La Morena II is a 29' Twin Vee Catamaran with twin 200 four stroke outboard motors, along with a cabin including a walk in bathroom and queen size bed. Catamarans move through the water with much less drag than do monohulls, therefore it cuts through choppy water with much more stability- and comfort. It is especially great for long distance trips. Enrique is both the captain and owner of the boat, and fluent in both English and Spanish. He is especially good with children and elderly.
Fishing: We have top of the line equipment: avet, shimano, and penn reels, along with outriggers and tuna tubes.
Local Offshore: Outside of Punta de Mita and Sayulita are excellent grounds for Dorado, Sailfish, Toro, Roosterfish, and Pargo (Snapper). Trips are 4-5 hours.
La Corbetena (The Rock): Located about 20 miles outside of Punta de Mita and about an hour boat ride from the Marina is “La Corbetena”. This massive rock mound with shallow reefs and steep drop off create a fisherman’s dream. La Roca Corbetena attracts Blue and Black Marlin, Yellow Fin Tuna, Pacific Sailfish, Dorado, Jack Cravelle, Mackerel, Pargo and Wahoo.
El Banco (The Banks): Even further out, the famous underwater sea mount called “El Banco” wins the gold for fishing. This famous fishing site is where the possibilities of hooking onto a 600-lb Marlin or 300-lb Tuna are at. It is a much longer trip and more hours, but well worth it.
Snorkeling: Come join us to this remote location off Punta de Mita known as Las Marietas Islands. This amazing protected marine reserve features 3 islands along with an underwater mountain range that creates a world full of reefs, swimming caves, and picturesque beaches. Dolphins, giant manta rays, sea turtles and whales (when in season) are commonly sought. The Islands are also home to several bird species such as the Blue-footed Booby. There is also the Los Arcos Islands, located south of Puerto Vallarta, which is very popular for diving and snorkeling. This protected marine preserve offers several small islands offering reefs, tunnels, caves, and arches with a wide variety of sea life.
Whale Watching: November through March, the Humpback Whales make their debut and return to the Bay of Banderas to mate and give birth to their calves. And occasionally you will see Orca's. They come down early November and leave around the end of March, which you will see the spectacular display of the humpbacks breaching the surface and put on an amazing show for the whole family. All right here, inside and outside of the Banderas Bay- and Sayulita.
