I found Charly's here on trip advisor and contacted them before our trip in May. I emailed several times with Jonathan Peinado and got some preliminary pricing on fishing tours for my family of 6. I did not finalize the booking until we got to Mexico but after hearing the deals our hotel offered and the deals our Fun Jet rep offered, I immediately called Jonathan and booked his tour. It was a MUCH! better price than anything else we were offered. We took a cab to the lighthouse in the marina in Puerto Vallarta to meet Jonathan at his shop. He even walked down to meet us at the cab so we could easily find his shop. He was not open for business but was willing to meet us on a Sunday afternoon to make sure the tour was booked. If you are doing other tours in the area, check with Charly's first. Your hotel will be working with one company in particular and the rep from your trip most likely will too. Although we had already booked a few things for the family to do through the funjet guy at our hotel, I regretted not talking to Jonathan first. he had information on a variety of tours that would have been a better fit fro may family than what we were offered. I strongly recommend talking to Charly's first before making your bookings.
The boat Jonathan found us was beautiful. There was plenty of room for the six of us. The captain was very nice and the mate was very hardworking and knowledgeable about the fish in the area and how to catch them. We were at sea for 8 hours and everyone one of us caught at least one large fish and lots of little ones. The boys in a party had a blast. I will say that if you are not a big fisher person, 8 hours at sea s a long time. I think around 4 would have been fine for me and the girls but the larger fish are further out at sea and you need the longer tour to get our to where the fish are. I would highly recommend this tour company for all your travel need while in Puerto Vallarta. Thanks Jonathan for giving my family a very memorable day.
