The private whale watching trip we took through Charley’s tours was excellent. By far the best price of all trips we researched . Omar provided timely and accurate communication from beginning to end, including sending the photos of the boat our private group was to go out on and a breakdown of all the costs. He even sent a detailed map of where we were to meet him the day of our trip. We would definitely plan to use Charley’s again for future trips.

We just returned a couple weeks ago for some excellent days out fishing w.Charlys and crew.went out 4 times and caught so many fish i couldnt take pictures of them all..the highlights were 6 sailfish and numerous mahi mahi, but there were others too.

The staff and crew are always so professional that i return once or twice a year to go on the water with them.They Capts just seem to know where the fish are biting on a given day.This year we went out w Capt Jose once and Capt Poncho 3 times and the pictures speak for themselves.Besides the great fishing we had some excellent cerviche made for us with fish we caught...it doesnt get any fresher than that i tell ya.

I cant wait to return as we are always treated so well.The boats are well equipped , also have toilets and the crews speak english so that makes communicating so much easier believe me ..my spanish is minimal and i ve experienced no english boats in other places before and it makes for a long quiet day..lol

Do yourself a favor and book fishing and excursions w Charlys...they take great care of their clients.

Thank you retrojettro, It is wonderful to hear you had a great time during your recent fishing adventures with us. I heard from the crew that they also had a great time going out there and chasing & catching all the different species you guys encountered. The crew Captain Poncho and Jose...and Javier look forward to taking you out again in the near future and preparing some fresh ceviche or sashimi for you, they will prepare it on the spot and you get to choose which one you prefer on each day you go out. Again, We appreciate your kind words and business with us at Charly`s Tours. All the Best, Charly Avila

OUTSTANDING boating, fishing and sailing experience! We were barely off the dock and catching fish within 15 minutes. The captain and crew made our experience and gave our family an amazing memory! Charly was very responsive, communications werw quick and easy through WhatsApp, reserving the 31 ft Bertram is highly recommended for inshore or offshore. The highlight of the day was the crew making a phenomenal ceveche and lunch for our family. You will not be disappointed booking your fishing and sailing excursion with this company.

WE booked 2 trips with Omar from Charly's. For Fishing - We had a great time with Capt Diego! We booked the 33ft Super panga - first time on a panga and thought it would be rough, since I am normally on other bigger charter boats. But it was great and felt very safe . We each got great Mahi Mahi and a marlin got on the line and got off. Bummer that we didn't get to see Marlin. Our crew made cerviche out on the boat and it was delicious. Our second was an ATV tour that was a lot of fun. Nice to drive up in to the mountain. Had stops for lunch, drinks, tequila tasting (and we bought some!) Thank you Omar for setting this up - we had a great time!

Thank you Mnfishinggal for choosing our services at Charly`s Tours, it was a great pleasure for us to attend to your vacations needs during your stay in our little piece of paradise called Puerto Vallarta. Capt. Diego and his deckhand also had a great time with you, any day on the ocean is a reason to make it a fun day out there... I am very glad you had a chance to experience the tropical jungle and mountain side on the ATV tour, these trips are always fun!! Thank you for your kind words and we look forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Best Regards, Omar S.

Spent the day fishing with Jose and Edwin from Charly's. Wonderful day, even if the fish weren't biting as much as we would have liked. Edwin made the best ceviche we've ever had, and expertly fileted the fish we did catch so that we could take it home.

Highly recommend!

We booked a fishing trip with Charley’s tours and we had the most amazing time. So much so that my son went again 2 days later. Charly and his crew are so kind and trustworthy I felt comfortable sending my 16 year old son with them alone. The first time out we caught several barracuda and Irvin made us a delicious ceviche. Such a special experience I would rate it 10/10. When we come back to Puerto Vallarta I plan to contact Charly for all our tours.

We had a great fishing experience with Charly’s tours! Charly was great at communicating and working with us to set it up. He even made sure to have a life jacket for my 6 year old! His fishing crew (Pancho and Javier) were awesome! The fish they served on the boat from the first catch was absolutely amazing! Everyone, including my 6 year old had a great time, and they were so kind and fun!
