Banderas Bay and the surrounding waters of the Pacific provide an amazing playground for water activities, being sport fishing one of the best! Amberjack fish, Blue Marlin, Striped Marlin, Mahi Mahi fish, Sailfish, Bass, Yellowfin Tuna, Snapper and Wahoo fish are just some of the most amazing fish that make Punta Mita at the Riviera Nayarit so attractive for both novice and seasoned fishermen. Actually, two Mexico fishing records have been established here in Riviera Nayarit, one for the 184-pound razor tooth Wahoo, and one for a huge Marlin weighing in at 709 pounds (322.2 kilos).

Many of these fish, like Red Snapper and the Crevalle Jack, can be caught year round but depending on the season, the catch varies, allowing you to enjoy of a great fishing experience all year long.

Below our recommendations for fishing spots:

  • Punta Mita Tuna Fishing – Yellowfin Tuna is the most common catch for this area but there’s also Amberjack, Roosterfish and small Pargo to be caught here. The peninsula is home to a quaint marina and a typical Punta Mita Mexico fishing vacation can end in a local restaurant cooking up your catch in a delicious dish on the white sandy beaches.
  • Marlin Fishing In Nuevo Vallarta – Only 20 minutes away by car from Punta Mita, Nuevo Vallarta provides some of the best marlin fishing vacations in Mexico, if not the world.
  • Bucerias Deep Sea Fishing – Bucerias is a charming yet simple Mexican town featuring old-fashioned cobblestone streets. While fishing in Bucerias Mexico, a short trip out to Roca Cobetena is a must. This small island is only 16 miles away and is home to barnacle-covered rocks that invite all types of Mexico’s fish and sea life.
  • Sayulita Charter Fishing – In Sayulita, Panga fishing is very popular. These small open-bow fishing boats propelled by outboard motors give sport fishermen the chance to fish for many of Mexico’s fish species while viewing remote villages, jungles and beaches of the Vallarta coast.

Another great way to experience the excitement of catching a big fish is going mano a mano with it! Yes, Spearfishing is a thrilling experience that allows you to discover the beauty of the underwater world of the area while free diving and waiting for the fish you dream of catching.

Both fishing and spearfishing are wonderful activities to try while in the area, and the best is that after the catch you can enjoy of an amazing dinner with your family and friends while sharing the exciting stories about how you got to bring that delicious dinner to the table!
