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

From the beginning, Jonathan and Omar are class operators. Answered all of my questions, made suggestions and included picture of him so we would know who we were dealing with. We had a 40 ft Sea Ray for a 6 hr trip with Captain Jaime and his sons. There were 8 adults in our group ( 7 fisher persons and... More

Great company to book a sport fishing trip with. This was my 4th time booking with Juan (11 days of fishing in total). I have fished many times in Mexico and other countries . I find Juan to be honest and goes the extra mile to make sure things go right. I highly recommend you use Juan to book your... More

Charly's Sport Fishing is awesome! Juan is very helpful and will go the extra mile if you need it. We took out the 28 foot super panga with Jose. The captain and crew were helpful and worked hard to find the fish. We caught a 60 to 70 lb rooster fish, Bonitas, and barracuda. Overall great trip and we will... More

I used Charly's to book a fishing charter on short notice (2 days) and couldn't be happier with service, attentiveness, etc I received. From reading reviews on Trip Advisor, I asked for Jonathon, who is from California, due to fact that I knew he spoke English. The gentleman who answered my call spoke English as well, but when I mentioned... More
