How to Fish in Manzanillo
Make a reservation with a charter fishing company. Two tour operators are Ocean Pacific Adventures, with two boats that can accommodate ten and five respectively, and Luckiest 2, a 38foot Bertram Sport Fisher that can accommodate up to 12 people. All have experienced instructors on board, who will offer assistance based on your knowledge of the sport. Bait, gear and tackle are included with your reservation, but you must call directly for pricing information. Both leave from La Perlita dock in downtown Manzanillo. you can contact Ocean Pacific Adventures +011 (52) 3143350605 or Luckiest 2 at +011 (52) 3143571044.
Ask THE charter fishing company whether they provide music and food, as each tour operator's policies are different. Many suggest you pack a lunch for your fivehour trip, while others provide it. Some have stereo equipment and ask you to bring your favorite CDs to listen to while you enjoy your day.
Take antinausea medication if you are prone to seasickness prior to leaving your hotel. Tour operators also sell sea sickness bands on board if the ocean is rougher than you expect or if you experience firsttime seasickness.
