Made our first trip to PV in early February and did extensive searches prior to find a reputable fishing charter to use while there. Came across Charly's on TA, and all the previous reviews were spot-on! Securing a boat/date/time was a breeze! Communicated with Jonathan via e-mail in the weeks before our trip, and received prompt, detailed responses to all... More

We were in Puerto Vallarta for a week & booked a Fishing trip & a day of sailing with Charly's & could not have been happier with our trips. Charly or Omar answered our e-mails usually within hrs when we had a question & even called when we had asked about some of the boats we would be on. This... More

Third year in a row with Captain Poncho. This year we hit tuna about 10 miles out past the Marriettas. Caught 5, 40 lb + yellowfins in a couple of hours. Poncho and mate Jonathan know their stuff and it's a real pleasure being on their panga. Will definitely make it again next year.

When I visited CHARLY'S SPORTFISHING and booked a trip it was with the intention of perhaps catching a marlin or at the least a sailfish. If the conditions were right this could happen. When it was time for the trip I found that the water temperature was really low and that the targeted fish were not likely in the area.... More

Charly´s Sailing & Sportfishing was a great company to work with. Jonathan was very helpful and responsive from scheduling the booking and even going as far as helping arrange transportation. He went out of his way to accommodate ever need. Not to mention Captain Cesar nearly risked his life to catch us a huge 400lb Blue Marlin! The catch was... More

This is the 2nd time I've used this company to book a deep sea fishing charter. I can say they work hard to make sure the day is the best it can be. Fishing isn't a precise science so one is never guaranteed any success. Both times the captain and first mate have worked hard to find fish and make... More

I have fished many times around the world. We went fishing with this outfit in January and December 2016. The owner Charly (Carlos) is one of the most professional and honourable businessman in Vallarta. Our first trip was not quite up to my expectations and gave them that feedback. Carlos took our feedback like a pro and took care of... More

My wife did some research prior to heading down to PV to book some excursions. In reading the reviews from TripAdvisor, she recommended that we visit Charley's and avoid all the "hey amigo" solicitations you get as you walk just about anywhere in PV. She had 3-4 in mind and was hoping that I could also squeeze in some fishing.... More

I have been working with Jonathan for years and he is honest and helps me decide what we should do. He knows what are good values and what are rip offs.

I went fishing with Charly's Sailing and Sport Fishing twice, once on the Cabo 35 for a long trip and once a super panga for a shorter trip. This is a great company to fish with. They are very knowledgeable and professional and I caught fish beyond my wildest dreams (including a 94" sailfish)! I recommend Charly's to anyone who... More
