’t. When we go fishing again Capt. Pete will be my first call.

Review of: Full-Day Deep-Sea Fishing in Puerto Vallarta
Little late in writing this since we went before the Coronavirus shut everything down. We booked an 8-hr trip on the Dos Amigos and had a great time. Louise and Superstar Ramone were very friendly and worked hard to get us on fish. We tried for a marlin, but even though we… read more saw a few were unable to hook up. We caught a couple Bonito and spanish mackerel, which was great because we wanted something to take back to the resort to eat that night. We’ve booked charters in other locales and this one has been the best yet. We had no problem communicating….Louis and Ramone speak very good english even though they think they don’t. Ramone’s ceviiche is mucho bueno!

This year was my 4th time out with Capt Pete. It was the most epic trip I have ever had on the water. We pulled in a lot of fish and lost some big ones as well. We caught marlin, sailfish, mahi-mahi and Bonita’s. We saw everything in the ocean that day. Turtles, whales, manta… read more rays as big as a boat and too many dolphins to count. The crew made the day so much fun. They took care of us like we were family. The ceviche was delicious as always. It would be hard to find anyone better to take you fishing. Thanks for the great day Capt Pete.

My husband and I took our son fishing with Luis and Ramone on the Dos Amigos. We had never gone off -shore fishing before and the guys were great. Super friendly. Taught us a lot about fishing. Saw a bunch of whales and caught some nice sized fish.

Great crew and equipment, plus they put us on the fish!!
Soon as we got on the boat Pete told us we couldn’t come back till we either drank all the beer or filled the box with fish. with in 1 hour of our 6 hr. trip we had filled the box with hammer jacks. we then switched up the gear for larger fish but had no luck. on the way back… read more in they put us on the fish again but we lost it. So we had to finish the beer!! hats off to our captain Paco and first mate Fernando! Once we got back to the marina Fernando cut up one fish and the local restaurant by the marina cooked it up for us three different ways with all the side dishes as well. I would recommend this crew to anyone. when we go back, Pete will be my first phone call!

If you want to catch fish go with Capt. Pete!
What an awesome day with Captain Pete and his crew! We caught a huge sailfish and even had a rare double triple (3 fish on 2 lines)! And, we got to see several mama whales with their newborn babies!! If you want to catch fish and have a great time doing it definately go with… read more Captain Pete Vines! Thanks for the memories, Pete! We’ll be back!

Capt. Pete’s crew put me on the fish!
I contacted Captain Pete prior to coming down to Puerto Vallarta to book a couple of days of deep sea fishing while here. I admit that I am somewhat of a hardcore fisherman when I get a chance to do it, and realize that the best spots to fish here require at least a 10 to 12… read more hour day to have a chance at the type of big game fishing I want. (I am not interested in bonito or skipjack nearshore fishing unless they are used live as marlin or large tuna bait!) The first day we went to El Bajo, an underwater bank, roughly 50 miles from the harbor. The second day we motored out to La Corbetena, a rock outcrop approximately 33 miles from the harbor. The crew was friendly, knowledgeable, professional and absolutely dedicated to making the trip productive and putting us on the fish. We trolled a variety of baits during both days and had success both days. I did not check the lunar calendar before I made my reservations. (It was during a full moon which usually negatively impacts fishing because predators can see their prey all night long!) Bottom line: on day one I caught 1 really nice sized sailfish and a very decent size mahi mahi and the largest sail fish I’ve caught in my life and 4 nice mahi mahi on the second day. I highly recommend Capt. Pete and his crew and will fish with them again in the in the future!

Great day of fishing
Book a fishing trip in hopes of getting the big one! Luís and Pablo got us into many fish, although no trophies this time. But we had an excellent time and will most likely be looking them up when we’re in PV next year. Thanks for a great day! The cievche he was outstanding.

Puerto Vallarta Fishing – Capt Pete
I contacted Captain Pete a few months before our trip and he was quick to respond and was very informative. We kept in touch up to the time we left on our vacation. The day we went fishing it was raining but we were greeted with smiling faces and a positive attitude. The crew… read more had our family catching fish as soon as the lines hit the water. Unfortunately the fish did slow down toward the last part of our charter but the crew worked very hard to try and get us into more fish. The crew made us delicious ceviche that was enjoyed by all. They cleaned and bagged some of our catch to take home which was fantastic. On our way back to the marina we were able to enjoy the sights of the beautiful humpback whales with their little ones. If anyone is considering a fishing charter you can’t go wrong with this crew. Our family high recommend this charter. I can’t wait till we can go again. Hopefully in better weather but considering our day it was absolutely amazing. A big thank you to you Captain Pete and your crew.

My wife has always wanted to catch a fish bigger than her so we booked a day with Captain Pete. Her first cast caught a fish and her last she caught a nice 40 lbs yellow tuna that she fought for 20 minutes. Fishing was slow but the crew kept working. We saw dolphins and whales… read more and the crew made the best salsa while we were fishing.
It was a great time and Capt. Pete and crew were outstanding. We will be back to fish with Capt. Pete and crew to catch that really big one.

Great Day On The Water
Capt Pete organized a great day out fishing in PV. He was super helpful and responsive to emails leading up to our fishing trip. Once there his guys did not stop trying to put us on the fish, continually trying live baits and different lures to find what the fish were wanting… read more. We caught a lot of fish, and saw countless whales and dolphins. Can’t wait to come back to try again for a marlin or sailfish!

Successful day fishing the Big One!
Our family of 6 (4 adult children) had a wonderful adventure at sea in PV with Captain Luis and first Mate Fernando on Dos Amigos on Dec 22, 2019. Weather could not be more perfect and the fishing action was phenomenal. Not only did we catch Mahi mahi, Bonito, Blue fin tuna… read more, Yellow fin tuna, and the prize of our trip a 92″ Sailfish! but we also saw many whales breaching near and far, dolphins swimming near our boat, a sea turtle, a huge manta ray fish and many fly fishes. We must have picked the best day to go fishing! Luis and Fernando were top notch professional fishermen. Keen eye on spotting the fish and always on guard for a tug on any of the many reels that are set up to increase chances of catching the Big One! It certainly was the highlight of our holiday to Puerto Vallarta and I’m sure we will be doing this again in the future. Fernando….if you need a career change in the future, you could try becoming a chef! That tuna sushi you served up for us on board was “muy deliciosa”! And the filets of Mahi Mahi and Bonito that we took home were excellent eating also! We look forward to the arrival of our mounted Sailfish from Gray’s Taxidermy to remind us of our great fishing experience in PV!
