La Corbetena

La Corbetena is world famous as a fantastic fishing destination. Located about 38 miles from Marina Vallarta, La Corbetena is an undersea mountaintop surrounded by acres of smaller tuna and other "bait fish" for the bigger game fish that will challenge any angler.

They say the biggest and the best of the trophy fish can be found at La Corbetena. The Black Marlin in this area can hit up to 1000 pounds with 400 -500 pounders not unusual. The Blue Marlin compliment the Black in a similar pound range. But La Corbetena doesn't stop there, you'll also find Yellowfin Tuna of similar weights. Imagine yourself out there battling a 400 pounder, the reel spools, the rod bends and in some cases might even splinter.

Looking for more - yet another Marlin, the Striped is also here along with Wahoo and Dorado. Perhaps a prize Sailfish to mount on your wall is your goal, you'll find those too in Corbetena. Maybe your're after a Shark, you'll find those too along with Grouper, Amber Jacks, Snapper and Rainbow Runners.

Welcome to Corbetena where you'll find almost any variety of fish you desire in sizes that are sure to challenge even the most seasoned angler.

El Sequial

Banderas Bay Fishing

El Sequial is located north of La Corbeteņa and another exciting fishing area that is shaped like a table top and has been likened to a sunken football field with a length of approximately 300 meters and a depth of 60-80ft.

El Sequial is also known for the incredible drop-offs around the edges of the tabletop. Its unique shape and location is reflected in the name El Sequial, which translates into "dry area." While El Sequial itself is comparably shallow, the water around the tabletop is up to 1.5 miles deep.
