Get on board Calypso and enjoy your day out on the beautiful Mexican waters out of Puerto Vallarta! Captain Ariel Rosen has been fishing in the area since he was a kid, so he knows these waters like the back of his hand. He’ll make sure you have an amazing time.

The Calypso, his 30’ center console boat, is powered by twin 150 Mercury 4 stroke outboard engines. This gives it plenty of power to take you offshore in search of some monsters. Not to worry about sunny days, as there’s lots of shade on board. The boat can accommodate up to 4 anglers.

Capt. Ariel will have Avett, Shimano, and Penn fishing equipment ready for you. You’ll find tuna tubes, outriggers, downriggers, and 2 fighting chairs on board, so you’ll maximize your chances of reeling in those huge specimens! Take your catch back home to the table – the captain will be happy to clean and fillet the fish for you.

There’s a lot of trips you can choose from, depending on how much time you want to spend on the water, as well as which grounds you want to visit. The area is brimming with marine life, so there are opportunities for whale watching and snorkeling.

When it comes to fishing, there’s always something to target. You’ll try to reel in species like Mahi Mahi, Roosterfish, Snapper, Sailfish, Wahoo, Tuna, Marlin, Barracuda, Jack Crevalle, and King Mackerel. The crew supports catch and release when it comes to all Billfish.

The number one specialty tour on Calypso is a day in Yelapa. This trip includes a little bit of everything – fishing, whale watching, and snorkeling. Up to 8 people are welcome, so it’s the perfect family day. The crew loves new adventures and showing you this beautiful bay!

Join the experienced bilingual crew of Calypso, and have an unforgettable experience on these prolific Mexican waters!

I have been on a boat and on the water all of my life, but have only been in the charter business for 12 years. My passion comes from seeing a passenger on my boat with a big fat smile when they get that nice fish on board, and showing everybody the beauty of Banderas Bay – my backyard. This makes me the happiest person alive! My favorite fishing style is going for big fish with small/light tackle. The determination that you need to bring in a 100lb Tuna on light tackle is what makes fishing exciting. I believe you need to be holding a rod when you’re fishing, not just looking at it. I love trolling but there's nothing like casting or popping for big Roosterfish or Snapper!
