You can't get better than Captain Pete. We've been fishing with him for over 4 years 2-4 times a year. He never ceases to AMAZE us. Aside from catching tons of awesome and big fish he always finds a way to find us dolphins and our whales among other sea creatures. You'll wish the day isn't over when it comes to an end. He has now become a dear friend over the years and I couldn't be more thankful. If you don't book with Captain Pete you'll regret missing that experience..... it's more than just fishing it's an adventure.

This was our 2nd time booking with Capt . Pete on the Dos Amigos and 2nd time with Luis as our captain (He even remembered us from last year). Started the day out trying to jig for some snapper where they caught some the day before but no luck. I had something hit right away while I was still letting line out, and without the bail being closed it spooled line off the reel and made a heck of a rats nest which took Luis and Juan some time to get that untangled.... We didn't have any luck jigging and started trolling. We caught some Jack Crevalle, Spanish Mackerel, and Green Fish. For awhile we didn't even have time to drink a beer we were catching mackerel and green fish so fast. We saw some whales, sea lions, and turtles while out too. We had a great time again with Luis and Jaun. And, of course, the fresh ceviche and guacamole on the boat is the best! We'll be booking again when we return to Puerto Vallarta. We even recommended Capt Pete to some new friends we met on the beach and he graciously accomodated them with a trip the next day. See you next time!

Todd Thanks for coming out with us again. The highest compliment you can give any charter company is to return for another trip.. we love having new customers but have or 50 % returning clients every year. We provide top notch service and living in Puerto Vallarta well who would not want to return to such a friendly city. See you next time you are in Puerto Vallarta Mexico Capt Pete and crews

Our trip with Juan and Luis was more than outstanding!! They are very honest about the reality of fishing and let you know you may or may not catch fish, but they put us on the fish. We caught skipjacks, Spanish mackerel as well as landing a beautiful striped marlin!!!! We saw whales, dolphins and even a turtle. They are extremely knowledgeable and made us feel like we were on the team. Juan made the most delicious ceviche out of the fresh marlin, best I have ever eaten. Top notch at what they do and captain Pete will provide a wonderful experience. Thank you so much for making my dream of catching a marlin happen!! My family will definitely be back to try for the black, blue marlin as well as sailfish!!!

What an awesome experience I had recently with Captain Pete and his crew. My wife surprised me with a last minute birthday gift of a trip to Puerto Vallaratta and encouraged me to do one of my bucket list items of deep sea fishing. Something I never did but always had a desire to do. Three of my good friends also surprised me with them accompanying me to Puerto Vallaratta to experience my deep fishing adventure. The challenge was that this surprise was a spur of moment with really no time to make arrangements for deep sea fishing. I went to trip advisor and read a number of reviews on different ships but Captain Pete’s reviews got my attention right away. So the day I arrived in PV I contacted Captain Pete and told him of my wife’s gift and that I had three friends with me and we were only going to be here a week. I shared with him that I really wanted to celebrate my birthday with my friends and the memory of doing one of the items on my bucket list. Captain Pete told me that it was a holiday weekend in Mexico and his boats were booked but he told me that he would work with me to find a date if all possible. Well Captain Pete is a man of his word and low and behold he was able to accommodate my bucket list dream (and it was on my birthday-wow) how awesome. He meet me at the pier and my deep sea fishing adventure happened beyond my widest dream. We had a great time and his crew helped my friends and I catch several different species of fish. His guys did a fantastic job of creating a long lasting memory for my birthday. Captain Pete and his crew even surprised me with A birthday cake. Captain Pete and his crew definitely are a reflection of why I love the people of Puerto Vallaratta. The city is beautiful but it is the heart of the People of PV that reflects a desire to make you feel special. The skipper (Juan)and Louis (his assistant) did an outstanding job. We interacted with Juan the most and he always worked to make out adventure special So as you consider creating a memory focused on deep sea fishing in PV, I highly recommend Captain Pete and his crew. I was not disappointed and I expect your experience to be similar to mine
