“Excellent service and Great Fun”
Review of Fishing Rebels

Attraction details
Owner description: Fishing Rebels offers fishing, whale watching, bow fishing, snorkeling & shore line tours. Charters are done on a few different vessels, Yazmin and Kate being two. Fishing Rebels has done all the footwork in commandeering the best boats and captains at fare pricing. You just reel in the benefits. Our equipment is better than 95% of the charter boats in Puerto Vallarta. Jonny brings the gear for each charter it does not sit on the boats rotting. Fishing rebels captains have been fishing these waters and beyond for 25 years, they are the top anglers in these parts. Rebels fishes the bite or whatever the customer requests. 4-6-8-10 and 12 hour charters are available. Marina Los Peines (across from Walmart) is the preferred launch location. It is possible to be picked up from the beach as well. So, let's get to fishing and have some fun.

Oscar and Johnny were great Captains. Treated our family great. Very personal and exceptional service. Would recommend them to anyone. Was the highlight of our trip and out of 6 excursions over 4 trips, this was the best.

“Incredible Day Fishing with the Boys!”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

This was the highlight of our trip. Oscar and Jonny were both great fishermen and a lot of fun to spend the day with! I would recommend them over any private fishing charter in puerto vallarta - you won't be disappointed! We caught spanish mackeral, bonitas, red snapper and jack crevalle. They filleted our fish on the way into shore and we have been cooking fish throughout the rest of the trip. Great guys with lots of knowledge and they provided a much more fulfilling adventure than any of the touristy day trips that the hotels offer. Saw quite a few whales and turtles and got the opportunity to fish around the marietta islands. They are willing to adjust to your wants/needs - whether it be leisurely fishing with some swimming/snorkeling or serious deep sea fishing. Absolutetly awesome experience overall - great for families, couples or friends!

“Great day fishing!!”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

Spent a day fishing with Oscar and Jonny in early Novmber 2012. I am a novice fisherman, and they made the trip very enjoyable and a lot of fun. We had "fish on" within an hour and caught a nice variety of fish. Even landed a beautiful sailfish. Highly recommend fishing with these guys. Professional and personable.

“Great way to spend a day!”
Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

My fiance and I go to Mexico two to three times a year and always book a fishing trip during our travels. This was our first trip to Puerto Vallarta and we could not have been happier with our charter choice. I initially made contact with Jon through emails to just to make sure everything set up prior to arrival in PV.
We wanted to do a little trolling and a little bottom fishing which that was fine with them. Everything went off without a hitch.
A big smile came across my face when the super panga pulled up to the dock. We have fished on some pretty sketchy vessels in the past, so its nice to see a clean sea ready boat pull up to the dock.
We were fully equipped with top quality gear, instructions, comfort, expectations, a crew that adapted to the conditions and we had some real good fishing too.
We spent a full day with Oscar and John (an American) and caught 20+ Spanish Mackarel, a few Bonito's, 5 Jack Crevalle's, a bunch of bottom fish too many to count and name.
Another bonus were the whales...we saw quite a few of them (10-15 pods). Some were real close within 50 yards! Even though we went for the fishing, the scenery was to die for as well. I never imagined it would be so gorgeous.
Fishing is fishing...not necessarily catching, although we had a very successful day on the water, no one can make fish bite. You can increase your odds at catching fish by setting up a charter with this stellar crew! You will not be disappointed we were not.
Keep in mind this boat does not have all the amenities of a 50 footer. If those amenities are not needed save hundreds/thousands and give them a chance.
Oscar & Jon, we will see you again later this year. Let's target them Rooster's this time!

“Greatest Fishing experience Ever!!!!!”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Thanks to Oscar's fishing charter my husband and 10 year old son had a fishing trip of a lifetime. Oscar and mate were amazing and got my boys on some great fish catching many Mahi Mahi, Spanish Mackeral and a fish of a liftime a Sailfish. They almost didn't take a fishing trip because we couldn't find the right match for them but we found the right people here and they did an amazing job taking care of my husband and son and topped our PV trip off with a huge cherry. Thanks Oscar!!!!
