Living the life on Banderas Bay
Let us introduce you to the lifestyle you never imagined, you will be amazed at the natural beauty the area has to offer. This giant horseshoe bay has over 100 km’s of coastline and is Mexico’s largest bay.
This protected bay is rated as one of the world’s best sport fishing areas for Tuna, Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Snapper, Roosterfish, Crevalle Jack, and Wahoo. Many of the smaller species of fish can be caught after only a short boat ride from the shore. It's a stunning body of water 20 miles wide and suitable for any water toy or vessel you could think of.
There are plenty of options for sport fishing that will fit any budget - from executive style fishing yachts to pangas. For an awesome day of light fishing, take a panga from Punta de Mita and fish the Marietta Islands. On the north side of Punta de Mita you’ll find a small marina of pangas. They will have you - lines in the water - within ten minutes. Prices for a panga and captain are around $50 US per hour.
During the months from November to April you can spot marine life from the beaches, terraces and tours. In fact, Banderas Bay offers some of the world's most majestic humpback whale watching opportunities anywhere. See humpback whales spouting, breaching and tail slapping. There’s a lot more to see, though. This magnificent bay is also home to a large population of dolphins, manta rays, sea turtles, exotic tropical fish and the blue footed Boobie birds located on the Marietta Islands.
If sailing is your choice, there is no better place in Mexico. This is true whether you are experienced or a first timer. Sailing classes or personal training on a sailboat are offered by companies in Puerto Vallarta Marina and La Cruz de Huanacaxtle Marina. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at how fast the sailboats move across the bay with a steady supply of wind. With this large body of water and afternoon winds, the stage for a perfect day on the bay is set.
